“Tara's is the Tops”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed at Tara's recently with extended family. Having been to Ireland many times I can tell you that Tara's is absolutely in the top 1% of places to stay.
The house itself is huge with 2 ensuite master bedrooms and 1 twin and 1 double room that share a bathroom. It was big enough to easily accommodate 6 adults and 2 children. The kitchen, dining and living room have an open space concept which makes it large and airy. The view from this area is SPECTACULAR and the giant windows make it impossible to ignore. Being Ireland, the scenery changes constantly as the sun and clouds roll by and over the water and you can enjoy this vision as you sit on a very nice deck sipping your tea or cocktail. I might add here, that you are standing in the south of Ireland and looking over Lough Foyle to the north. When in service there is a ferry that can take you over in a short time and save you time in the drive to the sights in the north. The yard is also quite nice and well kept.
The kitchen and bathrooms are modern, as is the whole house, but not in the utilitarian way so common in Europe. Couches and chairs were comfy. The house is very private as it sits on a hill just below the road and there are no other houses next to it. Yet is only a short walk to the local pub and beaches. There is also an old Norman castle nearby and many beautiful beaches and drives along the Inishowen Penisula.
Kate and Gavin are attentive owners and we enjoyed meeting and talking to them. We have told many friends about Tara's and we are hoping to bring them to Ireland in the future and we will definitely be planning on staying there. It's a fantastic place to relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful areas of Ireland. The pictures of this house are very good but do not give it full justice.

We stayed here in the first week of May 2016. The accommodation is excellent. The three doubles and the twin were all lovely rooms. Cooking facilities were spot on. There is plenty of room for a family run around outside though the reality isn't just as big as appears from the photographs. The kitchen/living room area was perfectly suited for the extended family with just a little care needed for the tiled floor. The views are splendid and the whole house at a very comfortable temperature. There are plenty of drives/walks nearly and the children loved the Lama a short distance up the road. Moville is very handy and there is an excellent take-away on the main street, Good food, good quantity, good price. There is also a shop selling Maud's ice-cream! The house was clean & everything satisfactory. We did have to clean out the filter of the tumble dryer to make it work and similarly with the filter on the washing machine, but these were quickly attended to. A brilliant stay.

“Would recommend this property without hesitation”

This house was easy to find and in perfect order. The first obvious advantage is the view, as you drive into the property. Just stunning. Kate and Gavin had had a quick turnaround that day, but you would not have known that there had been guests there before us. The place was spotless. The wine and beautiful cake made for a very nice welcome treat too!

We were travelling with one person with limited mobility. The house was easy for her to navigate, as it is all on one level. We were seven adults for the weekend, but the house felt roomy and not cramped, the open plan kitchen and living room made for a socialable space whilst cooking/dining, the stunning views being the icing on the cake! Having en suites with showers were also a blessing after coming in from walking/ swimming.

The area has much to offer and we could have stayed longer than a weekend so we hope to return. Would recommend this property without hesitation.
