Very large and spacious room and delicious breakfast. Room was well equipped with kettle, coffee/tea and with ensuite and all the necessities. Marian was very accommodating to our requests. Beautiful area with many things to see around (Slieve League, Dolmen, beaches, ...). We walked to Ardara and enjoyed the oubs and coffee places. Enjoyed a beautiful sunset on our way... Only complaint is the weather ;-). We went there for St Patrick's weekend and were not too lucky with the weather.

Marian was a gracious host and Bayview was a wonderful facility. Ardara was probably our favorite town and Bayview was a short walk to town center. The breakfast was delicious the shower was great and the bed comfortable. I highly recommend it.

What a stay! Marvelous! Marian is a wonderful and gracious host who goes out of her way to comfort her guests and make them feel at home. The location, in Ardara, is perfect for those who have never been to Donegal, our most treasured area in Ireland, with vast open spaces, beautiful mountains, great pubs, (walking distance form Marians home), otherworldly beach views, and of course plenty of sheep. You will never forget Donegal and Ardara, a link to Ireland's past!
