We loved our stay at this property. It is a great base for exploration of Donegal, particularly Slieve League, Ardara and Glencolumbkille. The room was clean and somewhat modern/utilitarian but very comfortable. There is a common living room with a fireplace. What makes the property particularly special is the attentive service and excellent restaurant. Both dinner and breakfasts were memorable.... More

This is a guesthouse rather than a B&B. The rooms are in a building which is built for the purpose. The breakfast room is in a separate building and the family live in yet another building. The setting is rural, but is only 1.5 kms from the town. The room was spacious and the bathroom was adequate. However, there were... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for going to the trouble of posting a review. You are indeed right the shelves in the bathroom need replacement and are ordered and should be with us in the next week . We replace them every couple of years as with the steam from the bath and showers they dont last. The missing knob is... More

Theresa greeted us on arrival and was very gracious. She showed us to our room, which was lovely. We had made reservations for dinner in the dining room, and it was while we were in the lounge waiting for dinner that we met Sarah.

From the minute we walked in the door we knew we were going to have a great stay. Sarah welcomed us warmly, gave us a short tour of the bar and restaurant and then brought us to our room. The room was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. We had dinner which was delicious and the service, impeccable. After a... More

Theresa is very cordial and gracious! And the food was delicious! Bed was comfy and the room was a good size! Great value for what you get! Nice to take a walk after dinner to town to listen to live music! The breakfast was tasty - fresh fruit and granola along with some good Hot Irish fare!

We stayed athis guesthouse as we were attending a wedding nearby. Everything about the guesthouse was excellent. The staff very polite and so helpful nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast was as good as you would get in any top hotel. I would definitely stay again and would recommend.

We stayed for one night and had a great time as we had the last time there. Everything was excellent from the most comfy bed to the lovely evening meal( complements to the chef). Theresa and all who work there go that extra mile to ensure your stay is a good one. Can't recommend this guesthouse enough.

My partner and I went for a weekend and had a wonderful two nights. The service was second to none. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was amazing! We have stayed in five star hotels that didn't offer as good of service. Really lovely staff, professional and friendly. Will be back!
