“Fantastic hospitality and a wonderful breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2011

Had a fantastic stay in the Rockvale House B&B. We received a great welcome from the lady of the house upon arrival. Throughout the weekend, both she and her husband offered a lot of helpful info and advice and they really went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay in Ballybofey. Like the house, my room was bright, cheerful and immaculate, and in the morning we were served a big, hearty breakfast. The owners really made us feel so welcome and at home. I would absolutely recommend this place to friends and family. We will definitely return when in Donegal again!

Stayed in this B&B for one night and could not rate it highly enough! The rooms were spotless and extremely comfortable, with a more than sizeable bathroom. The service was all (and more) than you would expect from a lovely host and hostess. The breakfast the next morning was fantastic, and I left the place refreshed and ready to continue on my travels!

Having stayed in the Rockvale House B&B I would recommend it to anyone passing through the beautiful town of Ballybofey. The location of this immaculately clean, family home is both ideal for those passing through the area, due to its location on the main Donegal road and also those looking to spend some time in the area as it is but a few steps from the town centre. Our accommodation was spotlessly clean and we were made feel very welcome in the family's quiet, comfy home. We ate our breakfast at ease in the bright and private family dining room (May I recommend the brown bread scone!)
I'm already looking forward to my return visit in August to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Go raibh míle maith agat.

I stayed at Rockvale House B&B recently with my girlfiend and was very happy with it. The place itself is near the town of Ballybofey where we were meeting old college friends. The rooms were clean and tidy and the owners of the B&B were very friendly and helpful to us as we didn't know the area at all. The breakfast was great too. I'd recommend this B&B if travelling to Donegal, Ireland. Hope to be back sometime again and would definitely stay here again :-)

Having stayed in many B&Bs over the years I would rate this as the worst. From the outside it appears well kept and attractive, unfortunately inside is a different matter. Our room was cold, depressing dated and scruffy, the matresses fit for the bonfire, no tea/coffee making facilities and a tiny inefficient shower room with old used guest soap! The hall plunged into darkness as soon as we had walked through it adding to the dark gloomy effect.The list of 'Rules' on the backs of the doors were brusque and unfriendly and what you might expect to find in a boarding school not holiday accomodation! This is one Irish B&B which certainly did not have 'a welcome on the mat'!
