“One of the best”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

We recently spent four nights with Majella and Martin at the Oaklands B&B. Right from the start we knew we had made the right choice. We were made to feel right at home as she showed us around her wonderful place. Oaklands is very convenient to the downtown area and Majella gave us good suggestions for places to eat. She went above and beyond what one would expect from a host and even offered to do some of our laundry. Her breakfasts were great and the choices were numerous. I especially enjoyed conversations with Martin. He is a great guy and a wealth of information about the world in general. Both he and Majella made us feel a part of the family. We will most certainly return if we are ever in Donegal area again. We highly recommend the Oaklands if you are going to travel the Northern coast of North Ireland or the Donegal County area. Derry is a short distance away and you can travel most anywhere on the Donegal loop in a day.

Thank you so much for your review. We greatly appreciate the time which you took to write such kind words especially the piece about Martin having a wealth on Information which some may argue with. However on this occasion, I am happy he took pride of place within our total service offering as so many have recently commented upon him forming part of the total package. Slán go fóill

I recently spent a long weekend in Oaklands B&B and I couldn't have found a more welcoming and accommodating host in Majella or a more comfortable and easily accessible B&B. We were made right at home, given a delicious breakfast in the mornings and only a 5 minute walk from the town center. I will definitely be going back!

I was part of a group of five friends who stayed in Oaklands for 3 nights recently. Majella the host is amazing. She was very nice and helpful, she made us feel right at home. On the first morning, we had to be gone at 7.15 and Majella had no probelm in serving a full breakfast to us at 6.45. The house is very comfortable with a large sitting room and TV. The B&B is close to letterkenny town centre, just a 5 min walk! Would definitely recommend Oaklands and will stay there again if we are back in Letterkenny!

Spent a lovely three nights here over the weekend, and couldn't have felt more at home!
The house was cosy and comfortable, and we were made to feel so welcome by Majella, our host.
We had a delicious breakfast spread each morning despite the early 7am starts and were able to relax there in the evening in comfort.
The fact that it was in good proximity to the hospital and town was a bonus

It was ridiculously good value for money and we'll definitely be staying there again next time visiting Letterkenny

The best 'home away from home' I found during my travels in Ireland. Superb hospitality. Friendly and treat you like family!!!! Go the extra mile to ensure all guests are well taken care of and happy. Great company and conversation. Would advise anyone in the area looking for a home not just a place to stay to make sure they had down to Oaklands!!!!

We spent 5 nights at Oaklands and could not have been more pleased. Nice, clean room with comfy bed and good shower. Great location - close enough to walk to town but easy to get out for day trips. The best part of staying at Oaklands, though, is the hosts. Majella and Martin treated us like family. We had the misfortune of a flat tire one morning. Martin zipped over to a garage and got someone to come and fix it within no time at all. We enjoyed our morning chats with Majella, who was always friendly but still gave us time on our own. We could not have selected a better B&B in Letterkenny. I highly recommend staying at Oaklands if you want to explore Donegal.

My experience at the Oakland's B&B was a very memorable one. Majella and Martin are very welcoming hosts and you can tell that they really enjoy running the business; it's not just a job to them.

I really liked that their home is just outside of town. Close enough to walk yet far enough that it is a quiet street with plenty of parking. Additionally they have a nice little room that is detached from the main house and has a little bar and a wood stove, which they allowed us to use. Breakfast was super good too.

Anyone traveling through this area would be hard pressed to find a place to stay with a better value.
