The Abbey Hotel
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Donegal Town
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Have just returned from a 4 day stay at the Abbey Hotel. We were a group of 26. We were all delighted with the accommodation at the Abbey Hotel. Our package included an evening meal which was excellent each night. Our trip was organised with J McGinley Coach company, our driver Peadar couldn't have been better. He was our tour guide for 3 of the four days we were there and he brought us to unseen and unheard of parts of Donegal. He had a great knowledge of his home county and great pride in showing it off at it's best. We were more than surprised to hear of the bad weather in the south, we had the best of weather during our stay in Donegal

Room Tip: rooms to the front can be noisy as there is a bus stop just at the front door of the hotel directly...

Stayed in Abbey w/c25 Feb.The rooms are fine we had one overlooking the square which was nice.Staff very friendly and helpful and music in the bar every night which suited the age group.
Food was ok but a very limited menu and a bit boring with potatoes and veg every night but this might have been because we were with a coach party and it was a very cheap week .The waitress did get me food that wasnt on the menu on a few nights.The menu in the bar was varied and the food served there looked great.Had lunch in the bar a few days and it was very reasonable.

just had a two night break at the abbey hotel, and was impressed . The rooms are fairly basic but they are clean and comfortable,with good heating and loads of hot water. The staff are very good and always a smileing face to be seen. the food was also very good,with live music in the bar both nights. We had a realy good time and we will be back. We got a special offer of £59 each for two nights b&b, super value.

My son aged 9 and myself are just back from a 2 night stay.Room was excellent but I would really have loved more than one electric socket in the room-maybe that's something the hotel could look into? Food very,very good .Staff were all excellent and of course the hotel is right in the centre of Donegal town which is a big bonus.Would also have preferred individually cooked breakfasts instead of buffet breakfasts as toast etc was "coldish" but apart from the buffet breakfasts and lack of sockets in the bedroom this is a lovely,friendly,welcoming hotel

Thanks to everyone!!

Room Tip: Standard room was excellent
