    The hotel is a bit out of the town centre, but perfectly fine for car drivers - once you get used to the multi level one way system! Buncrana is well placed for touring North Donegal County and visiting Derry/Londonderry City nearby in N. Ireland, to where there are no travel or border restrictions. Thought the local ferries were a bit expensive for cars. The local attraction "Wild Ireland" situated near Burnfoot was well worth a visit. And a visit to Ireland's most northerly point, Malin Head, is a "must do" too. Be advised that the famous Slieve League Cliffs are over 100km from Buncrana.

    The house was ideal for a large family group. There were plenty of baths and showers in the house. The house has a great view. Apart form a few very minor things we were very satisfied. There is beautiful countryside, excellent beaches, and places of historical interest within easy reach of Buncrana.

    A visit to Dunree Fort is worth a visit.

    A visit to Dunree Fort is worth a visit. We didn't visit the museum but did some of the walks which were spectacular. We also ate in the little cafe on site which was very good indeed. Coffee in particular! Buncrana town is lovely, plenty of shops, bars and cafes. Its a one way drive system. We ate at Tank and Skinnys - just coffee and cake, but the food going to other tables looked delicious - we'll definitely be back.

    This is one of the best place to stay either for getaway or vacations with nearby beach & town. Justin is very helpful from booking until check out, very responsive to all messages. The interior of the house is excellent, modern and very clean and the best part is the hot tub with nice view & can be used on any weather as it is indoor with fire and seating area to accomodate large no of ppl. I give this place 5 stars and definitely will return in future

    We are a family of 7 and were in Bucrana at the end of June to explore the surrounding delights and stayed in the 5 star WAW Seaview apt. The apartment is brilliant and has everything you need to make your stay wonderful. It is very clean and the facilities are topnotch. Clodagh who is the host is brilliant and gave us wonderful tips on how to explore the sites around Bucrana. We'll be back.

    Good location for exploring Inishowen - went to Doagh Famine Village and Malin Head. Was also very central in Buncrana - nice walks by sea and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Door code very handy. Apartment clean and comfortable with lots of space. Host easily contactable and very helpful - lots of good tips for places to visit and restaurants to try.

    Th hotel was extremely well run, service in house and restaurant was excellent. Good range of dinner choices available and at breakfast there was the best range of fresh fruit I have come across in a long while. All in all this was one of the best value for money hotels I have used and the spaciousness and comfort of the room would be hard to beat.

    Lovely little B&B run by a super friendly family, who made sure that all our needs were met and exceeded. They also gave tons of good advice, for what to see and do and where to eat in Donegal, as well as what roads to take. The rooms were really comfortable and homey and I will definitely stay here again.

    The actual facilities were exceptionally good and the views over Lough Swilly and the hills around Buncrana were amazing. The hosts were friendly and helpful. They served a wide ranging breakfast that was hearty and generous. The bedrooms are very large and more than adequate for the average family.
