I stayed here for a week during my very first visit to Donegal, and had a great experience. Wonderful hospitality and free lifts into the village whenever I wanted, even late at night. I hadn't really expected cooked breakfasts as I'm a vegetarian, but they accommodated me very well with scrambled eggs, toast and beans each morning. One of the... More

Our second time staying here in three years, situated in a stunning location. Warm friendly owners and excellent value for the en suite accommodation, breakfast and packed lunch provided . There was a problem the first night with another group of guests which was dealt with professionally by the owners and the problem did not occur again the second night,... More

Stayed here as part of a large group of friends (adults and children). Perfect accommodation for relaxing with kids. Lovely welcome from Paul and Sharon and very helpful with itinerary, suggestions and directions to local attractions prior to arriving. We loved the fact that the B&B and full use of kitchen for self catering options were both made available, as... More

The owner, Paul, looks after the guests personally, the place has an excellent location. It is a pity the breakfast has no healthy option like cheese or fruits. Options are toast and butter, cereals or full Irish. As an extra tip, I'd say the owner is missing a great chance of making some more money, if only they had license... More

I stopped her for a week and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Paul was very helpful, and friendly. Made me feel very welcome. Combine this with some amazing local scenery, fantastic places to hike, and friendly locals, and you have a great holiday. The hostel was clean, comfy, and had good facilities.

Great service. They picked me up from the bus stop, took me to Slieve League and to shop for food. They suggested what I could do based on my interest. I hadn't done any research, so I was so glad that they introduced me Slieve League. It's such a beautiful place and Glencolmcille was also very beautiful and peaceful.

Friendly and helpful staff. Great location to visit Slieve League and other attractions in Donegal. Nice buffet breakfast with a cooked option. Lots of parking. My room was comfortable and had an ensuite. Reasonably priced. Central kitchen available for guests to use.
