“Best place to stay in donegal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We stayed for a few nights and the welcome was brilliant, the rooms, beds, towels were spotless. we had tea and coffee in our room daily and the woman who owns the lodgings could not have been nicer, definetly the place to stay if you are going to donegal.

Room Tip: ask for one overlooking the diamond and book early

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Myself and my partner stayed here on july 2013, the owner a gent was very friendly and helpful , room was perfect and very clean, slightly older decor but that means nothing, u could also connect to wifi without any bother, tea and coffee supplied in room and fresh clean towels. Also had a car park to the rear of the building, which was brilliant to save money on street parking, location was fantastic and easy to find. We checked out in the morning greeted by a friendly woman, who also helped us find places to go eat for breakfast. I stupidity forgot my phone in the room as I had it on charge, when we realised we returned to find the lady had taken it and kept it safe whilst continuing to charge it for me, which I thought was extremely nice of her. We will def be back to stay when we return to Donegal.

We decided not to book anything while travelling round and see where we ended up. We spotted the sign with the price which was slightly lower than everywhere else we had seen and decided to go in and have a look. The owner offered us the slightly better room for the lower price and we took it.

- The location is good, as long as noise doesn't bother you.
- The rooms are odour free (a nice change from our recent places).
- The wifi actually works.
- The parking is easy to get to.

The only downside is the lack of breakfast, but we can get something cheap from a local shop which is fine for us.

Great location overlooking the diamond in the centre of the town. Private car park which was very convenient. Rooms and ensuite spotless. Bridie the owner was very helpful and welcoming. Price was excellent!! We enjoyed the personal touch that you wouldnt get in a larger hotel. Will definitely be back !!!

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 1 night. The accommodation is right in the centre of the town. It also has a private car park at the back of the guesthouse which was great. Bridie the owner could not have been more helpful with advice and hospitality. Although there was only the 2 of us we were given the bigger room to fit 4 people, so we had plenty of space. Beds are comfortable and room was clean and tidy, with tea and coffee facilities provided in the room. This was a great accommodation choice at a bargain price, will definately return, only downfall was little water pressure in the shower, although water was always nice and hot.
Will recommend this accommodation to friends and family without a doubt.

My wife and I spent three nights in the diamond lodgings we were recommended it by friends.
On our arrival we met Bridie whom is very helpful, took us to our room which overlooked the Diamond in centre of town we had a large double bed and two single's, room and bathroom were spotless.
Bridie said it might get a bit noisy at night over the weekend well I do not know whether it was tiredness or Guinness but I slept like a baby.
Now you do not get breakfast but Bridie offered to make us toast or if we preferred we could have bowls for cereal or both, would have to buy milk and cereal.
Have to say it's a great spot to stay right in center of town with lots of entertainment all around in the bars or pubs.
As has been said before private car parking which is great this can not be overstated.
The only drawback is the stairs they are not for the faint hearted now having said that I have a dickey heart and managed very well.
Like Arnold Schwarzenegger said I will be back.

All of my family (8 in all) attended a wedding in Donegal this weekend (October bank holiday). We found the accommodation to be right in the centre of the town. It also has a private car park at the back of the guesthouse. Bridie the owner could not have been more helpfull to us on our stay. We stayed 3 nights and the accommodation was spotless. I would certainly recommend this guesthouse and will be returning in the future. Our room had a double bed and 2 single bed with on suite and tea/coffee making facilities.
