I loved the grand old house. The rooms were large and the beds super comfy. The dining room where we had breakfast, is spacious and the food was good. The wi-fi was not strong enough and none of the guests when we were there could connect. Yes it's an old house and it shows but its character and charm make...

We booked this because of the charming idea of staying in Ireland at a former chapel and on a huge estate. This place and location did not disappoint! If you need accommodation that is great for kids and pet friendly, then this is ideal self-catering with the option of cooked breakfasts in the main house. Really good value for money,...

10 years ago when we first stayed at Cavangarden House, we found it and the proprietress, Agnes, charming. When we returned a month ago, it was like being welcomed back home. Everything, including Agnes, is still there and just as comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring Donegal City, Ballyshannon, the Strand and Belleck.

This was our second stay at Cavangarden. We stayed one night last year and liked it so much that we went back this year, for 3 nights. You need a car, it is 3kms outside Ballyshannon. It is really quiet and surrounded by fields and horses. Breakfast is GREAT. You get to chose from the traditional Irish Breakfast, French toast,...

Arrived 31/07/14. Room #1. Very dirty/filthy. Dead flies and waste/dirt on floors, huge amount of dust on furniture's. Bulb defect in room. No bulb at all in lamp (exempt from mirror lamp) in bathroom. Handle to shower nearly fallen off - hanging in one loose screw. Irish Breakfast tasteless without any character. The worst during our holiday, where we stayed...

We travel to Ireland every year and stay at Agnes's home everytime. Her home is large and the rooms are spacious. The drive to the home thru beautiful woods and land.

We dropped over for a night here, it's quite away from the town and a 500m drive off the main road and through the park until you get to the old villa. A charming lady warmly welcomed us and showed us to our spacious room, two beds (one single, one double but small). We asked for the heating to be...
