Outdoor lovers can take on the impressive Scalp Mountain, explore Inishowen Peninsula and roam the idyllic Glenveagh National Park. Visitors won’t fail to be enamoured by rugged Donegal.

This was a beautiful home and grounds. The décor within the home was interictally detailed. The home and rooms were very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. The location was perfect for a day in Derry or exploring the northwest coast of Ireland and the hosts were more than willing to offer guidance wherever you need to go.

Our stay with Josephine and Charlie was delightful. The attention to detail was superb with the outstanding beauty of their house. Josephine helped us with places to visit and was so kind. We suggest this B&B to anyone.

Josephine and Charlie are truly lovely people. We stayed in 2019 and had them marked on our list with a star to return again. Everywhere at this location is perfect. The house and the yard outside is like a 5 star resort. Charlie was good enough to drive us to where his sheep were a couple of kilometers away. My wife really loves sheep and it was so good of him to walk us over to his sheep in the field. Everthing is first class at this B&B !

There was a warm & cosy fire in the hearth when we were greeted by our hosts on a cool, raining September afternoon. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable and the ensuite was clean and well-stocked. The breakfast was one of the best during our Ireland trip and our hosts were friendly and cordial. We highly recommend this B&B.
