My husband and I enjoyed a weekend at Dorrians Imperial Hotel June 2015. We were in need of relaxed break from the stress of everyday life and Dorrians turned out to be just the ticket. We arrived late the first evening, after a long drive. We were met with such a warm reception by the owners and reception lady. As... More

Stayed in this hotel for one night, this is an old hotel that needs serious investment. But I would still recommend this hotel, rooms are perfectly adequate, clean, well equipped,(old style tv) Bar and lobby need upgrading, the actual bar counter and shelves are beautiful, the dining room is old style, but the staff are very nice and helpful, chatty...

This is the most pathetic excuse of a hotel i have ever seen. It is definitely not 3 star. The biggest laugh is the dining area. The paint is flaking off the walls, glass is cracked and in some cases smashed. The place is a total dump. We went for the carvery. All food was prepared out the back which... More

We also had a... More

Stayed for four days over August, lovely hotel and the staff are fantastic. Would recommend the hotel for anyone travelling around Ireland. The Thatch bar is amazing and well worth the visit and the atmosphere is unreal. Gives the impression of an traditional irish gig in a little old pub.

I stayed in Ballyshannon for the Rory Gallagher International Tribute Festival. It was very busy for the entire weekend and it was great to escape to the quiet of the hotel situated in the centre. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. The room (309) was clean and just the right size for a single use - the quality of... More

Lucky to get last minute booking.When we arrived I thought the hotel was a bit dated.To my delight the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.The hotel is extremely clean.The food is good.The Chef went of his way to make me a special vegetarian breakfast each morning,which was served by a lovely friendly lady.I will definitely return to Dorrians Hotel.

Dorrians' Imperial Hotel is an absolutely delightful surprise in the southwest corner of Donegal in Ballyshannon, Ireland. From the gorgeous old woodwork to the chandeliers and wing-backed chairs in front of the fireplace in the reception area, the place exudes warmth and hospitality. The bedrooms are large and well furnished. Friendly, warm staff offer an array of breakfast choices. Dorians'... More
