Good Hotel Guide Review
Cosy, unpretentious and welcoming, Theresa and Albert Morrow’s traditional guest house is on the working family farm between Lough Esk and the town. ‘Some may think it old-fashioned, but we were very comfortable. Theresa does a good job as front-of-house, and Albert, who really does farm, cooked us breakfast.’ Good-value bedrooms overlooking sheep-dotted farmland are in a converted barn, reached via a covered walkway from reception. They’re straightforward, with the expected amenities: a TV, a tea tray. A residents’ lounge with an honesty bar is further made homely with card games and an open fire. In the bright, beamed dining room, ‘pleasant, knowledgeable staff’ serve ‘satisfactory dinners’ with lamb and vegetables from the farm. ‘Our three-course menu was supplemented by a mushroom amuse-bouche and a sorbet; the wine list was long enough to give a good choice.’ ‘There’s not a pre-pack in sight’ at breakfast: a buffet holds fresh fruit, yogurt, cheeses, cereals and home-baked bread; French toast, say, or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs are cooked to order. The Bluestack mountains are easily reached; Donegal Town is a 15-minute stroll away. (EC)
