What they say


Beautiful house with all mod cons. Very spacious bedrooms and downstairs wet room. More than adequate parking for the three cars we had with us. The only downside was that the google map showing it's location is inaccurate. We were looking for a property closer to the centre of Buncrana and this property is approximately a mile and a half away; though this isn't a problem if you have your own transport.
