Stayed here during a recent trip on a cycling outing. Mary couldn't do enough for us. Was up early to have breakfast ready so we could head on our way quickly. Nice friendly B&B and owner. Location is really quiet too. Thanks for everything.

What an amazing b&b! Lovely room and an amazing host! Mary made sure we had everything we needed and helped us finding a restaurant by calling half the town. She helped us selecting the best sights as well. Breakfast was also great.

If you are traveling to Malin Head, Whitestrand B&B is where you want to stat overnight! We arrived there late, but that was absolutely no problem. On the top of it, we were greeted with a smile and scones, muffins and tea. We had a baby with us, which was again no problem, (you know, they can be noisy), instead,...

Minetta and I had an absolutely wonderful two weeks within Buliban Cottage, Malin Head. Mary was a wonderful host and made sure that our stay was just perfect.

Wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit, warm scones, porridge. Even the water tasted great! Very clean, large room. Quiet location. No views from B&B (though the lambs next door were sweet), but breathtaking ocean views 2 minutes' drive away. Proprietor extremely hospitable. Add to this, least expensive B&B I stayed at in Ireland!

Mary Houghton has made her B&B into a warm, welcoming home. The rooms are large and comfortable with beautiful views of Malin Head. I love going for a walk along the beach and then up through the farms, talking to the sheep, cows and horses. Breakfast is individual and yummy.

On behalf of my 89 year old mother visiting the place of her childhood. Mary could not have been more accommodating attending to every need and some! A lovely place to take a break and enjoy this beautiful part of Donegal. Choice of eggs (including duck)for breakfast and full Irish is highly recommended B&B only but Mary offered afternoon home...

The place is truly amazing but what makes it like haven is how welcoming and caring Mary is. From the moment we got there till we left she went above and beyond to make our staying great. We staid there only one night and we regret we didn't stay longer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm welcome awaits you here at Whitestrand B&B in Malin Head at the northernmost tip of the Wild Atlantic Way coastal route. Since 2000 I have been welcoming guests from all over the world. Many have returned for several visits, been drawn back by the varities of activites and attractions on offer in this area. Boasting the unrivalled natural beauty of County Donegal at every turn, you will experience spectacular views from our Bed & Breakfast.Catching a glimpse of basking sharks, dolphins and seals in the waters around Malin Head will surely make your visit a memorable one. With beautiful beaches, hill walks, diving and superb water sports and gold in the area, you are sure to enjoy your stay at Whitestrand. This area, with it's rugged landscape, is a haven for cyclists, walkers and birdwatchers alike and it is one of the few remaining area in Ireland where you still hear the corncrake bird calling during the short nights around midsummer. Many visitors have come especially to view the famed Northern Lights. They have been enthralled at the spectacular red and green shimmering lights of the Aurora Borealis in the skies over Malin Head. Whitestrand B&B has three rooms ensuite, all with seaviews, one room is a family room. ... more   less
