Driving every day in the Irish countryside is both beautiful and stressful. Finding this guesthouse was the best thing for us. It was a beautiful farm-like setting. Our room was large, and very comfortable. We sat in the common room, started a fire in the fireplace, and regrouped for our next few days. The dining room for breakfast was warm... More

Nine of us arriving late after van trouble the owner and staff were very welcoming and friendly. A cosy bar area and great menu choice. The food was delicious. We stayed 2 nights and ate in both days. Beautiful views of country landscapes and the town, which was a short to moderate walk away.

a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. 15mins walk (10 if you 'step out') from town, but lots of walks round about. The food was wonderful - the 'chef's surprises' were a bonus! one of those very rare hotels which you leave by giving the staff a hug We hope Sarah's wedding goes well

I cannot say enough good things about Theresa, her husband and the staff here. They love what they do, work hard, and it shows. We stayed 2 nights, 2 rooms. Theresa was a wealth of information about the area and people in the town. We expected it to be in the middle of nowhere. Instead, it is close to a... More

We stayed for 2 nights and ate in the restaurant on both evenings. We had a friendly reception and a great room. Dinners were both good and breakfast had everything you would need. Overall a very satisfactory experience and one we would be happy to repeat. Highly recommended.

We had a great stay here, even thought it was only for one night. From welcome to departure everything was first rate. The accommodation was quiet and comfortable and breakfast was the best of our 8 mornings in Ireland (from Moville to Galway). Its far enough out of town to be peaceful, but near enough to walk in without too... More

We stayed at Ard Na Breatha for one night and were completely delighted with everything about the place. From the welcome we received until we got into our car on the following day, our experience was totally positive.

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
