“Fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Arriving into the hotel I parked in the open air carpark behind the hotel and was directed to the underground as it would be easier and safer the girl on reception was lovely, really nice and friendly and made us feel so welcome. I didn't catch her name but she had a little green/blue in the her hair and is well worth talking to for anything you might need around Letterkenny. The room was lovely and clean and I slept really well. Breakfast was good, the usual cereal, fruit and fry though. I'm looking forward to going back hopefully

Had a midweek stay in the hotel and experienced a wonderful meal with friends. The serving staff were very friendly, the room was lovely and clean and the decor was very nice too. Great location in the town and the price was excellent too for both the food and accommodation. Would def be back !

On checking in we discovered that our room was a smoking one even though we did mention a non smoking one on reservation. We complained to the reception and we were straight away given an upgrade. This time a non smoking one ! The room was clean with all the basic facilities. Breakfast was fine. One morning there were no soda bread (which we really like). It was brought in straight away...and with a smile. All the staff were very courteous, helpful and fabulous. A private parking is a definite plus. Will definitely choose this hotel again..

Dear Celine M,

It's always great to read about how great the team of people who work in Gallaghers Hotel are. They work hard to ensure that every guest stay is special, whether it's in housekeeping to ensure every room is spotless, from reception who deal with every enquiry with professionalism and attention to detail, to the food & beverage staff who love nothing more that having a chat about your time in Letterkenny or to share the secret of their amazing Mojitos!

I will share your comments with the team and I hope I can welcome you back to Gallaghers Hotel soon.

Kind regards,

Jonathan Topping

Just spent a very happy two days in Gallagher’s with “the gals” whilst visiting the area for a friend’s wedding. Gallagher’s is the perfect base for a weekend of fun – we were within minutes of a selection of restaurants and bars and critically the hotel served a fantastically cheap fat-laden breakfast for when you are feeling like doom from a night of Guinness.

The hotel was generally quiet and peaceful, apart from both nights I heard girls cackling and squealing in the corridors around 4/5am. But they were clearly having an absolute blast and my bed was so wonderfully comfy that it barely impacted on my sleep/stay. However, if you are a misery guts and a bit of laughter (or 40 girls dressed in learner plates, willy shaped headbands etc) is going to upset you then it may be one to avoid.

Dear JokeswithOakes,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review of you recent stay in Gallaghers Hotel. I'm delighted you enjoyed our "fat-laden" breakfast - which I love! But I should point out that there are always healthy options available like porridge, dried fruit, fresh sliced fruit salad, and granola.

I hope you'll be back in Ireland, Donegal and Letterkenny soon and I can welcome you back to Gallaghers Hotel soon.

Kind regards,

Jonathan Topping
