“Fantastic house, views and setting”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Myself and two good friends stayed at the house in January and it was cosy, homely and very well equiped. The house is architect designed, well furnished, with ample bathrooms and bedrooms. The views towards Lough Swilly and the Inishown peninsula are spectacular. We had snow and big blue skies during our stay, which made the views all the more dramatic. With a fab open fire and great central heating we were toasty after big walks on Portsalon beach. This property is excellent for a rural Donegal escape, quiet and tranquil, but also close to the amenities of Rathmullan.

“Great stay in beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Loved the location and the views over Lough Swilly but not walking distance to the pub,unfortunately! It helped greatly that we had the best weather of the whole summer, the locals told us. We had some issues at the beginning of our stay but these were very quickly and efficiently handled by the owner once he was contacted. Would love to return again someday.

“Away from the madding crowd”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Needing a quiet break from the stresses of modern day life, we chose Tulaigh Bui because of its seclusion and we were not disappointed.

The house is well-appointed and the views are stunning, though the trees have matured a bit since the build and so obscure a more panoramic vista. There is plenty of space in the house and it was obvious that the owners also use it as it had that familiar family feel about it.

The surrounding area is magnificent if you want to explore but if the sun shines and all you want to do is relax and look over the lough, then the small patio area is perfect. If the weather turns a bit cooler then the open fire (burning peat logs and drift wood from the nearby small beach) warms the heart and rests the mind.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay and would definitely return if further exploration of that part of Donegal is in our future plans.

“Wonderful, relaxing stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This place is really special. Amazing views, lovely quiet location. We wanted a relaxing break away from it all and Tulaigh Bui didn't disappoint. This is a great base for walking, cycling, swimming, sailing ... or just sitting and enjoying the view. Would love to return one day.

“Donegal gold”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

More like a family home than a holiday let. Fabulous views of Lough Swilly. Sun glinting off the water in the morning. Generous thoughtful hosts. Well equipped. Lots of dining opportunities in Rathmullan and around. A great find. We'll be back.
