We could not have enjoyed our stay with Sandra more! First of all the location was perfect. It's an easy walk to the beach from her house (literally right down the street), and she has an amazing view from the house. It was a 20 minute drive to Mt. Errigal and 30 minute (10 past Mt. Errigal) drive to Glenveagh...

We had a lovely welcome at Cara na Mara and were offered tea and scones on arrival. You are right in the middle of the Gaeltacht here (the Gaelic speaking part of Ireland) so expect to see the breakfast menu in Gaelic (with an English translation). We took advice for supper and headed to Teac Jack's Hotel, a short drive...

This is a fine modern house in a great location with views of the beach. We stayed for 6 nights in September. Sandra - the owner - is extremely helpful and welcoming. We're both vegetarian and I have a couple of food allergies but Sandra went beyond the usual in providing excellent alternatives to the standard breakfast for me. There...

Sandra was really welcoming, even making us tea and soda bread, and glasses of milk for the children, when we arrived late at night. Really lovely location with great views of the sea at breakfast time. Great breakfast, and the children were well catered for. Comfortable beds and great location. I can't fault this b&b and it was a really...

We stayed as a family of 4 for 5 nights at Cara Na Mara. The B&B was very comfortable and very close to the beach and pubs. There is wifi and the speed is good. Sandra was great with the kids and very accommodating in every way and gave us a very competitive price.

Myself and my wife stayed here for two nights when visiting Gweedore for a local wedding. The B and B is quite modern. The rooms were spotless and the host Sandra was really great. Breakfast was lovely and the dining room overlooks the beach. It is a short walk to the local pubs as the B&B is in the Village....

I can't recommend Cara na Mara highly enough. Perfect location, beautiful views, warm welcome and excellent value. Will definitely be back. Stayed in room 2 - a large room with two double beds and decent en suite. Better than many hotels I've spent a lot more in. Enjoy!

2 adults one child, stayed June 2014. Made feel very welcome by Sandra. Accommodation was perfect - close to the beach and village shops/pubs, with beautiful views from the bedroom. Lovely breakfast too, and overall great value for money - we intend to go straight back next time we are in the area. Thanks Sandra.

What a lovely B&B, of the 6 I stayed in whilst touring Ireland this was the cleanest, most comfortable, spacious, friendliest and most welcoming. It had a great location for what there is in Bunbeg and the owner was a lovely helpful lady, who recommended good sites to visit and good bars and places to eat.

All you need from a B&B and more. The location is probably the best among all in Bunbeg - just by the sea, slightly off the main road, in a walking distance from two pubs.
