I have stayed at the Abbey Hotel more often than I can remember over those past thirty years and I always look forward to both staying there and enjoying Donegal Town's many attractions. The Abbey has a great location, great staff, great rooms, great breakfasts and is always busy. The Ashdown Bar of the hotel is hugely popular with visitor and local alike.

Although it doesn't have its own car park, there are two large public car parks within 100 yards and the hotel will provide even the parking permit for the motoring resident. The Abbey offers astonishing value. The only downside is that it seems to cater eternally for coach tours also.

We were in Donegal for a wedding and chose to stay at this hotel for our 3 day visit. We had a truly lovely time. The hotel is right in the middle of town with a taxi rank at the front door. There is no guest parking but you are given a ticket for the public car park, just a 2 minute walk away - in front of the police station, so very safe!! Room was lovely, large with a double and single bed. Breakfast was delicious with a good variety of food available. We had bar food one night and that was also very good. Wi-Fi is available in the reception area, not so good in the bedrooms. (didn't work for us most of the time) We would recommend this hotel for a holiday in Donegal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street particularly at the weekends.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights as part of coach trip late February.
Comfortable clean and roomy bedroom and bathroom, pleasant staff and great breakfast to get you started in the morning.
A personal Like was the use of a tot sheet on the bed along with the duvet.

I planned my sister's hen party in the Abbel hotel earlier this month and I have to say-from the very first phone call when I made enquiries to the minute 40 hens left the hotel the service was first class. I worked with the hen party co-ordinator Angela who basically organised the whole thing for me. When we arrived staff had the room lists sorted and were extrememly patient while I sorted out the payment for the party. A fanastic reception team. I also needed assistance in setting up a slideshow..again nothing was too much trouble for anyone there was a very helpful employee who set the whole thing up for. The manager also checked in to make sure everything was running smoothly. The waitresses set up the room for dinner and it was amazing..without having to be asked they untangled balloons and set them up beautifully around all the tables and it really looked fantastic. My sister and 40 girls had a night we will never forget and I will definitely be back! i have been spreading the good word ever since! Thank you to the Abbey Hotle for a wonderful night!!
