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 Dunkineely
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 .

We had a great time! The house was spotless - we even had groceries to get us started. The beds were the best, fresh, very comfortable. Very quiet area, not far from town.
Would definitely stay again. Thank you for a lovely experience!
Such a lovely Irish cottage!
I cannot say enough nice things to say about our stay at the Wild Rose cottage! Willie and Jennifer have a well-appointed cottage with everything you would need for a fantastic stay. Any information you would need about the local area is provided in two binders and information about the cottage in another. Willie met us when we arrived which was about 10 pm due to flight issue. The cottage was toasty warm when we arrived and very welcoming. Willie explained all about the amenities in cottage and then spent time speaking with my husband about some of the local history. The cottage was spotless, the bed was very comfortable and warm. The next morning it was so nice to be able to have a hot cup of coffee and toast and jam that had been provided for us. The Donegal area is very beautiful and an adventure to explore. I would highly recommend the Wild Rose to anyone as you would hard-pressed to find another place in the area with the convenience, hospitality or comfort of the cottage and the owners. We will be back to see all of the things we missed on this trip! Many thanks to Jennifer and Willie to allowing us to enjoy your cottage and hospitality.
