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

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.

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 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 .

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.

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.

Lovely and confortable cottage in a great area

We've spent a very lovely week in Wild Rose Cottage where we were warmly welcomed by Willie. He explained and showed us everything about the cottage (everything is exactly as mentioned in the booking advice) and gave us a lot of tips to visit the surroundings. There is a basket in the house with many useful informations about what to do in Donegal and also two leaflets with a lot of informations too (i.e.: how to work the house electric devices, GPS informations about the place to see...).
If some of the places recommended by Willie were on our list, we would have missed several great places without his help: Saint John's Point on a sunny afternoon end or a windy evening (great waves breaking on the rocks!), Port deserted village so peaceful, Maghera beach and caves with its lovely white sand dunes! Thank you for all of that, Willie.
On our arrival, there even was a present for our daughter's birthday, a very kind attention: thank you again for that, Willie and Jennifer!
We found everything we needed in the cottage to cook delicious traditional breakfasts and evening meals? The beds are really confortable. The living room is great to relax, a lot of space for 3 persons as we were, Wifi was welcomed by our daughter... and my husband!
It was a bit cold in the evening to enjoy the garden's table and chairs but we enjoyed the wam atmosphere of the cottage instead and that was perfect. The garden though is really relaxing and quiet, the 3 bunnies in the grass won't say the opposite.
A real home away from home with a lovely decoration, very cosy and warm.
It was a pleasure to stay in your cottage and we wish to visit you again, Willie and Jennifer. We highly recommend your beautiful cottage to everyone.
Best wishes to you

Comfortable - Relaxing - Peaceful - Convenient

Wild Rose Cottage is comfortably furnished, well appointed, peacefully situated, and convenient to all of the wonderful scenery and sites of County Donegal. The owners, Willie and Jennifer, have done an excellent job decorating and furnishing this cottage with all that is needed to ensure a relaxing stay. The beds are very comfortable. The TV works well and the addition of WiFi makes staying in touch with friends and loved ones at home quite easy. They live nearby and are available to assist with suggestions on places to visit, but in no way are they intrusive. The cottage is located a short walk from the village of Dunkineely which has four pubs, two butcher shops, a florist, a convenience store, and a very good small cafe. Just off of the N56 it is conveniently located for easy travels to all parts of County Donegal and Northern Ireland. We stayed two weeks and it was a wonderful and memorable experience. The cottage is everything as advertised and more. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation in Ireland's most beautiful and rugged area, the Wild Rose Cottage is the one for you.

It's a very nice property. It is at a good location, with a nice view. It was clean and contained all we needed for a holiday(and even more). We would certainley recomend it to our family and friends. We felt very welcome by the Mackey family. We had very good contact by email and on our way there by phone. They made us feel like family and feel like home. There even was a basket full of information for things to do in Donegal. We visit Ireland for many years know so we now our way by now. We sertainly planning to come back here.
Owner's Response: Thank you Diny, it was a pleasure to have you stay at our Cottage, so glad you felt welcome. We are delighted you enjoyed Donegal and we look forward to seeing you all again.

Best Wishes

Willie & Jennifer
