“Great hospitality by Willie and Jennifer in one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland!”

Willie and Jennifer really looked after us my brother and I we were catching up with cousins and mates from high school in the local area for a stag do. The cottage is in a great location in Dunkineely and has all the amenities you would need. The local pubs in the area were amazing and filled with the friendliest people you'd ever meet. The best part of the entire holiday other then the immaculate condition of the cottage was the great communication by Willie and Jennifer to ensure we enjoyed our stay in Donegal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Wild Rose Cottage! Every tiny detail had been thought out. Jennifer had a great eye for decorating. Willie was very friendly and made us feel most welcome. We also enjoyed the local pub, Mary Mullins. The gent who runs it was very helpful and entertaining and the food was outstanding. Salmon, cod and mussells in a creamy saffron sauce! Yummy! We would definately stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

“Everything you need and more”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I had the pleasure of staying here with my parents and my teenage daughter. The cottage has everything you would need. The kitchen is fully equipped- even though it is small you have it all. The decorations are very pleasing and make the cottage feel like a home instead of a rental. The cottage is quiet and away from it all but is a very easy walk to town. The town has several pubs and a good restaurant and a small but well equipped store with basic food items incase you don't want to go to the 'big city' of Donegal. Willie and Jennifer made us feel more like family than renters. They were there if you needed anything without being intrusive. There is a washer and dryer which is good for the Irish rainy days. The wifi was available without incident which is a must for a teenager. The cottage has 3 bedrooms so we all had our privacy when family time got too much. There is a lovely sitting area to enjoy the day with a cup of tea. Willie has put together a guide of the surrounding area including tourist places, restaurants, and pubs that he recommends. He also has many Ireland guides available to look at if you need help to plan a day trip. I had a marvelous time and can't wait to return to see everything I missed.

“Peaceful, Relaxing & Conveniently Located”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The cottage is quiet and relaxing, yet conviently located to permit easy access to all the beautiful spots in Northwest Ireland. It is a real pleasure to awaken each morning with a view of cows and horses grazing in fields out front and so peaceful to sit out back reading and drinking tea. It is a short walk into the village of Dunkineely where you may acquire all the basics needed and it is only a 15 minute drive in either direction for needs that exceed basic. Dunkineely is home to several pubs and one pretty good cafe. The owners, Jennifer & Willie have gone out of the way to ensure your stay will be enjoyable. They make you feel as if you are family. The cottage is very clean, comfortably furnished and well equipped. The available wi-fi works well and allows you convenient access to friends and family back home. We are staying two weeks and would love to return for more.
