Customer Testimonials for Otway Beach Cottage

Back to property details

Another chance to appreciate this lovely cottage, with its spectacular views. Linda & Eamon are the perfect hosts. The addition of the dishwasher was most welcome as the children didn’t have to wash by hand after each meal. There was no complaining . Thank you for a lovely break.

The Wylie family, Belfast.

One week into our stay – DON’T WANT TO LEAVE. This place is just heaven and the house is perfect. We have not felt so relaxed since our first visit here in July ’06.

We tried horse riding yesterday – a real laugh. The four spoiled pooches are very, very happy.

Thank you Linda and the Gallagher clan.

The Canning family, Scotland.

This is such a beautiful place, the scenery and the peacefulness is wonderful. The cottage is so nice to live in, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We have had a lovely holiday so peaceful and quiet. Thank you so much Linda for a lovely clean house, spotless towels, tea towels. Unforgettable in this little haven of peace.

Thank you again.

We have had here a fantastic stay. Your cottage is nice and well equipped. The views is brilliant and the atmosphere relaxed. So what more do you want? The first week with splendid weather and great family-reunion of 20, between Holland and Ireland. We leave you now but hope to see you again.

We have had a fantastic week, the scenery is to die for – the secluded beach has been brilliant for our dogs and we all feel very rested and chilled out. The cottage has been very well equipped, plenty of room for us all. We could not of asked for a better location with idyllic views. Sad to go home but worth travelling from Kent.

Steve, Tina, Pauline, John & Dogs.

I had a great time, it must have been fun because the time passed so quickly, been here before and its just as good this time. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to go and play golf at the golf course. Views were fabulous and stunning at Fort Dunree. Thank you Linda for a tremendous and remarkable holiday at Otway Cottage.Sad to leave.

Sean, Aged 9.

I had a brilliant time here, I loved the beach. Everyday we would go down and build dams in the stream. Loved the house and the garden, thanks a lot Linda for this cottage. Sad to leave it, hope to come back again.

We’ve had a great holiday, we’ve really enjoyed the beautiful cottage and beach 2 minutes away. Its lovely and peaceful and good to eat breakfast overlooking the sea.

The cottage is very clean and has lots of space – better than we hoped for. Lots of good things to see, for example Glenveagh National Park, Fanad Lighthouse and Horn Head Cliffs. The people are very friendly and always willing to help.

We hope to come back again soon.

The Dury Family, Glasgow.

Thanks for a fantastic holiday in a very special place. The cottage is excellent the best we have stayed in in Ireland. We have all enjoyed the location and the boys have particularly enjoyed big wave beach (Ballymastocker and Portsalon). I have taken hundreds of photographs and as you know have done several paintings and drawings, I hope to do more when we get back to England so I will keep in touch.

We will be back as soon as we save up.

The Shiels family, Derbyshire.

We arrived at 11.00pm to find the beautiful cottage fully equipped and inviting as we settled down for the night. In the morning we saw the beautiful views for the first time and have enjoyed 3 glorious days exploring the Fanad and Inishowen Peninsulas as well as the magical beach below. Hope to come back again. Thank you.

The Jones family, Cambridge.

We have had a very relaxing two weeks even the mixed weather did not take from this wonderful place. Fantastic house and location and we will find it difficult to leave those fabulous sea views. Eoghan could not believe the golf course was so close. We will definitely be back.

Otway Cottage was the ideal location for us, we enjoyed the golf (tricky little course), the dog and I enjoyed walking on the beach and through the woods. The views from the cottage are stunning and the weather was great to add to the lovely four days we had here. The cottage itself was lovely, everything we needed was provided.

Thank you. We hope to come back next year again.

Annette & Pierce, Co. Cavan.

Superb location with lovely views. Golf was challenging but we found more balls than we lost. Good meals at Water’s Edge, Beachcomber, Rathmullan House and Fort Royal. Great drives to Malin Head, Fanad Head, Horn Head, Atlantic Drive and Bloody Foreland. Dogs had a wonderful time, especially on deserted beach.

Lovely and comfortable here in the cottage, especially as there were only two of us. First time here in 30 years, next visit will be sooner. Thanks Linda.

Donald, Ali & Dogs.

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow – that’s Otway Cottage. A beautiful cottage set amid some of the most spectacular scenery one could imagine. A haven for children who enjoy the beach and a golf course beyond par. For those who want a bit of excitement there is the lovely town of Letterkenny not too far away. This is the place for a truly relaxing holiday. We will be back. All the best for the future.

The Boyle Family, Glasgow.

Good Cottage, I really enjoyed going down to the beach everyday.

Thanks & Good Luck. Jack McInally.

Otway Cottage was exactly what we were looking for, for a perfect young family getaway. Beautiful setting and views, very friendly locals and couldn’t be closer to the beach without being a sand-castle. Portsalon beach is 15 minutes drive up the coast, outstanding beach with life-guards/blue flag. Huidies and Beachcomber pubs do good family friendly food for those days when you fancy someone else doing the cooking. We will most definitely be back, thank you for the memories.

The Plumb Family, Lisburn.

Beautiful Cottage, set amongst some of the most beautiful scenery we have seen. The drive northward from the cottage toward Portsalon is particularly impressive. The cottage itself is a pleasure to stay in, spotlessly clean and with every facility required for a relaxing family holiday. Many thanks to Linda and best wishes to all who stay here in the future.

The McCann Family, Armagh.

We’ve stayed in holiday houses in Cornwall, Cumbria, Scotland, Wales, France, Spain and all over Donegal – and this has been by far the best! We loved it and hope to return. Thank you Linda.

We loved Otway Cottage, everything we needed to make a great weekend was right here. My little brother was obsessed with collecting golf balls. Thank you! We will be back.

Thanks for a lovely holiday. The cottage is perfect! Beautifully clean, well equipped and ideally located. The “local” beaches behind the golf course are a well kept secret and we were frequently the only people there – luxury. We would love to come back and are even considering taking up golf to take advantage of the location. Also great walks for our two dogs and some good fishing too.

Anna & Jim, Scotland.
