The Island View is wonderfully located just outside of Donegal, so it was very easy to zip into town. Our room was spacious, with an exceptional view. The beds were comfortable and cozy. Our hostess Bernadette was friendly and very informative about the area. Breakfast was delicious, this was a great way to start our adventures in County Donegal. There...

We had a great stay at Island View. Room was superb, quiet, clean and full Irish breakfast was delicious. Bernadette was very helpful with dinner advice. I would recommend a stay, one of our best on our two week trip to Ireland. Loved Donegal wish we had more time to explore!

Friendly hosts, a really nice clean room and a good breakfast. We felt welcomed at a good price. The b&b is just a couple of minutes away from town center and supermarket. Tip: go to the olde castle bar for tea.

We arrived at Island View House earlier than expected as my son caught a stomach bug & touring was out for the day. Michael was so kind in welcoming us on our early arrival and showing us our room. He also gave directions and suggestions for going into town and there were a number of brochures and such to check...
