We stayed here for one night towards the end of October and I wish we could've stayed longer. Even though its a few minutes (driving) from Donegal center it feels like its out in the country. The grounds are beautiful with rolling hills and sheep all over. The rooms were fully furnished and very cozy. There was a main sitting... More

Two poor nightsleep in room 103. Was dissapointed that I was not offered a change of room rather a matress topper. Room felt dated and Bed cover was grubby. Having said that host was friendly and polite, food we got was good. Nice spacious premises. Nice sitting room. Theresa gets a lot of 5 star ratings but for me it... More

Excellent gourmet dinner - definitely make a reservation! Wonderful hosts and a lovely setting. Bedrooms and sitting room are in a house just a few steps from the intimate restaurant, and all are comfortable and inviting. Peaceful and relaxing after a day of touring. Highly recommended.

This lovely guesthouse is only minutes from Donegal town, but you can feel the peace and calm as soon as you arrive. Rooms are comfortable and cosy and well appointed. The lounge area with gas fire is welcoming and well used. The breakfast in the front room very good too. A peaceful retreat from the road.

Theresa was very welcoming and very attentive to detail. The room was good and there were some nice touches. There is a lounge where you can relax and an honesty bar. Breakfast was excellent but we didn't get the opportunity to have dinner.
