Fantastic hotel in Donegal
This is a superb country hotel in a lovely area of Donegal. Our twin, ocean facing rooms were spacious, very comfortable and had fantastic views. My Mum, brother and I loved them. The dinner menu in the bar was varied and we enjoyed all our choices. Mum had an afternoon in the spa and had a great experience. The staff were very pleasant and helpful throughout our 5 night stay. This felt like a luxury experience. We enjoyed very much and fully intend to return for a future visit. I have recommended the hotel to friends.
