We went as a package deal with 2 nights B&B 1 evening meal and entertainment. Hotel has just been recarpeted and the smell of carpet glue was a bit overpowering. Room didn't have that welcome feel about it, If you are unlucky enough to get a room on the second floor you might need GPS to find your room at the end of the night as the corridors are like a rabbit warren. Our double room onsuite bathroom was beside the fire escape and boy was it cold, a butchers cold store would probably be warmer.Next time we go to Bundoran to see our favourite Artists performing we will check into a recommended hotel and just buy the tickets for the shows at the Allingham. The evening meal was inedible, steak was too tough and the lamb tasted terrible. We dined at a little steakhouse further down the main street and the food and service was excellent. The facilities for the entertainment are very good it's just a pity the rest of the hotel dosen't come up to scratch.
