We took a day trip out in the car a couple of Sundays ago, a beautiful sunny autumn day in Donegal. We were passing through Donegal town at about 1.15pm and decided to call into the Abbey Hotel for lunch. My husband ordered a drink and I went to the toilet. What I met was a health hazard; each of... More

Phone booking very good and pleasant. Room decidedly average, if not poor. Staff disinterested. Mid week stay. Staff could have been better. I'm prob being too harsh, but as I checked in late ish, I asked for a sambo, but was told that an un toasted sambo would be TEN euro before I took a bite !! Simply NOT acceptable.... More

I arrived at hotel only to find that the triple room I had booked was unsuitable for my Mother and staff had no bother moving us to a room closer to lift for easy access. I ate in restaurant with my Mother and we were very happy with food and service, my sister had bar food a bit later and... More

Stayed with a group of ladies for a hen night. The hotel public areas were lovely, bedrooms are a bit dated but are clean and had everything you need. We had a 3 course dinner in a private function room and the food was excellent. The live band entertainment on the Saturday night were really great and the atmosphere in... More

This is set in the center of town, Donegal. Older hotel, but updated, so you will be pleased. The northern wind hits the back of the hotel so you get WIND noise the higher they place you. Resturant / Bar good service and a broad menu. Breakfast is included in the price. They will exchange moneys but at a rate... More

Hotel was ok but not been able to open the window found it very hot and stuffy. We asked for the A.C. To be turned on in the bar area but unfortunately no response. The hotel is centrally located in the town and they do give a parking voucher for the public car park as there is no hotel carpark.
