Second short visit to the Inishowen Gateway in recent months. What the hotel lacks in modern décor is more than surpassed by facilities particularly the leisure centre and the adjacent beach which was well trodden during the stay. I would in particular recommend the bar food menu for both variety, including multiple vegetarian options, and the price. Friendly and engaging... More

We recently stayed here for a family wedding, ill point out firstly that we live locally but it was easier to stay with kids in terms of baby sitting etc. We got checked in to a family room and they already had a cot setup, if you stay away with kids you will know this doesnt always happen as smoothly...

Booked an overnight stay with my boyfriend in February, we arrived earlier than expected and before check in. The lady on reception couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Our room was lovely and clean with a beautiful view of the lough. We had a delicious lunch, late dinner and breakfast at the hotel with no complaints at all, a... More

I stayed for one night, bed and breakfast, at the Inishowen Gateway. The seaview from my room was delightful, even though the room itself was a wee bit tired. It was spotless, though, and it was obvious that the cleaning staff do an excellent job. All staff in fact were very friendly and helpful. I dined in Buncrana itself so... More

Stayed on the night of 7 April 2015 with son and his girlfriend. We were attending a wedding at The Red Door in Fahan so this hotel was ideally located. First impression at check-in wasn't great as the receptionist spoke so quickly - I got the impression she had a script which she knew off by heart. However, on check-out... More

A big gathering of cousins from all over the U.K. chose The Inishowen Gateway as our base for 4 nights of birthday celebration, spending time together and searching for more details of our Donegal roots. Well, there was a great deal of revelry as you can imagine . . . and a great deal of wining and dining! We found... More

We are now in the process of booking our wedding at the beautiful Inishowen Gateway which is a testament to the great standards in qaulity of food, accomodation... More

We recently spent the night at the Gateway Hotel at Innishowen. We were spending the night at a Phil Mack Country show. The hotel was excellent, room very clean and the bed very comfortable, staff very friendly especially Jill on reception, we know Jill from another hotel and she also recognised us, it was nice to be remembered. The food... More
