Recently stayed at the Gap Lodge in Donegal with a friend and loved it! The hosts are welcoming, breakfast was great, and the B&B has a very homey vibe. Sile was able to offer great advice for the area as well! The B&B is located a little ways (5-10 min depending on your Irish driving skills) from 'Downtown' Donegal, very... More

We only stayed one night at the Gap Lodge but it was excellent....a great location just outside of Donegal in a quiet country setting. The room was good sized for the three of us and there was lots of parking on site. The place is very clean and has a nice sitting room at the front. The breakfast was excellent... More

We stayed here with our two kids, ages 9 and 12. We had a family room and fit just fine. The property is nicely decorated and very clean. It was built with the B&B in mind which often makes for a more convenient set up. The owner was very friendly and the breakfast was wonderful. It is a short drive... More

Sile was very nice and served personalized breakfast. Nothing else right nearby, so you must drive somewhere to get dinner. Short drive into Donegal though, and castle is right there. Sile recommended a pub, and food and drinks were good.

Three older ladies shared a very nice room. Cila (Sheila) was a very kind gracious and helpful hostess. The Lodge is located a few miles north of Donegal City, on the main highway, no problem to find. It is a super area to explore, started with lunch in Mount Charles then exploring the peninsula out from Donegal all the way... More

This B&B is situated before you enter Donegal Town. It is in a very quite and nice location. The owner greeted us with chocolates, tea and coffee in our rooms even though we arrived late at around 11pm on a Friday evening. The room was very clean, spacious and also contained an electric blanket. The breakfast the next day was... More

What an awesome B & B!!! It's a super convenient location with beautiful surroundings. Shiela (totally misspelled, sorry), the owner, is so sweet and helpful. The breakfast was delicious, the wifi worked great, and the bathroom was a decent size which I found was not always the case in Ireland. Our room was on the ground floor which was great... More

Very friendly welcome, the house was spotlessly clean throughout. I can also have no problem recommending the excellent breakfast menu. As a person that usually does not take the usual traditional Irish breakfast I had plenty choice. The porridge was first class, and I can also recommend the scrambled egg with smoked salmon. On both of my nights here I... More
