Bunagee Cottage Culdaff

This delightful ‘Home from Home’ is just one mile from Culdaff’s spectacular Blue Flag beach, and site within the confines of Culdaff village, with views out to the river estuary and sand dunes beyond. The cottage has five bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a lovely comfortable living space with double doors leading on to a large open-plan kitchen and dining area. From there, patio doors lead onto a lovely private garden with an outdoor seating/dining area with barbeque provided.

A five-minute walk takes you to the centre of the village for the morning paper and a lovely coffee and tray bake at Cul a Ti. Or get your steps in before breakfast, walking out to the beach along the river estuary and looping back along the footpath into the village, a beautiful 2 mile walk in all. If you’re an early bird you’ll catch the sun rising over the beach. Spectacular! Or head to Bunagee Pier and see the days catch being landed. Or catch Amazing Grace set sail on her daily dolphin-watching excursions. Culdaff is charming. Make sure to pop into the local pubs for a bit of craic. McGuinness’ Bar and The Culdaff Arms offer live music throughout the summer. McGrorys, established in 1924, is a family run pub/restaurant, serving great food, and hosts traditional Irish music sessions a couple of times a week in summer, or catch a live band in the Backroom. Look out for Jenny’s Pop Up bakery during summer, the cupcakes are ‘yummy’!

We had a fantastic time

Thank you so very much for the welcome pack. We had a fantastic time. The house was wonderful. It was brilliantly appointed and there really wasn’t anything that we would have wanted that wasn’t there. It was warm, clean and welcoming. The instruction booklet was most helpful. The kids had an absolute blast despite the sea being so cold. We will definitely look again for availability when returning to Culdaff.… Read more “We had a fantastic time”

Beautiful and well stocked house in great location!

We stayed at the Bunagee Cottage with some friends for a week for our wedding at McGrory’s in Culdaff. The cottage is beautifully decorated, well stocked and in a great location not only if you would like to be close to Culdaff but also to lots of sights in the area. The view from the back is lovely; quiet, green and with gorgeous sunrises if you get lucky with the… Read more “Beautiful and well stocked house in great location!”

Perfect family choice

Bunagee Cottage was perfect for our family holiday. 4 generations all together. The house had everything we needed, very well equipped, comfortable, lots of space, and the outdoor space was perfect. Safe enclosed garden with seating, bbq, toys, clothesline. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Close to beach and local shop. A home from home. We would love to come back and we recommend Bunagee Cottage to… Read more “Perfect family choice”

We’re going back next year!

We had a great stay at Bunagee Cottage in July with our children, their partners and our grandchildren. The house was perfect for our large group – spotlessly clean, spacious rooms throughout with an enclosed back garden, all the facilities we wanted and board games/cards to keep the children happy.  Culdaff village only a 5 minute walk with a shop, McGrorys hotel, 2 pubs and a takeaway, and the beautiful… Read more “We’re going back next year!”

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”

The house is without doubt the best equipped house we have had the pleasure of staying at

We stayed at the cottage with our 2 boys and other members of our family in July. The house is, without doubt, the best-equipped house we have had the pleasure of staying at. Sharon and Glenn had covered all the bases and some. If you have a baby, there is a beautiful rocking chair for feeding, changing station and even baby monitors. The kitchen table comfortably seats 8 people and… Read more “The house is without doubt the best equipped house we have had the pleasure of staying at”

The house is very well equipped and also has many useful things to offer for families with children

The house is located in a small development, where many families from Northern Ireland have bought their weekend cottage. The location is very quiet in the evenings and during the week, as most families only come here on weekends. The house is very well equipped and also has many useful things to offer for families with children: stroller, high chair, travel bed, children’s games etc. The house is very spacious… Read more “The house is very well equipped and also has many useful things to offer for families with children”

When returning from a holiday I always ask myself the question ‘Would I return to the same place again’?

Bunagee cottage is a clean, spacious, modern home in a quiet spot just a short walk from the centre of Culdaff. When returning from a holiday I always ask myself the question ‘Would I return to the same place again’? With Bunagee cottage the answer would be an emphatic yes.

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”

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”

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”

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 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.

Meban,

Having driven from London and tired from the journey we were greeted with a blazing beautiful fire

Although Culdaff has been a holiday venue for my family all of my life ( A modest 50 years) this was the first time we had decided to visit at Christmas. We came across Bunagee Cottage online and although in the higher range of cost for rental in Culdaff we decided to go ahead with the booking. There is always that nervousness when having rented or booked a property online… Read more “Having driven from London and tired from the journey we were greeted with a blazing beautiful fire”
