There are some places you go and want to stay for much longer than you originally thought. This is one of those places. Charming, attentive staff that serve with a sense of occasion and aplomb. Tempered with a wry Donegal irony. Actually, just go there and unwind in coils.

What a wonderful hotel run by the Sweeney family. The history of this country house was amazing to listen to, the food is excellent and the staff are amazing, nothing is too much trouble for them.

We just spent 4 days there nod had an amazing time. The staff is amazingly friendly, accommodating and welcoming. They truly go out of their way to make you feel at home. If you want a sterile, new, crisp place, go elsewhere. If you want a place that feels as if you're visiting relatives, with incredible food and hospitality, then... More

We recently stayed here (1 night) as part of our tour of the Wild Atlantic Way. The overall ambience and feel for the location is superb, and great appreciation has been shown for this period home. Certain facilities were lacking though and rooms/corridors would need a little uplift (carpets/artificial flowers on landing etc.). We also did not have a telephone... More

We stayed at this hotel with our friends from Northern Ireland. We were impressed by the beautiful setting of the hotel in lovely countryside.

You need to experience the property to live the old world charm in a breathtaking location with perfect hosts. Though we stayed only a night due to business commitments would love to experience the hospitality of the owners.
