Cottage
Situated in North West Donegal our home is set in a superb location overlooking the bay and the islands, five minutes walk from Bunaninver harbour and a three minute drive to the nearest sandy beach. The beach provides ideal conditions (weather permitting!) for bathing, walking, and jogging with the invigorating sea air. A ten minute walk is Teac Jack's hotel, renowned for its traditional music and dance sessions and good 'pub grub'. A short drive away is Bunbeg, which boasts more beaches, golf, fishing, hill walking, restaurants and traditional pubs. This is in the heart of the Gaeltacht, the Irish speaking area. The Dunlewey visitor's centre and children's play park is also a short drive, or travel on to Glenveagh National park and take in its breathtaking scenery.

Such a deliberately spiteful attempt from the same family to provide a second review for the same booking, the content of which I refute but will not dignify with a tit for tat response.

Hi Joe, I am sorry there was a few minor issues when you arrived. Our housekeeper turned up to sort out within 10 minutes but you and your wife had already decided not to stay, I suspect before you even came in to the house....More
