The Green Gate offers wonderful guest house accommodation in Ardvally near Ardara. The guest house in Co. Donegal is the perfect place to escape to from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
The Green Gate belonged to and was created by the French philosopher Paul Chatenoud who owned Paris’ first ever music book shop. Paul came to Ardara, a tweed and fishing town, to write his book ‘The Eye of the Ventriloquist’. A copy is in each room. He bought the Green Gate 3 years later and lovingly restored and created his unique B&B. Paul passed away in 2014 and The Green Gate is now owned by Edouard, Paul’s son and managed by Paula with the full support of Edouard and his family.
