Friendly hosts, a really nice clean room and a good breakfast. We felt welcomed at a good price. The b&b is just a couple of minutes away from town center and supermarket. Tip: go to the olde castle bar for tea.

We arrived at Island View House earlier than expected as my son caught a stomach bug & touring was out for the day. Michael was so kind in welcoming us on our early arrival and showing us our room. He also gave directions and suggestions for going into town and there were a number of brochures and such to check... More

We spend two nights at the Island View House and enjoyed our stay immensely! Bernadette and her husband run a very nice B&B and we enjoyed our visits with her. The rooms were very nice and spacious and the view is breathtaking!

We visited on a very warm day in Ireland and that made the night difficult. There was nothing to accommodate the heat (fans or the like) so we slept with the window open but that meant a lot of road noise. The hosts were friendly and helpful, the rooms clean but fairly dated and breakfast was very nice. We found... More

Friendly hosts, clean and lovely facilities, extremely cozy beds, delicious breakfast. Well worth the low price (98 euro for three people!). Only 1 km from Donegal and even closer to the arts and crafts village and a supermarket! We had a wonderful experience.

I stayed here with my husband while we were attending a wedding in a local hotel. Our room was clean, bright and modern. Our check in time was accommodated for and as we headed off on foot for the wedding reception we were offered a lift which was just so nice. Breakfast was also pretty good the following morning after... More

A nice quiet neighborhood within walking distance to town. A small grocery store was open in the evening so we could grab water and snacks for the next day. Great breakfast. Our room was very comfortable.

Beatrice was a lovely hostess and gave us good directions to places we wanted to visit. Our room was beautiful, clean, and very roomy, actually the same room I had last summer. The breakfast was absolutely perfect. I'm returning with my granddaughter next summer and hope to be able to stay here again. A car was needed to reach town... More

We stayed two nights at the Island View House, and found our bedroom to be quiet and clean. The view was lovely and the breakfasts were very good. The owners were very gracious. If you are going to Donegal Town, this B&B is very convenient to town.

I felt very fortunate to find such a lovely spot for my stay in beautiful Donegal. My room with private washroom was immaculate, with crisp, clean sheets on a very comfortable bed. The owners, Michael and Bernadette could not have been better hosts. Excellent breakfast, with delicious homemade scones. Great find. Lovely people. After hours of touring the gorgeous countryside,... More
