We treasured our stay, very warm and welcoming. Breakfast was delightful and the hospitality provided by Marion & her daughter Sinead was excellent. We wish we could have stayed longer. Bayview Country House is the perfect B&B to explore all that Donegal has to offer.

Spent our first few nights in Ireland at this B&B. The room was very comfortable. The views were idyllic. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious with farm fresh eggs! Proximity to Ardara was excellent for a variety of dinner options. Thoroughly enjoyed exploring Donegal region and our stay at this lovey B&B!

A wonderful b&b. We had a beautiful room and superb breakfasts. We were so well looked after. Marian was really helpful with local advice and warm hospitality. We enjoyed our short walks into town for some very pleasant evenings and the wider area and setting is glorious.

A special accommodation in a spectacular area. Me and my wife won't forget the kindness of Marian and the nice atmosphere of B&B. Hope to come back ...

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.
