We stayed in Donegal town for a night on the way up to Derry and found the Abbey hotel to be very well priced and very quaint. The room was comfortable and the breakfast room was lovely. The reception staff were particularly helpful when we had some difficulty finding out last-minute booking and helped us without any hassle.

I have recently spent the Easter weekend at the Abbey Hotel in Donegal Town, this being my third stay in recent years. There is always a great buzz about the hotel and Donegal Town. Our room was quite spacious and overlooked the town square, so people watching was interesting! Both the bedroom and bathroom were nicely decorated. The food, as... More

We stayed here mid week for two nights and enjoyed it immensely. It's an old hotel but our room was bright and cheerful with comfortable bed and pleasant ambience. The bathroom was on the small side and short on shelf space but shower was powerful. Breakfast was good but dinner was excellent. We dined from the a la carte and... More

We stayed April, two nights and we will never be back. Room dated and we got no sleep due to the loud noise of the nightclub / band until 3.30 am in the morning. So much for a relaxing weekend, the family couldn't wait to leave.

We go on a National Coach holiday with our best friends once a year and so far this has to be the best hotel we've stayed in. We didn't arrive until after 9:30pm having been on the road since 05:30am (but that is a different tale altogether!). A full 3 course meal was waiting for us in the restaurant. Can't... More

stayed here once and hopefully never again, food was nice, staff were friendly, but room very dated, also we could hear the band and nightclub until 3.30 a.m. and then people talking after that, we got very little sleep and felt worse leaving than we were when we arrived, we were hoping for a relaxing weekend.
