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.
Woodhill House was once the family home of the Nesbitts, local landlords and Ireland's last commercial whaling family of the 19th century. The house was also once the home of the 6th century religious relic, St. Conal's Bell, until the bell was mysteriously stolen in 1845.
The hotel has a 3-star rating from Bord Fáilte, the National Tourism Development Authority of the Republic of Ireland.
