Home from Home - that’s how we make you feel when you stay with us! The River House is a multifaceted accommodation on the Wild Atlantic Way located in the Northern Headlands in the town of Dungloe. Conveniently placed on the N56 and a two minute walk from a vibrant main street but with the sounds of the River to lull you, we make you feel like family with excellent customer service and care. On site free parking, free WiFi, Netflix, USB ports, emergency care packs - even laundry service and bike rental. Everything is designed to make your stay comfortable and worry free. We are on hand to help you get the very best from the Wild Atlantic Way experience. To make memories you never dreamt of; to delve deeper into the area and to connect with nature and wander off the beaten track. If you want to try pulling your own pint of Guinness; climb a sea stack; ride along the beach; pet a lamb or make a loaf of Irish bread - come and stay and see why we are ‘Simply more than a B&B’

Joe, thanks so much for the great review, we do try very hard to make people feel at home, without feeling like they are in 'our' home. You are absolutely right there are no stunning views outside our front door but a few minutes either...More
