"Dear John & Oonagh, Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for the kindness you have shown us. Your hospitality went beyond, you made us feel like family. Our every need was anticipated and the cottage was far beyond our expectations. The Loft is the most beautiful and cosy cottage we have ever seen, (like a fairy tale). We all look forward to coming back soon. You both and your lovely home have made our holiday 10+ Everyone should experience this even just once in a lifetime."

"My wife and I rented 'The Loft' and 'Dovedale' Cottages for our group of 11. These cottages are an absolute gem. Lovely location, beautiful cottages and wonderful, informative and friendly owners. The cottages were clean, modern amenities yet with rustic look. What a deal for a weeks rental. John, the owner, recommended a local pub, 'Railway Inn' for our pleasure after a day of exploring and that was also a hidden gem and very close by. I highly recommend these cottages and hopefully will be able to rent again the next time we visit Ireland."

Andy & Jennifer

"These are the best equipped self-catering cottages we have ever stayed at in thirty two year traveling across the world and a great credit to tourism product in Northern Ireland and so central for touring all of Northern Ireland."
