The hostess here was phenom, very helpful. The room was beautiful, the breakfasts were delish. You're pratically next door to Donegal Castle, a short walk to the town square and just enough set away to be quiet at night. (except Saturdays, which were a bit rowdy after the pub crawelers make their way home, lol.) Just a wonerful place to... More

Booked to stay here as was attending a wedding nearby at a much more expensive hotel. Booking process was very easy online and just needed a credit card to secure the booking. Upon arrival we were cheerily greeted by the owner and shown to the room, asked if we were attending a wedding nearby (apparently that is most of her... More

Very nice B&B, within walking distance to the main street, this B&B met all our needs. Very clean and en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was great with wonderful conversation. We were a last minute guest and they were very accommodating.

For the price you pay, this is a great find. The hostess could not do enough to please you. The breakfast is fine; the room was large and clean and all within 3 minutes walk of downtown Donegal Town, However, If you insist on an upscale, trendy B&B you might search elsewhere

Visited Scotland and Ireland on a 17 day trip, stayed in several b&bs, but this one is the one where I had the best experience. The room was huge, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious and they accommodate to what you want and like. Location is perfect, just a stroll from downtown, where there are several pubs, restaurants... More
