Bruckless House was built in mid-18th century by a Plantation family, Nesbitt, but quickly passed into the hands of an Irish family, the Cassidys. It remained with them right into the 20th century. Legend has it that a Gate Lodge was built along with the House and that it was located at the then main entrance, near the River Stank off the present-day main road. Today there are no signs of this building - it was probably demolished to make way for the tracks of the County Donegal Railway. By 1894 the main entrance had been removed to the present location, using a bridge to cross the railway, but no gatelodge was built until the new century.

Don't Take Our Word For It...

“We enjoyed the lovely sitting room very much and our host lit a wonderful real fire each night. Two of the three nights led to most interesting conversations with other guests. Breakfasts were tasty (best rhubarb sauce) and in very pleasant surroundings and the gardens were magnificent. We loved the nearby town of Ardara and my husband enjoyed his golf game very much although I can't remember the name of the course.”

“We have seen quite a few B&B in Ireland and the UK. Although we were quite lucky with most of our choices, this one easily ranks itself under the the best we have visited so far. The house, the garden or better park as well as the rooms are perfect and full of history. We regretted very much that we had not planned to stay more than one night.”
