Lovely hotel in great location

We stayed 1 night in Donegal town for our visit to Slieve League Cliffs. The hotel is beautiful and full of character. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean, a bit small for family of 4 but fine for our short stay. We ate in the bar, food and service was excellent. Only downfall for us was trying to find parking. Overall great stay.
