“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Philip and Kaye Strong stayed at this beautiful Bed and Breakfast in April 2014. The purpose built accommodation was very spacious, very comfortable and so peaceful. Our hosts were friendly and made us feel so at home. The views were just lovely and we found Ardara itself to be a complete surprise....it is the most beautiful area with breathtaking scenery.

We were so lucky to be there when all the baby lambs were taking their first steps which was so special. Anyone wishing to explore this area of Ireland will not be disappointed, and your stay will be even more memorable if you chose to stay with Fiona, Laurence, and their beautiful children who made us feel so welcome. Thanks you for your wonderful hospitality and we certainly would hope to return before too long. (Phil and Kaye)

My boyfriend and I arrived late on the night we were to check in. Unfortunately, Fiona had no record of us but she was extremely friendly and took us to a beautiful room she had prepared anyway. Laurence was very friendly as well and helped to serve us breakfast the next day before he left for work. Overall, beautiful room with nice sized bathroom, comfortable bed, and great views of the surrounding area. Very close to Maghera Beach which was great to see as well!

My absolute favorite location from my sister and my recent trip. Started our stay in Ardara by driving right past the B&B, a stop in town to ask directions was perfect as Laurence happened to be there! We followed him back to the B&B, got settled into our room in the annex building (perfect) and the best part, i looked out the window and there were sheep!! Babies, an open window gifted us not with traffic noise I get at home but by ewes and their babies gently bahhhing to each other. Heaven. Decided to see if we could walk into town, check things out a bit more and grab a couple of pints and a bite. Ran into Laurance playing with his kids (adorable), he said it was doable, showed us a less busy and scenic alternate route and we were off. Well a bit more than a 10 minute jaunt, but it was beautiful, well worth it and exercise, plus some of my fav trip pics were taken on that walk. Back in time to watch the sunset over the sheep and the ocean in the distance, lovely. Next morning we got to meet Fiona, have a wonderful breakfast and Laurence went over a more than full itinerary of places to go and do! Took him up on his suggestion of a boat trip to see the Slieve League cliffs and so glad we did, really wonderful time. Glengesh Pass, Killybegs and points inbetween. Knowing that Fiona and Laurence also have their family cottage that they rent out, I'm already planning my next trip in the back of my mind, camping out there in the lovely Donegal landscape and escape for a week or two!

Upon arrival at Gort Na Mona we were so warmly welcomed by Vera who graciously escorted us to our lovely room. Very clean and spacious. It was nice to hear the pitter-pat of children's feet! Wonderful breakfast and very kind hosts, Fiona and Laurence and their beautiful family.

Our family was disappointed in our stay in the main house. As an advertised 4-star accommodation, the room was nice enough but there was no soundproofing whatsoever. We arrived tired and wanting to rest but could hear doors open and close, phones ring, people talking and coughing, and footsteps from all directions until 11pm at night. Additionally, the bed was not that comfortable, the bathroom was very outdated, and the chemical smell from the toilet bowl cleaner was overpowering to say the least. It permeated into the bedroom which was problematic. The owners and their children were incredibly kind but unfortunately that could not overcome the B&B's shortcomings.

We spent a night in Gort na Mona in April and were welcomed by all the family. We were given, at our request, a quiet double room (upstairs in the annexe) with a great view (right down to the distant sea). The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious. Our hosts were very informative about the surrounding area and their children were delightful.

Fantastic b&b just outside Ardara.
We stayed here for one night. Beautiful rooms, the bed was super comfy and the showers are seriously powerful! That's the mark of a good B&B in my book!
The owners are so nice! Very knowledgeable about the area.
Fantastic breakfast!!
We'll defo be back
