I have been sharing my home with guests for many years and really enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I have made many friends along the way. As a B&B host I hope to ensure that all our visitors delight in everything our B&B has to offer including the local area, the history, the colour and the fun that gives Donegal its special ambiance. I hope your stay with us is a truly memorable one.

We enjoyed our stay! Beautiful home, warm and friendly! Marie was a gracious host! Everything was perfect! We were limited in time or we would have stayed a second night! Highly recommend to anyone to stay at Caldra!

Overwhelmed by the glorious standard of every aspect of this accommodation, entrance, our room, breakfast room. Our room was beautifully presented and spacious with a view across the town and distant ocean. The location was quiet yet not far from town. Our hosts were welcoming, friendly and very helpful and supplied ample lovely breakfast. Thoroughly recommend this B&B

We stayed 2 nights at Caldra and wish we had more time to stay longer. Lovely B&B and Marie was so helpful with information on things to do and she makes a great breakfast too.
