First of all directions: on right leaving Letterkenny towards Ramelton watch out for subtle Castlegrove blue sign taking you off main road. Also signpost in brown Killydonnell Friary. Get ready for another right turn and mind the ramps! Superb ambiance, lovely old house, surrounded by greenery on the historic lough side (of Lough Swilly). Food is very good, staff are... More

This hotel has a good family run feeling and is set in a peaceful situation. Any request was eventually seen to as. I needed a bath mat. The food was good. There are ground floor rooms, but no televisions!.

Spent Saturday the 11 July here for a wedding. No matter what we asked nothing was any trouble. Staff are amazing. A massive thanks to the owner and her daughter Irene. Made me and my family feel right at home. Loved the red wine!!!. Looking forward to my next visit soon. Many thanks, Shane.

We had the pleasure of dining in this beautiful country house setting last evening, not having had the chance to do so in a long time. We used to enjoy an overnight stay on a number of occasions with friends and each visit was nothing less than superb. So going back after a number of years, I was really interested... More

We stayed here on a Sunday night in July and had a lovely time. We were upgraded to a suite which was a fantastic bonus. The location is wonderful as it is in easy reach of Letterkenny yet enjoys a secluded and peaceful countryside location. The food and service was also very good and they endeavour to create a 5...

Beautiful county house hotel which is something out of the ordinary. Perhaps not to everyone's cup of tea as its very quiet but I would definitely recommend this family run hotel if not just for the sheer pleasure of it not being a corporate and non-descript. Lovely breakfasts and very comfy beds!

This charming 300 yr old country estate is not the tour de force of this review (although it is wonderful) but rather it's the family that owns the wonderful estate that will make your stay magical. The warm hospitality evident the moment we walked in the house would be enough to earn 5 stars. Greeted by my first name the... More
