The Cove Lodge is not only in the perfect location by Town of Donegal, but it's a short drive to the Giants Causeway and many other beautiful locations. Amazing hosts, amazing breakfast, beautiful B&B and great breakfast! I can't say enough great things!

One of the best B&B's I've stayed at.Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Liam, Joan and the entire family are lovely, cannot do enough to help. The food is excellent, make sure you ask for their Black Pudding...its the best!!!!! Definitely will return. Michael & Sarah

My husband and I stayed at the Cove Lodge in August 2014 for two nights. We met a very nice, kind and welcoming family . The B&B was very good. Bedroom and dining room were very clean, warm and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and suitable for my husband celiac disease.

My wife and I stayed at the Cove Lodge B&B in September and it was superb. Liam and his whole family made the stay comfortable. The accommodations were top notch, the breakfast was superb and our hosts were friendly to boot. We loved staying here.

Room was neat and clean. Liam, the owner,seemed a bit harried and was anxious for us to pick a time for breakfast the next morning. Apparently they had a full house needed to schedule and rotate the guests. All this was curious as when we arrived at the appointed time in the morning there was one other couple and 6... More

Donegal is spectacular....and so is this bed and breakfast. The hosts were just wonderful---very kind about letting us check in a little later than usual. Our room was beautiful, nicely appointed, comfortable and quiet. And the food delicious. Joan and Liam gave us PERFECT suggestions for local fun, both touring and places to eat.
