Customer Testimonials for Falmore Cottage

Back to property details

We're sitting in the windowseat.   The bay is quiet after a windy and sunny week. What a wonderful time we had in your beautiful cottage.  We're struck by the beauty of the northwest, especially Tory Island, Glenveagh, Errigal, Cruit Island and the beaches!We wil be leaving tomorrow with pain in our hearts, and will return...

Some lovely hikes - Arranmore Island loop, Falmore Trail, Glenveagh National Park, onward to Inishowen, Slieve League, and Maghery beach.  Our favorite restaurant in town is the Stepping Stone. Evenings at the cottage have been relaxing and lovely, with beautiful late sunsets. - Shama and Andrew, CO/USA

Visited the Giants' Causeway, walked around the rocks to Maghery, climbed Mt Errigal, visited Carrickfin beach and Mullajerrick beach, had a thoroughly entertaining day out in Derry and walked to the Arranmore lighthouse.  Above all though, we ate and drank...soaking in the atmosphere of this incredible house.  What wonderful views and tremendously comfortable. We know we will be back! - John et al, Scotland

In the very first moment we could feel this house is a home with a soul. (It) has a special place in our heart.  (There were many) nice coastal walkings nearby and further away at Horn Head and Malin Head. Beautiful! The walk at Cruit Bay was wonderful! - Felix and Marin, Holland

This was our second time staying in Falmore Cottage…It’s even more relaxing and wonderful if you’ve been here before and (eagerly) long for a return, knowing what awaits you here.  Thank you for sharing this wonderful place. PS- We had a lot of fun feeding and patting Crackers (the neighborhood donkey)!

The weather has been very nice, but even the rain is beautiful. The hiking was exhilarating, as is the driving. The cottage is beautiful: elegant yet homey. Thanks so much for sharing.

Your cottage here is just lovely and the views so stunning. My two year old son had a delightful week and especially enjoyed meeting Crackers, the neighbor’s friendly donkey. Thank you so much!

The scenery, people, music and food are very special here in Donegal. Then there is Falmore…magical!

When I first came through the door of Falmore Cottage I said, “You do whatever you like, but I’ll stay here!” Loved it:  the landscape, the sea, the air, the sheep, the music and the people. I’ve been coming to Ireland for over 30 years and it’s so reassuring to see that some things never change. The kindness of the Irish will never vanish, of that I am sure. Thank you for letting us stay in (your) wonderful cottage. We’ll be back!

Six of us on an Ireland odyssey. For four of us our first time across the “pond”.  Falmore (is) truly the most beautiful of all of Donegal’s coast.

I cannot imagine not visiting again. Ireland is without doubt the most beautiful country on earth. Thank you for sharing your home…a deeply rewarding and enriching experience.  I will never forget it or Falmore.  Many thanks to John and Bella also.  Loved the craic (good time) in Bunbeg.  Thanks for the tip!

 Bella and John had the house spic and span for us, and were very friendly and helpful. We loved going southwards to the beaches and beautiful scenery near Portnoo, Narin and Rossbeg…We went to Letterkenny to the secondhand book and CD store and were welcomed with tea and some baked goods. Great people there.

Sitting at your table outside, with a Guinness, looking over the ocean and the hills on the other side in the sun (yes, we had sunshine as well!)...I feel like I am in heaven or at the end of the world...When we at the end of each day turned back to Falmore Cottage, we entered every time again our piece of paradise."

Four sisters and two babies came to bring our mother home to rest with her parents at St. Mary's, Kincasslagh. Your exquisite cottage made our stay here truly unforgettable; the people were warm and the peat fire brought memories of our mother and her people.

A special kind of paradise. The huge window is the most famous cinema in the world! We'll never forget Falmore. Many thanks for your hospitality in your wonderful house.

At first I thought the drive from Maghery was simply stunning. However, it was not until I opened the door to the cottage that I fully appreciated the term 'jaw-dropping'. Quite simply a perfect home in a superb location...A week of total rest and relaxation. Thank you for allowing us to share, albeit briefly, in your own little piece of paradise. It has been a complete pleasure and a privilege.

"Today we watched as a double rainbow 'disappeared' into the sea, a fitting finale to a marvellous holiday. Good weather and a friendly interest from everyone we met made the holiday perfect. As we sat enjoying our peat fire during the evening we really felt we were 'at home'". -
