Riversdale Country House B&B
Ranked #23 of 286 County Donegal B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Of the several B&Bs we visited in Ireland, this is probably the best one to date. This 19th century house built among acres of land , set back away from the main road, has been renovated in style. the decoration is immaculate, the bedroom impeccable, the bathroom of luxury standard worthy of a five star hotel. All this is matched by Sharon' s warm sense of hospitality and friendliness, so typical of Ireland. A lovely cream tea was with scones was offered to us when we arrived and breakfast was served in the family porcelain plate set. A memorable stay.

My husband and I traveled with my adult nieces and we all agree that this B&B was one of
our favorites. The setting is beautiful. It is a very modern home with spacious rooms and
large ensuite baths. The breakfast was delicious! They served cooked to order food with a wonderful self serve fruit salad. The dining table was set with lovely china.
The family was lovely and were very helpful with information. We had never been to Donegal before, and it is beautiful!
You would be wise to book this place, you would not be sorry!

I booked this for an overnight stay for parents last summer. They really enjoyed their stay and found Riversdale to be a very high standard B & B accommodation. Hostess very friendly and helpful. Breakfast served on vintage style china. A great base for north Donegal :)

Riversdale Country House is a wonderful and inviting place to stop.

Its a fantastic place to stay, clean and welcoming to all.
The room was amazing and the breakfast in the mornings were out of this world, fresh and so much choice to eat, we were definitely set up for the day ahead of photography.
The location for this B&B is in a prime position for the sea-coast and landscape photography, it is indeed a paradise for walkers, photographers and a wide variety of outdoor activities.

We will be visiting Donegal again next year for a longer stay, and hope to catch up with Sharon and Wilson.

Thank you for a beautiful stay.

This is a quite place for rest and relaxation. Also, this is a very good spot as a base to explore the peninsula.
The owners gave us a very homey feeling and the place itself is just great: the rooms are very high quality and with a lot of amenities. Breakfast was very good also.
We had such a good time there, so when we found out we have a few extra days at the end of our trip, we drove 3 hours just to get there again.

This was our first B&B stay as a family ,we usually go self catering, we were totally spoilt by the friendliness of the host and her family not to mention the tea and scones and wonderful breakfast. Myself,husband,and teen daughter shared the 'family room', there was still room for another person,as room held four (2 single beds and a double) and the room was still spaceous. The ensuite was also large with a great shower.very modern,clean facilities in a beautiful large farmhouse set in beautiful countryside,with a nice long lane for a dander,with donkeys,ducks a goose and fields of cows,not to mention the adorable Jessie ,their pet dog,the pet calf and sheep!This was a very economical stay for us as usually 3 'adults' cannot stay in one room anywhere else we have tried in the uk have age restrictions ,usually 16 or less(our daughter was 17)
Ideally situated in the middle of Innishowen and lots of tourist leaflets available to plan our activities. Loads of places to eat especially recommend the Butterbean in Carndonagh and the cosy cottage cafe in Moville. We visited the famine village which was absolutley amazing! And Fort dunree is also a fascinating place to visit.

Room Tip: The family room and another room are downstairs so ideal if you have a pram or have restricted mobil...

That's how it felt when we pulled up to the house. Sharon greeted us and right away we were planning the rest of our vacation in County Donegal. Jessica's review covered all the details and we totally agree. The house is beautiful, the room was spacious, quiet, clean, and very comfortable. The dining room/sitting room was perfect for getting to know the other guests and to swap stories while munching on homemade cake and tea. Where Sharon was especially helpful was in steering us to a pub that had traditional Irish music. That led to one of the best musical experiences ever, with musicians from the Fiddle Convention having a session, jamming with each other. The magical vibe was contagious - all the people in the pub were infected. We came home very late and they left the light on for us. We highly recommend this B & B as a great example of Irish hospitality.
