“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Roseleen was amazing. She caters to what you want (giving us a wide option of breakfast choices besides the traditional Irish breakfast) and sat and spoke with us about culture, things to do, and the town itself. The house is immaculate and updated with private bathrooms.

Roseleen makes a B&B stay more than a knotch above the rest. My sister and I arrived late and tired after a long day of biking from Glencolmcille. Roseleen would not even hear of us putting our bikes away but took that on herself. She had prepared fresh scones for us and even chilled our wine. The room was very large, spotless and exceptionally appointed. Her breakfast room is a welcoming solarium and the meal most certainly does not disappoint with everything fresh and homemade. She even spoiled us with a made to order fresh fruit salad. Thank you Roseleen for a wonderful stay!

We visit Glenties every year for a set dance weekend. The first booking we make each year is Lisdanar. Rosaleen is the best host ever, accommodating every requirement. The breakfasts beat me and I can eat for Scotland and "The wee surprise in your your room tonight" was a muffin which was home baked and delicious after an evening dancing. From the welcome to the farewell everything is first class.

Room Tip: We get the same room every year so don't know about the others. I'm willing to bet they are...

Rosaleen is the perfect hostess with the best B&B you could expect to encounter in Ireland. Of the 5 we stayed in during our travels, Lisdanar House sets the standard for excellence. From room size and cleanliness to a teriffic breakfast Rosaleen provides the best of what travelers want and expect. Our next visit to Ireland will certainly include a repeat visit to Lisdanar house. Rosaleen gets a strong "Atta Girl" for her friendliness and her management of the B&B. Thank you for a great experience.

Room Tip: Big guys can fit into the showers! Not so at most B&B's but Lisdanar House does it right.

Rosaleen went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable in her beautiful home. The breakfasts were delicious and bountiful! Rosaleen was so helpful in suggesting sites to see and places for dinner. I highly recommend this B& B!

We stayed in this B&B bicycling the northwest part of Ireland. This was the best place we stayed during our vacation ( and I am including the places we stayed in at Dublin and Paris).

Roseleen, the owner, seems to go that extra mile to see that her guests are comfortable and all needs attended to. The rooms themselves are larger than your typical B &B bedroom sizes, and the food is perfect. Really, this place is a gem, and even if you are not in the immediate area, it may be worth the time to get to the area to stay here.

Room Tip: Just ask Roseleen. She's wonderful and knows what she is doing and knows the value of customer s...
