“Okay but some minor faults”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 1 night and thought it was a beautiful area with gorgeous views. We were greeted at the door by a grumpy man, who didn't offer to carry our bags. We got up to our room and it was beautiful but had a not so good view, of a digger and a old fruit and veg van. Our room was very cosy, occasionally it got too warm but that couldn't really be helped. We then went for a meal, which was delicious and staff were very friendly and attentive to service. In our room, there was a few faults, the television didn't work, the sink broke and the iron and hair dryer were poor quality. The Body wash was also bad quality. But There was soo many other excellent things. I enjoyed my stay, but would have enjoyed it more if these faults were seen to ! Breakfast was good, overall an average stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room was a sea-view

My wife and I recently spent a long weekend traveling around the Donegal gaeltacht and choose Caisleain Oir as our base largely because of the consistently good reviews on TA. It's perfectly located nearby both to the various villages (like Gweedore and Dunfanaghy) around the coastal road and also for accessing the national park at Glenveagh. It's pleasantly decorated inside and is kept pristine clean and we had a spacious comfortable room that looked out to a beautiful view across the bay. There's a wide range of tasty choices for breakfast and we ate there two evenings for dinner; the cooking is great quality all round, genuinely home-style and with huge portions. The staff are also exceptionally friendly and strive to make your stay just that little bit special. The place exceeded our best expectations, we thought it was really terrific value for money, and since we came back (to Dublin) we've been recommending it to anyone who wants to visit this beautiful part of the island.

Room Tip: I think most rooms have a good view of the bay but ask to be sure you get one

My mum and dad, husband and I all stayed here in March 2013 and had a fantastic time! We didn't know anything about the hotel before we arrived so didn't know what to expect. When we arrived we received a warm welcome from the reception and were given our keys.

The rooms were very well kept, very clean and had tea and coffee facilities and two bottles of water, which makes all the difference. The hotel was very warm and cosy and all of us were delighted with our rooms. This is not a big hotel, which I think it makes it all the better.

The food was outstanding in the bar, big portions and of a high quality, never disappointed (and at a reasonable price). The breakfast was fantastic also and had a great choice of things, cereals, hot cooked breakfasts, toast, fruit and juices, tea and coffee.

But I have to say the thing that made this hotel brill was the staff. We spent many hours in the bar at night chatting with the owner and getting a background on a truly family run hotel! The locals in the bar were also very helpful and gave us great advice about were to go during the day and tales from years ago and stories about the surrounding area. A good place to see is the castle which is nearby in a fabulous setting! Would definitely return here for a lovely peaceful weekend away beside a fantastic beach and lovely scenery.

To sum it up a lovely, quiet trip away in a stunning location!

Arrived at Caisleain Oir at 8.10pm and ordered bar food which arrived quickly. Portions were large although I asked for my chips not to be salted ..an they were. Had to wait longer than I would expect to have plates taken away. Was never offered a desert menu and couldnt catch the waiters eye.. eventually went up to bar at 9.20pm and asked for menu. Was told kitchen closed and chef away but could have ice cream!! Excuse me but sign says "serve food all day" - in this day and age bar/resturant in a hotel closing at 8.30pm....AMAZING!!!

This hotel is a beautiful warm friendly and clean hotel, and the food is absolutely gorgeous. We arrived hours too early but we were given a room immediately wish was very nice. The room was spacious and clean and the bathroom was spotless. This hotel is situated in a very scenic part of donegal and only five minutes from carrickfinn airport. I highly recommend a visit to this hotel if your travelling in the area and I will definately be back.

Thanks to everyone who made our recent visit so so so special. From the moment we arrived until our departure it was an absolute joy. You looked after our dear mother so well.

Food, staff and accommodation superb. We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room - you will not be disappointed.
