The breakfast was out of this world. Fruit, yoghurt, cereal, pastries and then our choice of a huge range of delicious food from traditional bacon... More

This is one of the nicest B&Bs we've stayed in. It is easily accessible from Donegal town and perfect if you're heading to the north of the county. The room was lovely and the breakfast was fabulous. We will be back and hopefully Sheila will have a vacancy for us.

We had 2 lovely nights in this B&B. Nice bedroom and breakfast, closed to Donegal downtown and a good location to visit main sites of Donegal county. Furthermore, Olde Castle pub was an excellent recommendation for the dinner We are looking forward to go again to Donegal and this B&B

We stayed here recently to accommodate a wedding in Harvey's Point. Location wise, it was situated on the main road 5/6 miles from the hotel. B&B was very clean and well looked after. It had the air of a immaculately kept family home. Breakfast was excellent and the owner very nice.
