I booked the cottage last minute in order to visit family nearby with my parents. Upon arrival we found out the heating needed sorted but Siobhan and Hugh were already on the way to make sure all was well and driving through storm Ophelia to do so!
They could not have been more helpful and they have made a beautiful job of the house. The decor is tasteful, beds comfortable and personal touches like chocolates on arrival show the attention to detail. The central location is great too. We hope to be back and would recommend the house heartily to visitors to Moville and around. Only thing missing was a cafetiere!
Really close to village centre and lovely coffee shops and pubs.House spotless and fantastic for families. Private parking and open fire. Internet a bit slow but worked fine.
We stayed in palmtree cottage for a week, 2 ad 3 kids. It's a really lovely house, much the nicest we've ever rented. Really clean and very well equipped, and a lovely touch was the prosecco and milk tray that awaited us! Moville is beautiful, especially the shore walk. The house is easy walking distance from the village , which is small but we enjoa couple of nice evenings out in Rosatos bar and restaurant. Biddys fast food does lovely chipper food and big portions but I didn't like their pizzas, rosatos for the pizza!
Moville is a good location to visit the north,we took the ferry from nearby Greencastle across to go to the giants causeway, the crossing costs €16 return for a car. We took the bus to Derry from moville, cost €34 for all of us return and was really handy . It's only about half an hour to Derry and we really enjoyed Derry especially the Walls walking tour which I shall review later. Overall, I really recommend Palmtree as a location and as a great value rental!
First time in Moville and we stayed at Palmtree cottage which was in an ideal location a few minutes walk from the lovely shore walk , harbour , swing park and local shops. We had a lovely week. The cottage was spacious and we really enjoyed the outdoor space. Hope to return again one day . Thanks to the thoughtful owner who left us wine and chocolates on our arrival which was a lovely surprise.
Lovely cottage well equipped with everything you could need, short walk into town and the coastal path - would recommend this lovely place.
This cottage had many pluses. Its location is within easy walking distance of the centre of Moville. Its sitting room and dining kitchen are very comfortable and the kitchen was well provided with all the pots and utensils you could need. Only a few minuses prevent us from rating this property higher: the double bed in the main downstairs bedroom was very uncomfortable and lacked proper mattress support. We were met with a slightly damp, musty smell on arrival which dissipated over the week once aired. Disappointingly the garden area totally lacked privacy due to the location of a large house at the rear which is not evident from the photographs. As a base for exploring beautiful County Donegal it is more than adequate.
Palmtree Cottage is in a beautiful village of Moville in North Donegal. The area is quite stunning, with beautiful coastline. Moville is kept very clean and tidy and is a credit to the locals. There is a lovely walk along the coast to next village, Greencastle. This is a must do!! There are several rest areas on the walk and for all dog lovers, ye are well catered for too, with ample supply of poop bags etc.
The Cottage has all amenities that one can possibly need, ie, TV, CD player, lots of books, mags and games. All kitchen utilities supplied. Also free internet access, word of warning here, Please follow owners instructions as regards to Vodafone dongle supplied. Do not download films, songs, etc as this uses up the monthly fee paid by owner very quickly, hence next tenant will suffer as they wont have internet access AT ALL.
All in all, the accommodation here is very comfortable and we had a very pleasant stay.
