“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I stayed at the Old Mill for three days with my husband, mother and aunt at the end of May. Donegal was our first stop in Ireland after arriving in Dublin. The house is located close to Donegal Town, but out in the country enough to give that perfect Ireland countryside feeling. We all enjoyed long walks from the house, which is located across from a beautiful castle, a nearby lake and lots of sheep. I enjoyed early morning runs from the house which were only interrupted by the occasional car and having to stop to look at the beautiful scenery. The house had everything we needed and was very clean. We were able to cook together, enjoy the fire, and spend time in this unique house that felt very quickly like home. The owner was extremely easy to communicate with and responsive. We all would have stayed longer and look forward to returning to the Old Mill someday.

“New Year at Lough Eske”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

A stunning cottage that has been beautifully restored and is in a peaceful and idyllic location. We loved relaxing in this very comfortable home in front of the wood burning stove and enjoying walks in the beautiful woods and surrounding area. Had everything we needed for a short break with family and friends to celebrate New Year. A great base for exploring the Donegal area. Would highly recommend it and would love to return again soon.

“Absolutely perfect Cottage and Location”
Reviewed 7 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed in the Old Mill on Halloween weekend with the kids and it is absolutely fantastic. Nestled in woodland, you get a real country feeling but it is also situated at the rear of the Solis Lough Eske hotel and 10 minutes away from Harvey's point so cocktails and great food are on your doorstep should you feel the need: we did. The House itself is a sympathetically restored old mill, and the owners have decorated and furnished with great taste throughout retaining originals features but also providing excellent facilities. There is enough room to house two families here and a great space to entertain in the living area. Outside the original water mill is still there adds great character. All in all, this is perfect and there is no better base for exploring Donegal and Sligo. Its now top of our list and we will be back.

“Wonderful, magical cottage in a wonderful location!”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Just spent a wonderful week at the Old Mill with my partner and our two boys (aged 9 and 14), enjoying all the amenities that Donegal and the surrounding area has to offer - great dining, fabulous beaches, surfing, etc. The house itself is absolutely delightful - a charmingly renovated old saw mill with all modern conveniences. One week simply wasn't enough!
