Room was neat and clean. Liam, the owner,seemed a bit harried and was anxious for us to pick a time for breakfast the next morning. Apparently they had a full house needed to schedule and rotate the guests. All this was curious as when we arrived at the appointed time in the morning there was one other couple and 6... More

Donegal is spectacular....and so is this bed and breakfast. The hosts were just wonderful---very kind about letting us check in a little later than usual. Our room was beautiful, nicely appointed, comfortable and quiet. And the food delicious. Joan and Liam gave us PERFECT suggestions for local fun, both touring and places to eat. We could not have liked this... More

This place was beautiful. The hosts were welcoming and recommended some travels ideas that we had not planned on. I would stay again and recommend this place to anyone traveling in that part of the country.

Our first visit to Ireland and our first experience in an Irish B&B could not have been better. Joan made us feel right at home. The rooms were comfortable,clean and beautifully furnished. Enjoyed the comfortable living [reading] room and the breakfasts were delicious. Hope to return and stay at Cove Lodge again soon!!

Arrived at Dublin airport at 4:30 am and drove four hours to Donegal in the dark and pouring rain! As well as on the wrong side of the road for us!! We were too early to check in so we went into town for breakfast. Joan very kindly let us check in early and we slept for three hours! Joan's... More

...that's the Cove Lodge. Liam and Joan are gracious hosts and have a lovely B&B. Clean, modern, well appointed rooms. The quiet and inviting reading room was enjoyed also. Morning meals offer a wonderful choice between full Irish and fresh fruit, cereal, and yogurts. Just a few minutes east of Donegal Town and great setting beside the bay. We would... More

The Cove Lodge couldn't be any better. It has it all. Nice, peaceful, quiet, and beautiful setting. Loved to sit at the breakfast table view the lake and the sheep grazing with classical music in the background. It was less than a 5 minute drive to Donegal town with lots of shopping, restaurants, and music. Joan and Liam were exceptional... More

We had a wonderful time enjoying the superb accommodations and warm hospitality of Joan and Liam at the Cove Lodge B&B. They really helped us enjoy the beauty of Donegal. Joan gave us wonderful suggestions to visit Glenveagh Castle and Slieve League. Richard and Sharon

After a very long day of traveling , we were grateful to arrive in Donegal town where we had reservations at Cove Lodge! It was dark, we were not familiar with Donegal Town and our GPS did not help! We called Cove Lodge and Liam immediately said he and Joan were 'worrying' about us and 'talked' us through directions to... More
