The man at the desk pat was great and the room was spacious if a bit worn. The bed was fine with a smaller bed next. I think we may have been the only people staying there (it was a Monday night) so I believe we got a choice room. As I said in the title, this place is a... More

Olde world hotel right in the heart of town, very friendly and helpful staff, could not do enough for us, spacious room which was spotlessly clean with great views of the mountains of Mourne, breakfast was lovely, cooked to order and plenty of it, the bar was busy and there seems to be entertainment most weekends.

We are an occasional walking group from the midlands, Laois mainly. We booked the Donard Hotel in March 2016 for a July weekend hike in the Mournes. The hotel is located in the middle of the town, convenient to all the restaurants and pubs. The cost for the weekend was very reasonable and the rooms were large and comfortable. There... More

Quite dissapointing trip after reading good reviews hotel is need of major make over and good spring cleaning. No real comfy chairs to sit and relax in and if you wanted a drink you were asked to go next door to the Donard bar which to me was really for men who were very loud and were betting on horses...

The bad: Granted I am taller than most, but the shower head in my bathroom was at my neck level and even though I am an engineer, I could not get the shower to turn off and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Donard Hotel on 4 July 2016. I had booked our room back in November 2015 and had emailed Pat a couple of times regarding payment etc. Right from the beginning of booking I sensed that this was going to be a lovely hotel. When we arrived on Monday we were welcomed by the... More
