This is our favourite getaway. I couldn’t recommend Davey Johns Forge more! The location is beautiful, close to nearby towns for shops etc, lovely water side walks directly across the road. The cabins are so snug and cosy and Shane is such an attentive host. The cabin was spotless for us arriving, the hot tub on and heated. We brought our doberman with us and there was plenty of room for him too! We keep coming back and will continue to. It has such a homey feel. 11/10.

We had a lovely stay in Cabin 2 which is in a great location with a lovely hot tub. Lots of places to visit within a short or long drive, whatever suits.
The cabin is comfortable and furnished to a high spec-one of the nicest we’ve stayed in.
Lots of choice on tv and the blue tooth speaker was great to listen to our music while relaxing in the hot tub
Kitchen is well equipped, and although there are a few restaurants close by, we did use the air fryer a couple of times which was convenient.
Bed was comfy
Shower was always red hot
Shane is very helpful and kept in touch as and when we needed anything.
I would certainly recommend cabin which is located in a lovely part of the world.
Thank you, Shane.

We had the best stay in Shane’s cabin. We were given detailed descriptions on how to get checked in and what amenities there was. Place was spotless and felt right at home. Shane was extremely helpful and made sure we were happy with everything. The hot tub was the highlight of our stay. Highly recommended to anyone. Will be coming back again soon 🙂

Couldn’t recommend a stay here more. Myself, my fiancé and our little dog had a wonderful weekend stay a couple of weeks ago, in cabin 2. Our host Shane was great and provided excellent instructions for all of the facilities in the cabin. Beautiful cabin in a scenic location. Will definitely book another stay!

Really enjoyed our stay in Shane’s place. Really nice clean and modern cabin and the jacuzzi was the star of the show! Lot’s to do near by including hiking up Mount Errigal and lunch/brunch spots. Shane was a pleasure to deal with helping out with spots to visit. Highly recommend for a nice quiet break

We had a brilliant time staying with Shane at his luxury cabin. He is a gentleman and left us to our own to enjoy our break. We will definitely be returning to here as soon as possible.

Met both Shane and Kate during our stay. Very friendly and helpful. The booking process from start to finish was very easy and the host was always very responsive. The cabin itself was immaculate and homely. We stayed for two nights in cabin 2. Was perfect for a couples retreat. Private and romantic. The hot tub was spotless and a beautiful addition to our stay. It was a short drive to Carrigart and Downings, Where there were nice restaurants and a beautiful beach. Overall it made the perfect stay for just what we needed.

Our group travelled from Dublin to attend a dinner in The Olde Glen Bar. Shane’s cottage was the perfect stay in terms of location and the amount of people his cabin (6 people).

Shane sent us very detailed information in regards to check-in, how to use the entertainment system, heating, hot tub etc. My favourite part is the video tutorials he had ready for us. He was very responsive and friendly.

The all the amenities available worked and were in pristine condition. Every bed was very comfortable even the bunk beds! The cabin has extremely high quality cotton duvet covers. We were able to cook and enjoy a nice breakfast with the 7 ring gas stove (hence the late check out, sorry!)

I 100% recommend!

Shane was amazing at getting us girls sorted out! Couldn’t recommend anymore especially for a girls weekend! Plenty of towels and kitchen utensils for making food! Heating system within the house was amazing! Water was lovely and warm and stayed warm till all of us girls got showered! A short 10/15 mins drive from downings so handy enough to get a taxi in and out from the local town! Amazing couldn’t recommend anymore highly! Thank you for everything!

We are just home from our family stay at Davey John’s Cottage, we had a great time while there. Cottage was beautiful, all furnished with all we needed! The cinema room was a huge hit as was the hot tub! We had running hot water with in seconds of hitting the button 🙌🏻Close to Carrigart and 5mins drive from Downings. Shane had given us detailed instructions regarding our stay that we needed nothing throughout the week! Looking forward to next year already 🤞🎉
