I have never stayed in a B&B before and was rather apprehensive when I booked. I should never have worried. I was in Ireland for a wedding, my friends had all managed to get rooms in hotels near the venue and were paying £100 a night. What would I get for 35 euros? Well, I got a good nights sleep,... More

I stayed here as a birthday treat for myself last August, taking the ferry from Rathmullan to Buncranna on route. If the owners make a place, then rest assured, this couple are genuinely nice and welcoming. The house and grounds are like a 4star lodge, best of all, on the waterfront, and within walking distance to a beautiful wee beach.... More

They are welcoming and interesting people, with values we appreciate (they grow or source their food locally, are committed to their community, etc.). The building is a fine example of a 17th/18th century manor house - spacious and... More

Linsfort Castle B&B is a perfect ‘Gem’ to visit, nestled in a lovely spot of the ‘Inishowen Scenic 100’route, north of Buncrana. As soon as you arrive you’re greeted by wonderful hospitality. The couple serve, up a superb breakfast, oozing in flavour, as they produce much of their own food stuff, i.e. honey, jams, free range eggs and vegetables etc.... More
