Stayed in August for a night with dinner. Room was in the old stable, the room was large and comfortable. The dinner was a mixed bag, we were first shown to the bar which was a bit cramped and stuffy, the father and son team who run the place were a bit quirky to say the least and left me... More

An enjoyable stay and a very good option in a small country town. The owners and staff were delightful and helpful from the day we made the reservation until we checked out and the grounds are a delight to wander. Irish charm at every turn. Good breakfast too. But some of the rooms and areas are showing their age, with... More

We found out about this place by accident after my wife visited the local hairdresser. She highly recommended it and she wasn't wrong. We were staying in Ardara for a weeks holiday and were looking to sample the local restaurants. I have to say this was by far the best we tried. James who looked after us and another lady... More

We stayed in a cottage that overlooked Woodhill House in early July and walked down on a rainy evening to dine. It was well worth the effort. A very warm welcome awaited us and the food was excellent. The memory of quail and monkfish helped me climb the hill back to our cottage. We had hoped to return to try... More

I was so pleasantly surprised at the standard of the rooms having only used the restaurant in the past. Rooms are so comfortable, great size bathroom and lovely beds with tea/coffee making facility and bottled Ballygowan water.Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing, clearly new chef and really gourmet dishes. Nothing was too much trouble as had... More

I went for the first time to Donegal to meet up with family from the United States and Dublin, but there being no room in their rented cottage I stayed at the Woodhill guest house. It is absolutely lovely there: the welcome, the room and its facilities, the terrific food which was perfect. A lovely, happy experience. Do go! A... More

This is a lovely old house with big rooms & beautiful views. The room had tea & coffee making , TV & free wi-fi. It was very quiet as it's in the country but not too far away to drive to town for dinner. Safe parking for vehicles. Breakfast was great & the hosts (father & son) were wonderful.

We were disappointed with the room which was large however it was in need of modernisation. Peeling wallpaper, rusty radiator, stains on the carpets. The bathroom was modernised but the toilet seat was twisted, the shaver socket didn't work and the sink tap was loose! Breakfast was reasonable. The highlight was the evening meal which was the best food we... More

My wife had visited the bar here last year, and wanted to return for a long weekend. This is fulfilled her wishes, and we had a great stay in a 'Garden Room' with a balcony overlooking the lovely walled garden and views of Glengesh Pass. On the first night we ate in, and the quality and service of the food... More
