Great location with great views

So many amazing sights close by to explore
A cosy and clean cottage with. Beautiful views. The beaches nearby are some of the best we have ever been to. We had kids ranging from a 6-month-old to an 11-year-old and they all had a brilliant time (once the 11-year-old got over the lack of internet and phone coverage). So many amazing sights close by to explore. We had a wonderful holiday – thank you to Joe and Susanne, we hope to return soon.

The solitude and beauty have been very helpful
Thanks, Joe and Susanne for providing a real!y restful and peaceful accommodation for my week in Fanad. Post-bereavement it was exactly what I needed. The solitude and beauty have been very helpful. My brother loved Fanad deeply and it was comfortable to be there. As always, the cottage doesn’t disappoint and I enjoyed the quirky mixture of summer and autumnal gales from the comfortable clean and cosy spot you provide. Looking forward to coming again.

It was so cosy which was great for a January weekend
This is a beautiful cottage with everything you need. It is modern but still with the feel of a cottage. It was so cosy which was great for a January weekend. The house was very clean and Susanne the caretaker was very helpful. The area is stunning and the people are the friendliest we have met. The local bar, The Lighthouse Tavern, is just a ten-minute walk away. The food and the coffee there is amazing.
