What they say

 Y have just spent a few days in your lovely cottage. it was peace and quiet personified. Our kids loved the wonderful beach and we spent many hours walking the hills around falcarragh and dunfanaghy. A quck pint in the Shamrock bar and home to dinner, and relaxing in front of the fire. Lovely cottage. Will recommend it to everyone.
