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

The room was clean and comfortable with a double and single bed. Tea / coffee making facilities, safe, iron available in room. Breakfast was delicious, good selection of both hot and cold... More

This review is based on major international budget chain hotels. Access is via a few steps with no disabled slope with a lift in the hotel. Parking is in a public car park adjacent to the hotel which looks out on the docks and main street. Hotel was well heated and clean but dated in appearance. Shower gel/soap/coffee making facilities... More

A family gathering of 14 called here over the Easter holiday. We had wandered around the quayside and decided we wanted a drink & a snack: the Tara Hotel was very close and, despite its rather gloomy appearance, we decided to go inside. We were all able to be seated as a group using banquette tables and stools. The Guinness... More

Great view of the trawlers from the room.Drawback is it's noisy because you are looking out at the trawlers. Free wifi across the hotel was a massive bonus. Only 3 pillows in the room so uncomfortable nights sleep when you like 2 pillows. Room was roasting so had to open the window. Had a nice drink in the bar. Breakfast... More

Haven't been to Killybegs for a long time so wasnt too sure where to eat. So took a chance on the Tara. Had dinner in the bar after a long day at work. Very good and enjoyable. Very fairly priced, will definitely call again.

Lunch on a wet, windy March day. The cod was far and away the best I've ever eaten - fresh, perfectly cooked and the lightest batter ever. Scampi also highly rated! Pleasant décor and service too. Recommended!
