Holly Glen description

Holiday home
Holly Glen is a detached cottage located just over three miles from the Donegal town of Ardara. This cottage sleeps nine people in four bedrooms, consisting of two first floor doubles with en-suite showers, a ground floor double, a ground floor family room with one double and one single, and a separate bathroom with a freestanding bath. The cottage also has a kitchen with a sitting area and open fire, and a dining room. Outside there is ample off road parking and two patios with furniture. Holly Glen is a convenient base for exploring all that Donegal has to offer.

The town of Ardara in County Donegal is situated in a wide valley where the Owentocher River enters Loughros More Bay. The town offers many craft and gift shops and traditional Irish pubs. There are walks and cycle routes in the area and every year the town hosts a walking festival. Within driving distance is Donegal Town and there are a number of sandy beaches close by.

The West of Ireland conjures up many images; thatched, whitewashed cottages, a flock of sheep on a narrow road, an emerald green field with a stone wall, or the Atlantic waves crashing into towering cliffs and rocky shores.

Oil central heating with open fire. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV with Saorview, DVD, selection of books, games and DVDs.

We had booked and fully paid for Holly Glen in 2020, but unfortunately were not allowed to travel due to covid19 national lockdown. Despite a promise of a voucher to rebook at a later time when restrictions were lifted, we were shafted by Sykes Cottages and the property owners. They did not reply to any attempt to contact them to try to rearrange a stay for later in the year or any attempt to discuss a refund, voucher or even a discount. Very disappointed by this to say the least. This is not the Irish way of conduct or doing business. Bad form.

We have stayed in Hollyglen for a number of years with our family and absolutely love it. Hollyglen is a perfect home from home in an idyllic setting. Everything you could possibly need is on hand. Loving the new mattresses this year making for an extra comfy nights sleep after long days exploring the incredible beaches and scenery nearby. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed the view from cosy Hollyglen into Glengesh Valley with it's hundreds of sheep, lambs and four lamas.. Ardara is a lovely little village with pubs full of great songs and good craic. There are plenty walking tracks around and the busy harbour of Killybegs attracts the visitor with superb Fish 'n Chips at the harbourfront.

Lovely place, very clean and in a peaceful location. I would highly recommend this place to anyone! Really enjoyed our stay & we would definitely visit again. Loved hearing the cuckoo everyday too.

Our stay at Holly Glen cottage exceeded all our expectations! The location of the property along the stunning Glengesh Pass makes for a perfect and tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The spacious living conditions meant it was a very comfortable stay for the 8 of us. On account of the good weather, we enjoyed lots of alfresco dining, taking in the wonderful views and making use of the large bbq and outdoor seating areas. We will definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family and be sure to use Sykes Cottages when booking our next family vacation. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Beautiful cottage in a lovely setting, I think anyone who stays here will be as enthralled as we were. All the local people made us very welcome and lots to do in the area for all ages.

The house was everything you could ask for and much more. The house was so well equipped, very cosy and a real home from home. The area is breathtaking with lots of sightseeing. I would highly recommend it to anyone and hope to return again.
