After reading some poor reviews we were uncertain about what to expect at this hotel. The location in center of town provided excellent access to local places of interest. The bedroom was of good size which was well furnished and clean. Staff were helpful and the breakfast was good. A very enjoyable stay.

When we asked any question about Donegal or other close by cities, the staff gave us truthful answers. The Market House Restaurant in the hotel has a substantial breakfast and meals offered at lunch and supper... More

We didn't stay in Donegal but did have lunch at the carvery in this old world hotel. It was exactly what we needed after a light breakfast and not eating until after 1 p.m. Though it was later on for lunch, the food was extensive and very hot and tasty. When in town, it is worth the stop to relax... More

Stayed here one night before traveling onward. BOTTOM LINE: A lovely hotel with equally lovely staff in a lovely town. I wish I could’ve stayed another day or two to properly experience Donegal, but I hope to come back again some time. LOCATION: Right in Donegal Town. If you’re coming in via bus, chances are it will stop right here.... More
