We enjoyed our stay at the Brae House a lot! The room was in excellent condition, clean, tidy and cosy. Nora is a very friendly host and fulfilled every wish in an uncomplicated way: Additional electric heaters, breakfast wishes, bus timetables... also her recommendation of the bike rental in Ardara was very helpful! The Brae House is right in the... More

Those who insist on staying in hotels rather than in a private house for their holiday stays ought to think again in my opinion .Nora's abode would win you over along with her bright and cheerful manner .By nature she wants to please and please she does ! Nothing is too much trouble for her . Her place was spick-and... More

For Breakfast you could choose from lots of different cereals and the full Irish wasn't very Full, First time we got a... More

Great B and B in the Best Little Town in Ireland. Hostess Nora is very gracious and helpful. Rooms cozy and beds comfortable. Great location to explore this lovely town close to; bus stop, restaurants, pubs and lots of weaving and knitting shopping. Everyone is so friendly. We wished we could stay longer and will surely be back.

Brae House is right in the Main Street, so handy to pubs etc, and Nora the host is friendly and attentive. The rooms are clean, but they would be better with better soundproofing (even just carpet the stairs) as you hear every footstep, and update the pillows. The breakfast wasn't the best one we had, but it was adequate.

In the fall 2013 my wife and I toured Ireland for 5 weeks by bus (Bus Eireann). No driving for us on the “wrong” side of the street! We chose lodging based primarily on 1) Location : close walking distance to center of town 2) TripAdvisor evaluations 3) cost (value). We stayed primarily in B & B’s. Brae house met... More

Thank you Nora for a fantastic stay. You made us welcome and feel like part of the family. Such a great location on the main road and so close to Nancy's Restaurant. The room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was just delicious. It was a great thank you Nora.

Very cosy place that feels like home. Clean and neat. Perfect location - right in the centre of Ardara. Nora is such a lovely and helpful person. You should definitely stay there if you are in that part of Donegal. Ardara is a great little town. Amazing scenery on your doorstep. Don't forget to go to The Corner House for... More

One of the other reviews is titled "Nora looks after you like Mom", and it is true! She is full of good advice about Ardara, the rest of Ireland, and even life! Very funny, and you suspect she would be willing to scold anyone in town that gives any of her guests trouble! The room was clean and comfortable and... More
