My wife and I stayed for 2 nights B&B at the end of March to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. We booked this hotel on the great reviews on Tripadvisor and it was an excellent choice. We have stayed in numerous Donegal hotels over the years,including 4/5 star ones, but this was better than most of them. Charlie and Mairead were excellent hosts, friendly and chatty. Eddie was also a real asset to the hotel behind the bar, apologies for keeping you up late ! Room 206 was great, lots of room,ocean views and comfy seating. Breakfast was freshly cooked (No corporate hotel hotplate buffets here, and thank god for it) and was superb both mornings, served in a really nice restaurant. We'd never been to this part of Donegal before, but after seeing/walking some of the stunning beaches we'll be back. This hotel was superb - there was a hotel inspector staying whilst we were here - we felt sorry for her- she was wasting her time staying here !! Sorry we missed you Charlie on checking out, see you again soon. Norman & Ashley. Co. Down.

Room Tip: Even number rooms seem to have the ocean views which is at the rear of the hotel.

Stayed for 2 nights b&b and 1 evening meal. Charlie and Mairaid made us feel very welcome on arrival and offered local knowledge and weather forecasts during our stay. The whole hotel was spotless, bright and warm, the food was great and the staff were excellent. Looking forward to returning with friends.

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.
