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

We received such a warm greeting from Mary and Hugh that I felt like we were visiting family. The rooms were a nice size and quite comfortable. They've invested in the property in recent years with new bathrooms and a lovely outdoor seating surrounded by roses. They had toiletries available and working TVs in the room where we were able...

A lovely guest house nestled in the hillside going out of Glenties. Mary and Hugh were wonderful hosts and helped my Mum and I with local knowledge of the area and really looked after us. The room was top notch and the breakfast was delicious! I will be coming back and soon I hope...

While in Ireland did a stop in Glenties in County Donegal. Avalon B&B was a great find. The hosts Mary and Hugh could not have made us feel more welcome. We were welcomed with tea and cookies and met the family. They were very helpful with what to see in the area and dinner recomendations. It is a modest B&B... More

The four stars are all for the very warm welcome received at Avalon house by landlady Mary! Nothing to blame on the accomodation itself: we had a comfortable double room with all amenities (tv, tea&coffee, hairdryer, wifi...), the decoration was not very stylish but the bed was comfortable and that's what really matters. Well the family had guests for the... More
