Owner's Response: Delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Brachan Brae Cottage, Lough Eske.
The cottage is very spacious and we find that guests love to relax in the sun-room.
The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking and guests can also enjoy fishing at Lough Eske or a round of golf at Donegal Golf Club, Murvagh.
Great to see that the children enjoyed the wee lamb & seeing our Sheep Dog "Fly" in action.
Thanking you for your comments and looking forward to seeing you again in the future.

3 great days at Lough Eske

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Brachan Brae for 3 nights to attend a family wedding reception at Harvey's Point. We can wholeheartedly recommend the house, which completely lived up to our expectations. The views over Lough Eske are superb, the house is spacious - particularly the kitchen/dining area/conservatory to the left of the hosue in the main picture, where we entertained over 20 people on the last day of our stay.
Patsy and Mairead visited us twice to see that all was OK. Shopping for groceries best done at Lidl on the Donegal Ring Road or Supervalu in Donegal Town.

Donegal Delights

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place for a family holiday! We were varying numbers of adults, up to 7, plus a toddler and a babe in arms. The house was perfect - bright, spacious, comfortable, incredibly well equipped, with a brilliant child-friendly garden space - complete with wandering goat herd!. The location was amazing with stunning views and we loved Donegal and the surrounding area.

Our hosts were so lovely - nothing was too much trouble.

We had other friends staying nearby and we entertained often - with them always preferring to use Brachan Brae as the base for our evenings as it was so spacious and well-equipped.

Hope we can come back soon! Gill Johnston and family, June 2011.

Very comfortable house in great location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this house over New Year and had a wonderful time. We were so pleasantly surprised with the size and comfort of the house and the location looking out over the lake was gorgeous. It is within walking distance of Lough Eske Castle and Harveys Point hotels and perfect for anyone attending weddings at either location.
We were a party of 8 but this house would comfortably accommodate 10.
We are hoping to return at some time in the future and would absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

great house, peaceful location

  • 5 of 5
This house had absolutely loads of room for 8 adults and one toddler to spend a week - everything was perfectly clean and well-maintained with comfortable, solid furniture in every room, including a lovely bright conservatory opening to the outside picnic area - where we spent most of our time.

Very high standard accommodation - would highly recommend it.
