Narin is a small village in Gweebarra Bay, on the west coast of County Donegal. There is great walking country here, with low hills and rolling bog land. Narin has a great sandy beach, ideal for water sports, bathing or just relaxing. Visit Ardara, Dungloe or Donegal Town.

The West of Ireland conjures up many images; thatched, whitewashed cottages, a flock of sheep on a narrow road, an emerald green field with a stone wall, or the Atlantic waves crashing into towering cliffs and rocky shores.

Loved the setting of the cottage, it was very private and the owner was very friendly and welcoming. Loved the area around the cottage, it was convenient to Ardara for shopping.

The Cottage was just perfect. The beaches and scenery to die for, beautiful places to visit, local shop had everything we needed and the people very friendly and helpful.

We loved how spotlessly clean this beautiful house was. The rooms were beautiful and very tastefully decorated just like I would love for my own house. The dishwasher was a great asset because who wants to do dishes on holiday? Loved the shower and particularly loved being able to bring our two dogs, they were able to go outside and as we were the last house in the lane there were no cars to worry about. Also felt very safe in the house. The owners live nearby and were so lovely and helpful, looking forward to going back.

The quiet space, beautiful landscape and very helpful owners. Surrounding countryside, roaming cows and horses that come and see you every day.

The bedrooms were lovely and the house was very cosy - the wood burning stove was brilliant! It was nice to be a bit secluded.

Staying at Mary Kate's cottage was absolute bliss. I really want it to be mine but if it was I wouldn't sell it either. I will dream about it until we return, hopefully next year. The owner and his family were an absolute pleasure to deal with, the bedroom I stayed in is the bedroom of my dreams and I will pretend I am in it when I fall asleep. In the peace and quietness of the beautiful green Donegal countryside with one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen just a half hour walk and a friendly pub just half an hour the other way down the road too. Absolutely perfect and I wish I was there now.

Wonderful holiday spent at Mary Kate's Cottage with my husband and two sons (3&4yo) PROs: immaculate, generally very well equipped with plenty of spare blankets, good sized bedrooms with plenty of storage, quiet and safe location for our boys to play outdoors, plenty of space in the laundry outhouse for storing bikes, two sizes of teapot BOTH of which poured perfectly(!), nearby quiet beach is a gem with a superb little beachside coffee hut (although you'd be doing well to walk it in the suggested ten minutes, especially the uphill walk back!) Things that would have made it EVEN better (please note these are such teeny tiny things and did not at all lessen our experience!): coat hooks by the back door, a few more store cupboard staples like olive oil etc, some laundry detergent (even with an honesty box to pay into), a bigger settee for cozying up on for movie nights on wet Donegal nights, a better vacuum cleaner, more head space at the base of stairs (an absolute impossible task!) to save my 6ft2 husband's poor bashed head! But again, these such are totally minute details and def didn't detract from our holiday!

We stayed at this beautiful Irish house 1st week in July 2013. This house has been restored to retain the typical Irish house, it has a wonderful granite fire surround with a multi fuel burning fire, good sized bedrooms and every kitchen facility you would need on a self catering holiday. I would totatally recommend staying at this house to see for yourself the interior, and advantage of staying here. The owners live close to the house and are very helpful with directions and local amenitites and local surroundings.

The house is at the end of a grassy lane surrounded by farmland which seems to be exclusively populated by inquisitive horses. Not having holidayed in this part of Donegal before we were really taken aback by the natural amenities on offer. The beaches are magnificent, Tramore strand and the coves around Rosbeg were great for the kids. There is a Pub that serves food nearby and few more and some shops in Portnoo/Naran. Ardara is only 10 mins away. Our impression was that the house has been recenly refurbished. In fact the appliances were new. There is a well equipped kitchen and reasonably large sitting come dining room. Each bedroom has double beds and storage. The accommodation is of a high standard. There is an out house with a washing machine and dryer. The owners live nearby and helped us out with directions over the phone and were at the house to run through things when we arrived. They kept in contact to make sure all was going well. All in all, if your looking for a well equiped a rural retreat in a period building, you can't go wrong here.
