This bed and breakfast is set in amazing scenery. We got a very friendly welcome. The room was clean and spacious. We were treated to a wonderful breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

This is such a lovely B&B. Incredible value for money, it is spotlessly clean and super-comfy, with lots of amenities in the rooms. Sile is so warm and welcoming, and the full Irish breakfast is amazing, so tasty and generous, plus Sile bakes her own bread, including gluten-free. The only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

The hostess owner was a delight as well...very personable and anxious to help with information about the area. Although the Gap Lodge is not in town (On the main road...

Excellent stop on our tour of the Irish coast. We stayed during the off season for just one night, but the warm welcome and conversation we received made me wish we could stay longer. Absolutely gorgeous place and right along a desolate stretch of the highway between Northern Ireland and Donegal.

stayed here last minute at the weekend as we were playing for a wedding in Harvey's Point. Sile was welcoming, kind, knowledgable and just a very sweet lady.

Recently stayed at the Gap Lodge in Donegal with a friend and loved it! The hosts are welcoming, breakfast was great, and the B&B has a very homey vibe. Sile was able to offer great advice for the area as well! The B&B is located a little ways (5-10 min depending on your Irish driving skills) from 'Downtown' Donegal, very...

We only stayed one night at the Gap Lodge but it was excellent....a great location just outside of Donegal in a quiet country setting. The room was good sized for the three of us and there was lots of parking on site. The place is very clean and has a nice sitting room at the front. The breakfast was excellent...
