About Jennifer and Willie Mackey
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.
Jennifer and Willie Mackey purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Jennifer and Willie Mackey chose Dunkineely
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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. Whether you wish you chill out in the garden with a glass of wine or relax in front of the open fire you will not be disappointed. There is a 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. We have many award winning Restaurants to choose from in the area as well as many traditional Irish Pubs where you can join the locals in a nights music and craic. For the sports enthusiast there is Golf, Fishing, Pony Riding, Scuba Diving and Mountain Walking just to mention a few .

Above And Beyond
We have stayed in many accommodations throughout North America, the Caribbean and Europe. The Wild Rose Cottage is one of the best. Jennifer has thought of everything a traveller needs. A lot of other hosts could learn from her. Thanks so much Jennifer and Willie.

The cottage is very homely and very well equiped
We had a wonderful time. The cottage is very comfortable and we appreciated all the information on the area and how to operate items in the house. (A lot of places lack this kind of detail). Willie and Jennifer made us feel very welcome.
Thank you very much, glad you enjoyed your stay
Wonderful warm, cozy cottage in a lovely, pastoral setting.
We enjoyed our stay so much in Dunkineely and Jennifer and Willie were so accommodating. The cottage had everything we needed and the location was very convenient to Donegal Town and all of the sights in County Donegal! We just loved it!
Thank you Robert and glad you both enjoyed your stay
CLEAN, CONVENIENT, COMFORTABLE, AND COMPLETE
We had stayed at this property in 2013 so this was a bit like coming home for us. The owners, Willie and Jennifer, are responsive and really go the extra mile to ensure their guests are completely satisfied. You are treated more as a friend than a guest. They had made some excellent changes to the cottage since our previous stay. The cottage was immaculate and equipped with everything one could need. Conveniently located, only about a quarter of a mile outside of the village of Dunkineely, it is easy to get to and close to many of County Donegal’s attractions. The furnishings are comfortable and the perfect amount to make for an enjoyable stay. The environment is quiet and peaceful. There is a wonderful area in the rear where one can sit and enjoy the tranquility of rural Donegal. The wi-fi was very responsive and adequate to satisfy my need. The Wild Rose Cottage is the perfect place to spend time while touring the beautiful and rugged County Donegal countryside. It is perfect for families with children. I highly recommend this cottage.
