"Amazing stay"

Absolutely gorgeous house we stayed in. I believe it's a church conversion. Stunning property with so much beautiful fields and trees surrounding the place. The kitchen in the house is large and the number of bedrooms more than catered for our group of eight. Loads of parking and dog friendly. Loved staying there. It's my sister and her family's third time there. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

"Great place"
My wife and I stayed in the converted chapel last week, it was perfect for us in every way, we really enjoyed our break there.
Not to far from Ballyshannon, Donegal and Sligo, lovely countryside on the doorstep.
Our hosts were very friendly, cheerful and most helpful.
Our two little dogs loved the wide open space that the property is set in, safe for them to wander around in, enjoying some time with Jinky the friendly resident retreaver.
I would recommend this lovely place to anyone that is looking for a holiday in Ireland.
Thank you all at Cavan Garden for a great stay.

"Perfect Family Holiday"
Second time going to the self catering lodges.
And again another amazing relaxing holiday had by the entire family.
They are a hidden gem away from it all and I would recommend it to any family with young children looking a break to unwind and relax with all the modcons of home.
Many thanks to Chris for everything especially the amazingly kind gesture at the start of the week

"Super accommodation especially “dog friendly”
We had a super three night break with our two Westies who settled in very quickly after a warm welcome by Christopher and his sister and the resident dog Tinky who visited us regularly - lots of homely space within the accommodation and within the acreage of Cavangarden House. Very secure and acccesible to all towns; attractions and road routes. Lovely tranquil setting and perfect for dog walking and “hanging out” on the lawns with a ball. We hope to return again

Spent a week in this charming property, in one of four houses set in stunning grounds.
We had a great family holiday with our dog enjoying the space and walks around the property.
House was excellent, clean and spacious.Owners were friendly and looked after us very well.
Property is situated 10 minutes from, Rossnowlagh, Bundoran,and 5 minutes from Ballyshannon.
Will definitely return.

"Charming period property"
We stayed in the end house of the chapel conversion as a party of 5. The family who run this are lovely and friendly. The house is set in a large beef farm, and we were able to go for walks on the land, dotted with streams and bridges. The house was cosy and comfortable, with everything we would need. The WiFi signal was excellent. We will miss Jinksy and Bobo (the resident dogs)
