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.

The room was very spacious as was the bathroom and the views from every window was wonderful. Marian's breakfast was fantastic, with homemade baked goods and a choice of entree. The pancakes are phenomenal! We stayed two nights and I... More

I highly recommend this B&B. Marian was an amazing hostess. After a long day exploring the county, we were greeted with warm homemade scones and hot tea. The room was huge for a family of three. It was clean and decorated beautifully. The breakfast of a smoked salmon and eggs was a nice change from the huge Irish Breakfast we... More
