"For my 1st trip to Ireland I chose to visit the Hilltown...no better place to begin! William McKinley is my great uncle and emigrated to the US with his brother, my grandfather. I saw the remains of the house where they were born and explored the graveyard looking for family stones. The Hilltown is now owned by my cousins.
Four college friends joined me in a wonderful week of exploring County Donegal and the Wild Atlantic Way. The house is just as pictured, extremely well-equipped, very comfortable, and in a beautiful setting. The house is very well maintained and the caretaker is readily available to answer any questions.
We spent out days driving around the countryside enjoying vistas and the herds of sheep, cows, and horses. Lots of information was provided for these side trips as well as shops, restaurants, pubs, and local attractions which we visited.
We had a ball! A resident pheasant was our alarm clock and we delighted in the parade of cows morning and night (we even went down to watch the milking). One evening we climbed over the fence and up to the top of the hill to view the Blue Stack Mountains and beach in the 10 pm twilight. Beautiful sight. Weather was typical but did not dampen our spirits a bit! We are already planning a return visit."
