Hotel: The reception, Mezzanine/Bar and corridors are nice, clean and modern. Hotel car park can fill up pretty fast but car park available across the road. Location: Fantastic location in the centre of Letterkenny town, within a reasonable driving distance of Malin head (1 Hour), Derry city (40mins) and Glenavey National Park (20mins).

Enjoyed our stay at Gallaghers in Letterkenny in May 2014. Room was OK comfy beds - no view because window faced a ramp --- great service at bar and restaurant. Location was good -- I can recommend just because of the great staff in the restaurant and bar

With two families with similar names, it was not helpful to find we were given the key for a room already occupied by another couple. Especially as they were in the middle of "unpacking" when we blundered into their room! Not sure who was more surprised-us or them! Given an alternative room, the card key was wrongly programmed and would... More

We stayed at Gallaghers for 4 nights using it as our "base". It is a good basic hotel that is clean & comfortable with no frills. The staff is very friendly & helpful. The breakfast is plentiful, but dull. Over-all it was a pleasant stay.
