Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The most accommodating place to stay in Dungloe. The place is well-kept. Very cozy and homey place. Clean and comfortable rooms. Located near the major establishments. Nice staff and a very wonderful and amazing owner, Jack! Would love to come back again soon and will recommend to friends who will be visiting the area.

We were upgraded here after booking the hostel next door, and Jack made our stay so comfortable and welcoming from the get go. We were given a 6 person room between 3 of us which was clean comfortable and cosy. When we asked where we could go for food, Jack offered to make us up a portion of pasta bolognoise which was such a treat and so delicious. Great location and very much a home from home with a brilliant host. Highly recommended!

The River House is very well located, next to shops, sea front, river walk, bus stop. The room was nice, clean and confortable. The owner Jack is really friendly, helpful and give good advices about the things to see around. We recommend Jack's Irish Breakfast, you will not need to eat until the evening 😉 At The River House you really feel like home, this is definitely the best place to stay !

Clean and friendly, Jack looked after us from our initial phone call, showing our large family a very affordable family room, all the way through to the breakfast that filled us for the day. We highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.

Ideal place to stay if looking to explore the surrounding area. Mount Errigal, Glenveagh National Park, Burtonport Ferry to Aaronmore Island are all within short driving distance from the B&B. Dungloe main street is 2 to 3 minute walk from the B&B. Very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. We stayed two nights and the service was excellent - free laundry, very nice breakfast served each morning (Irish fry, vegetarian option available). Triple room was very comfortable and spacious. Car parking available. Would definitely stay again if re-visiting Dungloe.

Stayed here for a few nights in August while in the area. This was one of the only places dog friendly available on our dates. It was fantastic. Ticked all the boxes. The dog was made as welcome as us all. Highly recommend. Thanks. We will be back.

Just returned from an absolutely brilliant stay at the River House Hotel. After a long journey, there was a very warm welcome from Jack. There was a real warm atmosphere as soon as we set foot in Reception. Our rooms were allocated and perfect for our stay. Jack provided us with some local tourist information, the weather forecast and most importantly where to have dinner ! Breakfast was excellent, service was first class with a smile. Nothing was a bother. Perfect Irish Hospitality. Thank you Jack for a fantastic stay - we will certainly be back and look forward to your full Irish !

We are just back from a great trip to Donegal. 2 adults and 2 kids. We stayed in The River House and can't recommend it enough. It is 100% a home from home and Jack and the other staff are so welcoming. Being only a few mins walk from the main street and sea, the location is great. The room we had was big and absolutely spotless clean. Breakfast was delicious too. We would definitely recommend the River House and would love to take a trip back there again.
