Beautiful home in a beautiful place
Had such an amazing few days, luckily with some great weather. Me and my traveling companion, my dog, loved all the great walks and views right out the front door. I would definitely recommend Urris Hillside Cottage and will not hesitate to book it again.
Beautiful holiday home
If you want peace, fresh air and beautiful scenery in lovely Donegal this is the place to stay. A house which offers you comfort in both living and sleeping arrangements which is comparable to none. The kitchen and laundry room has all you need , utensils, detergents and all exceptionally clean. We had a great stay and hope to return at some stage. Highly recommend this beautiful holiday home and delighted with the memories.
Out of this world
Beautiful hidden gem, a real getaway from it all wonderful holiday home. It was very cosy and every need catered for, and carefully thought out. The views are awesome!!!
Will definitely be back
So happy you had a great time. Thanks for the kind words and see you soon, for the next visit.
The location of this cottage is stunning with panoramic views of the hills and countryside.
5 nights in this lovely well equipped cottage was not enough to see all we had planned. We were not disappointed though as the weather was very kind to us and we visited most of the beaches in the peninsula. Coming back each evening to this comfortable cottage was very pleasurable as we knew how cosy it was and if we ate in we had all the facilities to do so. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to come back soon and finish what we had planned.
We are so happy you enjoyed yourselfs and please come back any time. Thanks for the kind words.
