This was a fantastic stay. Spotlessly clean, comfortable and lovely accommodation. Síle, the owner, was just fantastic. She was so friendly and very accommodating. Breakfast was amazing, so much top notch food. Completely set up for the day after the Gap Lodge breakfast. Fantastic across the board, would definitely recommend!!

Arrived later than expected and the welcome was very warm, the room was spotlessly clean and refreshments in room were more than adequate, beds very comfortable and added touch of electric blanket. Situated in a fantastic location. The breakfast is definitely the best breakfast I've ever had in regards to other places I have stayed throughout the world. Brilliant selection,...

This B&B is just wonderful. We were made to feel so welcome and Sheila, the owner was very accomodating and friendly. The rooms are a good size, the beds are comfortable and parking is free. The breakfast was out of this world. Fruit, yoghurt, cereal, pastries and then our choice of a huge range of delicious food from traditional bacon...

This is one of the nicest B&Bs we've stayed in. It is easily accessible from Donegal town and perfect if you're heading to the north of the county. The room was lovely and the breakfast was fabulous. We will be back and hopefully Sheila will have a vacancy for us.

We had 2 lovely nights in this B&B. Nice bedroom and breakfast, closed to Donegal downtown and a good location to visit main sites of Donegal county. Furthermore, Olde Castle pub was an excellent recommendation for the dinner We are looking forward to go again to Donegal and this B&B

We stayed here recently to accommodate a wedding in Harvey's Point. Location wise, it was situated on the main road 5/6 miles from the hotel. B&B was very clean and well looked after. It had the air of a immaculately kept family home. Breakfast was excellent and the owner very nice.

Breakfast (which was superb) is fresh and very tasty and is arranged around the time that suits you.
