The Tara is in a super location in the centre of the town. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. The hotel is very homely and there appeared to be a good mix of clientele. We have 4 children and the interconnecting rooms are ideal. Food & service could not be faulted. We would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel... More

Pleasant enough hotel with friendly staff and nice a la carte food. There is very little in Killybegs, other than a commercial fishing port. Should have paid the extra to stay in Donegal Town. Biggest issue was electricity. Ridiculous number of power cuts during breakfast which caused considerable delays. I asked staff if this was a regular occurrence. Guess what... More

Myself and my wife stayed at this hotel for one night with our son during our one month touring holiday in Ireland. We got to Killibegs and saw the TARA. We were offered a large suite on the 4th floor and a large double room on the 3rd floor for our grown up son. Both rooms had superb views over... More

The room was lovely and clean, breakfast was enjoyable no complaints but we needed to call a taxi and usually a receptionist would offer to call for you rather than hand you a piece of paper with names and number's on it just a little touch called good customer service.

Stayed on off chance due to illness while on holiday in camper. Very nice room and very nice service. Paid about £97 for one night which was fare. Had to eat out as the place was full due to local events. Would have liked a pot of coffee in morning instead of keep asking for a refill, if you have... More

We stayed in the Tara Suite which was a really spacious, comfortable room with a perfect view of the fishing port. We appreciated the comfort after a long days drive and it was great to be able to sleep with fresh air after so many hotels that were stuffy. There was slight noise from the boats but nothing to complain... More
