Just back from a very enjoyable stay at Avalon House...Mary and Hugh were a very friendly and welcoming couple. The house was very warm and cosy...with amazing views from every window. The breakfast was fantastic, Mary is an amazing cook and her home made bread is to die for! We all felt spoilt and very welcome and there was no... More

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

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. The rooms where clean and had an averange size. The hosts have been very welcoming and friendly. We got Tea and Coffee as a Hello. The Breakfast was delicous, especially the porridge was nice (ask for it with milk, you will love it!). We would definatly go again

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

A chance accommodation encounter of the third kind. Originally intended to stay overnight but found a family away from home, that compelled me to base this B&B for my travels around Co Donegal and Northern Ireland. Mary and Hugh are fantastic people, they do not just run the B&B....knowledgeable about their Co and Ireland. Were able to tell me about... More

Mary and her husband were charming, we arrived after 40km walk (from Donegal town) in the night & rain and they were waiting for us, helping us dry our clothes and... More

We were made very welcome. Our room was warm and cosy and the traditional breakfast was very tasty. A choice of cereals, fruits and homemade breads were also available. We can recommend this lovely B & B. Glenties is a lovely part of the country.
