“Welcoming and comfortable B&B in Letterkenny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Arrived late and immediately welcomed by Maureen. Made to feel welcome and provided a comfortable room with a lovely shower and TV, just what we needed after a long drive. Good selection for breakfast and really well kept premises, would recommend it to any weary traveller

We started our trip in Ireland with one night here. Maureen was welcoming, and served us tea as we arrived, she called the restaurant we wanted to go and made reservations for us, The rooms were big airy and clean, and the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs we were served for breakfast were excellent!

The house and surroundings were wonderful.

If you need a place to stay in Letterkenny, I can recommend this one!

We stayed 1 night, which started our holiday off brilliantly. Maureen was very helpful, we had a restaurant in mind where we wanted to eat and she helped us with directions and also rang ahead and booked a table for us. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the breakfast the following morning was great and really set us up for the day ahead. Would highly recommend for anyone staying in the area.

We had one overnight stay in this lovely B&B as part of a 10 day tour of Antrim and Donegal. Maureen made us so welcome in her beautiful home and made us tea and cake on arrival. Our room was furnished to a very high standard with an extremely comfortable bed, and breakfast was simply delicious.There was lots of information about the surrounding area available to peruse although Maureen herself was so helpful in suggesting a picturesque route we followed to our next destination. Would highly recommend Glencairn House. Wish we had been staying longer!

We spent three nights at Glencairn House, Maureen is the most gracious host (and prepares the BEST Irish breakfast in all of Ireland!) Glencairn House is centrally located for touring the Inish Owen and Rosguill Peninsulas; as well as Glenveagh Park. Maureen was extremely helpful in recommending areas to visit and sites we should not miss. I high recommend this B & B - stay here you will not be disappointed

We spent two nights at the Glencairn and can't say enough about the hospitality and the location.
Maureen is so gracious and extremely helpful in giving directions and information about the area.
Breakfasts were Excellent! The room was spotless, quiet and comfortable. We would highly recommend the Glencairn.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Glencairn. The room was clean and modern. The bed was super comfortable and had the best satiny sheets. We enjoyed a quiet and restful sleep. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and included homemade bread! The host was very kind and accommodating. She gave us many suggestions on directions and places to visit. The location of the Glencairn was just outside of town so we didn't need to deal with the town traffic. Parking was convenient and on-site. We look forward to staying at the Glencairn again on a return trip to Ireland!
