“Perfection”
Reviewed 21 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This property was was outstanding in ever way. Kela & Stephen (the owners) were so helpful & welcoming, from lighting the fire to home made scones - we couldn't have asked for more.
It was like entering another world for the weekend, the decor, the bathrooms, the living rooms & the well equipped kitchen, the biggest problem was choosing which area to relax in. A difficult decision!
We are already planning a return visit to this idyllic hideaway!

“5* stay for a luxury hen”
Reviewed 6 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

Had an incredible stay at this house, which is absolutely 5 star, it was perfect for a hen party which consisted of friends and family. Each of the bedrooms had amazing en suites which are like toilets at a spa resort, the attention to detail in the decorating of the property is incredible.

Kela and Stephen themselves served up an onsite catered 3 course meal which was restaurant quality- if not better. Was blown away by their service and attention.

The ground look amazing, unfortunately the weather stopped us from exploring the gardens, but we were not disheartened to stay inside!

cannot recommend it enough, cant wait to go back!

After a long travel from Donegal, it was a delight to arrive at Orchard Cottage. Beautiful destination, so peaceful and tranquil. The cottage is perfect for a peaceful getaway with beautiful gardens and surroundings. Was beautiful to sit in the garden under the starry sky...many thanks

“Paradise Found”
Reviewed 3 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

Dunowen house is a home from home on a grand scale, with each room tastefully decorated in a luxurious but comfortable way.
We were a family of 18 who love family dining, sitting together to chat over breakfast and BBQs - yet there is plenty of space to escape and enjoy the silence of the garden or just chill and read a book.
The beaches are deserted and perfect for swimming.

Clonakilty is lively but charming, with lots of excellent restaurants and bars to suit all tastes.
A music lovers paradise!

We'll be back I am sure.

“"Practically Perfect in Every Way"”
Reviewed 23 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

I'm being silly quoting Mary Poppins, but Dunowen House and cottage are that perfect. This was the second stay here for our group and it was every bit as lovely as the first. It is such an elegant yet warm property. Dignified, yet homey, it truly has a personality of it's own.
It was so much fun again to travel out during the day, but look so forward to going back "home" in the evenings.
The location is an idyllic country setting, just a short walk to the beach, but close enough to town, shops, restaurants, and pubs if you *have to* go out.
Kela and Steve have done such a wonderful job that it's tempting to try to keep this place a secret, but that wouldn't be fair. ;)
Our third stay is already on the books. Can't wait!!!
