Everytime I'm in Ballyshannon, I stay at this magnificant hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The single room is very comfortable. They serve great Irish breakfast in the restaurant. The bar is cozy and prices are reasonable.

I would certainly come back again. And the pub up the street is delightful, with thatched roof and peat fires. We visited the first night and joined in... More

The owners were there personally to greet us and very efficiently got us to our allocated rooms. Reception was near the door but the large lounge was very welcoming with many comfortable chairs and a large fire in the... More

I haven't been to County Donegal before but have stayed in many Irish hotels over the years, ranging from chic Dublin properties, to charming historic properties like Bantry House. Dorrians was right up there in terms of a friendly greeting, service, facilities, and a... More
