Central to many tourist places of interest. The weather did not cooperate, but, just whets our appetite to return when the weather is better.

Comfortable, well equipped, excellent base for exploring

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Castlerock, a sleepy seaside town. The house is very close to a long sandy beach, a bakery and a shop. There are walks along the beach and walks along the cliff, I loved seeing the sun setting over Mussenden Temple and Donegal.

The house itself has everything you need. It is much more spacious than I thought it would be and clearly much more than just a holiday rental for the owners. The house is comfortable and practical, it felt like a home rather than a holiday rental. We would definitively recommend it! Thank you Robert!

Fantastic house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday here. Great house with excellent furnishings and all necessary household equipment. Garden was lovely and secure for our children. The location is superb - 30 seconds from beach and a very well stocked local shop a few minutes walk up the road. Would highly recommend.

Mullaghard is very comfortable, well furnished and sits in a beautiful village near the sea.

  • 5 of 5

I know of nothing I have wished to be different. It is comfortable, clean and perfect for me. It is near public transportation. Castlerock is a quiet village with very friendly people. It suits my needs perfectly. I have spent a number of weeks here since 2014. I consider it my second home. The owners and the onsite caretaker have been very easy to work with and very accommodating from my first stay until now. I couldn't ask for better.
