My wife and I stayed here for one night only as we were attending a wedding in nearby Redcastle. Olga and Irwin are a lovely couple who were not only very welcoming but extremely helpful to us in their advice regarding taxis etc. Irwin was good enough to drive us down to the wedding so that we could leave the...

If you want to go to the Inishowen Peninsula (and you should) then the only reason for not staying here is that you can't get in. It's welcoming, spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable; if that's not enough, the location is excellent and the breakfast perfect.

We agree. That's why we choose to live here and have the pleasure of sharing the magic that is the Inishowen peninsula - like a mini Ireland with it's awesome views, wildness and close knit communities. It retains the uniqueness and quaintness of Old Ireland yet only a short distance from Derry/Londonderry with its walls, history and culture, sitting comfortably... More

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 5 and 7 year old daughters. Olga and Irwin could not have been more welcoming and the bedroom was very comfortable and spotlessly clean with stunning views. Breakfasts were delicious, the local knowledge really informative and useful and the big trunk of games much appreciated. We would definitely recommend Inishowen Lodge.

A delightful family who enjoyed the scenery and the uniqueness of Inishowen while visiting relatives. The girls' excitement of being in beautiful and interesting new surroundings was an absolute joy to see. We are delighted that you appreciated our facilities and as the girls start asking more questions there will be a wider choice of new interests to investigate. Maybe... More

We stayed here while on our honeymoon. The b&b itself is wonderful -- incredible views, spacious, lovely furnishings. What really puts it head and shoulders above the rest, though, is the magic woven by Irwin and Olga, the hosts. Olga's breakfasts were hands down the best that we had in Ireland. Irwin has a deep knowledge of the Inishowen peninsula... More

I stayed for one night at Inishowen Lodge and was really impressed by the whole experience. On arrival I was given a warm greeting, shown to my spacious, spotlessly clean room and offered a cup of tea in the lounge which appeared with Olga's homemade scones and biscuits. Irwin makes a great host, friendly and knowledgeable. The bedroom was warm... More

We very much enjoyed our stay in Inishowen Lodge. The owners were very very nice and did everything to make us feel comfortably. Also the room was beautiful, spacious and with view on the lake. So we would definitely stay there again, even though it's a bit outside and you need a car to get to Moville.

Magnificent views do create the magic and wow factor that is a huge part of the Inishowen Lodge experience. We are delighted that we contributed to your very special holiday.
