I went with a friend last year in July and like it a lot. Especially the brawn water. The pit in the fire place in the summer. You are outside of time in Green Gate. I wish I could stay there more :))))

Stayed 2 nights with my wife in September. Whilst this may be a highly acclaimed B&B, it is not for anyone looking for all mod cons or even many mod cons. There is certainly a number of positives - Paul is a charming and very helpful host, the location is very peaceful and private and the views are excellent. However... More

The position of this B & B can be quite stunning - the views and general tranquility. However - it is high up and on the West of Ireland so is wet and 'in cloud' quite often. This made our room damp and the bedclothes damp. The heating system is very old, difficult to adjust and inadequate. The conversion from... More

It is now 8 years since I went to The Green Gate for the first time and I still get excited at each chance to go back. I love the atmosphere, the view and of course Paul who created this magical place. I can't wait to go back as soon as possible.

We were looking for something different and special and thats what we found at Green Gate. Fantastic views, peace and quiet surrounded by nature, with a charming and helpful host. Some less than satisfied guests obviously didn't read his accurate description on his website (www.thegreengate.eu). Sometimes, reviews can be helpful but not always the full story due to different tastes.... More

The B&B sits atop a hill overlooking the city of Ardara and Donegal Bay. The view is spectacular and ideal for watching the sunset. The B&B is nestled in between hilly farmland, surrounded by green mountains and grazing sheep. The accommodation is truly unique and makes you feel like you have truly disconnected from the hustle and bustle of everyday... More

We stayed in a gorgeous thatched cottage in an idylic rural location, the views were truly wonderful. Ideally located for exploring Donegal and was a lovely little haven to return to at the end of a busy day. The green gate b&b deserves all the best praise bestowed on it!! There is no tv, wifi, shower etc but I think... More

The Green Gate is a cosy B&B in an out-of-the-way location with a genial host in Paul Chatenoud. Nestled high up on the side of the Ardvally hill, the view of nearby Ardara and Loughros Beg Bay is stupendous (weather permitting, of course). Each morning, we joined Paul for breakfast in his cottage, where he cultivated a friendly, chatty atmosphere... More

Me and my partner visited here and had the most memorable stay. The setting was outstanding and the hospitality was second to none. Green gates is the most authentic experience one will have in Donegal, if not Ireland. A hidden gem and value for money.

Staying at the Green Gate B&B is a perfect way to experience the rustic beauty of Donegal, Ireland. And the delightful owner of the B&B only makes it all the more rewarding. It is not the lap of luxury but it caters to the seasoned traveler in search for a new and bohemian experience. Tucked deep in the rolling hills... More
