I was lucky to stay at the Whins for 5 nights. The hosts were fantastic, and helpful, just really lovely people. The room was big, very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were amazing. And the location was only a short, easy walk into Dunfanaghy town centre and a quick stroll across from the golf course and Killyhoey Beach. I would... More

A great location in a really beautiful part of the world. By far the best breakfast I've ever had at a B&B, the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs are a great way to start anyone's day. The Whins are located close to a magnificent beach, so there isn't much missing here. The rooms are comfortable, big and well appointed.

Beautiful B&B overlooking the golf course which overlooks the sea. Pretty town on the scenic northern coast of County Donegal and this place is a short walk from it. New owners John and Barbara couldn't have been nicer. Great breakfast. Would highly recommend.

The rooms were nicely decorated and clean. The place is within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants of the town. The location is also great for exploring the famous Horn Head. The hostess also gave us good advice on what else to see nearby.

Dunfanaghy was a lovely little town and our stay with Anne Marie at the Whins was terrific. The room we stayed in had a cute nautical theme, and we enjoyed spending time in the sitting area upstairs which had a great view of the golf course. The beach was a short walk away, and we ended our two evenings in... More

Anne Marie was very welcoming and a wealth of information about the area. The breakfast was yummy, the rooms cozy and comfy. They are making efforts to be "more green" this year which we loved. Dunfanghy was a fun place to explore- we would have loved another day here!! (We spent 2 nights) We caught an amazing sunset out on... More

In the fall 2013 my wife and I toured Ireland for 5 weeks by bus (Bus Eireann). No driving for us on the “wrong” side of the street! We chose lodging based primarily on 1) Location : close walking distance to center of town 2) TripAdvisor evaluations 3) cost (value). We stayed primarily in B & B’s. Our 3 nights... More

Great B&B just outside the village - really comfortable room with modern decor and a big comfortable bed. Guest lounge is ideal to sit, relax and overlook the bay. The hostess Anne-Marie ensured we were looked after - her breakfasts were fresh, inventive and substantial. Really liked this accommodation and would recommend it

Lovely home with such attention to detail when it comes to ensuring a stellar guest experience! Proprietor Anne Marie is thoughtful, friendly and welcoming. I appreciated her commitment to "greening" the B&B with eco-friendly soap, shampoo and cleaning products, as well as friendly reminders to turn off lights and reuse towels. There's a beautiful sitting room with a stunning view... More
