Customer reviews of holiday homes in Burtonport
We all had a fabulous week on Inishcoo and Oscar looked after us really well… The older boys played a game of Risk that lasted the entire week and absolutely loved it so one of our first jobs when we got back home was to get our own set down from the attic. The weather wasn’t too great but it was nice enough to get out and explore the island most days and we all enjoyed it very much. We’ve all posted lots of pictures and references to Inishcoo on our Facebook pages and already have lots of people saying they’d love to go too, so hopefully you’ll get some more enquiries from this.
We also met Tim in the Lobster Pot and he looked after us really well even though the place was very busy when 12 of us and arrived in looking for dinner. The oysters and crab claws were delicious and everyone enjoyed their meal. We would love to return at some other time. Thanks again for an amazing holiday.
We had a wonderful time and everything was perfect. We had a wonderful time fishing exploring and generally relaxing (well needed). Your home on Inishcoo is beautiful and we are lucky that you share such a treasure. My husband promised me that the library could keep him occupied for many weeks. Some of the books that my daughter pulled were very old and interesting reading from 1915 and on. My daughter loved the children’s play den. My son loved fishing and caught his first fish with great excitement. All in all everyone was blown away by the peaceful beauty of the island. We would love to come back in the future.
WHAT an idyllic weekend we all had at Inishcoo! No wonder you love the place. As I said yesterday thank you all so much for sharing your little piece heaven with us.
I don’t know where to start….I think the breathtaking light that suffused the house, the sea, the islands, everywhere – that was so unexpected and completely stunning. I guess that was why the sea so clear and such a striking green colour. People talk about artists flocking to the south coast of France because they revel in the unique quality of light, but I do think the Donegal luminosity is a well kept secret. As you said yourself, the place is bewitching.
Then the very natural, easy going completely open and so likable people around you there – you could not ask for more.
I keep thinking I am on a Greek Island – so warm and the colours are dazzling!
Arrived safely on the island just before dark last night. House is beautiful and views fantastic. Couldn’t be better
What a phenomenal place! Went for a wonderful walk among the most incredible variety of wildflowers in glorious sunshine; watched the ferries pass while sitting out reading books on the terrace, after a disastrous evening’s Bridge for me! Utter magic the whole day!
Want to say a big thank you and to let you know we all had a fabulous time on Inishcoo last weekend.
The weather wasn’t the best but we did manage to venture out around the island for a few walks with the kids we even met the local cows north of the island! My wife Nicola had a lovely 40th birthday and some of the couples have been talking about wanting to come again with the family.
The house and island are a tour de force. You saved a very nice surprise for me with your magnificent library. What a delight and the perfect place to while away a soft Donegal day.
Your house is utterly gorgeous. You must be so thrilled with it. What fun for the family to have such a nice place to holiday.
