We booked this property for a group of friends for the weekend and it was perfect. The house is fabulous and very spacious whilst being extremely comfortable. It is very well equipped and had everything we needed. We arranged for the chef to come in and cook for us for one of the nights which was great. He set up in the dining room and we had pre dinner drinks in the drawing room which was lovely. He also cleaned up after which was fab! The house was very clean and well cared for. It has some beautiful furniture and feels like a home rather than a rented house. It is in a rural location wh...more
Galley Head has been on my list of places to stay in for many years. My stay at Galley head was amazing. It measured up to the high expectations I had for the weekend. Firstly we were met by Gerald Butler, former LightKeeper at Galley Head and he was so helpful and shared a huge amount of information about the lighthouse and the building. Gerald was very generous with his time and set us up for a very relaxing stay at Galley Head. The LightKeep's house 2 that we stayed in was full of charm and had amazing views of the sea and lighthouse. Best of all you can lie in bed upstairs with shutters ...more
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this incredible residence -the feeling of being 'inside' the fort is quite special.
The setting was amazing with wonderful views outside the perimeter of the buildings. The property was very clean and the manager very helpful. Some aspects were disappointing such as damp stains on the walls in the double bedroom, peeling paint in the shower room and a damp smell on arrival. We have stayed in two other lighthouse cottages and did not experience this problem. There was no safety guard on the open fire.
All mod cons whilst maintaining the charm of the original house. The location is within easy commute to beautiful beaches and forest walks for those that like the outdoors.
We had a lovely 3 days in the railway cottage. It’s a great location to base your stay in Donegal from if you’re driving. Taxi into the town was between 6 and 8 euro and not hard to get. The facilities are basic in the cottage, we had trouble getting the temperature just right in the shower and you have to sit in the bath to use it. There is no tv or couch, just two armchairs, books and a radio but in the end it was a really enjoyable stay! The place was spotless and had a really old, quaint feel to it!
This was our second visit to Salterbridge Lodge ( the last time was in winter), this cosy, ‘ bijou’ house. The setting is very appealing, situated in a lush Blackwater valley, close to walks, Cappoquin, Lismore and Waterford gardens. The house is suited to holiday catering + the sittIngroom restful for reading etc.
SuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuperSuper. I really liked it.
We had a super weekend @ the Mews so quiet & location is fab. Leah was very accommodating . House is very comfortable & parking is a bonus. Would highly recommend
Very nice place, clean, tidy etc just like home, staff n house manage very helpful, one big problem is park, having to pay €20 per 24 hours n car park when one could park n a designated space in the fort like the staff do,,, all you need is one car space per house,, other than that a great stay, highly recommend it
This place is an absolute dream. Stunning building and location. We cooked dinners and breakfasts and relaxed by the fire and went on walks and swims. Really lovely.
Its a beautiful place to stay but it could do with a bit of modernisation, especially the kitchen. If a dishwasher was installed that would go along way, also the c.c.t.v needs attention.
We took a short break in the middle of the summer in order to escape from Dublin and found exactly what we were looking for! This property is set in a most remote, quiet area. We had very fine weather and I loved sitting in the quiet surrounds of the garden most of all. The children enjoyed the playing in the courtyard and the lane running up the back of the house, and we enjoyed exploring the area around an abandoned school house up past the fields. There were two easy day trips we thoroughly enjoyed: the first was Erica's Fairy Forest in Cootehill, along with the surrounding walks. T...more
Beautiful cozy little gothic lodge surrounded by beautiful walks and near the beautiful Castledown house. Nice library of books for cozy evenings in. We had a wonderful time.
The location of the Townhouse is excellent with amenities right on its doorstep. Great to experience an old house in the heart of the vibrant city.
The lack of tv and wifi made the stay all the more enjoyable and my love for reading and the wireless was rekindled. My only regret was not staying longer
very enjoyable stay but two nights was too short a visit. Termon house is a very relaxing house to return to, having explored nearby attractions such as Tory Island and Glenveagh national park. I will probably stay here again.
We couldn’t ask for a quainter or more accommodating place near such a lovely location as Castletown house. Highly recommend.
It was good fun staying in a quirky, historical house, which was set up with everything needed for guests. The children loved it, and enjoyed being able to walk to shops. The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was great having lovely parkland for walks on our doorstep, and the location was also convenient to go into Dublin for the day.
