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

Along with 9 other family members I stayed here recently to celebrate a family occassion. The communication with the hotel via email was extremely prompt and helpful and made a good impression before I even arrived. The hotel itself is halfway between Letterkenny and Ramelton and is well signposted. It is set in a private mature site close to Lough... More

Ate here on Friday 22may with 5 family members. The house is lovely, big roaring log fires on which was lovely. The food was really amazing, service excellent. Really enjoyed the evening and hopefully will eat there again soon. I was surprised that it wasn't busier.

We Had a lovely family meal here in the past, the staff were very helpful & polite. The scallops were amazing, as was the carrot & coriander soup, the foie gras was not for me but that's down to my personal taste. Will definitely be back again :) :)

What a delight to find this lovely house at the end of a little country road. The house is a fine example of the Irish Country house. My wife and I spent two nights in the comfort of the George Bernard Shaw room. It's probably strange to call a bedroom majestic, but that's how it seemed - crowned by a... More

We travelled with two adult children and had two wonderfully decorated rooms. A very personal and truly caring service and a great kitchen made our stay a wonderful experience. We arrived in the afternoon and did a nice tour of the peninsula with beautiful walks along nearby beaches that got us hungry for dinner. We were really baffled by the... More

This relatively small hotel retains all the character of a wealthy landowner's home. What we liked most was the choice of several beautifully furnished sitting rooms with ample space for guests to relax in front of blazing log fires. Our room was spacious and tastefully decorated. I had only one compaint - the lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the... More
