“Great welcome”
Reviewed 26 August 2011

I was going to put a 4/5 because I found the furnishing and general decoration of the place old and that it could do with a little refreshning of some sort. But then I thought about the lovely landlady who's doing everything in her power to be helpful and kind without ever intruding on your privacy. She's really sweet and gave us some great advice (on places to eat - which turned out a good surprise - or special views to see on our way).
Breakfast was plentiful and the bed was very comfortable. Can you ask for more when you've got such a welcoming host? No. So here goes the 5/5!

I brought a friend from New Zealand to Donegal so she could experience friendly and beautiful rural Ireland. I had never been to Letterkenny before but decided on visiting there so we could go to Glenveagh National Park and some nearby beaches. While I was expecting a friendly welcome as is typical in rural Ireland, I was not prepared for just how lovely Maureen and her husband were. They are such a humble, gentle and gracious couple and it is such a lovely experience to stay at their b & b. They were so friendly and went out of their way to help us with various things. The b & b was spotless and so quiet so we had a great night's sleep. It's a quaint place too and feels very Irish! The breakfast was really delicious. If you are looking for a warm Irish welcome and great accommodation this is definitely the place for you!

Lovely comfortable room with a proper firm bed. Television in room. Wide selection of breakfast types available. But do not ask Maureen to chat when she's doing the toast. Lovely lady helpful and friendly. A real Irish welcome awaits you.
Thank you so much.

We stayed in Maureen's wonderful guest house from Friday to Monday. From the beginning Maureen was the perfect hostess, making us all feel welcome and comfortable. We wanted for nothing, the service and the rooms were first class, and the fantastic breakfast set us up for each day. The breakfast room view is truly wonderful. If you ever want to stay in Letterkenny, this would be the ideal place, we can't wait to get back there really soon.

Thanks Maureen, from the Dunlop family, Ballymena.

We stayed here for one night and enjoyed it. The location is good (5 minutes from downtown Letterkenny), and the room was comfortable, but small. The place could use some updating, but it's still good. There is free wifi access, but you cannot access it from your room.
