Kelly's Inn

Reviewed 20 August 2012

I regularly stop at Kelly's en-route from Inishowen to Dublin and every meal I have enjoyed here is exactly what I ordered. The staff are pleasant and attentive, the ambiance and decor is non-descript but this is not the place to go for atmosphere, it is the food that keeps the customer coming back. I normally have breakfast or late evening meals and the quality to value ratio is the best on the 250KM route. Some places on this route might serve 3 good meals out of four but Kelly's is always up to standard time after time. It also has very clean toilets which is very important to regular travellers.

Stayed in Kelly's Inn following a day's activities at Todd's Leap as this was part of the overall package. I and those I was with were quite surprised as we thought the Todd's Leap deal would, if you will forgive my assumption, be something cheap and cheerful but basic. How wrong we were. From the onset the Staff who we met when we arrived and throughout our stay made to feel like a regular.

On booking in we were shown, not directed to our rooms, and the conversation between ourselves and the member of staff was natural and flowing which was very pleasant given some of the surly characters I have encountered in the past.

As for the bedroom itself I was taken aback by the size and it equaled if not bettered some of the hotel rooms we have stayed in that boasted a 4* rating. Similarly the bathroom was a good size with a full size bath with shower. If there was one wee niggle it was the towels they were so rough they could have removed the top layer of skin if you weren't careful. Perhaps it was the water up round that of part of the country or the detergent but a wee drop of fabric softener wouldn't go amiss.

We had booked an evening meal for the 4 of us and it was faultless. The restaurant was bright and airy was laid out well with enough space to enjoy a conversation without being overheard but without feeling your were isolated. There was a large party attending with enough waiting staff to ensure everyone was kept happy. As for the meal itself it was presented well and was warm, tasty, filling and very well priced. Following our meal we headed to the bar and the same friendly relaxed chat from the bar staff was evident here as well.

The following morning after an excellent nights sleep we went down to get our breakfast in the restaurant. Again it couldn't be faulted. Friendly staff and probability one of the best "Ulster fry's" I have every tasted and I know this may sound silly but the best toast ever. Not sure how they did whether it was under a gas grill or in an electric toaster but the toast alone, never mind everything else would be worth a return visit.

So if you are in the area and need an overnight stop, or if your planning to stay in the area for a few days to explore the wonderful countryside or are simply in need of a hearty breakfast in a welcoming environment do yourself a favour stop of at Kelly's Inn

Driving back from Donegal with a post-wedding hangover. We turned down the A45 diner along the road and stopped here. Big place (lots of parking) with plenty of staff. Served us quickly with big pots of tea and a very tasty soup and warm scone. The fish and chips that other people ordered looked tasty too.

We were booked for 3 nights and ended up staying 7 nights. The room was not the most modern but was very spacious, clean, quiet, comfortable and included a small table and chairs and a desk. The bathroom was clean and the linen changed daily, although this was not requested. The breakfast selection limited but was quite sufficient. Meals were available all day and the evening meals were reasonably priced and generous. The staff were extremely friendly and agreeable. Wifi was included and worked well.
