A large group of us stayed in Dunowen for a girls weekend. The house is so luxurious and is decorated beautifully. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bed linen is of very high quality which resulted in two sound nights sleep. The rooms are to the standard of a 5 star hotel.
Everything you need is in the house. There is a large kitchen which is fully equipped with a separate utility room with another fridge! It is an ideal party location as it has a large dining room which catered for all of our group. We were lucky enough to have a meal cooked for us by Kela and Stephen which was absolutely divine.
There is wifi available which is necessary as phone coverage is difficult in most areas of the house.
The area the house is located in is stunningly beautiful. It is a short walk to the cove and a slightly longer walk to the beach. Clonakility is a 20 minute car drive but we loved the house so much we stayed around the area.
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!
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
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.
