We stayed at Cove Lodge for one night over the August bank holiday weekend. It is very easy to find about two miles from Donegal town, on the main road between Laghey and Donegal. It is in a beautiful scenic location. We were greeted by Liam who was very friendly and shown to our room. The room was very clean, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast the next morning in the dining room. Everything is done to perfection here, served on lovely delph and nice big pots of tea and coffee. There is a lovely atmosphere and Liam was very pleasant and offered more of everything if we wished. I would definitely recommend this B & B if you are looking for accommodation near Donegal town.

A very pretty house and comfortable, clean room. Joan was very friendly and made an excellent breakfast and the location made it very easy to get to Donegal and travel along the coast to Slieve League.

As I read the reviews, I am very surprised and disappointed because we did not meet Joan or her daughter. We were greeted by Liam who was very brisk in his introductions and explanations. The room was fine, too small to be comfortable. There was no room to even open 1 suitcase. The setting while rural was on a main road into Donegal and with our window open we could hear cars going by all night. The breakfast was fine but it was the only B&B we stayed in which made us choose between the cold entrée of yogurt and fruit and a hot meal. It was our least favorite place of the 7 accommodations we occupied in our travels.

Cove Lodge was very comfortable, although the bedroom was a bit small. Joan's daughter was very helpful with places to eat in Donegal Town, which is only about a 5 minute drive away. Breakfast was delicious.
