Eas Dun Lodge
Ranked #7 of 44 Donegal Town B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2012

As we were going to a wedding at the nearby lough Eske castle, I was tasked with finding the accommodation.
And what a find!
Myself and two friends stayed in this glorious little oasis of peace and tranquility for 4 nights, this gave us a chance to explore Donegal before the wedding.
The owners of the Eas Dun lodge are a lovely couple called Anne and Patsy for whom nothing was too much bother.
On arrival Patsy gave us a tour of the house, and made us feel very welcome. Throughout our stay both Anne and Patsy were always helpful and friendly - but without being intrusive.
By the end of our stay we felt like family and were sad to leave!
The rooms were spacious, spotless and modern, tastefully decorated with stunning views and some lovely little touches - such as the kit Kat's along with the tea and coffee.
My two friends stayed in the room in the photo. My room, number 6, was equally as lovely.
I have been raving about Anne's breakfasts since I got back. Lots to choose from, my favourite being the Irish breakfast with my bacon done crispy, I only had to say it once and Anne remembered. Impressive in my book! A previous review mentioned no white pudding, I am certain if they had of mentioned that's what they wanted, then Anne and Patsy would have had it for them the next morning.
On the day of the wedding, Patsy insisted on driving us down to Lough Eske Castle - too far to walk in heels! Didn't hear of any other B&B owners doing this for their guests!
The only thing that might bother some is that it's a little bit off the beaten track. It certainly didn't bother us. There are lovely walks to go on - ask to borrow Millie the family dog, she's a pleasure to walk. If your into cycling there are plenty routes around the Lough. And the scenery is spectacular. Donegal town is only a couple of minutes drive away.
Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay. A huge thank you to Anne and Patsy. Keep doing what your doing!
Will definitely come and stay again.

It was a real pleasure to stay with Ann and Patsy. I say stay with Ann and Patsy, because that's what it feels like! We were made so welcome we felt like family. The B&B itself is lovely, it has large, bright and immaculate bedrooms and AMAZING showers. The views over Lough Eske are spectacular. The breakfasts were generous and gorgeous with lots to choose from and as a vegetarian my breakfast was just as well thought out as the carnivores. Ann and Patsy were kind enough to give us a lift on a few occasions too. I have no hesitations on recommending this B&B, not only because of its brilliant amenities, but because Ann and Patsy are two of the loveliest people in all Donegal. I will go back and stay again and very soon I hope.

We stayed here in July as we were attending an evening reception in nearby Harveys Point hotel.
Eas dun lodge ticked all the boxes, room was spacious and spotless as was en suite. Bed was very comfy and fresh. Tea and coffee making facilities, kit kats and bottled water in room. Patsy was very friendly and gave us and another couple a complimentary lift to the hotel which is about 2 miles away. I had a concern about getting back again but had no problem as there were still taxis outside hotel after 3am! Taxi fare 10 euro. We had a beautiful and filling breakfast next morning (cereal, fruit, cooked breakfast, toast, wheaten bread, tea or coffee) to set us up for the day. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone whether attending a wedding or passing through Donegal. Thanks Anne and Patsy for everything.

Ann was helpful beginning months before our trip when we were making arrangements. She helped us make reservations both via email and phone. Patsy welcomed us warmly the evening of our arrival. We had two comfortable, spacious, and immaculately clean rooms. Our room had black out blinds, a real treat this far north in the late spring/summer time! The B&B is tucked into a rural area that is quiet with stunning views over the lake. We did not have time to go hiking, but if you can stay for a few days, this looks like a terrific area for walking. Nearby is a large hotel that has great food for dinner. Breakfast was delicious and filling, a perfect start to a long day's drive for us! We definitely recommend the Eas Dun Lodge.

We recently returned from a 10 day trip to Ireland. Two of those days were spent at Eas Dun Lodge. It is a little off the beaten track, but the views are worth it. The house itself was extremely clean with large rooms. The beds were super comfortable and great pillows. It was quiet at night with no traffic noise at all. Ann went out of her way to be helpful, even going so far as to doing some laundry for us. She also booked a trip for us to see the Slieve League cliffs by boat. Her breakfasts were well prepared and tasty. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you!!
