This was a beautiful home, very clean, close to town! The house overlooks the Eske river and is very peaceful. also had the best breakfast in our 10 day stay in Ireland. Liam made recommendations of local sites to see. The best B & B we stayed in during our driving trip across country!

The four of us had a bad experience in Bundoran and decided to up sticks and see what Donegal had to offer. We turned left towards the town and there was Cove Lodge, we said that looks good lets give it a go! We couldn't have made a better choice. Jane and her lovely family made us feel so welcome... More

This was a really lovely place to stay, with great views down the bay, and very easy to find. Near to Donegal for food too. Liam and his wife Joan were very welcoming and the room we had was spotlessly clean. They were very helpful giving us maps and directions to places of interest on the coast nearby. Breakfasts were...

The rooms were a bit small but everything but it was beautifuly decorated. The breakfast was delicous as well. While checking out Liam gave me... More

Spotlessly clean, quiet room, excellent breakfast. A five minute drive into town makes this a great place to base your stay in Donegal. The rooms are a little small but the attention to detail and quality more than make up for this.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cove Lodge. It is ideally located to visit Donegal town, and the rooms were lovely and very clean - and Liam was very kind in offering plenty of excellent tips for great trips around the county. And breakfast was excellent! This is certainly where we'll stay next time we visit Donegal.

Liam gave us some good tips for travelling a pretty route via Slieve League to Glenveagh National Park. Stunning scenery! Thanks Liam and Joan for... More

Everything was perfect! The room was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was gorgeous and beautifully presented, the hosts were adorable, very warm and willing to help! By far the best B&B we've had during our trip in Ireland! The position was also amazing, not far from breathtaking cliffs! A wonderful stay!
