Customer Testimonials for Lismore Cottage

Back to property details

Thank you Google for finding us this house.  It’s absolutely perfect –everything is here that we could possibly need. The views are unbelievably beautiful of the sea and the mountains - we would love to take them back to Manchester with us! The house is so clean and well maintained – it’s ideal for us as a family – however would be great for a couple/family who are perhaps bringing their elderly family members, as the ensuite bathroom on the ground floor would be perfect!  Or another ideal would be for a couple of families – as there is so much space (and various beds!) – you certainly wouldn’t feel like you’re crammed in! It’s huge! it’s not the last time we will be here. We will be back!”

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Lismore cottage. The cottage is very well equipped, the kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook your own meals. The rooms are up to modern standards and have an indívidual touch. The location is ideal, especially when you want to tour the area around Donegal Town and Slieve League. Even though the weather was changeable, we had a wonderful holiday.

Lismore Cottage was a fantastic place to stay in winter - it was cosy and warm even though the temps were -15c outside.  We had the sun all day into the family rooms and it was lovely sitting looking over the bay enjoying the view and the warmth!  We'll definitely be staying again.

We had a most wonderful stay at Lismore Cottage and loved Donegal and Donegal Town so much.  Your cottage was meticulously tidy and the kitchen was wonderful with every appliance and gadget we could have wanted or needed. So nice when you are away from home.  Also loved the wonderful views around the cottage pertaining to Donegal Bay both up and downstairs -- the weather was beautiful the whole time we were there. Sun and mild temps. We found the Tourist Visitors' Center very friendly and helpful and they referred us to James McGroary, Taxi driver who took us up the coast to Killybegs, Kilcar, Ardara, etc.  He was exceptional and took us on some less travelled roads along the coast that were breathtaking and fulfilled our every wish.  Highly recommend his service and safe driving technique. Ate at the Blueberry Cafe, very good, The Harbor Restaurant, excellent, Smugglers Creek Inn, good, but a little disappointed in the food, view was awesome, The Castle Bar, very good, The Castle was very interesting -- we enjoyed.  Missed out on the Bay Boat tour as we didn't realize it only operated on certain days in off season and we waited too long. Loved the friendly people and shopping in Donegal Town. All in all, you certainly rated an A+ for a wonderful Holiday Rental in Ireland and you were fabulous to work with during the course of planning our trip. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. Hope to return!

 My friends and I rented Lismore Cottage for a weekend recently and we were delighted with the cottage.  It was a complete home from home, clean, modern, extremely welcoming and equipped with everything you could possibly need, especially for those with children.  Richard was lovely to deal with and we hope to be back soon.

We had a great stay in what is a lovely property that exceeded our expectations. It was a real pleasure to feel as if you were stepping into a home rather than a property available for rent. All we can say is thank you and to recommend Lismore Cottage to all our friends and anyone who reads these reviews.

A short review of our trip to Donegal. We arrived in Donegal on the 5th of November and felt welcome in Lismore Cottage. A beautiful, spacious cottage with fantastic views of the Bay. And with all the equipment you need. Great beds also. And only 15 minutes walk to the town centre. In Donegal, we had a superb dinner at the Italian restaurant La Bella Donna twice! The Harbour restaurant was also ok. We went to Slieve League. Majestic cliffs (the best of Ireland) and a great walk!! We visited The beach at Rossnowlagh and the award winning Pub Smugglers Creek on the cliffs overlooking the coast. Great! We also drove to The Rosses, amazing sea views. And everywhere we came in county Donegal, we smelt peat. Ireland on its best. And of course: we had some pints of Guinness, a few whisky’s and a lot of fun in the pubs. With music of the Pogues and Goats don’t shave J. A great trip!

Fantastic! Very child friendly! Kids loved it and so did we. We could not fault Lismore Cottage one bit. It had everything we were looking for, very clean and extremely comfortable with great views. Both families really enjoyed our stay in Donegal and when we travel to Ireland again with no hesitation would stay in Lismore Cottage. The kids loved their room and the toys were brilliant and kept them amused! The cot and high chair were great too as not many places had these. Donegal Town was lovely, great restaurants and great base for exploring Donegal. We moved on to another part of Ireland for the 2nd week of our holiday and wished we had stayed at Lismore Cottage!!! Thank you!!

I just wanted to say we had the best holiday yet in Donegal this year, because the house was totally perfect. Firstly it was lovely and warm and clean yet it was very spacious so we weren't falling over ourselves. There was plenty of room if you needed space and yet also the kitchen/dining/sunroom area was perfect for the family to get together. Also it wasn't your run of the mill holiday home as you had a fully equipped kitchen, so much that we were able to manage a dinner party, which I can tell you is no easy feat in some holiday homes. The beds were lovely and comfortable and overall, I couldn't fault the house at all. My mum and dad both had a great time and both thought the house was fantastic. We will definitely come back to this house not only because it was such a great house (the best we have ever had) but also because it was really central. We could go in any direction (and frequently did!) and yet it was so near the town too. So all in all a big thumbs up from us for the cottage. Thank you so much for your hospitality, and for being so helpful with our requests. By far, the house made it for us, the best holiday we have had in a long time!

