Stayed here for 3 nights. Nice hotel, friendly staff, centrally located downtown. Not updated due to being very north but still nice. No air conditioning, but if you propped your door open with the window open it cooled off fast to make it easy to sleep.

We had a comfortable 2 night stay at this centrally located hotel in Donegal town. Staff were smart, professional, friendly and helpful. If you need parking, the hotel will issue a voucher for a nearby car park. There was free WiFi. Breakfast was a good buffet with service for hot dishes.
