We stayed here the night before our Ireland Top to Bottom Cycle Challenge. The venue was excellent for that purpose. Elma looked after the support staff and cyclists so well. From quick replies and easy communication (phone and emails), to payment via PayPal, to the clean and comfortable rooms, secure bike storage and great breakfast. She also popped out chairs...

As part of a week long tour round North West Ireland we stayed here for one night. Everything was entirely satisfactory, and Elma, the landlady, was very friendly and helpful. Despite the howling September gales and rain, we felt very much at home, and would certainly recommend this B&B. Also try the food at the Seafood Tavern restaurant just down...

My husband and I stayed one night but we wanted to stay longer! We were the only guests in the whole house welcomed with a peat fire in the lounge and tea and coffee. Our room was delightful. Spotlessly clean terribly comfortable bed with thick memory foam topper. En suite was fresh and well maintained. The owners live next door...

We are so glad we decided to drive a bit out of the way to check out this part of Ireland. Secondly, stay here. Seriously, don't even think twice. Before...

Malin Head View B&B is my favorite place in all of Ireland. I was so happy to return after my first visit three years ago. Elma and Donald have the highest standard in the presentation of their B&B.
