“The best B&B in Donegal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Rossmore Manor, built, owned and delightfully run by Jackie and Geoff absolutely sets the standard for Irish B&Bs! Our room was massively spacious, something rare and so appreciated. The bed and bedding is of great quality and comfort, and the views are gorgeous. The two of them cooked amazing breakfast, fresh and hot, to order. But what sets this B&B apart from the dozens and dozens we have stayed at throughout the world is the warm hospitality Jackie and Geoff. They are just the warmest, friendly hosts! And they have a beautiful pub on premise!! And they will never make you drink alone, though I don't see how they have the time, they spent hours with us, sharing stories and answering all our questions about their country and language. Our two nights there was just way too short. They will make you feel like family in short order, which is the charm of a good B&B, but what is missing from far too many. Donegal and the surrounding country is well worth visiting, and Rossmore Manor is the perfect base for any visit.

Room Tip: Book early to get the room you want at the front of the house for the amazing views!

We stayed one night in Donegal at the Rossmore. The outside of the B&B looks like a modern castle. The location of the property is not far from town, we had a car so it was convenient for us. We had a amazing room that was huge. Great breakfast and views from our windows. My only small complaint would be the noise in our room from other rooms/bathrooms. Not a huge deal. We took the time to drive to the Slieve cliffs, a must do while in Donegal. About a 40 minute drive.

Great hosts and fantastic service. Rooms are gorgeous (some gigantic) in a beautiful pastoral setting. They even leave a towel at the door in case you need to wipe your motorcycle seat off after a rain. This is a "must do" location.

Room Tip: Book well in advance in order to get best selection on rooms. Note that the B&B is not set up fo...

Wonderful experience---view, hosts, peace and quiet, food, care, and location. Lovely room. Very clean and comfortable. View is pastoral plus tidal water. Fall asleep and wake to sounds of sheep and peacocks. Nothing but peaceful silence in between. Breakfast with view in dining room that takes you back in time while Jackie serves an excellent breakfast. Close enough to Donegal for best dinner (Harbour Restaurant) you might have your entire trip. Surrounded by lots to see and do.

Room Tip: Good variety, really, large or small. Ask for a view.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in mid-May. Upon arriving, we gasped at how beautiful the view was from the castle-like house. Jackie was a perfect hostess, showing us to a massive room with a glorious view of the water. We asked to make a fire and she built us one herself. Her breakfast was tasty and her tips for our morning at Slieve League helped us have a perfect day. Jackie also assisted us when we requested a cab into town at nighttime.
I'll be recommending this B&B to friends and family who are visiting Ireland in the near future, and I can't wait to return myself!
