Really comfortable house and a great place to stay for our week in Donegal, perfect for us and our dogs. Carrickfinn is a beautiful area with some stunning beaches.

Thank you David for your review. It was lovely meeting you, Ann and your parents during your stay in The Old Schoolhouse. Carrickfinn and West Donegal area has breath taking scenery and hopefully you will come and enjoy it another time. Kind regards Cathal & Elma.

“The perfect escape from modern distractions”
Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We were blessed with fantastic weather, friendly locals and outstanding hosts. The beach is a short walk away, where you are met with the warm view of soft golden sands. Mount Errigal and Glenveagh National Park are within a half hour drive and the choice of restaurants around the Wild Atlantic Way offer lots on their menu. You are right beside Donegal Airport, so if you really need to get a wifi connection to the outside world, you can drop in for a coffee, but most restaurants have a suitable connection. The Schoolhouse is a perfect abode with old style twist, well maintained, spacious, clean and with that touch of class. After an adventurous day, the house and fire will welcome you home, as you leave your boots at the door. I wanted the perfect escape from technology, so the family could connect and enjoy the great outdoors of Donegal. In Carrickfinn, I found it and found much more.

“A wonderful venue to relax”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have already spent three consecutive holidays in May at The Old Schoolhouse in Carrickfinn and have booked for our usual dates in 2017.On each occasion we were warmly greeted by Elma and Cathal and on one cold , wet evening they ensured that the house was heated, ready for our arrival.Everywhere was spotless. There is a fully equipped kitchen and utility room and comfortable bedrooms- we especially like the master bedroom upstairs from which there are wonderful views.In the sitting room turf is provided for an open fire to enjoy on cool evenings. There is also a comfortable reading/ sitting area upstairs in this carefully renovated school house.The history attached to the schoolhouse is amazing and Cathal is willing to fill you I with all the details.We look forward to time spent in The Old Schoolhouse each year when we can unwind and enjoy the wonderful locality.

“Beautiful house in a fantastic location”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed here for my wife's birthday with our 2 young children and extended family in May 2016. The house was in a beautiful secluded location and very close to a number of stunning beaches. The old schoolhouse was immaculate and the grounds were very nicely kept, the hosts Alma and Cathal were there to welcome us when we arrived and were just a short distance away if required. Overall we had a very enjoyable weekend at this property and would highly recommend it. We will be back in the future.
