Yes this is an oldish Hotel but it has tons of charter. From the moment we stepped in the door and were greeted by a smiling Lorna to leaving having the banter with the night staff this was a fun filled pleasurable time. From the Manager Danny where nothing was a problem the bar staff the hotel staff to other...

We stayed here three years ago for just one night and decided to try our luck again - this time for two nights. The hotel had not changed at all which is not necessarily a bad thing. Parking is available just down the road from the hotel (voucher provided) and that can be a little frustrating when it's pouring with...

The hotel is in the middle of Donegal and is very nice and the staff helpful, the only downside is the que to wait for breakfast at busy times due to a very small breakfast room and the hotel having many bedrooms it just can't cope.
