Ardara is a welcome stop, a lovely village. Do stop at Nora's Brae House B&B, it's small, comfortable, reasonable, easy parking and Nora looks after you like your own Mom. There's many good restaurants, pubs, Donegal tweed and craft shops within a 3 to 4 block walk. No need to stay in a big town. Everything is nearby, lovely hikes, drives and scenic coastline.
