Nestled in the valley between Rachtion Mor and the Atlantic ocean on the Inishowen Peninsula the Glen house has something for everyone. It is a perfect location for lovers of history, hill walking, bird watching or just exploring the fantastic countryside and beaches on offer. We are within a 5 minutes driving distance from the renowned Ballyliffin championship golf club. We are a family run guest house with 9 en-suite bedrooms.

There is something deeply magical about the north of Donegal County! In a setting of breathtaking beauty, we cannot imagine a better place to stay than at Glen House in the loving care of Sonia, the proprietor. Our flight to Donegal was delayed from Dublin so we arrived at 11.30pm and Sonia was there to welcome us with tea and delicious pastries long after the normal check-in time. Over the 4 nights with her and the excellent staff, we felt more at home than in any similar accommodation we have ever stayed – and we are inveterate world-travelers! Sonia was just preparing for the formal opening of the Glenevin Waterfall Park which is a scenic 15-minute trail starting at Glen House along a brook and ending in a thrilling waterfall. Among her many friends are the owners of tourist

Dear Rosaleen, Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay with me here at the Glen House. I'm pleased to say that the waterfall did indeed open again at the beginning of June. You will have to make a return visit now to experience it !! I hope we do get the pleasure of your company again if you visit to the area. Many thanks, Sonia

We stayed at the Glen House our first night in Ireland. I was exhausted after the flight and then driving to Clonmany. The Glen House is a lovely old house and it's well appointed. Our room was spacious and clean. The breakfast room is a lovely bright room with lots of sunlight. The food was very good. It was one of the best Irish breakfasts we ended up having. I felt that it was a very good value. However, I'm the sort of person that would never choose a fancy hotel over a charming country inn like this. I prefer the unique and more interesting experience over the sameness that one experiences with large chains.

We had a lovely stay and Dorothy and her team looked after us very well. Well worth a visit and it is located adjacent to a lovely waterfall. We stayed 2 nights and it's a great location close to Malin Head.
