Just a couple of miles outside Donegal in a pretty setting. Wonderful host who is a font of knowledge for site seeing and restaurants, etc. Spotless, comfy room, but would have liked a bit more room in the bathroom - so small. Breakfast was delicious but I felt a little pressured to eat at the earliest time frame by the... More

We stayed one night at the Cove. The property is beautiful and very immaculate. The room was nice but on the small side. Breakfast was good. It was not as welcoming or relaxing as other B&B's we went to in Ireland, but it was nice. It is strange because it was a great property, but I never really felt comfortable... More

We stayed one night at the Cove Lodge in June. The room was modern, comfortable and very clean, with good quality linens. Great shower with plenty of hot water and plush towels. Plenty of parking and very quiet setting in the country but a quick drive into Donegal town. The breakfast was very good with several of choices in a... More

We spent three weeks travelling around Ireland, Cove Lodge was wonderful. Liam and Joan were great hosts and the breakfast was excellent. Liam provided maps and things to do around the area. Everything about this B&B was spot on. Would highly recommend.

We stayed one night and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was beautiful and very clean. We had a delicious and generous breakfast. Liam was very helpful with site seeing information and even took the he time to draw us a map. Would highly recommend the Cove Lodge.

My wife and I traveled Ireland for two weeks in late May and early June, 2016. We stayed in various towns and stayed in several different B&Bs. The Cove Lodge in Donegal was, without doubt, the best one of our trip. Our host Liam, and his wife Joan, made sure that our stay was special for us and for them.... More

Our visit was brief but very comfortable and clean. The inn keepers are super nice and accommodating. Got there a bit ahead of schedule and she let us leave our stuff there. Gave us directions to town. Breakfast was great. Yes we would stay here again

Greeted on arrival by Liam having spent the first week of our holiday in Kinsale. We stayed at The Cove Lodge for six nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time in a lovely, clean and furnished room. Liam brought several attractions to our attention and we did explore those and many others we had researched. So much choice for breakfast -... More
