Stayed in this Hotel for two nights. Really good. On check in, my room was very warm, not cold like May hotels after check in. The room was large, with sea views, and spotless. I felt relaxed as soon as I entered.
I had bar food which was very good, and fantastic value. It's a family run hotel and feels newly built. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. The bar has a log fire burning to enhance the cosy feel of this hotel.
Location is in the middle of this beautiful village, in north west Donegal. Will stay there again for sure.

Top marks for welcome, rooms, food, location, excellent staff in every department, all in all the perfect spot for a break from normal life! Made feel like a family member returning home (even though had never been there before)
Great walk on the beach right beside hotel. Mc Nutts coffee shop home baking great atmosphere. Downings PERFECT in every way, even the weather! Look no further than Beach Hotel Downings for your next break away.

Spent the weekend here whilst visiting friends who live locally. Food was first class. Premises were absolutely spotless. The hospitality afforded us was truly magnificent. Can't wait to return in the summer.

I stayed twice in the beach hotel as I was diving in Donegal The room was great and on both occassions I had to be up and away before breakfast and the hotel prepared tea and toast for me and gave me a large lunch of sandwiches which kept me going the whole next day
I had a wet undersuit and the hotel dried the suit on both occasions This made my next days diving very comfortable
I spoke with a girl by the name of Anna and later spoke with the son of manager who was most sociable
The rooms were great and the staff very sociable
Highly recommended

Had a lovely few days here at the start of the year. The room was modern with a nice en-suite shower room. It was spacious with well appointed facilities.The food in the hotel Bar was great on both nights and the music was of the highest order. All staff were friendly and attentive. Nearby are a few lovely bars, and then that gorgeous scenery on the Atlantic drive, with remote and romantic beaches.Top notch golf at Rosapenna is on the doorstep. What more could anyone want?
