Conveniently located near Dunfanaghy, with a lovely setting overlooking a lake & mountains, The Mill Restaurant & Accommodation is highly recommended. Dinner on both nights was delicious & the service faultless. The bedrooms are well appointed, clean & comfortable. A nice touch is you get two complimentary mini bottles of wine in your room. Breakfast was also excellent. Anne was... More

We stayed here for an anniversary and have to say we really enjoyed our wee trip away to this hidden gem. I loved being close to Dunfanaghy as its such a nice wee town with a great atmosphere. We had dinner here which was lovely but a bit too rich for me. My partner loved his though. It was very... More

.....the absolute delight of staying and eating at The Mill. I must have felt some of the magic whilst booking as we stayed for 5 nights in this beautiful home, and even this wasn't long enough. Susan & Derek are most welcoming, the room we were given was beautiful, comfortable, with a lovely view. And the whole house is lovely,... More

We wanted a quiet place to stay with good food on the coast of Donegal. The Mill ticked all the boxes. The reception on arrival was warm and friendly and within 5 minutes we were enjoying a much needed cup of tea with home made shortbread biscuits in the conservatory. There were two half bottles of wine in each room!... More

This was such a beautiful little escape to stunning Dunfunaghy. it's one of those places that you don't want to review because you want to ensure there's still space for you to return. Everything about this BnB was delicious. every little detail was taken care of. the rooms are lovely, very well fitted out. We had the Casey room and... More

You don't...... Just back from trip no 26 over the last 14 years...... Perfect accommodation, food & staff - best chill out spot in the world (from a well travelled pair). Susan & Derek provide a wee oasis in the madness of life - rooms are delightful, full of gorgeous paintings & antiques & great beds. Food is incredible -... More

We will arrange our next trip to Ireland around this restaurant with rooms! Beautiful room with nice extra touches such as complimentary bottles of wine. Fantastic peaceful setting next to the lake. Lovely restaurant with an interesting menu, all beautifully cooked. After the wonderful breakfast, we were sad to leave. We will however, be back.

Just back from two nights in The Mill with my husband. Always wary of glowing reviews but our experience certainly exceeded our expectations. I echo all the comments made by other reviewers. Location, view and ambience all outstanding. We have eaten in five star hotels in Australia, the Far East South America ,USA and Europe but this was a different... More

This is a fantastic restaurant for a special occasion. Beautiful location, and food to match, cooked from local ingredients, served in a lovely room, and we love being able to relax over tea and coffee in the conservatory after the meal. Just make a reservation as it is usually fully booked!
