I stayed here for a week while on an Irish language course. This property was booked for me by the school when I requested a B&B placement upon registering. BOTTOM LINE: A great option whether you’re in the area for Gaelic classes or other reasons. The house is very nice and the proprietors are happy to talk to you in... More

A superb one night stay in this cosy B&B. Rooms are very comfortable and clean and the breakfast was one fit for a king! Freshly baked scones and brown bread and a full Irish breakfast! The host (Margaret) was extremely friendly and would get you anything you needed. She also organised a lift for us to the local pub. Overall,... More

I' ve stayed here for only two nights and felt very welcome the moment I arrived. This place is perfect: friendly helpful hosts, cosy room and filling breakfast, wonderful surroundings for walking and enjoying mighty Donegal. Thanks for a great time.

At the end of a great day touring, we found this B & B which was just a stone's throw from the village where we enjoyed visiting with locals at the Glenhead Pub. We had a private room with an ensuite and a key, but we really enjoyed the interaction with the owners. They were very kind and welcoming and... More

I was at Oideas Gael for the bank holiday weekend doing a flute workshop and stayed here and it was fabulous. From a fabulous breakfast in the mornings, to evening chats with Margaret and a lovely friendly atmosphere in he communal kitchen and living room. I couldn't recommend them more, its nice escaping from the real world for a little... More

We stayed two nights at Teach Gleann Dobhar last June. We got to stay in the house next door, which the family owns as well. While the room lacked a little charm, it was very comfortable (no wifi, though, which is only available in the main house). But Martin was very friendly and helpful, and every morning we started our... More

I stayed at Teach Gleann Dobhar for a week when I attended an Irish course in Glean Cholm Cille. It was the best choice! Margaret and her family are very welcoming people and made us feel at home. They also helped with our Irish! The house is really cosy and we got served a wonderful breakfast everyday. Margaret is always... More

Add at least two nights to your palns to stay here. Glencholmcille is a peaceful, subtle place that probably takes years to uncover, so give yourself at least a week here to settle in and scratch the surface. Gleann Dobhar is a perfect place to stay--Martin and Margaret are friendly and keep a good house with good food and good... More

B&Bs have become more and more like small-sized hotels. At Gleann Dobhan you will find the real experience of a B&B "just like the ones I used to know": you will get into the house of a real family, with smiling children running up and down the stairs, sounds of crockery from the kitchen, and photos everywhere. I liked our... More
