The Bridges Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #17 of 44 Donegal Town B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We met Bernie at the restaurant in the harbor and from that moment on she took us under her wing! My husband and I along with our two daughters were treated like family. The Inn is immaculate, the breakfast is yummy cooked to order, th best part is Bernie and Steven. They are so kind and willing to take the time to explain the ins and outs of the town and nearby vicinity. We rented bikes from her next store neighbor's bike shop at a very reasonable price. We ended up staying an extra day because of our experiences. Can not stay enough positive about The Bridges!

Room Tip: The suites up front have a view of the two bridges as you lay in bed from big picture windows!

Cannot even begin to describe the hospitality Bernie and Steven showed my husband and me! The room was absolutely immaculate with the most gorgeous view over the river, the church across the street and of Donegal Castle! Donegal was the first stop in Ireland as we toured the country and I have to admit, we left a bit of our hearts there. I cannot express how warm and friendly Bernie and Steven are. We will never forget our stay with them!!!

Bernie and family are so warm and welcoming, they make you feel right at home in their lovely B&B. Rooms are CLEAN and the view is great (the river and Donegal Castle). Breakfast is the traditional Irish fare, if you wish (soooo delicious), but cereal, fruit, yogurt and a selection of breads is also offered. There is a comfortable, warm sitting room to relax and have a bit of tea or coffee in the afternoon. The location is great also...just a short walk across the bridge to the center of Donegal Town. Bernie is delightful and told us about places to see and things to do in the Donegal area. We couldn't have been happier with this charming place.

Double ensuite room was tiny, barely had enough space for luggage. Thankfully room was warm enough. It would have been nice to have hooks inside the bathroom and a bathroom mat too as tile floor was freezing after a shower. Very nice lady who provided lots of info about the area.

I'm a student and had such a great stay there with a friend for one night. Bernie and her family are so lovely and i was delighted to see so much kindness. Bedroom and bathroom were perfectly clean and cumfortable. Breakfast was great and included with a nice music giving energy in the morning. And the view ! It was beautiful to wake up and have a look over the window to see the bridges over the river. I've been adviced by Bernie to go and eat to The harbour restaurant, perfect!
The only ''bad" point would be i had difficulties to get the wifi in the room. But was not important because the stay was made perfect by Bernie. Thank you i will be back

Lovely, helpful couple run the place and are very welcoming. Great value rooms, 2 with en suite and 2 with shared bathroom. Nice warm place to stay on a budget. Great place, very central to town right across the river from the old castle and beautiful bridge.

The family were really lovely and Bernie is a really nice and friendly person. They made us feel so welcome and nothing was a bother. Bernie gave us some ideas on good places to eat, which turned out to be very good.
The rooms had great views and we gained information about the area from the family. I found the bathroom adaquate for an overnight stay. Plenty of hot water for our showers and two W.C. so no waiting if someone is having a shower. Comfortable beds for a good nights sleep. What else could you ask for? A fabulous breakfast and Donegal is a very pretty town and very friendly people. We enjoyed the night life alot, very relaxing.

Room Tip: Always sit on the bed when inspecting the room, a good nights sleep is very important.
