My wife and I stayed at the Avalon Guest House B&B during our recent 17 day trip through Ireland. Mary and Hugh were wonderful hosts - giving us great tips on what to see in the area and making a great breakfast every morning. The bedroom was very comfortable and the bathroom was great. It looked brand new.

You'll not find a warmer welcome or a more comfortable place to stay in Donegal! Mary and Hugh are excellent hosts, and we felt at home from the moment we stepped through the door. Our rooms were immaculate and well furnished, with very comfortable beds and good reading lights. The breakfasts were superb (don't miss Mary's homebaked breads!) The location... More

Thanks to Mary and Charlie for a comfortable stay at their B&B. The rooms and bathrooms were recently refurbished and as good as any hotel, especially with the finer details attended to such as embroidered logos on the towels in the bathroom. Great to have WIFI throughout the building and breakfast in the morning was the perfect start to the... More

Excellent location, quality breakfasts, welcoming hosts. Guest lounge is a real plus. Good value for money. I'd recommend. Not quite close enough for us to walk to dinner on country road into town but v short drive.

We definitely would go back & would recommend anyone to stay here. Rooms were fine, clean & bed comfortable but more than anything Mary & Hugh made us very welcome & we were able to sit in the lounge after dinner out & have our nightcap. Breakfast was served in a friendly & efficient manner. We were made to feel... More

Stayed here while we were doing a run round the west coast on the motorcycles. Mary and Hugh are lovely, only in the door and shown our room, before we had tea and coffee in front of us with a plate of food. Rooms were good sized with ensuite, well decorated and very clean. Coffee making facilities in room, hairdryer,... More

We went to Avalon B&B in Glenties this summer. Mary and Hugh are nice and excellent hosts. They have a very cosy house. We assure that coeliac people have breakfast as if they are at their own home, and that Mary's homemade cakes and breads are delicious.

We stayed two nights and we could not have asked for a better host and hostess in Mary and Hugh. We arrived and were offered tea and home made bread and jam and were asked did we want more,you wont get this in an anonymous hotel. Breakfast, all you can eat with decent tea which is sometimes hard to get... More
