If you are seeking a gorgeous house, beautifully furnished, with amazing views, of the ocean, near Ardara, please don’t look any further … this, is a heavenly spot, at the end of a road…so no through traffic,,it is quiet and serene…you are a few minutes walk from a beautiful beach…which you have to yourself, most of the time. It is a stunning spot…only about 10mins drive to Ardara. Hugh and his wife, were brilliant hosts, who provide everything you will need. The house itself, has lots of light, with all the windows and a view, from ever one. The house is very well equipped. All in all, an absolutely gorgeous place, that I wish I could live in ❤️ Thank you again Hugh, for being so understanding

Ocean view was a fantastic holiday home equipped with everything you required.The location was peaceful and surrounded by the nearby beach and farms.Ardara.was a lovely town with hotels and restaurants and was about a 5 miles away While on holiday ,we visited the beautiful Arranmore island and we took the cruise on the Sliabh Liag Aclantic tours from Killybegs which was fascinating.The near by beaches at Portnoo and Maghera were stunning.Finally , Hugh the owner of this property was a pleasure to work with and was helpful and kind .I do hope to go back in the near future and highly recommend Ocean View..Ps we had the most beautiful week of weather which was a bonus.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Just back from a lovely two week stay at Ocean View. A modern, bright and comfortable home. So well-equipped! Everything we needed, from beach chairs and a flask to a kitchen that was a joy to cook in. All the modern essentials - dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Plenty of space for a family of 6. Two double en suites and a twin room. Great sea views from all. We were grateful for the telly and Netflix during the wet weather and the boys enjoyed the toy chest! Great base for exploring. Loved walking to the beach and had some lovely swims here (often had the beach to ourselves!). About 20 mins drive to the stunning Maghera beach and caves and an hour from Silver Strand beach - two of our favourites. Would highly recommend this house. Great value, stunning location and a real home away from home. Hugh is a great host, very helpful and easily contactable. Would love to return!

The modern, spacious and luxurious house would be a joy to stay in anywhere. Set in a beautiful and tranquil corner of Donegal, it is the perfect retreat. Many thanks to Hugh, for going out of his way to help us find a particular service that we needed.

Enjoyed a wonderful week at ocean view. House is modern, spotless and well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing trip away. A highlight of our stay was without a doubt the beautiful beach located a minute’s walk from the house, it is ideal for swimming and walking on. The house is in an ideal location to explore Donegal and the surrounding area. The town of Ardara is host to a variety of fantastic restaurants, there is definitely something to suit everyone! Overall couldn’t fault my stay and cannot wait to visit again.

Excellent modern house with perfect equipment for cooking and entertainment. The place is outstanding, fully in nature and very quiet. Easy and fast communication with owner. We enjoyed every minute. The beach nearby offers swimming and walks , a costal walk is nice but a bit complicated. You can do many superb trips from here. Looking forward to coming back.

Ocean View Cottage is wonderful. Great location overlooking the Atlantic, completely equipped, spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable and homey. The rental experience was a pleasure. The owner communicated every detail and showed genuine interest in providing a great experience. We love the beautiful Donegal coast and wouldn't stay anywhere else when we return.

The Good: This booking is an excellent value. The home is lovely, with shiny new appliances and gorgeous views across the water. We ended up putting (I think) 10 euros in the electric meter in our 5 day stay, which is perfectly reasonable. Laundry facilities are good, which is important for international travelers. Hugh is very responsive and helpful. My husband had a flare up of a chronic medical problem and was restless at night, which kept us both from sleeping, so we asked for the second room to be unlocked and he sent the very kind Evelyn right over. (As a side note, the pharmacist in Donegal was also lovely; she called and got him an appointment with a local doctor so he could get a prescription renewed.) Hugh also left us towels since we were coming from abroad, which was appreciated. Note for the fastidious: For a 5-day stay we got one hand and one bath towel each, which was fine for us, but I know some are more fussy. My own mother, for example, uses a fresh towel for each bathing session. So bring your own if you're local or perhaps request more if you are not. There is a large packet of tourist information at the house as well, which is very handy. Not Bad, But Things You Might Want To Know: WiFi is not listed as an amenity, so we were not surprised to find none, but we were a bit discomfited by finding ourselves with no mobile service at the house and no house phone. It's possible that international roaming was our trouble, and locals providers can get a signal with no problem, but we were dead in the water at the house. Our son is at university and can (mostly) care for himself, but it still made me nervous to be out of contact, and we also left an elderly dog in the care of relatives and I didn't like their being unable to get hold of me. We could drive down to the main road and get a phone signal so it wasn't a huge deal, but it could be a bigger deal for some. As I say above, the house is beautiful and the modern kitchen has all the utensils and cooking implements you will need, but that is all. We had to go to the store for salt, pepper, and sugar. We have booked at least 20-25 self catering places in England, Wales, Isle of Man, Scotland (mainland and Orkneys), and Ireland. Most landlords leave bread, butter, milk, and cooking spices, along with tea and coffee and sugar. The description does not say to expect this, so the assumptions were our fault, but I wanted to mention it in case others made the same ones. Bring everything with you if you're going to cook at the house. Another surprise was that we had to pay 6 euro for a special rubbish bag at the local store and find the correct crossroads to leave it on Friday morning for pickup. (I would honestly rather have had the E6 added to our bill and found the bag already in the house.) Once we took out the rubbish on Friday we had two more days at the house and could not find more regular bags for the kitchen can, which meant another trip to the store for a package of trash bags that we would not want to schlep back home in our luggage. Something else you might want to pack or pick up on your way in. Much of this is likely less of an issue for locals coming by car from their homes. One other thing--when you book you are emailed several pages of instructions and information. PRINT THIS or save it to a device from which you can view it offline (recall no WiFi) because there is no printout at the house. Oh, and this was not an issue for us at all, but if you are hoping the three (very nice) showers will get your party out the door faster in the mornings, you should know that you can't run more than one shower at the same time because it will trip a breaker. (We did not test this--it's in the info--though on our last day we got up and found no outlets functioning. Finally found the main outlet breaker and flipped it and everything came back on. No idea if that was caused by something we did.) In summary, we loved the house and the location and the booking fee and would have paid more for WiFi and a few more things in the kitchen. Maybe offer an optional extra charge and setup for people coming by plane or who just prefer to prepay rubbish bags, etc.? Thanks for everything!

We spent a lovely weekend at ocean view. The Donegal weather wasn't too kind to us although the blaze of the beautiful open fire added to the very comfortable surroundings with amazing views of the crashing waves of the atlantic. Hugh had provided everything we could have needed for a nice relaxing break and the complimentary wine was very much appreciated. Thankyou

About the neighbourhood
Loughros Point is a long narrow peninsula located to the west of the town of Ardara and is widely recognised as one of the most sceanic areas in Donegal. On the way out from Ardara town to the holiday home there are spectacular views of the Loughros Estuary and high moorlands on one side and the Bluestack Mountains on the other. The narrow winding county lanes throughout the peninsula are ideal walking terrain. Maghera beach, the spectacular white sands across the estuary, is a 30 minute drive from the holiday rental – though think of it as a venue for a bracing stroll rather than a leisurely dip, since the currents can be treacherous. Less than a 10 minute drive from Ocean View is the town of Ardara. This is a bustling town situated in
