Whitestrand B&B

Malin Head, Donegal, F93 V6XP

Review Score: Superb 9.7/10

15km from Carndonagh

Meet your host…

Mary Houghton

A warm welcome awaits you here at Whitestrand B&B. Since I opened my doors to the public in 2000, I have put into practice much of what I learned first hand from my Aunt, a Guest House Proprietor in Mayo, 1950 - 1990. Like her, I bake bread, scones and a host of other tasty bites, make jam, raise chickens; and so your breakfast is mainly from our own produce or sourced locally. I look forward to welcoming you to our B&B and to this area of outstanding natural beauty.

We enjoyed our stay with Mary at Whitestrand. The home was very nice with a nice room. The breakfast was delicious with plenty to eat. This is our first stay at bed and breakfast. We thought there would be a common area to relax in. There was only our bedroom and the breakfast room that was shared with other guests. I would have selected higher if that were the case.

The home was clean and cozy with beautiful view of the country side and water. The hostess was warm and hospitable. Breakfast was very tasty and filling. We would stay there again.

A beautiful pace to stay, perfect for us who wanted to explore the farthest northern parts of Ireland/Northern Ireland. Mary was a wonderful host, very warm and welcoming - lovely tea-tray with scones and muffins on arrival! The room was spacious, beautifully furnished, clean and with comfortable beds and the bathroom ensuite. The view from the windows was stunning, the sea and the sky. We would love to return to Whitestrand, to stay longer and explore the area further, since this time we only stayed only night.

We loved Mary and James. We loved the lodging accoutrements. We loved Malin Head and hope to return, if not only to visit the Houghton family. Thank you for making us feel as though we were home. Maybe we were!
