The staff was great, the breakfast great, the location is absolutely stunning, and our rooms were in a 17th Century outbuilding. And it felt that cold inside! We traveled in February; perhaps when it's warmer the lack of decent heat won't be an issue. We survived, it was lovely.

The Woodhill is a delightful old-style country house that feels like a home and the brilliant hosts John and James do their utmost to keep it that way. Tucked away in a beautiful valley outside Ardara it is the perfect getaway location. Candlelit dining rooms, a roaring fire in the cosy bar, and excellent food. We stayed in one of...

I visited the restaurant at Woodhill last weekend with some friends for a meal and we could not find a single fault. There was something on the menu to suit everyone's taste. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. Certainly worth a visit while in Donegal,

What a surprise to find this house off the beaten track in a lovely setting overlooking green hills and sheep grazing. The food was superb, a lovely relaxed little bar, an interesting village nearby with wool and tweed factory outlets and superb drives with spectacular scenery nearby.

Got married here in July. John and his son James and the satff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was top notch, the warm cosy atmosphere and stunning grounds really added to our unforgettable day. I'd highly recommended a stay here.

My wife and I spent a few days of our five weeks touring Ireland at Woodhill House. We found the host family to be charming and especially the the staff that met us when we arrived and served our breakfasts. We stayed in both the main house and in the carriage house. The main house room was charming, and the...

Family of 3 shared a family room on a busy weekend in October. We were lucky to get the last available room as there was a festival in nearby Ardara. Taxi from Woodhill to Ardara was €5 each way and the town has lots to offer tourists including cafes, restaurants, pubs, live music at weekends etc etc. Donegal is famous...

We found it to be a little expensive for what we got. The room was poorly maintained as far as peeling wallpaper, painted furniture in dire need of another coat of paint and a window that couldnt be opened as it was hanging on one hinge. The bed was rock hard, which made it a very uncomfortable nights sleep. There...

I stayed and dined in Woodhill many times as a child with my parents and hadn't visited in many years. I was delighted to find the food and setting was still as fabulous as I remember it but sad to see its not the busy spot it used to be when it deserves to be busy. I spoke with James...

We loved staying at Woodhill House! We stayed in The Coach house which was spacious, comfortable beds, and beautiful view overlooking the walled garden. The main house had a cosy pub which offered a menu for light fare. The highlight for us was the charming village of Ardara and proximity to numerous attractions to see( Slieve League, Glenveagh National Park,...
