Donegal tops the list as the "Coolest place on the planet to visit 2017"
- National Geographic Magazine.

Our stone cottage is a restored farm building ( originally built 1852 ), a modern touch with tranquil decor. It's behind our home yet private, quiet
and tucked away in the countryside. The ancient Beltany Stone Circle and
historic Raphoe makes this the ideal hub from which to explore the magic of coolest Donegal.

That is lovely to hear Maureen, especially coming from a lady so finely tuned to the hospitality industry. Thank you we both appreciate your kind words. It was indeed a treat to have you stay and we both enjoyed the conversations...we need to explore more of these another time. Perhaps you will come back on that genealogy trail in Donegal.

We had a wonderful stay in the Cottage. Everything was perfect for us. We were very tired when we arrived and it was the perfect place to relax and recover. We hope to return for a week next time to explore more of County Donegal.

Mary’s cottage was the embodiment of all my daydreams of life in the Irish countryside. Mary’s welcome, complete with fresh baked bread, was so lovely, and we felt so at home in the cottage. We loved hearing about the grounds from Peter, strolling in the garden, playing with the …

Thank you so very much Maureen for those lovely words, I'm glad you had a relaxing time and that you enjoyed staying with us . It is not always easy with a toddler to have some down time, we are very happy that you were able to find that with us while in Ireland.....and that the our cat Stella and Oreo and Lily helped too.
