Joanie is an absolutely lovely woman and a perfect B&B host. I felt right at home with her and know if I lived there, we would be fabulous friends. We didn't want to eat out so we cooked up some things we had bought earlier in her kitchen which she kindly made available to us and ate out front at... More

The room was spacious and had a magnificent view. it was also great to be able to cook a meal in the kitchen.The location was absolutely magical, the cliffs were out of this world and there are many other places to explore.

This place was wonderful. The views are amazing and the couple that runs it are fantastic! Probably the most comfortable bed we slept on the whole time we were in Ireland. It made an excellent base for exploring Donegal and we ended up staying one more night than we originally intended.

On a tour of Ulster this summer, our stay at Kilcar was by far the best part for me. Better than the giants causeway or the rope bridge at carrick-a-rede were the stunning views at Slieve League, the highest sea cliffs in Europe. I was told about Slieve League by a local man Gerry Lyons who, together with his wife... More

The view from my bedroom window was the best of all the places I stayed in Ireland - straight out over the bay, about 100ft up! Joanie and Jerry were very friendly and helpful. Bedroom and facilities were not fancy but clean and comfortable. There is a fully equipped kitchen and dining room should you want to prepare your own... More

One of my most favorite souvenirs of visiting Donegal this past summer was staying with Joannie and Gerry Lyons at their most welcoming B &B in Kilcar. The view from my room on the third floor was magnificent...one minute it was raining,the next minute the sun came out and there was a double rainbow over the landscape. My room was... More

My family and I have stayed here many times over the years whilst visiting family in the area. This place is always wonderful with great warm Irish hospitality at it's best. Wonderful view which can't be beaten. Good hearty breakfast, clean rooms with lots of beds! Ample kitchen facilities. Always a pleasure to stay here. Thanks Joanie! x

We enjoyed our stay at the Dun Ulun House in Kilcar. The best thing about this B&B is the amazing views of the mountains from the windows. Our room and bathroom were clean and nice, the owners were kind, and the breakfast was very tasty. The accommodations are basic but sufficient--hallways are a bit dark and the place hasn't been...
