Stayed last night, 07/08/2014, at Hollycrest B & B, a pleasant and relaxing experience. We can highly recommend staying in this welcoming home run most efficiently by Anne and Liam - a homely environment and perfect hosts. Great 'full Irish' breakfast with fresh, warm pancakes a bonus!

We decided to stay here because it was close to Slieve League and it was nothing shy of great! Ann was very welcoming and had wonderful suggestions for what to do in the area. The breakfast was my favorite of the trip, she had wonderful fruit salad and awesome pancakes! I was glad we had a chance to spend a... More

I have stayed at Holly Crest for the past 7 summers, along with friends and family, to hike in the area of Glencolmcille. Ann is always so welcoming, helpful, and friendly. She has great suggestions for places to eat and things to do, and Holly Crest is very convenient to an area that provides incredible hikes, walks, beaches, and scenery.... More

Anne and Liam Keeney welcomed ten members of my family in their wonderful B&B for three nights and made us feel most at home. Anne's breakfast was by far the best we had anywhere in Ireland. Liam's suggestions for visiting this beautiful corner of Ireland were most appreciated. The B&B, situated right outside of Killybegs is well placed for visiting... More

Last minute decision to climb Slieve League and picked this off the internet to stay one night. The owner was very pleasant, welcoming and helpful. The room was clean & adequate. Good choice of breakfast items including home made pancakes and "Tate & Lyle" syrup...brought back childhood memories from long ago. Location is just a little bit far outside Killybegs... More

Had a great stay in this B&B. Spotlessly clean and a huge breakfast in the morning. Absolutely no complaint, would definitely stay again. Convenient location for many local restaurants and bars. There is also free wifi.

This was a wonderful surprise in Killybegs. Good accommodations to match any Irish setting in Ireland. Rooms were clean and comfortable with all modern conveniences. TV and WiFi, why yes! The breakfast was superb. Ann, the operator is a great ambassador for Donegal. I learned a lot about this northern Irish Treasure.. Donegal has so much to offer in scenery... More

Staying with Ann and Liam Keeney is an absolute delight.The location is great, on the Killybegs-Donegal Town Road. The rooms are spacious and lovely. There is wifi. The breakfast is superb. The welcome by this couple is just exceptional. Maybe, if you are fortunate, they will tell you about Killybegs, County Donegal, sights to see, and the history of the... More
