The Cove Lodge in Donegal was the best B& B we stayed in during our three week travels in Ireland. Even though we arrived early our host was very happy to book us in gave a complete run down on attractions and map information plus a couple of local tips. The room was spotless and very comfortable breakfast was excellent...

My partner and I stayed for just one night but we would love to have stayed for far longer at The Cove Lodge. The accomodation is really beautiful - very high quality furnishings, linens, tableware etc and the house is presented and maintained to an excellent standard. We were met by Liam who gave us a warm welcome. Breakfast was...

We stayed for 2 nights (Sept. 11& 12) and we were delighted with our stay. The room itself was excellent and the breakfast and the room it was served in were outstanding.

This is a beautiful 5 Star B&B in a very convenient location near Donegal, which is a delightful town. Liam is a very helpful host who provided really good information and had created a detailed map so that we could plan our sightseeing options. We are so glad that he recommended the Pier 1 restaurant for dinner. Now, all we...

We really loved staying at the Cove Lodge. It is located perfectly to start day trips to wherever you wanna go. Donegal is only a few minutes away, an excursion to Slieve League (definitely worth it!) has been just a ride of about 40 minutes. We were even heading to the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland from there. The accomodation...
