The best B&B we have ever stayed in and it's all credit to the lovely owners Mary and Hugh who were extremely helpful with everything and made us feel at home from the very start. Beautiful house and nice breakfast served every morning with delicious homemade bread! Lovely location too with stunning views.

By far the best B&B I have stayed in. Mary & Hugh made us feel so much at home and with two kids under two it was not easy for us. But with their help, our stay was most enjoyable. Bedrooms are beautiful and modern and spotless. Homemade breakfast and Mary's own brown bread was to die for. Top class...

Glenties itself is a great base from which to tour Donegal. Make sure to check out the fabulous trad music at Glen pub – on the...

Avalon B&B is a wonderful place to stay. Having arrived you are welcomed by Mary and her husband Hugh with coffee and self-made cake or bread. The rooms are modern and lovely, the breakfast so rich as almost everything is home-made by Mary. There is a 24-hour-service we have not experienced elsewhere. Corina and Thomas from Germany

My partner and young son just came back from our trip away. We stayed one night with Mary and Hugh and could not speak more highly of them. From the moment we arrived our hosts made us feel so welcome. The room was perfect with everything you could need plus free WiFi! The ensuite bathroom was also great. Before we...

“I believe every room is quiet and bright..since they are all separated from the main part of the house by a closed full glass door and a long hallway. The linens and towels are lovely and plentiful.”
