Theresa was helpful and friendly. Good facilities right at edge of town with beautiful countryside for miles just behind the inn, but a 2 minute drive to downtown or a manageable walk. Nice common room.

Ar na Breatha Guesthouse was our favorite B&B in Ireland. Our rooms were inviting and cheery. Our family of five enjoyed a gourmet dinner in the Ar na Breatha dining room. Everyone loved their meal and the hospitality was perfect!

Though not the easiest to find given Ireland's historically poor road signage, it is totally worth the adventure. It's nestled amongst a few sheep pastures, which you do Not smell. The staff were extremely helpful and informative. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The price was very reasonable for this area of Ireland. They have a cozy little meeting... More

This guesthouse is situated on the outskirts of Donegal therefor more suitable for car passengers. As we were travelling by car we appreciated the ample car park as well as the quiet location. Within a few minutes you can ride, bike or hike Lough Eske and the Bluestack Mountains. Donegal is a beautiful town, there are hundreds of atlantic beaches... More
