We have been staying with Mauareen and Joe since about 1990 and wouldn't stay anyplace else when we are in Donegal. They are cordial hosts who make you feel at home. The accommodations are immaculately clean and quiet. Maureen is a great cook.

Been a while since we been here but I would highly recommend it. Maureen and Joe are a lovely couple and would do anything they could to make your stay a good one. Its one of the cleanest houses I have ever stayed in and the breakfast lovely, not forgetting the welcome you get from the hosts.
