I travelled with my girlfriend on motorcycle to Donegal. I had been recommended the waters edge b&b by others. we stayed one night.
The B&B is so peaceful, picturesque and is right on the waters edge. The rooms are clean and modern. The owner is very pleasant and friendly. The breakfast was beautiful. You have access to complimentary tea/coffee and hot chocolate all the time in the breakfast room. It is only about 5 minutes walk into the town centre. (We walked in to the town and had a meal in ''The Harbour Restaurant'' which was lovely).
There is a super valu shop about 3 minutes walk from the B&B.
Perfect B&B, will definitely return.
