Anne Adam

Anne and Rainer have been in the B&B business for 14 years now; they originally came to Ireland from Germany on holiday, fell in love with the place and stayed. Anne loves to spoil her guests in a German/Irish way and Rainer is a keen chef, he loves to go fishing and allows guests to tag along with him if they fancy it. They look forward to welcoming you to their home.

Follow this road until the village Doochary and then follow the street signs to Lettermacaward (after the little bridge and the pub to the left). After approximately 12km you come to the N56 and go to the left towards Glenties. After 2km, just before the Gweebarra bridge, take the right and follow the street signs to Eagle's Nest (Cullion Road/An Cullion). Follow this very small road for approximately 2km.

Via Sligo/Donegal Town: From Sligo you take the N 15 to Donegal Town, take the bypass to Mountcharles (N56), approx 1.5 km  after the MC Monagle Stone factory take a right and follow the sign "Glenties", stay on this road for approx. 27km until you meet again the N56, follow again the sign for Glenties, pass the main street, follow the N56 to the left (sign Lettermacaward), after 12km you'll see the Gweebarra Bridge, just behind take a sharp left turn (not concreted road)  and follow this "typical Donegal road" close by the bay. After 2km you find us on the right hand side.

Our group of 4 was delighted with Eagle's Nest. Rainer was so helpful and friendly. He makes a wonderful breakfast, we so enjoyed the homemade fruit spreads along with fresh eggs and pancakes and more! My husband especially enjoyed sharing fishing stories and pictures with Rainer. The garden is lovely and the surroundings peaceful and pleasant to enjoy. I love hearing the best tips for what to see and do in the area, and we enjoyed doing just what Rainer suggested.

We stayed with Rainer for a week and it was lovely. We had our own little separate cottage which was cute and homey, Rainer was the perfect host. He made a delicious breakfast every morning. He was kind and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay there. I would definitely recommend Eagle's Nest B&B if you're visiting Donegal.
