We have just returned from three lovely days spent in Woodhill House in Ardara. The welcome we received was warm and genuine, and set the tone for our stay. The house itself has a sense of history, with fine gardens and views, and inside there are beautiful pieces of art, happily mingling with family photographs. The dinner menu deserves a... More

Other reviews have described the layout of the hotel and how it all works. All I have to add is that the service is fantastic. The food is inventive and of a very high quality, and finally - it's great value for money. Probably the best restaurant in Donegal - highly recommended!

We spent 3 nights at Woodhill House and loved it. Overall a relaxing, clean and quiet B&B. Highly recommended! Rooms - the room we were given was a garden room on the 1st floor that was quite dark. We asked for the one above it, which was wonderful - bright with big ceilings and views of the gardens. Bed was... More

Spent one night here on a recent visit on wild Atlantic Way. Was really very pleasantly surprised. The house is full of character in a beautiful setting and overlooking stunning gardens. We stayed in the old coach house outside, the room is very simple but lovely and bright. We ate in the main house that evening and had a very... More

The house is charming and cosy and the owners and staff are friendly and attentive, we dined in the hotel restaurant and could not compliment it highly enough..one of the nicest meals we have had!! It is definitely worth a visit, we will... More

Woodhill House, Ardara, Donegal doesn’t seem to make it into the guidebooks (though a friend tells us it has just appeared in the Irish Times as one of the best places to eat in Ireland). We thought it was superb and went back a second time during our stay in Ardara. You approach this hotel – parts of it dating... More

Charming place. Very friendly family and staff run. Clean, food very good. We had breakfast and evening meal there. Rooms were massive with lovely view of gardens. Only criticism is the rooms are a little tired and the shower/plumbing needs seriously updating but in this day age high power shower etc and regulated heat are the norm. But don't let... More

We stayed here with our daughter, son in law and grandson. John, James and Catherine treated us like family. The bar are was like a big lounge where we could hang out and relax. The room was spacious and very clean. The gardens were beautiful! I would highly recommend staying here.

This lovely place was recommended by my cousin's friend who frequents this wonderful B&B. We found the place charming, cozy and owners, John and James, were absolutely delightful. Our rooms were in the newer part of the establishment, overlooking the gardens, and we would highly recommend them - although, after looking at photos of the interior rooms, they look wonderful...

Stayed one night passing through Ardara, lovely spacious room looking onto peaceful countryside & extremely relaxing stay. The atmosphere is of a warm & well lived in home rather than a functional or 'sterile' b&b; it's as spotless as a guest would want while keeping the character of a house that's been lived in. There is attention to detail without... More
