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.
