Breakfasts were...

Spotlessly clean, quiet room, excellent breakfast. A five minute drive into town makes this a great place to base your stay in Donegal. The rooms are a little small but the attention to detail and quality more than make up for this.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cove Lodge. It is ideally located to visit Donegal town, and the rooms were lovely and very clean - and Liam was very kind in offering plenty of excellent tips for great trips around the county. And breakfast was excellent! This is certainly where we'll stay next time we visit Donegal.

Everything was perfect! The room was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was gorgeous and beautifully presented, the hosts were adorable, very warm and willing to help! By far the best B&B we've had during our trip in Ireland! The position was also amazing, not far from breathtaking cliffs! A wonderful stay!

Our room was very clean, on the small side, but we weren't in Ireland to spend time in our room! Great Irish breakfast. Liam was very helpful in suggesting side trips. It really felt like being home. We would definitely stay here again.
