The location of this hotel is great, we had a lovely view of the harbour and had a very warm welcome by the staff. The bar serves some great Donegal craft beers which I really recommend. Some people had said that the noise from the boats was too much for them but we didn't notice it at all and actually... More

Fantastic hotel with excellent staff. Big thanks to Niamh on reception for all her help. The food was lovely and very well priced. The few from our balcony/room was beautiful. Fantastic place to stay if your doing the wild antlanic way which is just stunning.

Although I didn't stay at the Tara on my most recent trip to Ireland, as I was travelling about here, there and everywhere, I did, however, manage a bar meal there again. This place is still highly popular with both local and visitor and no wonder. Excellent food and excellent staff.

Stayed over two nights from Friday to Sunday. This hotel was a great find overlooking the harbour and very easy to find. We had a perfect few days exploring the coast, viewing the beautiful scenery and enjoying gorgeous food back in the hotel. Will recommend everyone escapes here for a few days :)

We stayed one overnight with our family of 4. It was wonderful that the extra sofa bed was already made up for as (as we came in late)--the breakfast was excellent, desk clerk very helpful and nice, the price great, and room spacious. Hope to stay there again next trip.
