“A peaceful haven in the north of Donegal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2010

Lovely B&B with a superb view on the sea & a golf.
Very good welcome from Anne Marie and Grace.
Confortable bedroom and a friendly living room for guests.
Excellent breakfast.
Host who takes the time to speak with her guests.

We couldn't fault The Whins in any respect. Anne Marie and her mother made us feel really welcome and we enjoyed the lovely breakfasts they served up. Our room was very comfortable with everything we needed. The location is ideal for touring around some very beautiful scenery and very convenient for places to eat.

Must give a mention to gorgeous golden retriever Ozzie (kept away from guests unless they want otherwise!) and also to Anne Marie's delightful little boy (cant remember his name).

Would love to go back sometime to this lovely place.

The Whins has lots of character, and Anne Marie is a perfect host - friendly, informative, and helpful. Our room was comfortable and the bathroom well fitted out. There is a choice of well cooked breakfasts. The lounge overlooks the sea and was a relaxed way of meeting other residents. The Whins is just to one side of Dunfanaghy - it takes only 10 mins to walk into town. Well recommended.

Beautifully furnished rooms and a warm welcome from the owner, Anne Marie, set the scene for a great break for a birthday treat. Glorious walking in the area and a superb meal at the Mill Restaurant - I can recommend here for a completely stress free holiday. We even managed to leave a picnic bag behind and Anne Marie phoned to let us know she had it and sorted out its return to us. Great service - we'll be back!

We chose to stay at the Whins even though it was slightly out of our way because we wanted to see the area. Anne Marie's B&B is definitely quiet and comfortable. She had great recommendations for dinner. The room, sitting room, and dining room were all comfortable and there are beautiful views. We were disappointed in the bathroom. It was large and had the opportunity to really "sell" this B&B, but they chose to put in a shower that is so small you can barely move without pushing the door open. Really disappointing. Other than that, this was a comfortable and friendly B&B; breakfast is delicious and you could not find a better hostess.
