“Fabulous holiday home from home for doggies & humans”

We have just returned with our 3 doggie babies from a 10 day stay at Dusty's place. We travelled by car from Fife crossing with the ferry from Cairnryan to Larne, then a 2 hour drive to the house. It was a long day for all but well worth it. We received a warm welcome and the house was great, lots of space and very comfortable. The garden is brilliant for playing football with dogs and very safe. We enjoyed having the stove on in the lounge in the cold evenings. The beaches are fabulous and much enjoyed by doggie surfers. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. We will return!

“Perfect dog friendly and family accommodation”

We recently spent a week in Dusty's Place with our Cocker Spaniel and extended family from NI and England. Everyone had a ball - the house is great, and the garden is ideal for canine family members to run around (and bark at the nearby sheep and cows!!). The nearby beaches are excellent, especially Culdaff, but worth knowing that as it is Blue Flag, dogs should be on a lead in the summer months. We will definitely plan to be back at some point in the future!

“Peace and quiet in doggy heaven :-)”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

First time going on holiday with the furbabies, why have I waited so long! Lazy mornings eating breakfast letting the puppies walk out and in the big garden, a different beach every afternoon for them to play on, then dinner and stretched out in front of the fire!

Staying on my own I felt safe and secure, the pups certainly weren't going anywhere. The only incident was the mystery of the vanishing sock, which was found behind the shed!

Went home with two very happy and tired Irish setters :-)

“Superb dog friendly place”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just returned from a week at Dusty's Place, and we all had a great time. Mist, our Border Collie, had a fantastic stay, the totally enclosed HUGE back garden meant Mist could go out and play without us having to worry if she was escaping! She loved having a woof or two at the solitary sheep in the next field too!

The whole house is very comfortable, and is well equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. Dusty's has a great stock of DVD's and books, and the peat for the fire is a thoughtful and welcome touch, as even in summer, it can get chilly at night!

“It was everything they said it was”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Lovely house off the beaten track but still an easy stroll to the nearest pubs. With 4 large dogs travelling is always an issue for us but the house and garden were very spacious and comfortable. The house was very clean and decor was bright and fresh. Location is grand for getting to well, everywhere. Maps and local info on arrival were very helpful. Booking was easy and communication with the owners was excellent. Would recommend.

“The ideal holiday stay for dogs and their owners.”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

The reviews we read before booking Dusty's Place are spot on. The house was really comfortable and spacious. There is loads of books, DVDs and games provided for those rainy days.

The large enclosed garden was a big hit with our 2 dogs who spent a lot of time chasing each other around it. It's so hard to find a property suitable for 2 dogs, usually the gardens are open and we have to put our dogs on leads to take them into the garden.. To be able to open the back door and just let them run free was so enjoyable for them and us.

We had a lovely welcome pack which included very special biscuits for our dogs and Moe and Lady really enjoyed them.

The location of the house is so close to beaches and walks it is an ideal holiday venue for owners and their dogs. There is so much to do and explore around Inishowen.

Eileen has been really helpful and very prompt to reply to any queries I had when I was booking Dusty's Place with her. Eileen even contacted us on our return home to make sure we had enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back.

“We Love It!”

We've been to Dusty's 3 or 4 times now and we love it more every time! The house is huge with an open fire and of course the best part is your dog is welcome. There's maps and brochures in the welcome pack which are really helpful. It's far enough off the beaten track to be private but close enough (driving distance) to amazing beaches and places like Malin Head. Beautiful house and location.
