We stayed at this property for 4 nights and it was not long enough! Usually we average about 2-3 nights when staying at Bed and Breakfasts but this time we could have easily stayed a week. Owen and Mary Elizabeth are the epitome of excellent hosts. The house is absolutely amazing and the breakfasts were second to none. If we...

100% welcome from exceptional hosts. The experience took me back 35 years to when I last experienced the kind of irish welcome that we were once so famed for, That too was in Donegal. Cleanliness,food, location, welcome and value for money all first class.Recommend to everybody.

Thank you Mary and Eoghan, An amazing house, a brilliant infusion of space between a family home and guest space. Beautiful food, exquisite detail and total relaxation. A fine combination. Mary and Eoghans patter and banter make you feel at home. The ships sailed up the Foyle, the sun shone, we slept, ate and read. We will be back!

We stayed over for a wedding at the nearby Redcastle Hotel. Mary and Owen could not have been more welcoming, spectacular scenery and a great breakfast. Lots of little touches made the stay special, Mary dropped us round to the reception and there's fully stocked fridges by the rooms for anything you might need.

A great place to stay, friendly and helpful hosts. Modern and spacious with a great view. Many little details indicating how thoughtfully things were done. It was off the main road but there were many signs so it was easy to find

A very friendly welcome from Mary. We stayed there three nights and every morning she gave us good irish breakfast and helpful tips for daily trips. The room was very comfortable and brightly with the relaxing area and an amazing view on the sea. We reccommend warmly this beautiful B&B!
