About Jennifer and Willie Mackey

William & Jennifer have been married for 30 years, we have three grown up sons. We have lived in Donegal all our lives, indeed our families can be recorded back to 18th century in this region - I guess we are local! Willie took early retirement in 2010 having worked in Telecommunications and Jennifer is now a full time housewife having worked as a Child Support Worker. We now have a small working farm on which we breed Connemara ponies and some Aberdeen Angus cattle.

Jennifer and Willie Mackey purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jennifer and Willie Mackey chose County Donegal

In March of 2012 we acquired a little Cottage down the road from where we live. The Cottage was in good condition and so after only some minor alteration and redecoration “Wild Rose Cottage' came into being. It is a very cosy Cottage, clean warm and with everything necessary to make your holiday enjoyable. It stands on its own half acre site, peaceful and quite even though it is only a 5min walk into the local village of Dunkineely.

What makes this cottage unique

Wild Rose Cottage is a 100 year old traditional stone cottage which has been upgraded over the years to a comfortable / cosy home while still retaining some of its old style. Whether you wish you chill out in the garden with a glass of wine or relax in front of the open fire you will not be disappointed. There is a Satellite TV and a DVD player if you need it and also WiFi Internet to catch up with friends and family back home. The cottage is ideally located to access many of our beautiful beaches , breathtaking mountains and other scenic drives or if you prefer to browse in the many craft shops in the nearby towns and villages. We have many award winning Restaurants to choose from in the area as well as many traditional Irish Pubs where you can join the locals in a nights music and craic. For the sports enthusiast there is Golf, Fishing, Pony Riding, Scuba Diving and Mountain Walking just to mention a few .

the perfect holiday cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Wild Rose Cottage was the perfect spot to spend time while exploring County Donegal. We felt immediately at home. My husband and I were looking for a quiet spot, away from the hustle and bustle of city life and this was it! The beautiful rosebushes and black berry bushes added to the serenity of the cottage. We were close enough to walk into the town of Dunkineely. And it was a short drive to Donegal Town and Slieve League.
Jennifer and Willie were the perfect hosts. They answered all our questions and provided a basket full of information on the surrounding area. The wifi was a definite plus.
We have stayed in other holiday homes on past trips to Ireland but Wild Rose Cottage is our favorite! The cottage itself was absolutely charming and comfortable, exactly as stated. We will definitely recommend it to family and friends. The cottage made our trip to Donegal County memorable. We will be back!!

Perfect holiday getaway

  • 5 out of 5
In thirty years of self catering holidays, we have not stayed in such a well equipped cottage. Every small detail had been thought through to make a perfect holiday home.The owners, Willie and Jennifer, went out of their way to ensure our holiday was memorable. This area of Donegal is very beautiful and has lots to offer. Everyone we met was very friendly and went out of their way to help and advise.

Lovely place

  • 5 out of 5
Just wanted to say what a wonderful stay we have just had at the cottage. Willie & Jennifer couldn't do enough for us & were always on hand if we needed anything without being intrusive.
We had 2 babies & the place was great for babies/toddlers with lots of toys & a lovely secluded garden all in a tranquil countryside setting.
Can't recommend the cottage highly enough!!!

Wonderful Wild Rose Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
There is not one criticism of the cottage we can make. The location, the amenities of the cottage and especially the owners were perfect. It was especially helpful to have Jennifer and Willie so near at hand to solve any questions we had. We've had negative experiences about absentee owners and with indifferent caretakers and it's wonderful to have the owners on site or this case, one house away. Willie was very helpful with suggestions for sight-seeing and just talking to Jennifer would brighten any dull day.. This area around Co, Donegal is filled with history and natural beauty and we had an excellent time exploring both. After 3 weeks at the cottage though, I never did get used to seeing the fox by the fence!

The cottage was comfortable warm and cosy.

  • 4 out of 5
It felt secluded enough for a getaway, yet close to the village. It was clean, the owner was friendly and provided good service. I would reccomend this cottage to a friend.

Lovely welcoming property, ideally situated

  • 4 out of 5
This was an ideal place from which to explore the delights of SW Donegal and to which to return to after a day out and about. Clean, comfortable. A restored cottage that retains much of its original charm. Private setting, but not too isolated, within walking distance to small, friendly town.
