We were really impressed with the well equipped and spacious kitchen
Have just spent the May bank holiday at Bunagee Cottage. There were 10 of us in total, ages ranging from 21 months to 79 years. We were really impressed with the well equipped and spacious kitchen. The kitchen table was large enough to accommodate us all at mealtimes which were a very important aspect of our weekend away. As the weather was inclement at times the children could colour in… Read more “We were really impressed with the well equipped and spacious kitchen”
Bright & clean with lovely enclosed garden at the back
Bright & clean with lovely enclosed garden at the back…had everything we needed in it. Ideal location to discover the magnificent Innishowen Peninsula. Culdaff village is very friendly and McGrorys pub had Irish music a couple of nights a week & lovely food in both bar & restaurant. Would recommend the house & area :-)
We had a first class stay at this property, it had everything we needed
We had a first class stay at Bunagee Cottage Culdaff, it had everything we needed. It was immaculately clean, and it was within walking distance of everything we needed, shop, bar and restaurant 5 mins walk and beach 15-20 min walk. The owner provided great customer service and a local lady looks after the property and she is contactable if you need anything. There are two things I think which… Read more “We had a first class stay at this property, it had everything we needed”
Your holiday home was great and the weather exceeded all expectations
Your holiday home was great and the weather exceeded all expectations. Accommodation for our 2 families (9 in total) was ideal – very comfortable. Secure rear garden was good and location worked out very well. Culdaff beach is beautiful and great for body-boarding etc. Thank-you for all your help – would certainly recommend / revisit.
The house is without doubt the best equipped house we have had the pleasure of staying at
We were very impressed with our stay at Bunagee. Everything was very easy from start to finish. The website was incredibly useful and the owner very helpful. It was a perfect home from home for us. My son was only 2 weeks old but we had a stress-free time due to the cottage being so well equipped.
When returning from a holiday I always ask myself the question ‘Would I return to the same place again’?
We were very happy with all aspects of our stay at Bunagee Cottage
We were very happy with all aspects of our stay at Bunagee Cottage. The owner was very helpful as was the lady who looks after the cottage. It was very clean and well equipped. Decent kitchen knives for a change in a holiday home! The house was big enough to accommodate two couples, two teenagers (who could have a room each) and two younger children in the bunk-bed room so… Read more “We were very happy with all aspects of our stay at Bunagee Cottage”
The house was fab, brilliant beaches, lovely people and nice food
Thank you so much for a really nice welcome, it was much appreciated. We had a great holiday. The house was fab, brilliant beaches, lovely people and nice food. And the week-long game of monopoly was very competitive!! Thanks from the kids for the toy box.
It’s a 2 min walk to the town and another short walk to the beach
House was perfect for us. 2 families with 4 kids. It’s a 2 min walk to the town and another short walk to the beach. House was very well presented on arrival and had everything we needed. Nice rear garden well secured for the kids and a nice quiet cul-de-sac so no passing traffic. Couldn’t ask for more! Thanks Sharon!
This is a very comfortable home in a beautiful location
The home was just as described, and it was well maintained. This is a very comfortable home in a beautiful location. My family really enjoyed their stay, and we have every intention of returning for another holiday.
A very comfortable home from home
Bunagee cottage is in a great location with local shops and pubs right on your doorstep. We stayed over the New Year period in a group of eight adults and we all found the house to be very comfortable and could not find any fault whatsoever. Everything has been well thought out to ensure guests have everything they need. The open fire which was already set was very welcome and… Read more “A very comfortable home from home”

The house is spacious, well maintained
Our extended family has stayed in a variety of properties around Culdaff for many years, and this was by far the best. Cara Bay is nicely situated between our favourite spots of Bunagee Harbour and the village and beaches of Culdaff. The house is spacious, well maintained and very tastefully decorated with everything in good working order and a very well-equipped kitchen. It was also spotlessly clean when we arrived.… Read more “The house is spacious, well maintained”
We even got to see some dolphins!
We really enjoyed our stay in Bunagee Cottage! Perfect location in beautiful surroundings, the beach is amazing!!!! We even got to see some dolphins! The house has all the comforts of home and plenty of space for two families, in a lovely quiet area. I would definitely recommend to anybody and will be booking again in the future. Many thanks Glenn and Sharon!
