William & Jennifer have been married for 30 years, we have three grown up sons. We have lived in Donegal all our lives, indeed our families can be recorded back to 18th century in this region - I guess we are local! Willie took early retirement in 2010 having worked in Telecommunications and Jennifer is now a full time housewife having worked as a Child Support Worker. We now have a small working farm on which we breed Connemara ponies and some Aberdeen Angus cattle.
In March of 2012 we acquired a little Cottage down the road from where we live. The Cottage was in good condition and so after only some minor alteration and redecoration “Wild Rose Cottage' came into being. It is a very cosy Cottage, clean warm and with everything necessary to make your holiday enjoyable. It stands on its own half acre site, peaceful and quite even though it is only a 5min walk into the local village of Dunkineely.
Wild Rose Cottage is a 100 year old traditional stone cottage which has been upgraded over the years to a comfortable / cosy home while still retaining some of its old style.

There is Satellite TV and a DVD player if you need it and also WiFi Internet to catch up with friends and family back home. The cottage is ideally located to access many of our beautiful beaches , breathtaking mountains and other scenic drives or if you prefer to browse in the many craft shops in the nearby towns and villages.
