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 that it would not live up to the images and descriptions provided but the house itself was lovelier than expected. Having driven from London and tired from the journey we were greeted with a blazing beautiful fire, the smell of peat burning, every facility in terms of kitchen, bathroom and sleeping facilities already provided and with an extra special touch of Christmas decorations and welcoming gifts. There are 5 lovely bedrooms. The 2 at the back of the house having a glorious view over Culdaff Bay. The main bedroom is ensuite and there are 2 other bathrooms. We needed as large a house as this because although there was only the three of us initially. My wife, myself and my 9-year-old son, we were having a number of relatives staying over the Christmas period. The winter weather in Culdaff is extremely mercurial, our first week there was as mild as spring and we spent over 2 hours every day exploring the beautiful beaches and climbing rocks. The next 2 and half weeks the weather was wilder but equally as exciting. I think I now prefer the winter weather to the summer. As with all relatives at Xmas we love to see them arrive and we love to see them go so the first and last bits of our holiday were just wonderful. There is no wifi in the house and I would encourage Glenn and Sharon to keep it that way. We read books, we played games, we got out all because of the lack of wifi. If needed all email can be checked in McGrory’s hotel. The only thing I felt was slightly missing was the absence of Irish stations on the television. For us emigrants its lovely to fall back into the culture of Ireland for a while although we survived without the late late show. Bunagee cottage provided us with a wonderful holiday and on a personal note my health was challenged in 2015 and my stay in Culdaff was wonderfully recuperative. A beautiful holiday was had by all and I look forward to returning to Bunagee cottage soon.