This is by far the best. It’s well equipped and well looked after
We have stayed in quite a number of houses in Culdaff over the years. This is by far the best. It’s well equipped and well looked after. We would definitely recommend it. The listing description is very comprehensive.
It can accommodate a large family comfortably
This is a great property that is well equipped & in a good location to discover Donegal. This is the second year that we have stayed at the house & I would not hesitate to recommend it to family or friends. It can accommodate a large family comfortably & the house is very clean. The beds are great too. The beach/shops/pubs are all a short walk/drive away depending on how… Read more “It can accommodate a large family comfortably”
when you get inside the property it is like stepping into the Tardis!
As you drive up to the property it looks every bit as good and you’d imagined from the descriptions given by the owners. But when you get inside the property it is like stepping into the Tardis! We were a party of 8 adults, 2 children and one infant. Not once did we trip over each other. Yes, we were helped by the glorious weather during the first week of… Read more “when you get inside the property it is like stepping into the Tardis!”
Fantastic location, within walking distance to the village and beach
Fantastic location, within walking distance to the village and beach. The house was incredibly well equipped, particularly the kitchen- we even managed to bake a birthday cake. The BBQ was also brand new. There were DVDs, video games and a CD player which was fantastic for rainy days. The bedrooms were all very comfortable and spacious. Everything was spotless. My only suggestion would be to have a couple of sets… Read more “Fantastic location, within walking distance to the village and beach”
The house is very comfortable, well furnished and welcoming
Thank you for a great week. We were lucky with the weather, travelled to lots of great beaches: Culdaff, Port Salon, Five Fingers Strand. The house is very comfortable, well furnished and welcoming. Sorry to leave. We will recommend strongly to all friends. Good Luck
This house more than satisfied our needs
This house more than satisfied our needs. Can’t think of anything more we could have needed. Our first impression was of a very clean well-maintained house. The kitchen was so well equipped and the bedrooms and bathrooms were really well presented. Even travelling with young kids you could arrive with just your suitcases and everything else is available. We had a 2yr old with us and the back garden is… Read more “This house more than satisfied our needs”
Their generosity & hospitality were second to none
We had a great holiday while staying in this fabulous cottage at end of August. Great location – quiet and tranquil. Close to a fantastic beach, shop, bars and restaurant. The owners, Sharon & Glen, had the place perfectly prepared for our arrival – immaculately clean and well equipped. Their generosity & hospitality were second to none. The weather during our stay wasn’t the best, but there were books, board… Read more “Their generosity & hospitality were second to none”
The accommodation was superb and we could not fault it in any way
The whole family enjoyed the weekend immensely, but it was just too short to do everything we would have liked. The accommodation was superb and we could not fault it in any way. The wine and chocolates were a lovely touch (for my wife’s birthday) and the flowers were beautiful. One wee complaint – you could have arranged for better weather!! Seriously though the weather did not detract in any… Read more “The accommodation was superb and we could not fault it in any way”
The house was perfect, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated
I booked the house last minute for the May bank holiday after having been let down by someone else. The house was perfect, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, comfy beds and the kitchen had everything we could possibly have needed. The garden is really secure, we had a toddler in our party so was ideal. The village of Culdaff itself is great, two great pubs McGrorys and the one beside the… Read more “The house was perfect, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated”
We’ve been with five guys from Holland. Late fifty, still alive and kicking
We’ve been with five guys from Holland. Late fifty, still alive and kicking …… We enjoyed the house, Culdaff, Donegal and the people over there. Live music as well, also in Derry and Belfast. Splendid. We’ll recommend the House in Culdaff for the place in town, it’s quite comfortable and near to the sea and the village. We had a wonderful time !! Peer, Frans, Giel, Jos and Fons
Fantastic property – large, clean, quiet neighbourhood, well maintained with all needed amenities. Great beach at Culdaff, but you are also close to a number of others – our favourite was five finger Strand. Great base for exploring Donegal. Owner was prompt on all and any questions. Highly recommend.
Having driven from London and tired from the journey we were greeted with a blazing beautiful fire
