"Exceeded our expectations."
First time in Ardara. We are American who visited the area for ancestry research purposes. The proprietor and his family were VERY helpful giving information about the area and hints as to where we could find records. The premises were very clean and the on-site pub/restaurant eliminated the need to go back into town for dinner. Quality of food and drink were outstanding. Read less
Likes:
The country setting just outside of town centre was lush and charming. Especially liked to formal garden.
Dislikes:
Water pressure a bit weak in shower.

Woodhill House is an historic coastal manor house dating back in parts to the 17th century. The 6th century religious relic, St. Conal's Bell, was mysteriously stolen from Woodhill House in 1845.

The house which overlooks the beautiful Donegal Highlands is set in its own grounds with an old walled garden. It is half a mile from the sea and a quarter of a mile from the coastal town of Ardara on the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’. The house offers unusual and interesting accommodation with private bathrooms, 3 star rated. There is a fully licensed lounge bar, which has occasional music sessions for tourists and locals alike. Woodhill House is well known for its high quality and reasonably priced restaurant which accommodates house guests and the general public. The menu is French/Contemporary Irish based using fresh Irish produce, especially seafood from nearby Killybegs.

Beside ‘The Wild Atlantic Way’ Woodhill is well placed for exploring Donegal.
The local factory shops offer exceptional bargains in tweeds and woollen goods. The Owenea River provides excellent salmon and trout fishing. Pony trekking along the beaches is also popular. The links golf courses at Murvagh, Donegal town and Portnoo/Narin are all within a short drive. Boating and surfing can also be enjoyed nearby with some of the best Blue Flag beaches within easy reach. Cycle hire is also available
Ancient Doon Fort and the Dolmen at Kilclooney, again only a short drive away. Ireland's second largest wild life reserve, Sheskinmore, is a few miles north of Ardara. The truly spectacular Slieve League, the highest sea cliffs in Europe, is only 20 minutes away and close to Glencolmcille, an archaeologically rich pagan and Christian centre, with its fascinating folk village. A scenic 3/4 hour drive to the north is Glenveagh National Park with its romantic castle. Apart from some of the most unspoiled scenery in Europe, traditional music can be heard in most of Ardara's twelve unique bars.
