The Mill Dunfanaghy


The Mill has reached a new chapter in 2020, offering the best place to stay if you want to bridge the gap between a large hotel and a B&B.

A home from home, we offer seven individual rooms that range from cosy to cavernous.

Start the day with our award winning breakfast, relax in our many lounge areas and with our extensive local knowledge, we can show you why we think this hidden corner of Donegal is the best place to be.

Opening hours

We are open from March until November.

Our rooms

Our rooms at The Mill are named after our local townlands with the exception of The Studio, which was Susan's grandfather, Frank Egginton's painting studio.

We hope we have created a warm homely feel, a place to relax, unwind and recharge.

From our carefully curated Antiques, Egginton paintings, books and furniture, all our bedrooms are unique.

Of course, they all feature TV's, heavenly mattresses, complimentary wifi but its the wee added touches that make the difference.

A welcome with coffee and homebaking, complimentary water, wine, homemade oaties for your room and fresh milk when you want it. Our larger rooms also have a Nepresso machine.

The story of The Mill

The Mill was bought in 1949 by Susan's Grandfather, Frant Egginton, a famous watercolour artist.

He converted the flax mill into his studio and home until his death in 1990.

Work began in 1999 to modernise and enlarge the house to accommodate a restaurant, 6 ensuite rooms and a living area. In 2016 , another room, The Studio, was added.

Our new chapter begins in 2020.
