The decor is a little dated. In saying that the hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. We found it good value for money. We had dinner in the bar. The view from the bar is wonderful, it overlooks the harbour. The food was excellent. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.

Myself and an old friend were meeting up after some years and decided to take a few days in South Donegal to travel around and reminisce. We were looking for a quiet peaceful hotel and spotted the Tara on the web. Looked good and good price for a three star. A friendly greeting awaited us when we got there and... More

Nice, small hotel, very friendly reception & bar staff. Rooms are decent, good breakfast, although breakfast staff could be a little friendlier. Easy parking, on the street right outside the door and right in the centre of the town

Our original booking was for the 19th and 20th of April but due to unforeseen circumstances we rearranged the booking to the 21st and 22nd of April. This was carried out in a very professional manner by the receptionist. All the staff from the receptionists to the housekeeping was... More

Went for a long walk at slieve league and then returned to the Tara for bar food. Had a really pleasant but simple meal of cod chips and mushy peas. Service staff were v pleasant and the cod hopped straight from the boat on the pier! This was lovely way of finishing off my day at slieve league.

I stayed here because Lonely Planet suggested the hotel and I was looking for an easy booking during a busy trip. It was on the way to Slieve League, which I planned to visit. The room didn't have any of the normal toiletries, which I found out were forgotten when I asked in the morning (I was too tired and... More
