The Allingham Arms Hotel charged us E280 for a twin room for 3 nights B&B and the tickets to Friday Night, Saturday Afternoon, Saturday Night, Sunday Afternoon & Sunday Night entertainment which is an absolute bargain for a weekend packed with big country stars like Nathan Carter, Lisa McHugh, Ritchie Remo & Patrick Feeney. With the welcome we recieved i would happily pay another E100 on top of this charge as a tip alone!! Fantastic hotel & staff, home away from home, extremely welcoming, clean & tidy and the staff could not do more for you. Great craic from Peter the manager and an all round down to earth fella. Food was beautiful, the views were georgous & i most definitely will be returning ASAP :)

We went as a package deal with 2 nights B&B 1 evening meal and entertainment. Hotel has just been recarpeted and the smell of carpet glue was a bit overpowering. Room didn't have that welcome feel about it, If you are unlucky enough to get a room on the second floor you might need GPS to find your room at the end of the night as the corridors are like a rabbit warren. Our double room onsuite bathroom was beside the fire escape and boy was it cold, a butchers cold store would probably be warmer.Next time we go to Bundoran to see our favourite Artists performing we will check into a recommended hotel and just buy the tickets for the shows at the Allingham. The evening meal was inedible, steak was too tough and the lamb tasted terrible. We dined at a little steakhouse further down the main street and the food and service was excellent. The facilities for the entertainment are very good it's just a pity the rest of the hotel dosen't come up to scratch.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent stay at the Allingham. As you mention yes, the corridors had just been re-carpeted that week. We are investing and improving on all areas of the hotel on a regular basis which normally results in good feedback. All bedrooms throughout the hotel are well signposted on all corridors by large gold and black signs, i'm sorry you found these difficult to follow. With regards to your comments on the cold bathroom and your evening meal, unfortunately we weren't given any opportunity to rectify these issues during your stay as at no point were they brought to our attention. The hotel and staff are well known for their consistent and impeccable customer service and for always offering that 'home from home' experience, i'm sorry you didn't give us an opportunity to show you. Thank you for your positive feedback on the entertainment.

We are a small group of friends from Spain, Scotland and Ireland and had chosen the Allingham for a weekend break. We want to thank Peter and Elizabeth and all the staff of the hotel for making our break just fantastic. From check-in to check-out the experience was a truely Irish welcome. The rooms were very comfortable and spotless, the breakfast and evening meals excellent and above all the staff made this hotel a home from home. We were delighted to also have seen some of Ireland´s great country artists. Thank you to all at the Allingham - we will definitely be returning. A hotel with a lovely warm friendly athmosphere with the beach literally on your doorstep.
