The whole thing was very well organised, food was great, staff were brilliant- in particular Angela. Age range of the group was a real mix (as young as 20 all the way up... More

The Abbey Hotel is centrally located on ‘The Diamond’, the market square in the centre of Donegal. It is possibly named after the old Abbey, built in 1474, and the remains at the waters on the edge of Donegal Harbour is a 5-minute walk from The Abbey Hotel. Donegal itself is derived from its Gaelic name, Dun na nGall, which... More

It is located right on the diamond and so great for shops/bars/restaurants and travel connections . And that's all the nice things I can honestly say . Hotel is old fashioned, needs a good clean and... More

It had moments of high speed but then dropped out for 15 or 20 minutes at a time and was really a waste of time. The... More

Stayed here with partner and 7 year old daughter on a Tuesday night, room with b&b was 79 euro. Room and bathroom was good, not the newest but clean. This hotel has some character about it. There is a restaurant that serves more pricey food and a separate bar that has cheaper bar food and has music most nights. The... More
