    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.

    Family break: 2 adults & 2 children. Loads to do, loads of activities and loads to see. The kids preferred Donegal to our week in Spain earlier this yr. The area is beautiful with lovely beaches nearby and loads of things to visit. We will definitely be back soon.

    The house was ideal for a large family group.

    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.

    The house was in a great location and was literally just 5 minutes away from the centre were there was plenty of bars and restaurants. Then just another 5 minute walk took you too Buncrana Beach which was stunning. Cosy McCarrons was clean and very comfortable. There was plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 kids. It was nice and modern and the host thought of everything leaving us a beautiful welcome basket and all other essentials. Brillant place for a trip away 😊

    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

    Great B&B with high quality finish close to the main street. Brian is a true Gent and looks after you from check in to check out. Plenty of onsite parking which means you didn't have far to take in the luggage. Breakfast was amazing with a choice of cooked or continental food and endless tea or coffee. The B&B is c;lose to some great walks and beaches and is ideally located to tour around Northern Ireland.

    Staff were lovely and friendly, room was cleaned every day and was well equipped with hair dryer, tea/coffee making facilities, tv, and toiletries. Bed was lovely and comfortable and all food served at the restaurant was exceptional. Hotel is located near to the beach and within walking distance to Buncrana town centre. I will return to this hotel on my next trip.

    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.

    Warm welcome from Jason and his lovely black Labrador Peppa. Very comfy bed. Lovely view of the sea fromthe bedroom. Quiet location, and very convenient to Buncrana town, Beaches and facilities.and the heating being turned on for a short period in the evening was a nice touch, even though it was a nice evening in general.

    The house had a fantastic layout for 2 x five year-olds, ourselves and grandparents. Spacious, light, bright, and beautifully appointed. There is ample parking and the house is a short drive to Buncrana and it’s beaches. The property had everything we needed for a week’s stay and exceeded our expectations.
