“Pretty good value, but stipulate wifi when booking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Stayed two nights at Gallagher's whilst working in Letterkenny. For the money this is a smart hotel - my room was spacious and well furnished; bathroom a bit tired and no separate shower. Despite the website saying that rooms have free wifi, it is apparently only some rooms that do; it's worth making sure when you book. Breakfast was average - canteen-style fry-up and the usual selection of cereals and underwhelming pastries, but not bad at €5 (pre-booked).

This does seem to be a bit of a favourite for hen parties, so be warned. Some of my colleagues had disturbed nights; I had no problems.

Stayed at Gallaghers on New Years Eve with five friends. Can't believe how cheap it was. Had dinner in the hotel, the staff couldn't do enough for us and food was lovely. The rooms were great (we were on the quiet 3rd floor), would recommend to stay here100% and will definitely go back again and tell anyone I know who is going to Letterkenny to stay at Gallaghers!

Room Tip: Choose 3rd floor if you want a quiet room.

Stayed for a weekend in January. It is a perfect location in town if you don't want to travel too far.
Found all the staff very helpful and Paul in the bar was very nice. Overall the hotel was very good however found the shower awkward with the way the curtain is fitted. We also returned to room to find our door left open by cleaning staff; with an iPad, iPhone + Kindle on charge this was not ideal but staff did apologise.
One big draw back was the noise of the fan when heating was on; had to switch off to get to sleep as the room was cold.
Thought the breakfast was pretty average and only ate one day plus this put us off eating dinner.
Generally for the price it offers good value and we would stay again.

Staff were very friendly and rooms were clean. It's location is very central.

After requesting a quiet room, I was put in room 305, which was next to a lift, so needless to say I didn't get much sleep. The power pressure in the shower isnt the best either and it is a shower in a bath. I was disappointed there was no body lotion, conditioner etc., in bathroom, just shower gel attached to the wall. Also no complimentary biscuits with the tea/coffee.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not near a lift if you are a light sleeper!

We stayed here sat night and had a lovely stay. We had a room on the 3rd floor which was very quiet, just what we asked for! staff were friendly, breakfast was very good, plenty of choice. The bar was quiet but then again its November! overall would recommend, had a lovely stay and in a good central location.
