  • Great Golf Getaway

    "I chose Donegal because we were going to be playing some courses (Rosapenna, Portsalon, and Ballyliffin) located in the NW part of Ireland. The owner is a member of the local course (known locally as Murvagh or The Donegal Golf Club), which, by the way, is about a 5 minute drive down one of the side roads from the house (you can actually see part of the course across the bay from the home). The home was perfect plus there's a local pub and restaurant 100 yards down the hill from your front door) so no driving is necessary!! If you need to go to a local gocery store there's a SuperValu (biggest grocery store chain in Ireland) approximately 10 minutes from your doorstep and has eveything you need. The owner was exceptionally helpful in providing local knowledge as he grew up in the area. The owners of the pub and your next door neighbors and were both extremely friendly but cognizant of respecting your privacy - beware, they have two very friendly labs, who will come over and demand to be petted before entering your house!! There's a nice patio area out front to enjoy the beautiful sunsets as they fall over the hillsides to the north and the bay itself is something of an estuary draining during the low tides but filling to the brim during high ones. The location is very quiet and offers you plenty of solitude if you just want to sit outside and read a book. If you want to go into town it's 10 minutes down the road so if you're planning to visit a pub in town a cab ride won't break the bank. Donegal Town is small so it's easy to park the car and canvass on foot. I would rate the home as very clean and comfortable albeit the main shower is the best to use (could use a bit more water pressure) but all in all the beds, living room, kitchen, laundry room, etc. were perfect and price is hard to beat! The listing is accurate, the owner should add some photos of the magnificent sunsets, the property was clean and well maintained, the owner was very helpful in answering all questions, and I would recommend this listing to a family, group of golfers, or a couple trying to get away from it all. Be sure to try the seafood platter with a pint of Guinness (or Smithwick's!) at the Salmon Inn Pub down the hill and tell Margaret hello from the Yank golfers!!"

    "The listing description hit it right on the head....panoramic ocean view! The home looks exactly as it does in the photos & is meticulously maintained. The owner, Dan, was extremely helpful from start to finish. I would NOT hesitate to rent again if I'm lucky enough to return some day. The Dingle area is rich in history, food, music & the people are so welcoming and comfortable!! There isn't a bad restaurant/bar in Dingle. Slainte!"

  • Lovely apartment

    "The apartment was spotless and very comfortable. Very close to public transportation and shopping. The owners went above and beyond to make sure our questions were answered and that all of our needs were met. It was such a great experience."

  • Just perfect to enjoy the Ring of Kerry!

    "House is much better than what it looks from the photos. Location is just perfect if you rather have spectacular views when you wake up in the morning than being at the heart of some town. Everything you can possibly need for an amazing Ring of Kerry experience is included in this house, including the owner's helpful and lovelyness, maps for treks, TV for a quiet evening and a warm comfortable bed to rest after hours of hiking. House is super warm and cosy. I just got back home but can't wait to go back there."
