The cottage had everything we needed, it was beautiful and well kept. Although it was cold at times we had radiators and fires. Creevy is a beautiful area with a lovely pier, rock pools and cliff top walks. Brilliant for swimming/ other water sports however we suggest bringing/ hiring wetsuits. It's a 20 minute bike ride to Rossnowlagh beach which can be rented at a reasonable price. There are pubs nearby such as the Creevy Inn and Gaslight Inn etc. We'd advise hiring a car or bikes in order to truly experience the area. This is a perfect getaway for a couple. Anthony and Olive are very helpful and always there however not overbearing. Even baking us bread and assisting with fire lighting. They were also willing to help with transport on the way there and back.

Lovely cottage well located to explore Donegal. We stayed one week and the accommodation was superb with a very comfortable bed. Anthony and Olive have been great hosts and provided a very warm welcome with complimentary bread, milk and eggs. We found the fire lit which was very welcoming. The house & kitchen are well equipped with everything you might need. Definitely a great experience.

I am a retired accountant and my wife Olive is a retired Psychologist.We have 4 adult children and 3 grandchildren. We are experienced independent travellers and like to get off the beaten track. Since our first extended trip of three months through Eastern Europe and Turkey in a camper van with 2 children in 1985 we have traveled in China,Mexico,Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Our last trips have been to India where for the last three years we spend two months each year assisting a local Indian NGO, Samuha. Profits from your stay in our cottage will go directly to Samuha-Samarthya (see the "Samuhaireland" page on WordPress).

I am interested in all music and have been involved with the annual Ballyshannon Traditional and Folk Music Festival for many years.
We are interested in nature conservation and have an organic vegetable garden and a wildflower garden at the cottage.
