Great B&B, with great views of the valley. Mary is lovely and so kind. She welcomed us with a tea and a big smile. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Perfect place to get to know Slieve League and Glencolmcille.

A wonderful location (the views were spectacular) with a very personable hostess. Breakfast was great and set the tone for the day. But the room was small and the bed needed urgent replacement. We don't mind sleeping in a double (rather than a Queen) bed, but this one rolled to the middle very badly.

Mary and her husband are very welcoming (they also offered to give us a lift to Donegal!); the B&B is perfect and clean, even suitable for travellers without car (there's a bus from Donegal to Carrick). Rich breakfast included ;)

Breakfast was great. We got a great tips regarding where to hike and where to dine. Mary made us feel welcome and at home. It was cold... More

Mrs. Service was a helpful hostess both as to the quality of the accommodation and breakfasts, but also helpful in advising things to do and places to visit. She added considerably to my stay of 3 nights. Ken Anderton

This is a late review! Mary was kind enough to let us stay here, even though it was not the regular season for guests (March 19, 2014). She was very accommodating and resourceful about the area. She also prepared an excellent traditional Irish breakfast in the morning. There is a great view from the front windows of the house and... More

I travelled Ireland for two weeks and this experience was one of my favorites! Mary welcomed us warmly into her lovely home. The beds were comfy and clean. The breakfast was delicious!

Mary's b&b is so nice. Just a few minutes away from the stunning Slieve League cliffs, it has very cosy bedrooms with TV and free wifi, all en-suite. When we arrived Mary made us a cup of tea and muffins, so kind. In the town centre, which is about 5 mins away by car, you can find everything you need:... More

15 years ago we were in this B&B. Now we are back in ireland and because we were in the neigbourhood, we decided to take this one again. No regrets! The lady is still very friendly, breakfast is very good, and slieve league is in the backyard

My wife and I spent a night at Mary and Andy's great B&B, and so pleased we did. The room was clean, pretty and comfortable, and we had off street parking, and about a 15 minute walk down the hill to the pub for dinner. Mary was the most gracious host, providing us with tea/coffee and cupcakes on arrival, and... More
