“Clean and comfortable but equipment showing signs of age.”
The property is in a beautiful situation which we both enjoyed. The scenery from the front of the property was of Donegal Bay. Maureen, the cleaner/organiser was most helpful. Margaret and Francis

“The property is in a beautiful location but sadly is getting a bit tired.”
There is damp and mould on the wall downstairs. When we stripped the bed before leaving it was then we discovered that the pillows and mattress are quite stained. There was only one cereal bowl so had to take it in turns. That said it was reasonably clean. There was heating and after a few days the smell of damp subdued. Easy to find, easy parking and doors drive to Killibegs.- Patricia Louise, April 2022
“Mr. Ward answered my questions immediately which was lovely.”
It meet our needs and if were every back in the area we would stay there again. Was a great place to relax with a million dollar view. Needs just a little TLC. Jim and JoAnn - Phoenix, Az. USA- James, August 2021
“Idealic and incredible value for money, views were incredible and the perfect get away!”- Samantha, September 2020
“The Apartment was great.”
All the cooking Facilities are there. Comfortable bed upstairs with adjoining toilet but if you are 6ft tall (not me) the ceiling in low. Downstairs showeroom is great but the apt could do with a refurb. All very clean and tidy and would stay there again. Def no phone signal or wifi which would be a plus if could be sorted on the rainy days. But i really enjoyed my time there and the people who live round there are very friendly. Great for long walks and so many great places to visit within 20miles of the apt.- Barry Mc, August 2020
“The house is in a lovely location with views of the sea and the beautiful Donegal countyside.”
There are some lovely walks nearby and easy access to a beach safe for swimming. It is very comfortable, clean and well equipped, with everything you need to self-cater. There is a double bed and single bed so would be suitable for 3 to stay comfortably. We enjoyed staying here very much in this peaceful place.- Debby, August 2020
“Breathtaking Scenery”- Patricia, March 2020
“The house could be best described as inverted TARDIS - Cleaner from the outside!”
Especially the bathroom was in a dreadful state: The tiling was so badly made and holey, that an invasion of centipedes came out of the gaps ervery night. Theres was a constant smell of mold and black stains everywhere. Also the shower door hinges were broken. Furthermore the mattresses were very saggy and the sofa stained and dirty. We tried to clean as much as possible by ourselves, but it remained disgusting. Sorry to say that, but it was a very disapointing experience.- Bernd, August 2019
“We asked the owner for a bread knife, cheese grater, and potato peeler and these were duely provided - we felt they should have been provided in the first case.”
Fantastic location and we enjoyed the music festival going on in Kilcar in the first week of August- most events were free. Irish language is still very strong in this area. We had to wait 5 days before the top of Slieve League was free of cloud and it was safe to go up the Pilgrim Path. Lower view point is accessible in all weathers.- Bev, August 2019
“The equipment was very poorly”- Kevin, July 2019
“I did not know this part of Ireland before.”
This property is a great place to get to know this part of Ireland, get to know nature and enjoy a good holiday. We also visited Kilcar and Kilybegs to run along the local roads. The stay was very successful. The host of the facility very nice. We will definitely visit this area.- Jacek, July 2019
“This is just the best place I ever was in Ireland.”
The owner was very very nice and friendly. The place was clean and there was everything you need to feel home. An Nead is placed in a location that seem to be paradise. :)- Brigitte, November 2018
“Very nice cottage beautiful view”- Romuald, September 2018
“Brilliant location and good amenities in the cottage.”
Directions could be improved as quite hard to follow. No welcome whatsoever. Key was under the mat but no instructions about anything in the house. Would have been useful to know what to do re waste disposal, some contact numbers, etc. Lots of random leaflets left by previous occupants. Would have been nice to have had milk in the fridge or at least directions to the nearest shop. There was a lot of random food left in the cupboard- in opened packets and some past the sell by date. Also the shower door and cooker hood were broken . Eventually we found three towels in cupboard under the stairs - one had definitely seen better days! It is hardly a romantic retreat! There are two single beds which need new mattresses and a settee facing the washing machine from which it is very difficult to view the television. It was much smaller than I had imagined considering the price we paid. It is in an ideal spot but with a bit of attention to detail could be so much better. I am surprised that Sykes didn't have a welcome pack as standard. Attention to the outside area would also improve its appeal.- Caroline, August 2018
“We have booked two cottages with you, An Nead not great, damp, blocked drains, which we cleared, untidy outside, shower grimey, cleaned by us , it was functional, but I left a list of things in the guest book, that would improve visitors stays, but for minimal outlay.”
It lacked, attention to detail. Previous guests had also made comments. We are on Spiddal Cottage this week, amazing as usual.- Vanessa Janie, June 2018
“Fantastic views from the property.”
Great location.- Christian, May 2018
“Charming little cottage.”
Perfectly suited for a couple. The location and the view is wonderful. Prefect starting point to explore this part of Donegal. The owner is friendly and attentioned. Look to come back some day.- Joseph, May 2017
“Everything was made to spend good holidays.”
Dish washer, washing machine, dryer, so that you do not have to think about the housework ! The whole house was very clean. And of course having breakfast looking at the ocean was unforgettable !- Buston, October 2016
“The cottage has a wonderful view of the sea and at night if you look out of the bedroom windows, you can see a string of twinkling lights across the bay.”
It is a very peaceful place if you need to get away from the rat race. The scenery in this area is spectacular, best we've seen in Ireland so far. We couldn't believe how reasonably priced this cottage is considering where it is!- Susan, September 2015
“A great place to go to!”
A cosy cottage with everything you need for a holiday. The owner has good furniture taste and we enjoyed having our meals with a sea view. Absolutely recommendable! We would come again.- Birgid, July 2015
“An Nead; an ideal and comfy accommodation for two people.”
Clean and well equipped. At the kitchen table just sit and relax with a superb 180 degree panoramic view across the estuary to Sligo. Deserted sandy beach, with cliffs at each end, below cottage and within in 5 minutes travel, an ideal bird watching spot. Owner friendly. No noisy neighbours. You couldn't ask for more!- Keith, May 2015
“Quite location, with handy deserted beach 5 minutes drive, panoramic views across to Sligo and Mayo.”
The velux windows in the bedroom gave a new dimension to bedtime, stars and full moon, no light diffusion to spoil the effect. Appliances top of the range. Friendly neighbours. Ideal for a couple, could have stayed for much longer.- Keith, September 2013
Wonderful landscape, view and nature surroundings.- Cornelia, August 2013
