Very nice and clean place in the outskirts of Donegal. Very friendly hosts, they offered us a very warm welcome. Rooms were well equipped and cosy. Good breakfast, best potato break we had on our whole trip!

Absolutely amazing B & B very welcoming with a lovely view as soon as you come out the front door and spotlessly clean and immaculate throughout. Very quiet and peaceful with a very short drive to Donegal centre. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Incredibly easy to find if travelling on the Wild Atlantic Way. Directions are to the point and easy to follow. Great location - close to the Donegal Castle and Slieve League (which is breathtaking once you reach the top! and, our favourite attraction in Donegal) Welcoming and friendly service upon arrival - our visit was like being with family. Clean... More

While on our two week vacation to Ireland from the States, we stayed in seven different hotels and B&Bs. The Cove Lodge was totally our favorite. Our room was very clean and the space immediately made us feel relaxed and at home. The family was wonderful, attentive to our questions and helping us plan our day trips. It was a... More

My wife and I stayed here on our first two nights in Ireland. The rooms are somewhat compact, but very clean, tastefully decorated and well maintained. The owners are very gracious and friendly, breakfasts were excellent, the atmosphere was very relaxing. A great value and a wonderful place to stay.

Situated just a short drive into Donegal Town, this family run B&B makes you feel right at home. Rooms are on the small side but certainly big enough and very clean and there is a living room for guests to hang out in. The hosts are friendly and very helpful in suggesting places to eat or special places to go... More

We arrived before supper, Liam greeted us showed us our room and gave some recommendations on where to eat supper. The next day we were trying to find something easy with not much walking, Liam pulled out a map and outlined a nice scenic drive with little to no walking. The internet would cut in and out however all we... More
