“Marvellous”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Loretto and Roy were so fantastic. The room was spotless and very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. I wasn't well in the morning and Loretto was more than happy for me to stay a little longer while my friend visited Malin Head and came back for me later. Wonderful place with marvellous people.

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.

We stayed here 2 nights and we should have stayed longer. Loretto and Roy were brilliant and so was the breakfast! The room was clean and tidy and the bed was so comfortable.I would thoroughly recommend this B&B to anyone. The views are fantastic and on a clear day you can see fromPortrush to Londonderry, a distance of 55 miles!

The earlier reviews have got it ; Roy and Loretto are lovely hosts and make their home very welcoming to guests. From an offer of tea/coffee/herbal tea on arrival to fresh fruit salad with breakfast, they go the extra mile to meet the needs of visitors. By going the extra mile off the main road you get a super view over Lough Foyle and it is an ideal spot to while away some quality time. The local village of Greencastle has some excellent pubs and there are blue flag beaches, fishing and golf in the area.A very positive experience and a far better bet than local hotels, unless you want a bar or leisure facilities on site.

A lovely welcome from Loretta and Roy. There's a big hill to climb unless you get a taxi from Greencastle, but hey the view is spectacular...a sight I will never forget.

The facilities were good, the decoration inside was full of character and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Being cooked breakfast in the morning felt like you were at home with family.

Can't wait to go again.

We spend four fabulous days in the house of Loretta and Roy. I'll recommend this place highly. It surely makes the warm feelings I have for Ireland greater. I hope I will come there again.
