“Irish Hospitality At It's Very Best!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Upon arrival Mrs. McCleary offered us a cup of tea served in china cups and saucers in here cozy "lounge". She was very welcoming and offered information about local sights. My partner asked how he could get some golf balls from the local golf club and the next morning she presented him with two from the Letterkenny golf club compliments of her husband, Joe! She also served the "best" full Irish breakfast. We stayed at five different B&Bs in Ireland and each one served different amounts. Some served one egg and one piece of bacon. Mrs. McCleary served two eggs and "four' pieces of bacon! We had planned to stay for only one night and changed it to two. As far as I'm concerned this is the best B&B in Ireland! The only downside is that we compared all the other B&Bs to this one and none of them measured up!

Room Tip: Just show up at Glencairn!

I felt at home in this B&B ! Maureen and her husband were very friendly, caring and helpful (I travelled alone so I truly appreciated their help), the room was confortable, big enough, and perfectly clean. I loved the delicious breakfast with a beautiful view. All this for a small price !
I hope I'll be able to go there again ! (and by the way, Letterkenny is small but very quiet and beautiful).

my husband and i stayed in this homely b+b on saturday night 04/05/2013,it was very last minute and everything in letterkenny was booked up but some other b+b gave me this lovely ladies number.she answered straight away and was able to tell me straight away that she had a double room available without flapping about late notice.she gave me great directions to her place and when we arrived she was waiting for us showed us straight to our room and offered to help with directions to anywhere we were going.When we came back after our night out the room was lovely and warm and peaceful and quiet,i never heard a noise from the rest of the house all night.breakfast was served as soon as we sat down and everything came all together,( no waiting on toast or tea) and it was lovely.We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable there and no preasure to get out in the morning.We will stay here again as the house was lovely and clean and the lady of the house Maureen was just that a lovely lady.

We called at the last minute and were easily accomodated. Maureen was really helpful and friendly and the room was just fine. We were headed to Glenveagh National park and it was only 25-30 minutes from the visitor center. The room was nicely done and just right for our needs. We were close to the town as well as we had to head back in for Dinner shopping and church. It was well situated. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful.

We spent one enjoyable night here with very friendly Maureen and her husband. They made us feel at home and suggested a nice place to eat just up the road. The breakfast was made to order with generous portions. We enjoyed the lovely garden and view. Rooms were clean and plenty of hot water in the shower. Free wi-fi was appreciated. Would stay there again.
