Visited Donegal for St Patricks Day, staying at The Central for 4 days. Everything about this hotel is excellent. All the staff are very efficient, helpful and very friendly. Everywhere is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. We had a large comfortable room with every amenity one could need. The food was absolutely delicious and very well presented with lots of...

Lovely big rooms but the shower could have been better as water was only luck warm. Beautiful view of the bay from our room. All in all great... More
