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.

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.
