Got married here in July. John and his son James and the satff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was top notch, the warm cosy atmosphere and stunning grounds really added to our unforgettable day. I'd highly recommended a stay here.

My wife and I spent a few days of our five weeks touring Ireland at Woodhill House. We found the host family to be charming and especially the the staff that met us when we arrived and served our breakfasts. We stayed in both the main house and in the carriage house. The main house room was charming, and the...

Family of 3 shared a family room on a busy weekend in October. We were lucky to get the last available room as there was a festival in nearby Ardara. Taxi from Woodhill to Ardara was €5 each way and the town has lots to offer tourists including cafes, restaurants, pubs, live music at weekends etc etc. Donegal is famous...

We found it to be a little expensive for what we got. The room was poorly maintained as far as peeling wallpaper, painted furniture in dire need of another coat of paint and a window that couldnt be opened as it was hanging on one hinge. The bed was rock hard, which made it a very uncomfortable nights sleep. There...

I stayed and dined in Woodhill many times as a child with my parents and hadn't visited in many years. I was delighted to find the food and setting was still as fabulous as I remember it but sad to see its not the busy spot it used to be when it deserves to be busy. I spoke with James...

We loved staying at Woodhill House! We stayed in The Coach house which was spacious, comfortable beds, and beautiful view overlooking the walled garden. The main house had a cosy pub which offered a menu for light fare. The highlight for us was the charming village of Ardara and proximity to numerous attractions to see( Slieve League, Glenveagh National Park,...

Four of us arrived for a three day stay in August 2016, we had been having a perfect vacation and lovely stays in Ireland B&B's. Upon our arrival we like to settle in with an evening cocktail, often meeting in a shared or common room that had been our experience. We four ventured down to the sitting area in Woodhill...

My hubby and I took a last minute break to Ardara in late August. Three nights in Woodhill booked, and we were away. We'd stayed before, many times, and were never disappointed. I asked for a garden room when booking. Glorious sunny Donegal weather when we arrived, warm friendly welcome from John and James. While the room allocated to us...

We have just returned from three lovely days spent in Woodhill House in Ardara. The welcome we received was warm and genuine, and set the tone for our stay. The house itself has a sense of history, with fine gardens and views, and inside there are beautiful pieces of art, happily mingling with family photographs. The dinner menu deserves a...

Other reviews have described the layout of the hotel and how it all works. All I have to add is that the service is fantastic. The food is inventive and of a very high quality, and finally - it's great value for money. Probably the best restaurant in Donegal - highly recommended!
