A complete joy
Of all the holiday homes I have rented, this is my favorite. It is beautiful, it is comfortable and cosy, and it is maintained with both love and precision. You have everything you need right at hand (and, unlike so many holiday rentals, everything works). The little stove in the living room took the chill off - and with addition of a cup of tea or a glass of wine, it made the end of every one of our days in Dunfanaghy perfect.
Dunfanaghy, by the way, is a lovely village. There are several good restaurants and several cosy places for a scone and a cup of tea. The Centra is just a small market, but it had everything we needed. The cottage is close enough to the village that you can easily walk and it is a very quick drive. There are also a number of things to do that are not far away.
Best of all, the view from the front door on a sunny morning will start your day with unadulturated joy.
Sauber, gemütlich, super Lage
Wir würden jederzeit wieder hier wohnen wollen. Es hat alles gepasst: Die Räumlichkeiten, der Garten, die Umgebung. Wir hatten herrliche Ruhe - und konnten trotzdem zu Fuß schnell mitten im Ort sein. Alles optimal.
