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

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

After the din of Derry we welcomed driving into the sleepy town of Buncrana, and the refuge offered by Marie Vaughan's lovely residence. Modern in construction but tastefully furnished with a timeless charm, it houses spacious rooms with gorgeous views of the town and the lough through its many windows. Cleanliness is clearly a priority here, and the breakfasts are... More

Our room was very spacious with a fabulous view of the town and lough. Innkeeper was very efficient, provided a filling Irish breakfast or continental service. One small peeve( and this could have just been a slip), there was no bathmat.

The room was cleaned every morning. Breakfast was plain but yummy. No fancy stuff, just eggs, meat, cereal, brown bread. yogurt, fresh... More

We spent one night in this B & B and had a very relaxing stay. The beds were extremely comfortable and I enjoyed the best nights sleep I'd had in a long while. The owner was helpful and friendly and gave us some pointers about some great things to do in the area. Definitey would recommend staying here.

I stayed at Caldra from Sept 14-18 2012, and I had very enjoyable experience. The house and the view was beautiful. The breakfast was big and tasty. The hostess was very nice always asking me where I went during the day, and she even offered me I ride to the bus stop when I was leaving. My room was big... More
