We were fortunate to have been referred to this property while in Greencastle for a wedding and after reading the TripAdvisor reviews, we were looking forward to our stay. Other reviewers raved about the luxury of the accommodations and the wonderful view and the great breakfasts (especially the Irish Fry) and all of that was true. But what made our stay truly exceptional was the personal care and attention we received from Roy and Loretto. They went out of their way to make us feel at home in their home and we really appreciate everything they did for us. We regretted having to leave when the weekend was over and we will definitely return when we are next in Donegal. As an example of their exemplary hospitality, Loretto went to a significant amount of trouble to ship us some of our belongings that we had inadvertently left behind. I can't imagine that anyone else would have done what she did. Our belongings were returned to us the next day, and they were vitally important to the next leg of our trip.
We enjoyed chatting with Roy and Loretto over tea and we feel like we made some new friends.
Ask them about their family and get Roy to share his experiences as a Division 1 footballer with Norwich. Fascinating! And on top of that, Roy was a scratch golfer.
Great people, a great place and a great weekend! If you're anywhere near Greencastle, stay there. You won't be disappointed.
