Stayed here for a couple of nights on a short visit to Donegal and happy to recommend. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. Our room - one double, one single bed - was comfortable, decent size and spotless, with a good en suite shower, tea and coffee and an ancient tv - but you don't come to this beautiful... More

I stayed here for two nights at the end of September. My room was spacious and held 2 single beds and 1 double. The beds were comfortable and i slept well. The decor of the room was out dated and the floors were very creaky. We could hear every step the room above us made also, so below could probably... More

Nesbitt Arms Hotel is an older hotel but has chracter, built in1838 and is a family run hotel. Rooms are fairly large, we had a handicapped room, they must've been full the night we checked in, but at least the bathroom was large. Just no place to put any toiletries. Very few outlets in the room, so bring a plug... More

Nesbitt Arms is an older hotel that has been well maintained without losing it's quirks and charm. The rooms are spacious and clean with comfortable beds. Our room on the 3rd floor was down a quirky windy hallway, but very quiet even with a Hen and Stag party in the hotel that night. The TV did not work and there... More

Unfortunately we did no use the Nesbitt Arms as a hotel but had two excellent meals there during our trip to Donegal in August. Our first experience was a light lunch which included sandwiches, with chips and drinks for three people which came in at around 15 euros great value and great food.
