Stayed at this hotel for one night. It has a great position harbourside and our room had a great view overlooking the fishing boats. We even spotted a seal in the water. We eat in the hotel bar. The food was well cooked, with plenty of choice. Prices were very reasonable. Didn't have breakfast here so cannot comment on this.... More

We stopped off in killybegs for two days . The Tara hotel has a great location. It's not the best harbour in the world but it was great to sit and have breakfast in the window. The rooms are clean and lovely. The wifi works well here. We decided to stay here for dinner and drinks the first night .... More

Stayed here in June with my partner and daughter and couldn't fault the hotel or staff. The rooms were spacious and clean and we stayed on the first floor where we had access to a large balcony overlooking the harbour. The food in the bar was fantastic, especially the chicken wings. The staff were very friendly and attentive to our... More

Normally, we shy away from hotel food - but in this instance, we were so happy that we went for the special dinner offer we received when staying at the hotel. We both enjoyed the 4 course meal (one course, being coffee/tea) - and were pleasantly surprised by both the presentation and flavours of the meals. And - the views... More

We had bar food in the Tara hotel during our recent trip to Killybegs. The bar overlooks the bay and is very scenic. Excellent comprehensive menu something to suit all tastes. We had two salads which were fresh and tasty. The staff were very helpful and efficient.

Great place to stay. Large, clean, and well-appointed room. No negatives come to mind except, perhaps, the slightly remote parking. But parking all over Ireland is frequently problematic. The close proximity to the waterfront at Tara was a plus.

Tara Hotel was the 1st stop on our 10 day visit and it was a great way to start. The Staff was excellent and very helpful, offering great advice on places to dine and things to see close by in the area. The location was fantastic and hotel had all the necessities and comforts anyone could want.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June 2015. We booked a family suite. The room was on the top floor up under the roof so a rather strange shape but good sized. The staff was friendly and they offer a full Irish breakfast. The hotel was very good value but Killybegs is disappointing as a base...very little to see/do... More

Great little hotel sat right on the harbour front overlooking all the fishing smacks and right in the centre of this charming village. Lovely clean and comfortable rooms, bar, and dining room with lifts to all floors. Staff very helpful and provided us with an extra room at no further charge due to two of our party not wishing to...
