Visited there in September as we wanted to have a nice meal before heading back to Canada. The receptionist at the front desk was very friendly but that's where it stopped. In the dining room we actually thought we might have to get up and fetch ourselves menus and drinks: either that or we were invisible. So slow and not... More

This is a lovely hotel where I've stayed may times which is certainly a compliment. Can't understand why it seemed so quiet as everything about this hotel is top class for an excellent. price. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling around the beautiful Buncrana/ Donegal area.

Recently spent two nights in Buncrana on a Golden Years break and stayed at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel. Great value at 99 euro for two nights B&B and two dinners. While the hotel needs updating, particularly the bedrooms, the friendliness of the staff, the wonderful scenery and great walking more than compensated. We had a spectacular view from our bedroom...

This is a great hotel which has a spa and swimming pool. It is situated close to lots of interesting places for lovely walks. The rooms are modern and you can request a sea view which is lovely. Staff are friendly and very helpful and the bar and restaurant are great for food and entertainment.
