...but the hair dryer in my room is a fire hazard - the fact that Marie knowingly provides it to guests when it is in such need of replacement is a shame. The breakfast was the least impressive of all the B&B's I stayed in...More

About
Description
Marie McGowan has been welcoming guests into her home in this idyllic location on the shores of Donegal Bay since 1991.This spacious, modern town house is delightfully situated beside the historic old Abbey of More Donegal Town [est.1474] and is surrounded to the South & West by the waters of Donegal Bay. From here, it is just a mere 5 minute walk into the centre of town.Marie takes great delight in pampering her guests, with her speciality breakfast of locally caught salmon, smoked and served with all the trimmings. Other options include her perfectly cooked full Irish fry, freshly prepared fresh fruit platters and her own unique style of porridge (family recipe).The Water’s Edge is an approved establishment of Bord Failte Ireland. • All rooms en suite • All rooms have TV/Electric Blankets/ Hair Dryers • Tea & Coffee making facilities are also available • Overlooking Donegal Bay & 15th Century Abbey Ruins • Quiet, peaceful location yet within 5 minutes walk of town centre.Not only do visiting guests leave The Water’s Edge feeling completely satisfied, but the ducks & swans who spend their time lazily drifting up and down the Bay are well catered for too!
