We really enjoyed our stay at Bayview. Marian is a gracious and welcoming host. Her breakfasts of homemade breads, pancakes, and full Irish were outstanding. She also takes the time to introduce her guests to one another, saying where each group is from, which I thought to be a very kind gesture. We shared a large room with 3 extremely...

Mrs. Bennett build this house specifically for a B&B. The rooms are modern with large en suites. The beds are so comfortable that you will have a problem getting out of them! You will have a beautiful view of the ocean and enjoy a fabulous breakfast every morning.

Four of us stayed here recently. It's a kilometre or so from Ardara. This is a large modern B&B on a scenic site with ample parking. We were greeted with tea and scones in the sitting room. The spotless rooms were amongst the biggest and best we've seen in Ireland, with quality fittings and huge wardrobe space. The ensuites have...

My mom and I stayed at the Bayview Country House on our recent trip to County Donegal, Ireland. This B&B is literally just a 2 or 3 minute drive from the center of Ardara, and is easy to find with GPS or directions from Marion Bennett, the owner. Marian was an absolutely lovely hostess. She gave us recommendations for a...

My husband and I spend five lovely days with Marion Bennett. Her breakfast were wonderfully tasty. The room was large, the beds comfortable, the view amazing. One rainy afternoon we arrived back after touring and she had a fire going and tea to warm us. I spent the rest of the day snuggled with a good book in front of...

This was a very clean, very nice bed and breakfast. We stayed two nights. The food in the morning was excellent. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds had very nice linens. Downstairs there was a very large sitting.living room with a fireplace, and multiple couches and chairs, for relaxing. I highly recommend Marian's bed and breakfast.
