I enjoyed 11 days at Anderson's Hillcrest House B&B in September 2012. Martin Anderson, the award-winning, professional chef, provides a comfortable, convenient home base from which I did day trips to the Giant's Causeway, Derry, and Dunfanaghy. Martin is a thoughtful host, with great craic, and very helpful with suggestions for places to visit & the must-see sights & directions...

We've spent our holidays in countless B&Bs in England, Scotland and Ireland even a long time ago when our children were still young and travelling with us. Six years ago we found Martin Anderson’s Hillcrest House in Letterkenny/County Donegal/Ireland. THE ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT! The best place we’ve ever been! It just happened by chance and luck to find an accommodation like...

My group of 4 golfers stayed here for 9 straight nights as we played all the local courses. Host Martin was very accomodating and we had an excellant visit. He was very flexible about morning breakfast time and menu - very welcome since we had different tee times and drive trip each AM. Highly recommended.

I first found Martin and the Hillcrest House when I was doing an international search for a chef in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. Martin worked with me "across the pond" to create a beautiful cake which he personally delivered to my boyfriend and his daughter. I have been to Letterkenny many times since, and have had the pleasure of having brunch...
