Hidden Gem is one of the best AirBnBs I've ever stayed at. The hosts go above and beyond. Highly recommend their place to anyone looking to stay in the region.Quotes

The host made it easy for us to arrive at our convenience. The property is truly a gem. The bed was so comfortable and everything is top notch. On a clear night look up at the stars it is so beautiful. When we arrived, there was a lovely carrot cake for us and a personal welcome message on the chalkboard. There is a manual which was so helpful with house and location information. The host stopped by and helped us with directions to get back to the airport and looked into road closings. You cannot go wrong with this choice.Quotes

Highly recommend Hidden Gem to anyone looking to relax and take in some scenery. It's an incredibly fun living space with the bar and pool table but a little bit of luxury with the beautiful bathroom. Provisions for tea and coffee were fab, and a gorgeous carrot cake left for us. Plus a selection of sweets to raid. Free wifi makes up for the poor phone signal in the area, we were late to arrive but our host was very friendly and our welcome was very personalised and warm. Bedding super comfy too. Loved every minute, thank you so muchQuotes

Pour résumer : un petit coin de paradis ! Des hotes agréables, un gite de rêve (très grand lit, baignoire immense, billard, bar ...), une vue sur le lac apaisante et magnifique, des ballades superbes (n'hésitez pas à faire un tour du coté de Maghery, les paysages sont à couper le souffle), et le petit plus pour nous, un gite completement équipé pour notre enfant de 1 an (lit, chaise haute, jouets, baignoire pour bébé, transat ...). Bref, on a adoréQuotes

We had an fantastic time in an amazing apartment. We were made very welcome on our arrival & they even provided toys for my kids to play with. High chair & travel cot were set up for us. Could not recommended this apartment enough to everyone looking a peaceful stay in a beautiful setting. We will definitely be back again.Quotes

The chalkboard had "Welcome Sean" and there were provisions for a nice post-drive cup of tea. The apartment is quiet, out of the way, but easy to find. I found it easy to get around Donegal from here and was able to relax in the comfortable surrounds with a book. Highly recommended.Quotes

We stayed at Hidden Gem four nights and left there almost two weeks ago but still talk about our experience daily. I doubt we will ever again sleep in more comfortable beds or enjoy such a luxurious bathroom. The flat is incredibly spacious, the view is wonderful and the furniture comfortable. The walk we took the first night remains the most magical experience of this long trip. The area is hauntingly beautiful. We're already trying to figure out when we can return. Hidden Gem sets a high standard, one the luxury hotel where we had to stay to attend a wedding didn't come close to matching.

We stayed one week with our 2-years old daughter in Hidden Gem Donegal. We had everything we needed to spend great time and it is very well located to visit Donegal. Many information are provided to visit the area.

We absolutely loved our stay in Hidden Gem. The apartment is spacious, spotless and very well equipped. The view out the front door is fantastic and the recommended beach walk didn't disappoint. The host kept in touch throughout and was available if we had needed any help. Can't wait to come back and spend more time in the area!

Excellent location in a very comfortable apartment, greeted by host and she showed us where everything was. View was superb as were the facilities, the ideal place to get away from it all, just remember to take the directions with you as some of the locals in Burtonport couldn't direct us to the place enjoyed the carrot cake, the facilities, the peace and the walks.

I loved Hidden Gem - such a wonderful spot. Great facilities - top class - and really friendly hosts. The local area is breathtaking and well hidden giving you the feeling of being part of small group of lucky people to discover it! The host really couldn't do enough for us - even when I enquired about a coffee pot, a coffee maker and coffee appeared within a couple of hours! I'll be back

Hidden Gem is a very apt name for a very beautiful place to stay. Views are outstanding as always in Donegal. The accommodation is spotless , very comfortable beds and that bath is just luxury. The host was so welcoming nothing was a bother at all. The pool table was great to keep our boys entertained and the bar a great touch. Cant wait to get back

Hidden Gem was exactly that! A beautiful home, could not recommend this enough- everything was pristine. The pictures do not do it justice & our host was available to answer any questions. Thanks so much, my friends and I (6 of us altogether- with ample space) had a really good time.

