“Great experience. Definitely recommend for large group.”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed at Dunowen House while over from Miami. Celebrating my brother's 60th -over from Vancouver. We had 16 people staying on the first night and 12 afterwards. The 6 bedrooms easily accommodated all of us. Kela was very welcoming and the shortbread and fruitcake she made for us was delicious and very appreciated. Kela catered dinner for us the 2nd night The entire meal was great and much more convenient than having to go looking for local restaurant to accommodate large group. This is a really great place to stay and definitely recommend. Looking forward to going back.

“Highly Recommended!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My family flew to Ireland from New York tp spend a week at dunowen house with our extended family. We had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful..... spacious, modernly updated, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, wonderful grounds, private beach. It was nestled among picturesque farmland minutes from the ocean...the views of the ocean and the countryside on the surrounding roads were breathtaking. The owners of the house could not have been nicer. When we arrived the fridge was stocked with breakfast foods and the owner had baked us scones. They stopped by to make sure we had ideas for where to take the kids on rainy days. They made us fresh blackberry jam from the blackberry bushes that grow on the property. They really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed.
I would highly recommend Dunowen house to anyone staying in this part of ireland.

My family with grandparents and my 3 sisters families with children ranging from 1-18 all stayed in Dunowen for a week.It was great to accommodate the whole family under one roof. And still there was room for everyone. It was so spacious and beautiful just like the photos.We each had a lovely ensuite room, each one being as good as the next.The pillows and duvets were so comfortable. The attention to detail was perfect. We enjoyed the welcome pack. There were fresh flowers around the house.Our favourite place was the large patio where we had breakfast and dinner each day. The weather was extra good. The kids loved playing in the garden.We had a brilliant time. Thank you Kela & Stephen.
