Had to book accommodation in Donegal at the last minute a few weeks ago! Found Frewin House. Simply brilliant in every way! A truly wonderful welcome, tea & cookies in front of the fire, very comfortable bedroom (beautiful linen), pre dinner drinks, a dinner & breakfast fit for royalty - all provided by Regina & Thomas in a very unique...

8 of us stayed here on a saturday night for my wife's birthday. We took all the rooms in the main house & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The breakfast the following day was delicious & the perfect way to blow off the cobwebs from our night of celebration. Regina was friendly & a great cook. The grounds, building, cottage &... More

We stayed at Frewin House on our way from the Antrim Coast and Ballintoy to southern Donegal. Ramelton is a small and pretty "heritage" town and Frewin House was a charming and comfortable retreat for one night. Regina is a most gracious and welcoming hostess; she had cookies and tea ready for us in arrival; served a drink before dinner... More

This is the perfect base for touring northeastern Donegal - and near enough to Letterkenny town if all that nature starts too overwhelm! Regina and Thomas are the perfect hosts - helpful and interested without being intrusive - and their beautiful home is hard to leave…..

Myself and my husband stayed here for one night, the main house was booked out so we stayed in the cottage. It was charming, spotless clean & private and would be ideal for a couple with small kids in cots. It really was a private cottage in the middle of the woods and the service from Regina and her family... More

Old, world charm combined with such warm hospitality, set in the most peaceful of settings - perfect for those who appreciate 'standards'! No 5* hotel could compete with the atmosphere offered up by Frewin and the Coyles who own such a devine property.

If you have no other reason to visit this pretty little town in County Donegal...go to Frewin for the homemade bread.... Owner, hostess and sublime breadmaker, Regina Coyle also gives an easy and cheerful welcome. A former Victorian rectory turned family house, turned B&B it's a gentle stopover if you're touring one of Ireland's most beautiful counties. Dinner is optional,... More

We spent 3 nights here over Easter. Everything was wonderful. Frewin House is the consummate retreat; cosy rooms full of books and interesting old artefacts. Regina is the perfect hostess, helpful and welcoming but not intrusive. The bedroom was gorgeous and very comfortable. Breakfast was a beautiful spread of fresh fruit, home-made bread and jams, and food cooked to order.... More

We spent a wonderful night in serene surroundings at Frewin House. We were looking for a romantic, relaxing evening and that is what we got. Regina greeted us warmly and once we were shown our lovely bedroom we enjoyed afternoon tea in the library in front of a roaring fire. We were the only guests staying that night. In the... More