Lismore Cottage in Donegal is perfectly located just out of the town centre of Donegal Town overlooking a beautiful bay. Perfect for anyone really, as it is a simple 10 minute walk to the centre of town, if you want the village hustle and bustle, and when you have had enough you can just snip back to your quiet and modernly furnished niche, or continue to explore the countryside from there. I was in Donegal (with family from Overseas) for a Wedding at a nearby hotel and it was a great base to just relax 3 days before the wedding and 3 days after the wedding. Great place, and I will try and make it back.

We had a brilliant time during our week in Donegal. The house itself was absolutely beautiful and the views over the bay were spectacular. The cottage had everything we could possibly need and more thanks to Richard and his thorough organisation. I would highly recommend Lismore Cottage to anyone holidaying in Donegal.

Just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed our holiday in your lovely cottage. It was a pleasure to wake up to such wonderful views even if it was raining!! Fortunately it only rained either before we went out in the morning or after we came back at the end of the day but not every day, in fact the weather was quite good. My 13 month old grandson played with the toys, which were very welcome as my daughter could only pack a few. We visited Rossnowlagh beach, saw some of an Irish Folk Festival, had a trip on the Waterbus, went to Slieve League and Bunglas, and Donegal Castle as well as a few other places. We all enjoyed the wedding we came over for at Harvey’s Point Hotel, what a stunning setting. Thank you for use of your cottage.

We spent a wonderful week in Lismore Cottage and the house is really great. It has all the comfort needed for self-catering accommodation; even some books are available, although we brought ours with us. There's everything as told on the web page and is ready also for small children - even some toys are there. Colours of rooms are really nice. The view from the house is something to mention and the photographs can not express the real feeling when you stand in the house, looking through the window at the Donegal bay. The owner is very kind and helpful with the information about County Donegal, the places to visit and activities to attend. County Donegal is really a place to visit and to spend some time there. People are really friendly and helpful. Mostly it is not crowded with tourists; of course we could not explore everything we wanted. There are some places to see and visit while there: Lough Eske near the town of Donegal, the cliffs of Slieve League, Glenveagh National Park with the Glenveagh castle, the Murvagh Beach and of course lovely Donegal pubs with Irish traditional music and even lovely girls dancing "Riverdance". Northern Ireland is near and is worth while go there to visit The Walled City Derry/Londonderry with the walls and murals. The shopping is great there and due to euro/sterling exchange rate more attractive. We enjoyed our holiday in Donegal and recommend the Lismore Cottage to everyone who likes the self-catering accommodation, it was one of the best we have rented across Europe.

We found that Lismore Cottage was the best holiday cottage we’ve experienced, a spacious, well-designed and superbly equipped place to relax all day, with beautiful long sea and countryside views in all directions…and a pleasant short walk to the town of Donegal. It is also ideally located to explore the counties of Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim, Fermanagh, Tyrone and Derry. We loved Lismore Cottage so much, we will definitely return the next time we want to stay in southern Donegal.

We had a really great time at the cottage which had fantastic facilities and a real homely feel. The weather was really nice in the evening so we were able to enjoy the excellent views of the bay. The only problem was that we couldn't stay for longer. Thanks very much again for making our stay so enjoyable. The next time we come to Donegal town we will certainly be in touch.

We spent a very relaxing weekend in Lismore cottage recently. The well maintained cottage is ideally situated within strolling distance of the town yet enjoying spectacular scenery overlooking the bay. The house is fully equipped down to the smallest detail with everything one could need. The unexpected extras, mobile phone and charger, books, cds etc, were a pleasant surprise. The next time we are in the region we will definitely try to stay here as we couldn't ask for any more from a holiday home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lismore Cottage and would love to go back there for another holiday. The cottage is in a beautiful elevated position down a quiet road near the town and it has the most beautiful views of Donegal Bay. The house is clean, light, modern, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. In particular, we loved the conservatory, dining area (both with wonderful views) and the kitchen. The beds are really comfortable, the showers very good and it was very quiet at night. In fact, we found the house perfect for our needs.

Our host, Richard, was very efficient when making the booking and arrangements, returned emails very quickly and was very friendly and approachable. He had also left us details of local restaurants, tourist info. etc., which all made us feel very welcome and at home! I would have no hesitation in recommending this house for a self catering stay in a lovely corner of Donegal.

We enjoyed our stay in Ireland immensely! We hope to return and would certainly want to stay in Lismore cottage. The view from the cottage windows was beautiful. The location was convenient to all the sites we hoped to visit. We enjoyed walking to town. The cottage is immaculately kept and the owner could not have been more helpful. Donegal county was beautiful! Our only complaint is that our stay was too short!
