Guesthouses and B&Bs
This friendly, modern hotel overlooking the harbour has comfortable, minimalist rooms, a decent bar and a small gym with jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.
Lake Of Shadows Hotel
A fine rose-coloured Victorian facade brings to mind past generations coming to ‘take the sea air’ at this 23-room hotel. Alas, while rooms are attractive, some have an unfortunate rising damp problem. The location is lovely, though, and staff helpful...
Arnolds Hotel & Riding Stables
Open since 1922, this family-run hotel has comfortable but rather corporate rooms. The friendly staff with their suggestions for local activities, helpful attitude and warm welcome more than make up for this though...
Mill Park Hotel
A modern hotel with corporate styling in the bedrooms and more rustic but contemporary public areas, this is a decent but characterless option in need of a little attention to detail.
Abbey Hotel Donegal
Housing 118 rooms, this enormous stone building surprises with its contemporary interior. Rooms out the back overlook the river. The hotel offers access to a gym and has a stylish restaurant and bar.
Central Hotel Donegal
The Central offers decent but dated rooms, regular live music in the bar, and a leisure centre with pool and gym.
Letterkenny Court Hotel
Behind its rose-pink facade, this historic building on the main drag is deceptively large, housing 83 fresh-as-spring rooms. About a dozen pubs are within staggering distance of the front door. Some rooms and all public areas have wi-fi...
Station House Hotel Letterkenny
Conveniently located in the centre of town, this large, modern hotel has 81 minimalist rooms with rich red bedspreads, low lighting and glass-panelled bathrooms...
Once an extravagant 19th-century fishing lodge, this beachside hotel has been modernised and lost much of its character. The views are still spectacular and the rooms are comfortable.
The sprawling, silvery-grey Clanree is just as you come off the main roundabout from Derry or Sligo...
Once Viscount Enniskillen's holiday pad, this 260-year-old building later served as an altogether more restrained convent. It's now closer to its original purpose, housing a 60-bed rock-themed hostel, with vinyl records on the walls and a piano.
The Ritz Budget Accommodation
The name might be ironic, but this superbly run 38-bed IHO hostel in the town centre has ritzy facilities including an enormous kitchen with an island workbench and dishwasher, colourful rooms with private bathroom and TVs, and a laundry...
Donegal Town Independent Hostel
Run by an energetic couple, rooms at this IHH hostel 1.2km northwest of town off the Killybegs Rd (N56) have quirky murals – from technicolour landscapes to glow-in-the-dark night skies – and some have water views.
Tullyarvan Mill Hostel Buncrana
This excellent purpose-built hostel was recently attached to the historic Tullyarvan Mill. Set amid riverside gardens, it also hosts regular cultural events and art exhibits. Head north out of town on the R238 and follow the signs.
Great views of the lake are just one of this B&B’s selling points. In business for 40 years, it has evolved into a large rambling house with charming rooms and an old-fashioned garden. It’s 4km north of Donegal town off the Letterkenny road (N15)...
Spotless dorms, most with private bathroom, and private rooms are tucked into cosy corners of this lovingly restored former mill house...
Sandrock Holiday Hostel
The cinematically changing view from this IHH hostel – above a rocky bay on the western side of the headland – will take your breath away. Seafood can sometimes be bought straight off the boats out front...
The Arches Country House
A modern dormer bungalow in a tranquil spot overlooking the lake, this welcoming B&B is a bucolic getaway, yet just five minutes' drive from Donegal town...
The Cove Lodge
You'll find subtle floral patterns and rustic charm in the four ground-floor rooms of this tranquil B&B. Located just out of town in a rural setting, it's a taste of Irish country living with all its renowned warmth and friendliness intact...
Gallaghers Hotel is in the heart of Letterkenny, in the main shopping and restaurant district. It has air-conditioned rooms with free Wi-Fi, a bistro restaurant, and free parking...
