My boyfriend and I spent a week in August 2015 in Donegal as we were in search of some down to earth rest and relaxation, close to nature and in a comfortable and low key environment. We just loved basing ourselves at the Tara Hotel. It was a perfect location to get everywhere we wanted to all over Donegal. We... More

Stayed while attending family wedding. We were allowed to check-in early before heading to the wedding which was great. Even managed to get in a quick bite to eat before heading to the church. Rooms were clean and fresh. Breakfast was good and staff were very helpful.

Easy checkin/out process! Had a great room with a nice view of the harbor. Food was excellent as my wife and I enjoyed dinner! Would recommend the steak and any seafood. Perfect for our drive to Slieve League for some hiking the next morning. Would come back!

Arrived at the hotel to discover they had given our rooms away as they could not contact the person who booked. We were basically left high and dry. with the help of some hotel staff we did get...

We stayed in the hotel for two days, the hotel was in a really good central location and we had a room with a sea view so we could see the harbour. The room was quite spacious and very clean. We had breakfast on both days, the second of which we ordered room service which was lovely. Staff were very... More

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
