“Very enjoyable stay at Bunbeg House”
Reviewed 31 July 2009

Myself, wife and two children ( from Dublin ) have just spent a lovely week-end at Bunbeg House, Gweedore, and would highly recommend it to others . We had a really friendly welcome from Jean and Andy Carr - the proprietors .The rooms were clean and spacious - with constant hot water available in the ensuite toilets / showers and the beds really comfortable.Our room had a scenic view of the harbour and nearby hills. There is a lounge area which is ideal for a nice quiet read. We enjoyed a full Irish breakfast on hot plates - exactly as we like it - and the freshly baked scones with cream and jam for afternoon tea are a must! The service provided by Jean and Andy Carr was professional and friendly. The walk around the harbour with many different types of fishing boats to the new Irish coastguard building is enjoyable .There were lots of places of interest nearby for both us and two sons - such as Glenveigh National Park and several lovely sandy beaches and the exciting rib boat ride out to sea provided by Andy is a must for teenagers ! Bunbeg house is definitely a must for a friendly, relaxful and comfortable stay in a beautiful part of Donegal.

After travelling around Ireland for 3 weeks we came across this gem of a place.
We arrived quite late but was still made very welcome,and shown to our rooms they were tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean, It was so peaceful and comftable we slept like babies, The next morning it was a real pleasure waking up to the amazing view overlooking the most beautiful harbour, we do alot of traveling but have never woke up to views like that before, 'What a delight' During the days we visited as many of the great tourist attractions that we could, Then I would look forward to going back to bunbeg house and injoying tea and scones on the patio area overlooking the beautiful harbour
In the evening we injoyed eating in the bar area or the resturant where you could order very tasty sea food, 'fresh crab and Salmon, everyone was very friendly especcially Jean 'The amazing cook 'and Andy with whom we injoyed his company in the bar of an evening. And Great value for money, Cant wait to go back in August only this time I Will stay longer.

We arrived at Bunbeg house in the early evening hours of Saturday and were met inside by the owner. He directed us to our rooms on the second floor. The whole house was freezing and so were the rooms, where the doors and windows were wide open, while the outside air temperature was around 10 degrees celcius. We were told that because of the good number of bookings they had opened a week earlier than usual, hence the need to get some fresh air into the rooms. We imediately closed the windows and turned the radiators up, but there was no heating. The manager first had to go down and turn it on and after a while the radiators got warm. We left the freezing place for some food in a pub. Came back around 10pm and the rooms were still chilly, especially the one with a window that wouldnt close properly so you could hear the wind howling. The bathrooms were freezing since the heating didnt work there at all. Apart from this, the room was clean but it smelt musty and there was a dirty looking cover on the bed.
My dad was up at 3am and 6am for a toilet visit and at noticed that there was no heating on whatsoever. The forecasted night temperature was 0-3 degrees celcius and the room was absolutely freezing at this time. It came on for about an hour in the morning.
We went to get breakfast in the downstairs premises which were very cold and also unacceptably dirty. After knocking on a door a very young man dressed in a t-shirt and jeans came out to take our orders. In the meantime we we directed to the cereals which were poured into 4 different kinds of bowls with 4 different kinds of spoons. Half an hour later our hot breakfast arrived which included 3 pieces of burnt bacon, 2 wrinkled and burnt sausages, a fried egg and tomatoes. It was all served on a cold plate. We were met by the female owner to whom we expressed our views whereafter she put the heating on and moved us to a table closer to a radiator. All in all a very bad experience.

Great accomodation in a lovely setting right on the harbour.
The B&B was more like a hotel with plenty of space to move around - two lounges, small terrace and a bar. We booked out three rooms and all were a good size with large double beds, everything was very clean and tidy. Cereal and a freshly cooked breakfast was on hand to cure the Guinness hangovers!

I have just stayed in Bunbeg House with my wife and her family as a base for showing them the delights of Gaoth Dobhair, the nicest and most authentic part of Ireland.

The B&B is situated right on the harbour, about a 10 minute walk to the friendliest bar in the county (Huidi Beag's) and is a fantastic place to stay. The owers, Jean and Andy, are a wonderful couple, warm friendly and totally laid back. They made our holiday very special.
