Reviewed 14 July 2014

My friend and I stayed in this b&b when we visited Letterkenny for a night out last weekend, We were greeted by Majella as we arrived and immediately felt very welcome. The room was very comfortable, clean and tidy. It is in a great location to Letterkenny town centre, only a short walk. I would recommend Oaklands b&b to anyone and strongly suggest to ask about the outside bar area that Martin went out of his way to make comfortable for us, which is great for relaxing with a few drinks, a bit of music and good company. Breakfast the next morning couldn't have been better with plenty of variety. Part of our great weekend was due to staying here and I really look forward to my next trip to Oaklands B&B. Thanks again Majella and Martin!!

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.
