"I was lucky to stay at Árasáin Bhalor for a week-long 'working holiday' in lovely Falcarragh, and found the accommodations to be the perfect mixture of comfort, functionality, and accessibility to the natural beauty of Donegal. I enjoyed the view of the lovely Derryveagh mountains from out my window when working- or even better- the marvelous hiking that is within a few minutes drive. Mary is a terrific host in every sense- and was so patient with me as I attempted my limited Gaeilge (Irish language)! I would highly recommend Árasáin Bhalor for a restful and easy stay in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and hope to be back before too long."

"Mary’s generous hospitality and attention to detail was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. The 2
bed apartment was spacious and well equipped especially in the kitchen (microwave, dishwasher, lots
of plates and cups etc) and a separate utility room with a washer, drier & vacuum cleaner. It was very
clean and the location was superb with lots of local options and nearby areas to explore"

The apartment is very pleasant, comfortable and bright with views of the mountains. It has everything you need. The location is perfect for visiting the area. Mary is extremely helpful and friendly. She gave us loads of great advice on things to do in the area. There are beautiful beaches nearby. Really appreciated the nice touches like lovely homemade Irish wheaten bread, butter, jam, milk on arrival and locally made soaps.

This was a trip for 3 nights and the one bed apartment provided a home from home. Being in the heart of the town there was everything, shops for food as well as a selection of pubs to enjoy the Guinness! Mary the host was fantastic, accommodated the late changes to arrival time and no issue was too much. Highly recommend

Review from 'Wanderingirene' on TripAdvisor, Febuary 2020

Ar Fheabhas! - Excellent!

"We had the chance to stay here for a month in winter. We knew the area already but wanted to live here as locals for a while. Our apartment was the best accommodation we could hope to find. It's all perfectly equipped even for a longer stay. Mary was an excellent host. We truly recommend to get out of the most touristy routes and stay in Falcarragh, and Mary's apartments are located a short walking distance to all you need, five different pubs included ...
looking forward to be back again"

Review by Sinead on Airbnb, August 2020

"The apartment was absolutely perfect and spotlessly clean. it was like a home from home and had everything we could possibly need. Wi-fi was excellent and it was great to have access to our Netflix account on the smart TV to watch a movie and relax in the evening. Mary was an amazing host and looked after us really well. The cake and treats with a carton of milk on arrival were lovely touches. This is a beautiful spot in Donegal, with so much to do and see. I would highly recommend this place to stay. You won't want to leave!"

The perfect place to relax. The location was excellent with lots of facilities near at hand while being very close to the great outdoors.

From the warm welcome to the very clean, comfortable and well-equipped apartment in an excellent location our stay was memorable. Falcarragh makes a great base for exploring the surrounding, natural environment and historical and cultural points of interest. The town is welcoming with great pubs and cafes.
