First off, John is second to none when it comes to making his guests feel comfortable. He was kind enough to pick me up from the bus station as well as drop me off when it was a rainy day.
The room at Dun Na Si itself was clean, spacious and quiet, which was perfect for me as I had just done a lot of running around in Dublin previously.
The breakfast spread was phenomenal-- on top of the cereal, fruit, croissants, toast, juice and coffee, John had all the fixings for an Irish Breakfast! Since it was a quieter weekend at the guesthouse, John and I had a lovely conversation while I ate and offered me some tips for what to do in town (which was about a 15 minute walk).
As far as Ballyshannon goes, I had a few drinks at Sean Og's as well as dinner and wine at The Limit, both of which were affordable and a great people-watching atmosphere.
If you're looking to book with John, I would suggest reaching out directly via phone or email-- he is incredibly responsive and it often benefits you in terms of room rate.
All in all, if I ever find myself in Ballyshannon again, I will certainly be back!More
