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

We arrived in Donegal Town with no room reservation, so we stopped at the tourist information center to check on B&B availability. One of the B&Bs we were directed to was Island View House, where we were met at the door by Bernadette and warmly welcomed. The room was spotless and breakfast the next morning was excellent (we quickly became... More

This place is a bit out of town (not ideal if you don't have a car) set in a nice yard with good views out over the water. We were given one of the big front rooms with views and they were pretty impressive. Large room with a desk and heated blankets on the bed (which my wife couldn't get... More
