We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Caldra not least for the breathtaking view across the lough from our bedroom window. I can't understand some previous reviews as the room was very clean and comfortable with a table and chairs to relax in and take in the view. Sunny days and blue sky helped make this a memorable visit to... More

She showed us to or room and started to... More

My parents, sister's family and my family all stayed at Caldra following a wedding. The place met our needs perfectly. The owner Marie was very pleasant and accommodating. The location was walking distance (about 15 minutes) into the town. There is a beautiful walk along by the river in the Swan park that you can access at the bottom of... More

I stayed in this B&B recently and it was the worst experience I have ever had in any kind of holiday accommodation I've been in my whole life. I hadn't even arrived at the B&B and I got a bad impression of the place. I'd reserved the room specifying it was for 1 person and was given a confirmation email... More

Caldra was a lovely stay. Marie is friendly and helpful but not overly solicitous. She was nearby and ready and willing to respond if you needed anything but your privacy is respected. Our room was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was hot and delicious served in a lovely dining area. The view alone is worth the stay. The downtown area is... More

We only stayed one night and enjoyed the delicious breakfast which our hostess Marie prepared .Parking was a little tight but we made the best of it.We really enjoyed our stay here and would return if we were visiting...

we had a wonderful stay at the Caldra. Four nights and four Irish breakfasts later we were glad we stayed there. Marie took care of us and made us feel at home. Buncrana also turned out to be a great place to start our day of ancestry searches and tours of Inishowen towns. we hope to visit again and now... More

First of all, everyone in Ireland are nice people maybe except the owner of this house. Last year and this one too, we were travelling all around Ireland; always staying in their wonderful B&B´s. The woman owner of this house was extremely rude with us, very unpolite in every moment. We´ve asked her for turn the heating on just for... More
