This is a small, centrally located hotel right across the street from the harbor. The room was clean and neat. The bathroom more than adequate. The restaurant had a nice breakfast. There is a bar attached, so you can get a pint or two if you desire. We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and found it met our needs... More

Great hotel with a wonderful view of the harbour. The food here is of a very high standard and restaurant, bar and reception staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. Our room was excellent looking out onto the trawlers tied up in the harbour. Great balcony with lots of space. We would highly recommend a stay here.

My friend and I were delighted with our stay, especially with the service. The price was right, the location was unusual but turned out to be perfect for our itinerary and the view of the harbour.

The rooms are lovely and clean,the staff are very helpful and friendly doing their chores in a professional manner. The choice offered and the quality of the food at breakfast is exceptional. I haven't eaten in the hotel at any other meal times, so I can't comment.

We thought we would have a trip to KillyBegs in August 2016, as part of our West Coast journey. We pulled into Killybegs town to find it a little quiet to be honest, though for me it was ok.

A very friendly and welcoming staff. Ours was a lovely room with views overlooking the harbour. Clean and great to have a place for both of us to sit with the facilities to make tea or coffee. Good food provided in the bar. Ideal base for Slieve League and the Wild Atlantic Way.
