“Fantastic Find”

We stayed here in September 14 as part of our honeymoon. It was quite easy to find and the location is just brilliant. Gerard had left us a bottle of wine, milk, butter and the basic essentials to get us started. The barn is so comfortable and the location really allows you relax. We didn't turn on the TV but tuned into lyric fm and simply enjoyed the scenery. We had our dog with us and he didn't take long to get adjusted. I can't recommend this property enough and also the house beside it which caters for more with about 4 beds... We would definitely return. We were also so lucky with the weather. Great location to appreciate and tour Donegal.

“Perfect base in a wonderful location”

Old Phil's Barn is a fantastic place to stay for a relaxing break in one of the most scenic places you could wish to find. All the facilities we needed were found within a well designed and cleverly decorated property that fitted in perfectly with the local area. Ann and Gerard were very helpful and made it clear that we could contact them at any time if we had any problems, however there was no need to get in touch as the barn was very well maintained. The Welcome pack as a great touch and helped us to settle in straight away. Dunaff and the surrounding areas are wonderful places to have a relaxing break. We highly recommend both the property and the location.

“Absolutely amazing relaxing getaway!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Just home from staying here for a long weekend! Perfect location, beautiful drives and walks every direction. Barn itself is faultless! Had the most relaxing stay. Electric blankets in bed, brand new showers, dishwasher, washing machine, sounds really modern right?? This cute little barn has been decrotared to barn perfection with little vintage antiques everywhere, great homely irish feel. No internet for a full weekend was bliss!
Will definitely be back!
Thank u ann for a lovely weekend! Karen.

“A wee gem!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

An amazing holiday in this comfortable, cosy barn enjoying fresh breathtaking views of the country and the sea.. First time in Ireland, just beautiful ! Ann, the owner, welcomed us very warmly and everything was prepared on our arrival. The barn is very well maintained and we had everything we needed.
We are missing the peaceful scenic views we used to wake up to every morning. The village people so helpful and friendly. Thank you Ann & all the people at Clonmany / Dunaff community! A holiday to remember!

“Can't wait to go back to Old Phil's Barn!”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We have just returned from a week at Old Phil's Barn, and we had the most relaxing time ever. The cottage is absolutely beautiful, as are the views. Cottage amenities are second to none and the rental price was very reasonable. We felt at home immediately and Ann the owner was so lovely and friendly; we really appreciated the welcome pack of food too; a really thoughtful touch. We had our Boxer dog with us for his first holiday, and he loved it too. I'm usually a 'have to do stuff' holiday person, but I finally got the point of total relaxation! Already planning our next visit.
