Food cooked well, not greasy and plenty of it. Fabulous view, what more can anyone want? Weather? Sorry but no guarantees there but we were lucky and had really quite good weather,... More

My husband and I enjoyed our 2 night stay very much. We had a large, lovely and bright room with a nice sized ensuite, and a view out to the bay just as the name suggests! The room decor is very up to date, and the house is immaculate and well maintained. We enjoyed the use of a spacious guest... More

Four of us stayed here recently. It's a kilometre or so from Ardara. This is a large modern B&B on a scenic site with ample parking. We were greeted with tea and scones in the sitting room. The spotless rooms were amongst the biggest and best we've seen in Ireland, with quality fittings and huge wardrobe space. The ensuites have... More

My mom and I stayed at the Bayview Country House on our recent trip to County Donegal, Ireland. This B&B is literally just a 2 or 3 minute drive from the center of Ardara, and is easy to find with GPS or directions from Marion Bennett, the owner. Marian was an absolutely lovely hostess. She gave us recommendations for a... More

My husband and I spend five lovely days with Marion Bennett. Her breakfast were wonderfully tasty. The room was large, the beds comfortable, the view amazing. One rainy afternoon we arrived back after touring and she had a fire going and tea to warm us. I spent the rest of the day snuggled with a good book in front of... More

This was a very clean, very nice bed and breakfast. We stayed two nights. The food in the morning was excellent. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds had very nice linens. Downstairs there was a very large sitting.living room with a fireplace, and multiple couches and chairs, for relaxing. I highly recommend Marian's bed and breakfast.

My wife and I stayed at Bayview Country House for five nights and had a thoroughly satisfying experience. We were given our choice of the beautiful rooms. The service was first-rate with delicious food, delivered graciously and punctually. We attended the Johnny Doherty Fiddle Festival, which was held throughout various locations in Ardara, and Marian provided excellent walking instructions and,... More

Our first experience of B&B for several years was a great one. From arrival to departure, we were made most welcome and comfortable. The room was a good size, spotlessly clean and everything worked, including a decent Wi-Fi signal. We got a great night's sleep followed by a perfect breakfast. We couldn't ask for more than this. We'll certainly use... More

This was one of the best B&Bs we stayed in on our Irish holiday. Welcomed with tea and scones, the room was large and comfortable, and Marian was very helpful in every way. The breakfasts were amazing and very varied - the pancakes are highly recommended.
