    Lonely Planet review

    Ireland's last commercial whaling family once lived in this manor house, parts of which date to the 17th century. Although today you're unlikely to hear 'thar she blows!', you will find plenty to hum about amid the 10 comfortable rooms and gardens. Just 300m east of the town centre, the hotel is popular for Irish dinners .

    The bar has a great beer selection.

    Our independent authors have visited Woodhill House and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Southwestern Donegal.

    Description provided by property

    Surrounded by beautiful tranquil countryside and well-kept gardens, this charming family-run country house offers comfortable accommodation, tasty fresh food and a traditional Irish welcome. Just a few minutes’ walk from the very heart of Ardara, overlooking the beautiful Donegal Highlands, Woodhill House is surrounded by its own attractive grounds and has its own old walled garden. The house is just half a mile (0.8 km) from the sea and a quarter of a mile (0.4 km) from the centre of the coastal town of Ardara. This coastal manor house has a long and rich history, with some parts of the original building dating back to the 17th century. Today the hotel offers peace and quiet in a wonderful tranquil location, as well as a small bar with a real open fireplace and a good restaurant in the old house.
