I hesitated to write this review--not because anything went wrong during our stay, but because I don't want everyone to rush to book this house so that it will be available when we go again. But you really should rush to book this house.
For starters, Tania is a very responsive host, answering my questions on everything from tap water (you can drink it) to where to get a cab to take us to a pub for a local traditional Irish seisiun (the pub owner's son, of course). She advised me to order groceries ahead of time from the SuperValu in Killybegs and they were delivered just as we arrived. Supervalu also sells spirits, beer and wine FYI. That was a brilliant suggestion.
The house sleeps 10 in 6 bedrooms. We were only a family of 4 but we appreciated having so much space. Our son is a full time wheelchair user, and Tania put a ramp to the front door for us. He slept on the first floor (ground floor in Ireland) and there was a tub and a shower available in the full bath. My husband and I had an en suite on the same floor.
The pictures do not do this house and its location justice. The morning views of the Bay of Teelin were breathtaking, and my daughter was charmed by the sheep next door. It was an entirely peaceful place to spend a week.
The Rusty Mackerel pub is literally at the end of the driveway. The food is top shelf, and the people are wonderful. We were there in the winter, so I don't know if the pub gets noisy in the summer with its outdoor area, but there is a berm in between, so I would guess not. The Mackerel also has rooms in case there are more than 10 of you.
The cliffs of Slieve Liag are stunning, and are close by. We didn't hike this time but will do so next time. You can drive up to an outlook for a gorgeous view if you can't/don't want to hike.
One note of caution for Americans--be sure to bring STEP DOWN electrical adapters. I bought the cheap ones and burned out a nursery monitor and a hair straightener due to a power surge, I guess. Don't make that mistake!
