The Green Gate «

The Green Gate

Price From $130

Twenty-five years ago, native Parisian Paul Chatenoud came to Donegal to finish writing a book on philosophy. He stayed and opened a B&B in 1995.

Outside the town of Ardara (“tweed capital of the world”), the Green Gate is a thatched cottage on a seaside bluff. The four rooms have wood-beamed ceilings, pillowy beds, and thick comforters (the coastal wind is chilly).

Before exploring the ocean caves nearby, guests begin the day with 20 different types of homemade jam and marmalade, including Seville orange and wild blueberry.

Chat up Paul over breakfast, if only to hear a French accent garnished with a Gaelic lilt.
