    Beautiful location

    The view of the countryside and Atlantic way very relaxing. Hostess was efficient and helpful. Thanks again

    5/5 Excellent

    Comfortable apartment with lovely views

    The apartment was well-equipped and comfortable and in a convenient location for touring County Donegal and the Wild Atlantic Way. Unfortunately, the weather was cloudy, rainy and windy for most of the time, so we enjoyed having such a lovely apartment to return to and relax in.

    Everything and more

    You never know what you’re really going to get when you travel and The Snug was a delight surprise. I can’t say enough about this little place, Sheila’s quick responses to my inquiries, and the awesome location. The tiny (and I mean tiny) and quiet hamlet of Dunkineely is not a destination town but it’s a fantastic home base to make day trips from. The off-street parking is also a huge bonus (people park on the side walk because the road is so narrow). There is a nice little convenience/grocery store a mere block away. One cafe (didn’t try) and 4 bars (I only went to Mac’s and it was great). You’ll definitely need a car to get around. This isn’t a mass transit or even a walking area. The sights and experiences of Donegal require a car. This is a self-catering apt so be prepared to supply your own TP once it runs out. Everything else was extremely well provided. There is a washing machine (no dryer) and a dish washer. Internet worked flawlessly. There is also a lovely back yard. You can gaze out onto a farmer’s field and Inver Bay — very peaceful. Small warning: the walls are thin. Not sure if the adjoining apt had full-time renters or other travelers but it can get noisy. I needed ear plugs at night to sleep. I would return to The Snug in a heartbeat: absolutely loved it.

    5/5 Excellent

    Just loved it. Worried about no reception but a quick call to Sheila the property manager and we were in. We loved the place. Quaint village, excellent view from the apartment. Everything was clean and great having everything to cook meals. She also gave us tips about the area. We loved Sleive Leig Cliffs and then took the long way back which was lovely.

    All you would need for a comfortable relaxing break

    We had the upstairs property which has 2 good sized bedrooms and a cozy lounge. The kitchen was well appointed and the whole flat was clean and modern. There is a large shared back garden which is secure and our two small dogs loved it! The village has a small shop for provisions and 4 pubs - we enjoyed the music and craic in Macintyres and at least 2 of the pubs have beer gardens. There is no restaurant as such in the village but Mary Murtins in the next village is good and there are plenty restuarants in Donegal Town and Killibegs A taxi back from Donegal town is around 30 Euros though there is a bus service. Overall this was a great place for a break and we hope to be back - maybe to try the ground floor apartment (we got a sneeky peek at this from our neighbours!)
