We arrived at the Railway Lodge very late in the day having mixed up our accommodation booking. Our hostel was another 1.5 hours from Donegal, it was late and we had been severly delayed due to a car accident. The room was clean and well equipped and breakfast was a delicious feast. Sheila took the time to help us cancel... More

We were attending a wedding in the Central Hotel, Donegal Town and chose this guest house for its location. It was only 2-3 minutes walk from the hotel which is located in the Diamond Square. No need for taxis or lifts. Friendly hosts and full Irish the following morning - could not have been better. Would highly recommend.

How fortunate we were to have had to book this place at the last minute due to problems at another property. Sheila couldn't have been more accommodating and gracious. The location is excellent..walk to everywhere. Breakfast was delicious. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We only stayed one night but this would be an excellent place to stay for multiple nights...

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
