About Colette Hall
We live in Belfast, 125 miles east of our holiday home.
Colette Hall purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Colette Hall chose Crowkeeragh
We loved this house at first sight. It is a typical Irish cottage, stone built, at least 150 years old. It can be traced in Griffith's Valuation, a book which was prepared in 1854. We love the area, which is off the usual tourist trail and as close to the 'real' Ireland as you are likely to get. There is no TV or phone reception. It's a chance to kick back and relax away from the world.
What makes this Cottage unique

Slice of Irish life
Such a sweet cottage in a beautiful setting. We all loved staying.
Scenic country cottage
Stunning view from the front of the cottage. Delightful seating area with a working fireplace, comfortable beds. One shower didn’t work, but there was another one that worked fine. Could have used instructions on how to use the appliances.
Thank you so much for your kind review. I’m so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The views from the cottage are indeed stunning!
For the benefit of future guests, hot water for one of the showers is provided by the central heating system. The guests did not need to run the heating system due to the beautiful weather they enjoyed during their stay!
Appliance manuals have now been stored in a more accessible place.
Perfect Irish Vacation
The cottage was wonderful. Perfect accommodations for 2 couples or small family with children. Great base of operations from which to tour Donegal. Collette (owner) was very, very responsive to any questions we had. Location at top of Glengesh Pass was awesome. We would go again.
The cottage is as per pictures...very sweet and homely. Beds are comfortable and linen was plentiful
Previous occupants had left any leftover supplies so anything you may have forgotten to bring could be there. Plenty of books,music,dvds etc. If it's remoteness you seek you'll find it here.
Ardara's stores will supply all fire needs as well as groceries...Nancy's serves the very best Guinness I've EVER tasted..That's going some!
All in all a great holiday.
Thank you so much for your kind review.
To clarify for future guests, the supplies at the cottage, which include a selection of teas, coffee, sugar, condiments and oils are provided by the owner for the convenience of guests, also starter fuel for the fire, liquid handwash, dishwasher tablets, laundry supplies etc.
And yes, Nancy’s Bar does indeed serve great Guinness!
The cottage was everything it said it would be and more. We wanted peace and quiet and we certainly got it and never wanted for anything as all was provided. Great location to explore the surrounding area. I can't recommend it highly enough.
