The Cove Lodge B&B
Ranked #1 of 44 Donegal Town B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 October 2013

The Cove Lodge is such a lovely little B&B just mere minutes from Donegal city centre. Joan and Liam are a lovely couple who are wonderfully accommodating. My friend and I seemed to be the only people staying there at that time, so got first grade treatment from them both with suggestions of where to go, what to do and chats at breakfast.

The rooms are small and quaint but perfect for what we needed for one night on route from Galway to Belfast. The lodge is surrounded by stunning views (but I'm a bit biased as I've fallen in love with Ireland!)

Could not recommend a nicer place in Donegal.

No doubt many people stay in Donegal, but few will experience the great hospitality of Joan and her daughter Holly. A vey well presented B7B with excellent views of the Cove, the opportunity to stay here should not be missed. Thankyou. P&K from Oz

Liam and Joe was very welcoming host and their BnB is very close to Donegal city centre. We went to Donegal to visit Slieve League and its an ideal location to stay and visit the city. Rooms were clean and very comfortable with a well-served breakfast.

Wonderful experience at this B&B. Liam, the host, is a most pleasant and helpful person and is extremely knowledgable about things to see and do in the county. Beautiful building inside and out. Immaculate premises, comfortable beds, wonderful breakfasts. The B&B is located in a most picturesque setting and is just a few minutes drive from the town of Donegal. Would most definitely recommend staying at this lovely establishment.

Had a great stay at Cove Lodge. The room was very comfortable, the food great, and this is only a minute drive to Donegal Town. Even though the house is located just off the main road our room facing the road was very quiet. Our host also took the time to sit down with us and help us plan our days in Donegal. He gave us hints in our travels that maximized our experience, especially for visiting the Slieve League Cliffs.

Joan and Liam are lovely people and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We stayed there for one night and they made us feel so welcome. They also gave us great advice and recommendations on what we could do on our drive to Belfast. Thank you both!

Stayed for 4 nights and the host Liam and his wife Joan couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. It was an ideal location for us to tour Donegal on our motorbike. It was nice to see people so proud of their country and what it had to offer. We were given some great destinations and we weren't disappointed. Great breakfast and we will if we get chance be going back.
Rooms clean and comfortable, what more could you ask for
