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

I stayed here in this B&B for two successive nights with a colleague of mine. It was a random choice on our part but we were happy to have knocked on their door late one evening. It's situated just outside the town in a beautiful part of the world on the road North, is very clean and the lady in... More

Many times I have passed by this Family run establishment without staying there so I decided to give it a try. We were greeted with that overwhelming and traditional Donegal Welcome that has by now, become rather famous from this part of Ireland. First impressions are, the cleanliness and tidiness of the complete premises with absolutely nothing out of place... More

This was ideal stop on our end to end Ireland cycle in the midst of a heatwave. Sheila the host made the stay - very warm welcome, seemed genuinely interested in people. Many repeat visitors and not surprised. We had a room towards rear of house away from main road. Important for this evening as needed all windows open. The... More

Had a great stay. Cozy rooms, super breakfast and Sile is a fantastic host. Was not my first stay and it will be not my last. Close to town and the great North.

This is one of the best B&B we have stayed in to date. We arrived late on a Friday evening, but our host greeted us warmly. The rooms were big, comfy, and warm.
