I decided to stay in Ardara as I wanted a small town vibe and to be within easy reach of Glenveagh National Park and Dunfanaghy, yet also not too far from Slieve League and Donegal Town. Ardara was perfect for that, and it would have been hard to find a better apartment in the town. Ann's place was well-equipped, spacious, clean and tidy, and being a gated complex, was safe and secure with a reserved parking space underneath the building. The only thing that would improve the experience is curtains in the bedrooms - the blinds aren't enough to block out the street light. Still, my father and I really enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend the apartment, as well as Sheila's Cafe opposite the complex which was always a good start to the day.

Modern fully equiped accomodation. Even on rainy days you had everything you needed. Washing and drying easy. Near a lovely pub with nice live music. The chairman of the building, Dessie, helped us very well with the parking and other information. The only thing we missed and we think are necesarry are curtains in the bedrooms.

Die Wohnung ist funktionell aber trotzdem sehr gemütlich.So das bei Regentagen,die in Donegal immer wieder auftreten,es kein Problem gibt,sich auch tagsüber dort aufzuhalten.In dieser Wohnung gibt es genügend Geschirr,Besteck etc.so das der Geschirrspüler auch wirtschaftlich genutzt werden kann.Das einzige Problem was wir hatten, war beim Ensuite Badezimmer. Die Dusche haben wir nicht "in Gang gekriegt ".Da es 2 Badezimmer gibt war das in Ordnung. Das die Wohnung mitten in Adara liegt,das Corner Pub ist nebenan ,ist ein zusätzliches Plus. Kommunikation mit Ann R. funktionierte problemlos.Da Donegal wunderschön ist und Adara eine sehr gute Lage hat,kommen wir immer wieder,Auch in diese Wohnung,100% empfehlenswert..

Een heerlijk appartement voor 3 personen, waarbij de verlichting in de kamer niet helemaal ideaal was. Een pub om de hoek met livemusic en de supermarkt op loopafstand. Koffie en heerlijke taart aan de overkant. We hebben ons uitstekend vermaakt.

Ann's apartment and the area round about Ardara was way more than what we expected! The modern apartment was great to come home to after fantastic beach days at Rosbeg and Naran and in the evening after the fantastic traditional Irish music in the pubs of Ardara. There is so much to discover in Donegal and we hope to be booking in at Ann's apartment again next year. For the cleanliness and use of the numerous utilities at Ann's it's a 10 out of 10 points from us. Thanks for the lovely holiday and all the best, Nick and Regine.

This lovely, clean, inviting apartment-style home has lots of space and a great layout. It has beautiful views of the river from inside the home as well as from the exterior common area, which is quite large. Onsite, secure parking, as well as secured access to the apartment complex, is a nice plus. Fast Internet - it's not fiber fast but it's 30 times faster than the Internet we have in rural USA. Fully equipped kitchen with a well-stocked pantry of oils, spices and condiments as well as all the utensils and extras to make cooking at home as easy as eating out in the wonderful restaurants in Ardara as well as the surrounding areas. The home is located in central Ardara, only a few steps from Nancy's restaurant and The Corner House Pub, yet is very quiet and private. To top it off, we found the best part of Ireland - the unspoiled NW coast. It's old Ireland we were searching for, which is virtually the same as it was 1000s of years ago - save the new age niceties we all rely on each day. County Donegal has wonderful, warm welcoming local people who treated us as if we had been there our entire lives. Cannot wait to return to Ann's apartment and the stunning beauty of County Donegal.
