Back at Martin’s again for 10 days. The fourth time at Hillcrest House we think that we now belong to the regulars. Travelling a good distance from a small town north of Hamburg/Germany we found „our place“ to stay in Donegal as we got introduced to the real irish hospitality and especially to „OurMartin“ (the owner) who is the prototype...

The B&B is spotless and comfortable and the food is top rate. Your getting your own personnel chef along with the room. The owner is very accomidating.and great fun. We decided to take a cooking class and had a blast. I will never stay anyplace else in Letterkenny. Run, don't walk to the Hillcrest House!

Martin Anderson, the owner of Hillcrest House B&B where I stayed for 3 nights, is a great chef and a great host! The Hillcrest House feels like a home, with big, overstuffed chairs in the cozy lounge, a bright dining room, and my en suite bedroom was clean and comfortable! I had read the reviews on TripAdvisor.com before my trip,...

This was the best bed and breakfast experience we had during three weeks in Ireland. Martin is the ultimate host, friendly and charming and he serves the best Irish coffee around. He's also a top chef who makes a great breakfast. I would recommend Hillcrest to anyone.

We called Martin the day of our intended arrival and he managed to fit us in, which we were very happy about as he had come highly recommended by a travelling salesman we met at another B&B. We have to agree with the salesman. This B&B is fantastic, and Martin runs a slick operation at breakfast time! Best breakfast we...

Me and my husband were looking for a good place to sleep near Letterkenny... and we find the best one!! Martin opened the door and received us with the hands open (That's how in Catalonia we say that he was so kind and nice... as his family!). Since we met him, we met the Irish kind people!

小さな民宿と言ったところ。 コックでもある男主人の一生懸命さが印象的。 何もかも男一人でやっているようで、清潔さなど いまいちなところもある。 食事も出すが味は普通。ただ気前がよく、量はものすごい。 場所は中心からかなり離れているので 車がないと難しいと思う。 とにかく一生懸命で、夕食に出た鰯の酢漬けを お土産にしたいと相談したら、買って来てくれた。
