“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

I was a member of a 12 person group from rosway walking club in Ballinasloe Co Galway who travelled to Donegal on the weekend 23rd-25th August 2013. We had on our agenda to climb the Slieve Liag cliffs and also do a loop walk in Glencolumcille. We booked into the Nesbitt Arms Hotel in Ardara. Now, our group are renowned for our large appetites and also for having a lot of wet gear to try and get dry in between walks. I have to say that the staff in this hotel were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The food was lovely and plentiful. Our gear was left to dry in the boiler room overnight. Two of our members were leaving early on the Sunday morning and Liam the night porter had breakfast ready for them. the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Overall we had a great weekend, the slieve liag cliffs are truly magnificent and our stay in the Nesbitt Arms was top class

Room Tip: Room 304 is a lovely large room

What a gem in Ardara. The staff are great especially Gabriel in the bar. Nothing is too much trouble and small children very welcome. Great atmosphere. Very reasonable pricing. Lovely surroundings and great craic.

Lovely room, staff helpful, bar area too small when crowd there. Food is average - you pay for what you get. Will stay here again but not on a Saturday night as there was a band playing until 2 am in the morning.

Stayed here with my husband and 2 kids. We've stayed here many times, and every time we have the same experience. It's a small town hotel but a great spot, the food, the staff, the service, everything was top class.
