customer reviews for NEW Drumskinny Farm

Utterly idyllic rural retreat. Exquisite restoration, obviously a labor of love for its owners, elegantly appointed, cooks kitchen, natural stone, wood, pot bellied stoves, radiant heating throughout, beautiful fresh linens, immaculately clean, laundry room, wi-fi included. Comes replete with a woodpecker and a herd of sheep who may occasionally visit. My only regret was not staying longer. Our hosts Sam and Hazel were never more than a text away and generous with their local knowledge. Just be sure to have a well charged phone and roaming data plan - you'll need GPS to navigate but as long as you aim for Kesh, Drumskinny and find' Monaghans of the Cross' you'll find it - keep the bar behind you and aim down Movarran Rd for 1.5 miles you can't miss the bright red orange gate. I would return in a heart beat! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! Warmest regards, Hazel Jane

We stayed at Drumskinny Farm for four nights and enjoyed and appreciated the comforts of this converted farm: see the original type of vernacular building just down the road with whitewashed walls and red roof. Underfloor heating and wood burning stoves made this eco building very warm and welcoming.The soft grey interior, well fitted kitchen and bathroom with large shower as well as bath, the views across the fields to woods and mountains were all appreciated by us as was the very useful welcome pack. I loved the little touches such as the delicately embroidered Irish linen blind in the bathroom. The nearest pub was five minutes away, Drummoney Falls was 10 m inutes away and Enniskillen, the county town was within half an hour and offered a high street of good shops and a craft centre.Touring Lower Lough Erne was a very good way to spend a day, as was a visit to the Giant's Causeway and Derry, Florence Court, Castle Coole and Mount Stewart. Definitely another lovely UTT place to stay.

The photos do not do justice to Drumskinny Farmhouse. Beautifully restored with great attention to detail and good eco credentials. It is quite remote (yet has excellent Wifi, better than I have in city !) but is within a drive of great walking territory. Love the way you can meander between Republic and UK. In fact the local town is split between UK/Ireland with different currencies etc.on each side of the bridge.

Brilliant holiday discovering Ireland, both Northern and the Republic - the cottage is perfectly placed to do both, in fact the border weaves back and forth the whole time! Highlights were the Ulster American Folk Museum, Marble Arch Geopark and all the incredible forest walks around Lough Erne. And a lovely little cottage to come back to each evening!

Drumskiiny Farm is a lovely and very well equiped small farmhouse in a rural location. Its been very nicely finished with a minimal but classy feel. Lots of period touches for a most comfortable but simple authenic feel. Lots of heating with three woodburners and underfloor heating. Loved it and can thoroughly recommend it. Plenty to see and do within driving distance.

5 Star Quality Luxury Farmhouse in a very quiet remote location, yet able to use as base for exploring County Fermanagh and County Donegal, Lovely Beaches within a short drive.
