We loved our stay in Ardara and at Woodhill house. Our booking was absolutely random as Ardara was not the main destination of our roadtrip and what a lucky pick it was! The house just oozes hospitality. All the family photographs in the decor make you feel as if you are visiting friends rather than being a paying guest. Room... More

A lovely Country House in a beautiful setting with its own wonderful gardens. The rooms are clean & very comfortable. The staff are very attentive, courteous & helpful and mine host John Yates (a Bristolian) is a veritable treasure trove of tourist information. The breakfasts are delightful and the bar and evening food (when available) is good too. It only... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Woodhill House. If you're looking for attention to detail, superb food and friendly service this is the spot. Highlight for me was taking coffee after dinner by the fire in the lounge bar, looking out over Donegal mountains.

My husband and I had the most fortunate experiences while staying at Woodhill House Hotel. We stayed in the Coachhouse, first room on the bottom floor. I believe it is the room featured on their website for the Coachhouse rooms. The house and its environs exude Irish charm. There was a lovely young lady who greeted us upon arrival. Her... More

This time we were in the garden rooms and, whilst being very spacious they were in need of refurbishemnt and updating. Last stay we only ate breakfasrt and it was adequate as it was again this...

If I could give the Woodhill House higher than an 'excellent' I would. The staff made us feel right at home. Our host, John, is fantastic. This B&B is a 1600 plantation and decorated in period decor. Breakfast was beyond excellent. I had the smoked herring which was absolutely the best I have ever had. The House is very close... More

Really needed a short weekend break after a busy couple of months and the relaxation started as soon as I parked the car. The evening meal was excellent, the salmon starter was an explosion of flavors, the room was warm and the bed was glorious. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Just as the title - as... More

Our host, John Yates, was charming and informative and fun. The manor house was so welcoming and warm. Always a peat fire in the fireplace. There is a beautiful tree-covered drive from the road to the house. The bar area was pleasant and our room was small but so much character and dynamite views. Breakfast was very good as well....
