Terrific holiday
This is the most well equipped, lovely chalet we?ve been to. Child and dog friendly. A real home from home. Cosy and set in a gorgeous location. Stone throw from a beautiful beach. Kitted out with everything you could need. Thistle Dubh is a real find and we will definitely be coming back. We would highly recommend. Truly five star! (2 adult 2 young children 5 and 5).

I couldn't of dreamt of a more perfect getaway
Being a busy mother of two, I was scrolling the internet looking for a place to hide away for a week, seeking peace and quiet to finish my studies. I couldn't have dreamt of a better place to go. Being on my own, i felt completely safe in the lodge and enjoyed some beautiful walks to the nearby beach. I spent most of my days in the lodge and occasionally ate at the site restaurant - I couldn't have felt more comfortable. From the beautiful white linen bedsheets and towels, to the thoughtful collective of books and DVDS, to the extensive cooking equipment and gorgeous candles, I felt truly at home. Thank you for such a meaningful and wonderful stay - the owners have really made the effort to make Thistle Dubh feel like a home away from home

A very relaxing holiday and a fantastic property to chill out on the balcony with a glass of wine.

Everything about the lodge was of the highest standard. It was impeccably furnished but also very homely. The site itself was very well maintained and quiet. There was lots to do in the surrounding area too. We would highly recommend this lodge.
