My partner and I stayed here for a couple of days in August 2014, all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was large and spacious, overlooked the river and was spotlessly clean. The food in the very comfortable modern Market garden restaurant (in the hotel)was excellent and plenty of it, breakfast was the same. Hotel is situated... More

Recently spent a night at this hotel with a coach party. Our room was large and spacious and overlooked the river. The food and service was excellent. Would certainly recommend this hotel and would stop there again if I went back to Donegal.

Hotel centrally located, no hotel car park though, you will be given a concession for a public pay and display car park a couple of 100 yards away, park as close as you can to the garda station across the road to deter any potential anti-social behavior. Hotel lobby appears nice and inviting but unfortunately the same could not be... More

We were attending an Irish dancing Feis in Donegal town and stayed for 1 night at the Abbey Hotel. First impressions, staff were lovely. Nice hotel. Room was good size, dated but perfectly adequate. It all went downhill that night. My mother, daughter (aged 8) and I went to bed at 10.15pm as we were to be up early the... More

Abbey Hotel is a good sized hotel with good amenities- they bill themselves as an entertainment destination so there is music in the bar downstairs every night. We were traveling as a family and it is hard to find rooms big enough for two adults and three kids. The Abbey had the best room we had the whole trip- a... More

Overall, very nice place to stay. Busy with lots of tour groups and buses…lobby can be hectic. Facilities a bit worn but comfortable (remember, this is Donegal Town…not Dublin). Very accommodating staff. I arrived a bit grumpy and after checking in to hotel and getting in to room had to return to front desk with a list of needed items.... More

Very very nice hotel. Food was good but a bit limited, we were there 4 nights and every night there was mashed potato served, the last night we actually asked for a different potato choice which they did. Rooms were very big really nice and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.
