Beautiful holiday home, very spacious with superb views of Sligo, Mayo, Cavan and Donegal bay.. 20 mins to closest beach, we visited 6. There was great mix of views, relaxation, buzz of Donegal town and great beaches including the spectacular views at Slieve League and St Johns Point. We also enjoyed the walks in the blue stacks accompanied by the sheep. We also spotted wild deer.

The house was clean, safe, roomy and comfortable.. The owners were kind and professional. As a family of 8 we found both the house and the remote location ideal for getting away from the routine and out into the breathtaking beauty of the Bluestacks. We are keen to return.

This accommodation is for those who seek peace & tranquility without being too far from Donegal -it’s an amazing location with sweeping views of valleys, sea and lakes.. The house is tastefully finished & furnished with everything you need, plus some. Hosts are helpful, friendly and kind. It was by far the best accommodation we experienced throughout our long journey through the UK!

An amazing cottage with friendly owners who were very helpful and provided suggestions to places to see and things to do as it was our first visit to Ireland. The scenery around the cottage is beautiful.

Outstanding location and wonderful home to relax and adventure from.. Owners were very helpful and we very much enjoyed our time there. If you want you experience Ireland on the wild Atlantic coast - this is your place

Blue Stack House is an amazing property nestled in the Blue Stack Mountains close to the walking route of the Blue Stack Way. The house has commanding views of Donegal and the Atlantic Coast. The weather was excellent while we were there and we could see all the way to Sligo! The facilities were excellent and everything is clearly well maintained and looked after. The owners were lovely and made us feel really welcome. Only 2.5 hours from the Belfast ferry. We will gladly stay here again.

From the first meeting with the owners it felt we were with family. They could not have been more helpful, always checking if everything was okay for us and if we needed any help whilst in Ireland, we were to contact them. Then the house, the most beautiful holiday home we have stayed at, during our many travels to Ireland, a real home from home, a jewel. I had read the location was remote, but that was exactly what we were looking for, it is only minutes away from Donegal town and a perfect location for walkers, or those of us that enjoy the peace and the beauty the countryside offers. Each morning, we were in awe of the amazing scenery, so much so, we did not want to leave, but as we are returning again in November, it made things easier, knowing we will be returning. Thank you so much for making our stay so unforgettable.

The house was perfect in every way. The rooms are spacious and spotless and the views over Bundoran and Sligo town are spectacular. I hope to return.

The house was perfect in every way. The rooms spacious and spotless. The views over Bundoran and Sligo town were spectacular. We managed 3 very long hikes straight from the house in all directions. There is easy access across the owners land onto the mountain side. Any of these hikes could be sliced up a little to make more realistic days. We also walked down to the Desert graveyard; well worth a visit. The owners Noreen and Con were lovely hosts. Con met us and gave us the full guided tour. We also spotted them in the field across the road with the sheep and in the car and stopped to chat. Both very friendly, knowledgeable of the area and welcoming. I hope to return.

Fantastic house and location. The views were extraordinary and the isolation was just what we were looking for. The house has lots of space and was nice and warm even on some very cold winter days.
Mr Mcveigh

The property is in the Blue Stack Mountains, an area of outstanding natural beauty. There is practically no traffic at the property, which affords a private and relaxing safe environment for guests. Donegal is a short car journey away, as is the beach and the Wild Atlantic Way. The house is well proportioned and equipped to meet the needs of a large extended family.

This is a five star property! A total gem! The house itself had everything you could possibly need - right down to jigsaws for rainy afternoons. It's located in the pristine surroundings of the Bluestack mountains. Everything to help make your stay comfortable has been thought of. The beds are comfy, the bedding is quality, the kitchen is well equipped and there's WiFi! It's a real home from home. The owner's deserve a special mention, they're worth their weight in gold. They took fabulous care of us. So much so we are already planning return trips!

Blue Stack House was a truly lovely house in a beautiful and peaceful setting. The owners could not have been nicer and more welcoming. It was just a lovely stay made more special by the warm and friendly welcome we were given. The kids are already eagerly asking when we will book to go back! Would thoroughly recommend to everyone to book this lovely house.

We had a wonderful stay at Blue Stack House. The owner was very friendly and made us feel so welcome. The house was perfect in every way. The bedrooms were beautiful with comfortable mattresses and the bathrooms large and new. The views from the house far exceeded our expectations. Can't recommend it highly enough!
July 2015
Noreen very kindly met us at the Blue Stack Centre to lead the way to the house, which is quite isolated (and so saved a bit of map reading arguments!). The weather was best described with the words wet and windy but Noreen had the stove lit and a loaf of wheaten ready for us, we couldn't ask for more. The house is large and bright, the bedrooms clean and comfortable. Lots of walking to be done around the area (weather permitting) and while seemingly very remote, Donegal town is not an unreasonable distance away should a visit be required. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get a bit of peace and quiet and enjoy the spectacular views.

Liked the location, the view from the sun room, the friendly hosts and their sheep. In a quiet country location with a fireplace with plenty of fuel, it had a home away from home atmosphere.

The location was lovely and just as described. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Plenty of space in the property and the bathrooms were particularly spacious. The scenery from the property was stunning and the general area was good to explore.

We spent a lovely week at Blue Stack. The house is extremely comfortable and very well set up for 8 people. The owners are very thoughtful in so many ways. Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing stay!

It's a perfect house in the middle of a beautiful landscape. Peaceful and perfect if you want to have a real break. Plus, the owner is really kind and nice. I really recommend this cottage.

A fantastic stay here! Very quiet and serene which was just what we needed after visiting the bigger cities. The owner was very friendly and we were lucky enough to see her and her son do some sheep sheering. The kids loved all the sheep around us as well, a great experience for them! Would love to return one day! Thanks for everything!
