“Outstanding inn and restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The rooms and restaurant are positively outstanding. Home made breads, baked goods at breakfast. FULL breakfast, indeed! Wine reasonably priced and home made perfection in the kitchen. Relaxed dining experience. Friendly, hospitable owners make you really feel at home and appreciated. If you are looking really to get away from it all, try the Mill without hesitation and try Dunfanaghy. It is mesmerizingly remote and beautiful and the folk in this part of the country are quiet and thoughtful. We will never forget our experience here in July 2006. It was perfect in every way imaginable.

It was our first time at The Mill Restaurant and it certainly won´t be our last! What a great time we had! The ambience was perfect, very warm and inviting place, very friendly staff and the food was delicious. We could not find fault with anything, a very special hideaway indeed. Next time we will have to stay because we were so relaxed and pampered leaving.

I really don't want to share my experiences of The Mill with anyone in case it becomes too popular and I can't get a room the next time I want to stay. So very reluctantly I will admit that it is very special, unique and a tranquil place to stay. Little touches, unobtrusive staff and a beautiful setting all blend together to make this a truly memorable hideaway.

The Mill could only be described as a beautiful little, traditional style Irish hotel absolutely full of character and charm. My girlfriend and I enjoyed two nights stay which was thoroughly relaxing in a amazing bedroom over looking Mount Errigle and New Lake. The rooms were lovely and warm, a comfy big bed and the showers are great. We've ate at the Mill on several occasions and as before we were not left disappointed, the quality and presentation of the food is second to none.....there's nothing comes close to it in Dunfanaghy. I could not recommend the Mill highly enough!

Spent a night with my parents - beautiful rooms and view, complimentary wine and shortbread. Turf fire was welcome on a March snowy evening. Joined by other family members for dinner - great meal and Maggie was a very attentive waitress. The fudge with coffee was yummy. All in all I would recommend The Mill and look forward to visiting again. (The Prosecco was a bit expensive- but we did overdo it a bit!!)

Room Tip: A view of the lake is a bonus

My partner surprised me with a night away here at The Mill last night!!
A fabulous place to stay if you just want to get away from it all and relax.Our room was overlooking the lake,lovely and warm and very comfortable.This place is a bit like you have stepped back in time a bit but this is not a negative thing more like refreshing in this time of high tech,mobile phones and ipads.from the open turf fire,nibbles with your aperitif,candles dotted all around,great but discret service and fabulous food there was nothing we could fault! Chocolate tart was reccommended to try and lemon tart to die for!!
We slept well and went down to breakfast with a fabulous view over the lough,good coffee,lovely continental buffet and the cooked breakfast was probally one of the best I have had-everything seemed either home made or very local and cooked to perfection!
So if you fancy a quiet night away(no technology:)) in a very peaceful setting with great service and fabulous food this is the place to go!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

My husband and I stayed here recently and enjoyed our stay. The main reason we booked The Mill was because the restaurant has the status of being the best in Donegal, and whilst our meal was very nice (starters and desserts were very good) it was not as good as we would have expected. My main course was turbot which should have been excellent but was mediocre and my husband choose pheasant which was completely over done. We gave this feedback politely and quietly but it was cooly received which is a shame as the restaurant could be even better if it could take some honest criticism. The hotel itself is a delight (but I do wish they would provide king size beds for couples!) and the service was good and the breakfast was superb, we would return but not because of the restaurant.
