Vacation of a Lifetime
My sister, brother, sister in law & I went on our once in a lifetime vacation to Ireland. We were incredibly forturnate to find the Donegal Thatched Cottages on Cruit Island. What a fantastic setting! The cottage itself was roomy and had everything we needed. It was decorated very nicely but it felt very homey and comfy. While we were unable to get a seaview cottage, we could hear the ocean and could see the ocean after walking only a few steps. The views were absolutely breathtaking! Every [read more]
Fantastic Romantic Getaway
Myself and my girlfriend stayed for a long weekend in the beautiful Donegal Thatched Cottages this summer. We stayed in one of the cottages that is set right over the ocean. What a view! Conor was really helpful with his knowledge of the local area and we found the many walks all over Cruit was the highlight of our stay.There are so many all with spectacular sights to see. Paying for the turf was a great idea as we loved sitting round the open turf fire on the rocking chairs, toasting marshmallo [read more]
Most Beautiful Place on Earth !
I've been to these thatched cottages many times and can't recommend them highly enough. Cruit Island is absolutely stunning, and the cottages couldn't be better located- perched on a height overlooking the pounding Atlantic and a perfect sandy beach, its a true retreat from the world. The cliff walks around the island are wonderful, and on the beaches you can collect all kinds of shellfish and wild samphire. Sometimes I go there to have a really quiet time, but often in the summer the whole fami [read more]
Wonderful Family Stay
Our family (2 parents, 2 grandparents, a 3.5 year old and an 8 month old) had a lovely 5 day stay. The location on Cruit Island is magical: the beaches are beautiful, the rocks are good for adventures and there are lots of trails to explore. It is great for families looking to spend quality time together in a secluded area. Provisions and restaurants are within a 15 minute drive in either direction off the island (hours limited during the off season). Day trips to the surrounding area are easily [read more]
A wonderful Place of Peace
We stayed the first time in Ireland and it was great. A friend of us recommended us the "Donegal Thatched Cottages", he stayed there every year, since he was a child. We enjoyed our holiday very much. Conor Ward and his wife are very friendly and they were very helpful all the time. The cottages are tastefully furnished and with a lot of atmosphere- you can feel "the spirit of Ireland". We loved the great fire place and the turf fire, the beds are all decorated with nice quilts. The beach is fi [read more]
The Most Perfect Holiday Location ever
We chose one of these cottages to hopefully combine a getaway from it all holiday with some shore fishing. It was a complete success! The cottages are lovely and the location is superb! The fishing was even better than we had dared hope - standing on the pier next to the club house of Cruit Island Golf Club hauling out over 100 fish in 4 days is a memory that will always be with us. Tne surrounding countryside is magnificent and you can get anything you need in Dungloe which is only 15 mins away [read more]
Très bon accueil du propriétaire dans cet environnement pur et très très sauvage, venant de Toulouse nous avons adoré ! le cottage est rustique à l'intérieur donne la sensation de vivre tel un pêcheur mais quel charme ! Calfeutré au coin d'un petit feu de tourbe nous apprécions après une journée au grand air. Le vent y souffle beaucoup mais le soleil réchauffe assez pour apprécier des pique-niques en plein mois d'août juste en contre bas du cottage. Un petit phoque a pointé le bo [read more]
A Perfect Honeymoon in a Magical Place
We got very excited about Donegal Thatched Cottages just from the photos on the website and the reality was beyond our very high hopes. All the positive descriptions in other reviews are true. So much in such a small and easy to walk or drive around area - the beautiful Atlantic at your door, Arranmore Island on one side, a mesmerising mountain panorama on the other including the extraordinary Errigal mountain with it's pale grey top usually in a cloud looking like something magical from Lord of [read more]
Donegal Thatched Cottages
We stayed here from May 30 through June 3. It is difficult to chose a favorite place in Ireland because there are so many. Donegal Thatched Cottages tops the list, however. The setting is fantastic, the accomodations perfect and the owner helpful, gracious and interesting. It is a perfect place to explore County Donegal. The nearby town of Dungloe was a delightful surprise filled with music and friendly people. Details are that the cottage was equipped with everything one could need, impeccably [read more]
A Healing Place
My husband and I spent 8 days in Donegal Thatched Cottages on Cruit Island - a healing place. The cottages overlook the Atlantic Ocean, you find several beautiful sandy beaches close to the houses -and we did actually swim every day-, you can do many different great walks around the island from the cottages, the sunset is great...... And from the house interesting sights are within reach - we spent a fine day in Glenveagh National Park and another in Donegal. Cruit Island and the thatched cottag [read more]
