If you are traveling to Malin Head, Whitestrand B&B is where you want to stat overnight! We arrived there late, but that was absolutely no problem. On the top of it, we were greeted with a smile and scones, muffins and tea. We had a baby with us, which was again no problem, (you know, they can be noisy), instead,... More

Minetta and I had an absolutely wonderful two weeks within Buliban Cottage, Malin Head. Mary was a wonderful host and made sure that our stay was just perfect. We were in the middle of moving house and the two weeks of rest and relaxation was made all that better with wonderful weather and an excellent host. Mary even served us... More

Wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit, warm scones, porridge. Even the water tasted great! Very clean, large room. Quiet location. No views from B&B (though the lambs next door were sweet), but breathtaking ocean views 2 minutes' drive away. Proprietor extremely hospitable. Add to this, least expensive B&B I stayed at in Ireland!

Mary Houghton has made her B&B into a warm, welcoming home. The rooms are large and comfortable with beautiful views of Malin Head. I love going for a walk along the beach and then up through the farms, talking to the sheep, cows and horses. Breakfast is individual and yummy.

On behalf of my 89 year old mother visiting the place of her childhood. Mary could not have been more accommodating attending to every need and some! A lovely place to take a break and enjoy this beautiful part of Donegal. Choice of eggs (including duck)for breakfast and full Irish is highly recommended B&B only but Mary offered afternoon home...

Just back from an amazing stay in Malin Head. Mary was so helpful from the start, giving us lots of information and even having milk in the fridge for us, after a 4 hour drive it was the little things that help. The cottage is beautiful, the outdoor area is amazing. Even though it was March, we insisted on trying... More

We stayed two nights for a wedding. Mary and James went above and beyond whilst looking after us...including arranging to return our trainers though a network of friends and family! If you're not pushed for time when you arrive... Switch off your GPS… And get lost… It's worth every moment bumbling around the headland. Thanks Mary and James!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm welcome awaits you here at Whitestrand B&B in Malin Head at the northernmost tip of the Wild Atlantic Way coastal route. Since 2000 I have been welcoming guests from all over the world. Many have returned for several visits, been drawn back by the varities of activites and attractions on offer in this area. Boasting the unrivalled natural beauty of County Donegal at every turn, you will experience spectacular views from our Bed & Breakfast.Catching a glimpse of basking sharks, dolphins and seals in the waters around Malin Head will surely make your visit a memorable one. With beautiful beaches, hill walks, diving and superb water sports and gold in the area, you are sure to enjoy your stay at Whitestrand. This area, with it's rugged landscape, is a haven for cyclists, walkers and birdwatchers alike and it is one of the few remaining area in Ireland where you still hear the corncrake bird calling during the short nights around midsummer. Many visitors have come especially to view the famed Northern Lights. They have been enthralled at the spectacular red and green shimmering lights of the Aurora Borealis in the skies over Malin Head. Whitestrand B&B has three rooms ensuite, all with seaviews, one room is a family room. ... more   less
