I visited with 2 friends on 12th September 2016. We had the most delightful stay. The staff could not have been nicer, and the food was wonderful. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to anyone who wants to sample real Irish hospitality.

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your lovely review. Im not sure what you used to find us but Google maps work really well in the countryside much better than the G.P.S. systems in cars as they don't seem to recognize the by pass of the town. Im delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. It was lovely... More

We found our B&B outside of town without difficulty. Easy parking and a comfortable room awaited us. The beds were comfortable and the house was quiet at night. The morning breakfast was wonderful with fresh, quality ingredients. The best part was the detailed attention Theresa gave us to go over our day's plans.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your lovely review. It was lovely to meet you.

We were lucky to find an available room in this place as the town was almost completely booked out. It's more of a small hotel than a b&b, everything is well designed and the owners have put a lot of effort into making the place comfortable. The breakfast was lovely and the staff very helpful and friendly. It can be... More

We arrived at 9pm after a red eye flight from Boston through Paris, and then driving on the left for the first time across Ireland to Donegal - about 30 hours of constant travel before arriving. They were kind enough to make us dinner even though the kitchen normally closed at 9pm. My husband had lamb, I had fish, it... More

Ard na Breatha is a beautiful B&B situated on a farm about 2 kilometers from Donegal Town. It is easily accessible to town yet far enough to provide a quiet retreat in a picturesque location. Although we only stayed for one night we could have easily stayed longer. The room and beds were very comfortable and breakfast was top notch.... More

Beautiful scenery and a superb breakfast. You must order the sausages. They are from town where the butcher wins awards for his bangers. We were greeted by the owner and she was helpful and pleasant.

The accommodation is fine but what really makes this place special are the owners. They took really good care of us. The breakfast was good. There was a wide selection of everything:-) Price was good! It's a 15-20 minutes walk to town. We can suggest this to people who are looking for a good B&B. Super!

My aunt and I arrived in town and, luckily for us, this was one of the only places available. After having stayed in a hostel in downtown Dublin for three nights this cute guest house, perched amongst the hills, was the perfect setting.

We stayed two nights in this beautiful B & B. Good room, nice view on the surrounding hills but most of all: what an excellent kitchen!!! In my opinion the quality is of a Michelin star rate. We had diner two nights with our friends, a wide range of choices, very friendly service and reasonable prices.
