“The definition of hospitality”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

This was the best B&B we stayed in during our entire trip to Ireland. We were a bit dubious as it looked a bit crammed from the outside but on the inside we were greeted with tea and scones and a lovely wee room that was just perfect. The breakfast was to die for and well worth our little trip through Donegal. A nice detour we were glad we made.

This is absolutely fantastic place to stay. The b&b is very small, but because of that also very cozy. Our room was tiny, with tiny bathroom, but we got everything we needed. The room and the bathroom was spotless clean and I have to say I've never seen hotel room clean like this lovely b&b.

The breakfast was also gorgeous and I was spoiled with delicious pancakes as a dessert.

I highly recommend this b&b to travellers who want to know what is Irish hospitality - 100%.

I pulled into Glenties late (the sun stays up well past 9 in May) and was met by Mrs. Brennan who guided me to their secure car park and made sure I was comfortable. The room was great. Outstanding wi-fi, a comfortable bed, and an invigorating power shower. I had an excellent dinner down the way at the local hotel, and enjoyed the football match at Kenny's. The Brennan's gave excellent directions and were extremely helpful. Do watch for the crystal bowl of chocolates on the mantle -- a nice touch, but one can be tempted to eat too many :-). This is a great location from which to tour the northwest coast of Ireland, including the weaving/knitwear center of Ardara. Great location, attentive hosts, enjoy your stay at Brennan's.

Accomodation is superb and breakfast is what you dream of. The only thing that the Brennans cannot supply is good weather. A very pleasant 2 days and the only sunshine in miserable April weather. Thanks again for the magnificent experience.

We had such a wonderful stay at Brennan's B&B and Mr & Mrs Brennan and Michael were the most geniune and friendly hosts, going out of there way to make our stay a memorable one! The location is ideal and Glenties is a lovely wee town, a must stop and a great base if you want a cosy B&B when visiting Donegal.

Stayed here on business and could not have had a better experience. The Brennan's continuously went above and beyond during my stay, giving me lifts to the neighboring town (I didn't have a car), making me dinner, offering to do my laundry, etc.

The rooms are really nice, clean, and warm (a true luxury in Donegal in November), private enough, and afford all the necessary ammenities. There is even tea, bottled water, heating pads on the bed, etc. The breakfast is quite well done as well. Anything you want they will make you! I have stayed in hotels and B & B's all over the world and the "go out of your way to help someone" hospitality I found here was something truly memorable.

absolutly loved our stay @ Brennans, Real homely feel. Mr and Mrs Brennan are the best hosts especially after our stressful journey from the south of ireland. The location is perfect, smack bang in the middle of the beautiful glenties town which is the hub to travelling around donegal. if your passing through be sure to take a night and stay at Brennans. I have stayed in many a 5* hotel around the world but the hospitality that we recieved at Brennans was 10*. Clean,freindly,quiet,central location and very knowledgable hosts.
