“Good choice for short stay”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Very friendly proprietress, personal touch.
Very good location just off the main square in Donegal town, very convenient for attending a wedding in the Abbey Hotel. Good value for money, breakfast good quality.
Room clean and functional, if not on the small side.
Only downside, room cold on arrival mid afternoon, but we did not ask for the heat to be switched on as we were going out in a while.
overall would recommend for short stay.

Was grand, room was okay, they mattress sheet came off in the middle of the night so this wasn't great. An okay place to stay for the money you pay. Not much else to say, just trying to get 200 characters

The Railway Lodge is a great choice for those wishing to stay within a minute's walk to the town center and, yet, be far enough from the traffic noice to be able to get a good night's sleep. The hostess, Sheila, was all that anyone could ask for and she cooks a terrific full Irish breakfast!

We stayed here recently while on the way back from Inishowen. I highly recommend the Railway Lodge, the rooms are lovely,spotlessly clean, very comfortable.The breakfast was excellent.
Sheila was very welcoming, warm and friendly, we arrived late at night, Sheila brought tea and biscuits to our room. We will definitely be back. Thank you Sheila.

We stayed at the Railway Lodge for 1 night ahead of a wedding, and could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation. The location was perfect, Sheila was amazing, so extremely helpful with anything that we needed and the room was comfortable with wifi and tea/coffee available. Would definitely recommend!!!

Stayed for one night and was very happy with the hotel. We were there for a wedding at St Patricks church which was in walking distance of the Lodge. Making the location perfect as it was also a 2 min walk to the town centre with ample choice of restaurants and pubs.

Very happy with the accommodation and staff. Room was comfortable , wifi connection worked and the host was friendly and helpful.

Thanks for a great night in Donegal Town.

Stayed 3 nights April 2013 for some hiking and touring around Co Donegal. Sheila was wonderful, welcoming and a pleasure to chat with each morning about what to see and
how to see it. Great sleep, room very clean,comfortable and quiet. A short walk from the
town centre keeps you close to everything yet no noise at all. Breakfast delicious.
Wi-fi, TV, ensuite, plenty of off street parking....its all there. Co Donegal is spectaular in its beauty,the people are very warm. Good recommendations about where to eat and local music as well. Sheila is sincerely interested in your stay and how to make it better. Would love to go back !
