"Beautiful location and hotel, room like a sauna!"
We had a one night stay at the hotel. Everything was as you would expect for a hotel of this standard and the location is wonderful close to the lake with forest and lake walks. We were in a courtyard room and there was torrential rain during our stay which meant we got wet during our trips to and from the main hotel, also puddles had formed on pathway which resulted in our feet getting wet as well. The major issue with our stay was with the underfloor heating in the room which appeared to be stuck on maximum. We had to open doors and windows to get relief from the heat - it must have been at least 35 degrees, very uncomfortable! We know from other friends staying in these rooms that the heat was oppressive in their rooms as well.

"Great Aussie flavour"
A comfortable B&B, with great views of the estuary. Claire and John have spent some time in Australia and that made our stay a bit better as we discussed their experiences. Also tis is the first B&B where we were welcomed into the sitting room when the family were in occupation, which made it a very friendly and intimate visit. Our room on the ground floor (I couldn't face the stairs , was very comfortable and we had control of the heating, which for us was great. Breakfast was sumptuous and almost more than I could get down. Claire was happy to do a bit more than you might expect in providing explicit requests.

" traditional country house. full of memorabilia"
The hotel was very quiet on arrival with a very friendly welcome. We were shown to a large room in the outside building. As it turned out, we were the only residents. The room was warm and cosy and very clean. We spent some time in the bar and had a fantastic meal.The menu was varied with plenty of choice. Several diners from the village dined. Comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast rounded off a pleasant stay.

"Wish I found it sooner"
I stayed here only one night in the cabin / apartment next to the main building, but wish I had found it earlier so I could stay an extra night or two as it's a great location to serve as a base in western Donegal - less than an hour from Slieve League It was wonderful. The cabin had a futon downstairs along with a mini-kitchen and full bath. The loft upstairs had a bed fit under the "A" frame roof. The bed was very comfortable - best sleep of my trip. Upon arrival, the owner greeted me and offered a beverage. After showing me around, he suggested I go to a pub down the road for some traditional Irish music. It was a great introduction to the area, and exactly what I wanted. The next morning, the breakfast was great - full irish, or whatever else I wanted along with smoked salmon, cheese, meats, and of course, some great coffee and chat. If you're in the area and looking for a good place to stay - look no further, this is it.

    Pocket Guide: Donegal Cavanacor Gallery Hotels

    County Donegal may be best known for its dramatic coastline and beautiful countryside, but it’s not all rugged cliffs, beaches and woodlands. There are plenty of attractions steeped in their own rich history and there are also lots of galleries to attract art lovers - sometimes you are lucky and the two are found in one.

    That is certainly the case at Cavanacor House in Lifford. Probably the finest surviving example of a plantation property in Donegal, the house is actually the ancestral home of the 11th President of the United States of America. In its grounds you’ll find a superb gallery which serves as an exhibition space for emerging and established national and international artists.

    Lifford, which borders County Tyrone in Northern Ireland, is the administrative centre of County Donegal and has its fair share of comfortable and affordable places to stay.

    Hotels Close to the Gallery

    Since being established in 1999, Cavanacor Gallery has built up an enviable reputation and provides a real investment in contemporary art. It holds about six exhibitions a year and there is always a range of exclusive, limited edition prints on sale. It is only open on selected days, though, so it is always best to call ahead to avoid disappointment.

    To date, the gallery has shown work from leading Irish artists such as Hughie O’Donoghue, Felim Egan, Deborah Brown, Neil Shawcross, Sean Fingleton, Eamon O’Kane, Carolyn Mulholland, Brian Ballard, Diarmuid Delargy and Michael Cullen. Huib Fens, Reinout Van Der Burgh, Svend Bruun, Klaus Diersen, Anita Taylor, April Kinser and Arno Kramer are among the international names to have exhibited at Cavanacor.

    A House Full of History

    Cavanacor House is located less than a mile outside Lifford, on the road to Letterkenny. It is one of the earliest plantation houses in the county and has been continuously occupied since the 17th Century.

    In the 1690s Magdalene Tasker, who was born at Cavanacor, married Captain Robert Bruce Pollock and they and their children emigrated to America, settling in Somerset County in Maryland. The family shortened their name to Polk and Magdalene’s great-great-great-grandson, James Knox Polk, born in 1795, became US president, holding office from 1845 until his death in 1849.

    The current owners, artists Eddie and Joanna Kane, have developed it as a thriving artistic centre where pottery, sculpture and painting workshops are held. The house, which has a tea room and a craft shop, enjoys a commanding view over the river Deele and is surrounded by parkland and woodland walks.

    Nearby Lifford is best known for its 18th century Old Courthouse, now home to an excellent heritage centre which, with the clever use of technology, re-enacts several bona fide trials.

    Where to Stay

    As one of Donegal’s larger towns, Lifford has a number of hotels, guesthouses and bed and breakfasts but, if you want to search further afield, Letterkenny provides plenty of alternatives. The twin towns of Ballybofey and Stranorlar, on either side of the river Finn, are also worth checking out.