Our stay at Hidden Gem Donegal was brilliant from arrival to departure. The accommodation was amazing, from the bar to the bedrooms, the attention to detail was first class. Our reason for visiting was to discover the countryside and sights, we weren't disappointed. On our first day we hiked to the top of Mount Errigal, the views were breath taking, We ate in The Lobster Pot, the food was beautiful and would recommend it. We also took a ferry to Arranmore Island which was a beautiful day out. Glenveagh National Park is about a 40 minute drive away and has a castle, lakes and garden walks, you could spend a couple of days walking around it. Hidden Gem has a beautiful lake on the doorstep with ducks and other wildlife, there is also a beach a short walk away, we had a lovely break, I will hopefully be back again as there was so much more to discover around the area.

Our experience at Hidden Gem was majestic. Its a quiet little hideaway. Our host was helpful and super organized. We hope to visit again someday.

The house in Burtonport was spectacular. In a beautiful remote location, five minutes walk from a isolated beach and a lovely 5k walk surrounding the house, the area was fantastic. The house, directly attached to the owner?s house (but completely separate) is all on one floor. The sitting room boasts a bar (which you can fill yourself) and a pool table. There is also a little hob and oven if you so wish to use it. The bathroom is spectacular. Very spacious and the bath is huge. So lovely. The bedrooms are also fantastic. Very comfy bed and very large. Telephone reception is very poor due to the location, however, internet is provided so that sorts out the issue largely. We had a wonderful time in Burtonport and it is well worth the visit.

Highly recommend this beautiful and private ground apartment/suite near Burtonport. The house and surroundings are amazing - I loved it so much, I stayed an extra day. The beaches and rocky coastal areas are so scenic, and both owners are warm, friendly, and helpful hosts. Comfortable bed, everything you could possibly need is provided, and it is spotlessly clean. I couldn't have wished for more!

Hidden gem is truly that! We were looking for a quiet, homely place for our first family getaway and hidden gem delivered in abundance! They supplied all we could need (and more) for our 6 month old and we had the most fabulous stay here - we wished we could have stayed longer! The apartment is so well equipped and the personal touches such as the welcome basket, are a lovely thought. The location is a little remote but this adds to the charm and you will never get tired looking at the view! There is so much to explore in the local area. We would definitely come back and we have recommended it to anyone who asked how our trip was. Is this the right place for you then all you need to ask yourself is: Do you want a luxurious stay away from home? A getaway with an amazing view? An area with loads to see? A host who has thought of everything? If you answer yes, you have found your place to stay and I guarantee you will leave a bit of your heart behind in Donegal

We spent an amazing 2 days at Hidden Gem Donegal. The accommodation is superb....luxurious bedrooms and bathroom and a really cool living area with pool table, bar and a fully equipped kitchen. The gorgeous lake in the front garden was only beaten by the stunning unspoiled beaches a ten minute walk away (would really recommend doing this). The host is lovely and very kindly met us at the main road to show us the way and had scones and cookies waiting for us after our drive from Dublin. Will definitely stay again!!!!

Amazing weekend in gorgeous Donegal

An amazing place to have a rest, relax and enjoy the west end of Ireland. We were so kindly hosted by MF and she organise everything to make us feel confortable and happy. The appartement is very cosy and we felt really like at home. Special mention to the huge terrific bed, the bath tub and the bar. Highly recommended and would come back with pleasure !

An amazing host; the apartment is gorgeously furnished and decked out with all of the amenities you could possibly imagine. I had probably the best bath of my life in her jacuzzi and then played around on the piano for work. Burtonport is a remote little town that not even natives seemed to know about, but I highly recommend it; it's beautiful and remote, with nice and easily accessible beaches. Even in April on a rainy day it was divine; I went for a 4 mile walk before I even knew the time had gone. The host picked me up at the bus station and was even available to drop me back off very early in the morning; not only that, but she took me into town to see dancing on one evening! Can't recommend Hidden Gem enough; a true Irish town, true Irish hospitality, and an absolutely amazing bath. What can be better than that!

To all of you who think about renting this place: you should absoultely do it! We had a lovely time there and the cottage was simply breathtaking. The host's are lovely people, helping us out when we got lost while looking for the cottage. Thank you very much again for these gorgeous 4 days!

We stayed in this fabulous, spacious apartment with our two young children and thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment is very comfortable and the location is beautiful, set right on the sea surrounded by quiet countryside. The owners are very friendly and helpful with great knowledge of the surrounding area. We hope to visit again soon.



I have stayed with my husband in this luxurious accommodation The four poster bed is magnificent and the bathroom is so beautiful like an Italian spa and so spacious .The views all around are spectacular.We are looking forward to visiting Hidden Gem Donegal soon again Its definitely a hidden gem with a 5 star rating.
