Why Elma Gallagher chose County Donegal
One of our many reviews on Trip Advisor.......... Spectacular setting, perfect accommodation, excellent hosts... Left on May 8, 2018 for a stay in May 2018 Donegal is an amazing part of the world - spectacular scenery, beautiful unspoilt empty beaches, mountains, golf courses, and wonderful friendly people. Carrickfinn is the world's most scenic airport, surrounded by the Wild Atlantic and on the Wild Atlantic Way and has the unique backdrop of the Derryveagh Mountains, dominated by the iconic Mount Errigal, Donegal's highest peak. Donegal is a 'must visit' and was voted the 'Coolest place on earth' - National Geographic 2017. Close by the airport (1 km if that) are the holiday cottages owned and run by Elma and Cathal, wonderful hosts. The accommodation is modern and exudes old world cottage charm without compromising on comfort or cosiness - a perfect retreat and base to see and do all that the local county has to offer. On arrival we were made very, very welcome, offered tea and shown to the cottages nearby. Cathal thoroughly briefed us on how to use the heating, TV, the turf fire and the sauna (yes... the sauna!) and was very helpful and reminded us several times that if we needed any help with any aspect of our holiday or stay to be sure to phone either him or Elma and they would be delighted to help us out. Nothing was a problem and our late arrival and flexible departure time enhanced our relaxed experience. The cottage is very clean and comfortable. The turf, which is provided, gives a lovely, charming fire and the sauna is a great addition to unwind after a days climbing or golfing or whatever takes your fancy. The remote location is so restful, peaceful, quiet and calming that after a few hours you leave your cares behind you and immerse yourself in the locale. That said the world is on your door step literally with the airport nearby!!

Fantastic. Such a cosy and well equipped house.
We stayed with our three young children. What a great time we all had.
The house is very well presented, homely and cosy. We loved the fire at night.
The local area is beautiful, with great beaches.
The reservation process, checking in etc was very easy and we received very clear directions to the property. The property owners were very friendly and helpful.
We definitely will return.
