“Perfect pet-friendly, affordable Donegal sanctuary!”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We were welcomed by Anita into a beautifully kept, spotlessly clean warm and comfortable house set in its own grounds in the townland of Derryreel. The house was spacious, well equipped and beautifully maintained. Nearby the villages of Dunfanghy and Falcarragh had plenty of interesting shops and eateries and hosted some of the most beautiful scenery Donegal has to offer, a trip round Horn Head is highly recommended! The house is quite remote which suited us perfectly and the wind can whip up quite ferociously, but that is something we loved about the place, and bear in mind we stayed in February! Altogether a wonderful weekend getaway, at a very realistic affordable price, we would definitely stay again, but house would need wi-fi to enable us to stay for longer trips.

Thank you so much for this great review, much appreciated. Sorry about the WI-FI, most of our guests do not want it so we made the decision not to install it, as guest told us a mobile dongle will do a great job , we are sorry it spoiled your stay a little.

“Weekend break”
Reviewed 30 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Arrived on friday afternoon to an amazing little cottage. Anita is so welcoming you will feel comfortable straight away. Cottage is spotless and we couldnt find one fault at all. The views are fantastic and you are completely on your own which is what we like. We were extremley lucky to see wild deers which were amazing to watch. You really must go here. Excellent all round. Thank you very much anita for a brilliant weekend.

“The Sanctuary that is Derryreel Cottage”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Have just spent the most amazing four days at this spotlessly clean and comfortable cottage were we wanted for nothing, from the tea coffee and biscuits to the fresh flowers, coal and logs for those wonderful cosy autumn fires.
We spent days exploring all that this beautiful part of Donegal has to offer from the majestic mountains to the stunning beaches and quaint little pubs with roaring peat and log laden fires. Correspondence with the owners was second to none always available if we needed them. We found
the only downside to staying at Derryreel Cottage is the fact we had to leave.
Will we return.....without doubt

Fine location close to hills and Muckish. And not far from superb beaches, especially the one at Falcarragh. Very clean and tidy on arrival, spacious, comfortable, well equipped and well furnished. Hope to return in 2017.
