“Beautifully restored cottage in tranquil setting”
Reviewed 4 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

A peace-instilling spot: surrounded by woods, the sound of the mill stream, Lough Eske just a few minutes away on foot. The house is comfortable, artistically restored but easy to maintain and pet friendly. Just ten minutes from Donegal town, on the edge of the Bluestack mountains.

“Perfect - a real gem”
Reviewed 15 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The Old Sawmill is the perfect place to relax in the most stunning surrounds of Lough Eske. We spent an idyllic three day there with our dog and friends. The house was a really comfortable home from home with everything we needed. We hope to return! Thanks to Joe too for being so helpful with the arrangements.

“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.
