  • A Spectacular Week

    "We had a spectacular week with two other couples at the Hilltown. This was our second trip to Ireland and we fell in love with the Donegal region. This Hilltown is located a few miles from the beautiful village of Donegal, which was hosting a food festival the weekend we arrived. There are numerous day trip opportunities to include trips into Northern Ireland. The house has lots of room, and was recently updated which makes it a very comfortable home with lots of gorgeous views of the countryside. We took daily walks through the country and over to the beach and played the Donegal Country Club one day, which is the second longest links course in Europe. We would highly recommend this part of Ireland and the Hilltown to anyone looking for a special time in Ireland."

  • Beyond our expectations

    "It was the first visit to Ireland for my partner and my first as a tourist (not family). We could not have been happier with our choice of Old Parochial House for location, great accommodation, and most of all Alyson and Sean our wonderful hosts. They took the time to make us feel welcome and at home and we enjoyed several chats with advice on places to visit and history of Ireland. Our balcony looked out over the fields of a neighboring farm, which thrilled David who had grown up on a farm here in Canada, and every evening we were able to enjoy a glass of wine and bathe in the peace and tranquility before dinner. Thank you both for making our week in Co. Clare a memory to treasure. We would both highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to spend some time on the west coast and enjoys country living. We found it easy to make day trips to Connemara, Dingle, Cork, Limerick, Ennis, Burren etc. The quiet really was deafening!"
