When driving up the property seemed closed, but when we pulled in the front door was open. We were given our room key, but not brought to our room or given directions for how to get there, and another key to let ourselves in the back door for when reception wasn't attended (we were given the impression that this could...

Stayed in room 6 in Herons Cove for 2 nights on 28th & 29th May 2010, and had a 5* time. In truth Herons Cove isn't in Rossnowlagh. It is on the road between Rossnowlagh and Ballyshannon. If you plan on going out to the pub and walking back, or spending the day running in and out between the hotel... More

Relaxed atmosphere, close to Rossnowlagh. We got a taxi for 7 Euro to Smugglers Creek on Friday evening to see a live band. I... More

Food is now bland and served with synthetic tasting thick gravy nomatter what you have, has lost its homecooked quality. Hygiene and service also questionable, waitress cleaned up soup spoons with her thumb. Would not eat here again despite having regularly travelled more than... More

We stayed in the Heron's Cove Hotel at Creevy, midway between Ballyshannon and Donegal town, from 6th to 10th June. The hotel did not live up to the advance publicity, perhaps because the management has changed a couple of times since it won awards. The current manager, in post only since April, is still finding his feet. Nevertheless, the standard... More

Wrt to the previous review: the website of Heron's Cove mentioned the fact that they are closed during winter and would open half April, so we called ahead to check whether we could stay there in the 3rd week of April. Jim is the new owner of Heron's Cove and he says that from now on the hotel would stay... More
