This B&B is relatively remote but what a lovely area & establishment it is on St. John's Point. My room, with comfy bed, had a beautiful view of McSwyne Bay and castle ruins which kept me mesmerized. I took advantage of the common lounge area with unimpeded views of the bay for work on my computer and access to the "honor bar". The staff and owners are delightful and the breakfast delicious. The only down side, dinners are only served when there are group bookings. One must fen for one's self after breakfast in an area void of restaurants close by.

My wife and I were part of a group of ten artists from the Philadelphia area, USA, staying at Castle Murray House for a week in late May. The feeling of the place is warm and friendly in a relaxed setting. One hears only distant sheep and cows. Our group had the entire hotel and amenities at our disposal. The chef/owner Peter serves outstanding meals and there is a cozy bar for later camaraderie and conversation. Beautiful views of the seascape, castle and farmland were perfect for our painting group. We also got to meet some of the locals. Best stay ever. Best scones you will ever taste. R&S, Riverton, NJ.

A group of fifteen of us stayed for 4 nights for a friend's birthday. The location is stunning with an ever changing view over a wide expanse of Donegal bay. If there are more than 10 people the chef will provide dinner which we had every night. The food was superb; freshly cooked (so could be slightly slow but that is a good fault) and beautifully presented. Patrice the manager could not do enough to help and all the staff were utterly charming. The rooms are well appointed and clean and the beds and pillows comfortable. Throughly recommend this hotel.

A cool young couple own this place and have added lovely touches to show their appreciation. The place feels like it's private to you. You can enjoy a drink from the honesty bar and watch the stars, they even supply blankets. The rooms are renovated to high modern elegant standard. Had the best nights sleep in a luxury bed. The breakfast was incredible. Everything was fresh, locally sourced organic and homemade even the bread and jam. Great selection. They even could cater to gluten and dairy free. Great walks or snorkeling or diving at St John's Point. Beautiful place. Would highly recommend to any couple or family wanting a great stay. We will be back
