We loved staying here for a few nights on our honeymoon. The owner was so welcoming and kind. The room and bathroom were excellent and spacious, unlike many of the other places we had stayed at. The breakfast was delicious and we had a beautiful view. Highly recommend.

Glencairn House is located in an excellent location for visiting Letterkenny and the Inishowen Pennisula. The host, Maureen is a gracious person, welcoming us with fresh coffee and a lovely comfortable room. We stayed on September 15, 2015 for one night and had a wonderful rest in a very comfortable bed. The breakfast room was lovely as was the breakfast.... More

We stayed with Maureen McCleary at Glencairn in Letterkenny in early October. We had stayed with her on an earlier trip to Ireland in 2003. Her welcome was just as gracious and the accommodations were first-rate as before. The house is conveniently located off a busy road and offers beautiful gardens and grounds. The breakfast was of a high standard... More

We stayed at Glencairn House as it was one of the only places with free rooms. It turned out to be a bargain - and a wonderful place! Glencairn House has free parking and a very nice breakfast is included. The owner recommend a place to have dinner which was marvellous!

Beautiful home and rooms. Great breakfast and very hospitable host in giving us directions to local pubs. Within walking distance is a great one or short drive into town. Tea or coffee upon arrival and well marked signs to find it.

The breakfast here is fantastic. Maureen is a wonderful cook...fresh baked bread, eggs and bacon (or salmon), tomatoes, fruit. Really delicious. The one downside is that the house is on a very busy street. The pictures make it look sort of remote, but it's not. I had a lot of street noise in my room. So much so that I... More

We had a wonderful stay here. The welcome, the beautiful room and 2 night's stay were without a single problem. Maureen, the owner, was very inviting to us eventhough arrived quite late. The breakfast was delicious too. We are looking forward to staying here again when we are back. Thanks again Maureen
