We have just had a week long tour of Ireland, stopping at 5 different hotels. The Abbey at Donegal was our favourite. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we had a lovely view of the river, the evening meal was served quickly and the breakfast was excellent. The staff are very friendly and we even had entertainment , not... More

A recent visit to the Abbey hotel restaurant did not disappoint. There was a good choice of food on the Early Bird menu, and all the staff were very friendly and professional. I will definitely return! It would be helpful if the desserts, on display, were identified.

I was pleasantly surprised by the welcoming and helpful Bar Staff who have the dual role of food service. Regardless of how busy they were they were very attentive and made time to make sure our needs were looked after. Well done to all the Staff Your Managers should be proud. Will call again and spread the word.

We were a party of 9 on the retirement mid-week package at 199 euros for 4 nights half board. All of our rooms were excellent, consisting of more than one double bed per person in each room with no single supplement. There was an exception, one of our party, a 92 year old lady, initially was given the key for... More

We had wheelchair accessible room. Staff were very helpful,courteous and efficient. Food menu catered for all requests(food allergies). Entertainment was top class. Our room was large and roomy. Hotel is central to everything, great location. Will be coming to stay again. A home away from home.

We recently stayed at the Abbey Hotel with a coach party. The staff seemed pleasant but over-worked. The rooms were comfortable. The worst thing was the food. Every night, whatever meal you ordered it came with horrible instant mash. NO new potatoes, roast, chips etc, just MASH. Battered fish was on the menu on 2 or 3 occasions, but always... More

Even though it is an older hotel, everything was clean and the 3 bed suite was huge. Well located but be aware that parking can be a pain. Breakfast was included and well served. Would definitely stay again and recommend. It might not be a big hit with the youngest.

Stayed here as part of a national holidays package. Not easy to give a good review. First night I was given room 122. This is simply a cupboard the width of my out stretched arms!!! No windows either! Asked for a change but not possible till the second night. This room was just fine. Why give guests on a holiday... More
