“Charming and competent hosts!”
Reviewed 13 November 2011

This home is very lovely, and the hosts are gracious, welcoming, friendly and helpful. Breda's husband came to rescue us up as we were hopelessly turned around in Donegal Town, guided us to their gorgeous home. They went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. Breda has a great sense of humor, and also cooks a mean Irish breakfast. She is easy to talk to, and gave us good tips on where to go, what to see. Weather was raining and chilly, but we felt at home. I recommend this lovely home to any and all travelers...even the Blue room. Quite comforting, actually. Thank you both for a lovely stay in your beautiful home.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Blue room and found it to be tranquil.

The pictures don't do it justice, Heeney's Lodge is a fantastic place to stay. Rather than pay the extortionate prices of the Lough Eske Castle Hotel whilst attending a family Wedding there, we booked into Heeney's lodge and where never so glad we did. Within Walking distance (although there is an all night taxi service available) of the Castle itself, the Owners and their family were an absolute joy to stay with, the service was second to none, and the rooms where amazing.

Other family members where staying in various other B&Bs in Donegal Town, and none of them came even close to Heeney's Lodge, our room was 4x the size of any of theirs, cheaper, breakfast was served longer, and checkout was later. Not to mention we even had an en suite bathroom whilst all our other friends and family had shared bathroom facilities.

We definately look forward to a return visit in the near future.

Scott and Karen

Room Tip: Book early to avoid disappointment, but the room we stayed in slept up to 4.

My fiancé and I stopped for a night in this B&B. We wouldn't stay in B&B's too often but we were very happy with our choice. The room was huge and clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was great and the owner is really nice and helpful. I would certainly recommend it if you're in that part of the world. A very nice part of Ireland too I should add.

My wife and I stayed at Breda's Heeney's Lodge for three nights on 9th, 10th and 11th of august 2011.
Despite earlier reviews we found the house quite easily and Breda welcomed us with a choice of rooms. The Blue Room that we chose is on the ground floor and is beautifully furnished and epuipped with a double and single bed, two comfy armchairs and an en-suite.
The breakfast was plentiful and very scrumpcious with a choice of cereal followed by a 'Full Irish' or pancakes with toast or Brown soda Bread.
We felt very welcome and Breda does all she can to make you comfortable with great success.
It is a very nice 'Home from Home' in pleasant surroundings and very convenient to Donegal Town.
Thank you Breda, we will try to come back soon.

Room Tip: They are all good.

Thanks Breda for a most wonderful stay in Donegal. Your home was so very warm and inviting. You provided a great room, a yummy breakfast and truly a delightful stay at Heeneys Lodge.
The 3 ladies are sending our best wishes to you and your family for a bright future for each of you.

Just returned from a three night stay at The Heeneys Lodge. Breda and her mother could not have been more welcoming whether on the telephone before we arrived or during our stay. Our room was lovely, loads of space, comfortable beds and pillows and very clean. There were also 3 comfy armchairs if you had time to spend in your room! We didnt as there was so much to see and do around the area. The Lodge is only a few minute drive from Donegal town so was handy for the town but was set out in the lovely countryside and was very peaceful. Breakfast would set you up for the whole day and was plentiful in supply my daughter said she will now expect the same at home!
We loved it and would book there again. If you are a wedding guest at Harvey's Point or Lough Eske Castle and can't afford their prices then Heeney's is only just down the road. We had a wedding at the Castle and rang for a taxi to take us there following the church service. It came withing 5 minutes and cost about 7 euros. The castle rang for a taxi after the reception took about 10 mins and still only cost 7 euros and that was after midnight! All in all a lovely weekend.
