Off to Donegal the next morning for a college reunion with all the lads and of course Mc Geady's wedding! Good old Lenny picks me up in Monaghan and fills me in on all his stories and tips for SA as he is just back after a couple of Months! Arriving into letterkenny I check into the Clanree and throw my things into my weird smelling room before …
... is truly breathtaking as well, situated along the Northern Central coast of Ireland it is very mountainous and provides some of the green grass and rocky vistas that Ireland is known for. While it was certainly not “on the way”, both Bree and I agree that this was a definite highlight of our trip to Ireland. After taking in the causeway we made a beeline for Dublin in order to hop a flight to Copenhagen, Denmark.
... opt to stay and push our luck. We are in luck! Around 10pm the musicians start, and no one has asked us to leave! Not only that, but more children enter the bar. The only downside is we can't hear the music from where we sit at the front of the bar, as they are playing without amplification in the back. I walk back just to see if there is a table closer and lo and behold there is an empty table beside the musicians! We stay till 11:30, the boys and us enjoying the ...
... the distance but no hexagon rocks. As we turn a bend, there! Below us are hexagonal rocks! Not as many as we would likely see at the Causeway, but we can see them! The coastline is rugged and majestic and waves splash onto the hexagonal rocks. We continue our drive along the Causeway Coastal Route and shortly see the ruins of Dunluce Castle, ancient seat of the Earl of Antrim. On a stormy night in 1639, dinner was interrupted after most of the kitchen (and ...
... Mary , St Joseph, and St John appear. We had a hard time finding our Premier Inn cuz it was new and not in our GPS but Wayne at the Inn is so nice and helpful!!!

Historical Traveler Reviews Clanree Hotel Letterkenny
I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions and will continue to do so.The hotel itself is clean and comfy and the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are tastefully decorated. The hotel is situated on the main street in the town and is close to all amenities- there is also a carpark at the rear of the hotel which is extremely convenient! There are many good bars in the town just a few steps in either direction from the front door of the hotel or you can relax in the hotel bar which also serves tasty treats all day long.
Definitely well worth a visit!
I had the pleasure of spending 1 night at the Holiday Inn Letterkenny and I must say I really enjoyed my stay. The rooms are large ours had a king bed. The food is wonderful and the bar was fun as well. The staff were great. There is a great pool. If you want to get out for a few hours the town is close by with lots of night life as well as great restaurants. Across the street is a great little bar. I would definately stay here again. The only thing I would comment on is that the shower curtain is too small and the water covers the floor when one is taking a shower apart from that I would rate it 99 out of 100!!!
there is a car park at this hotel,with a subsidised rate.my wife and i recently stayed there at a rate of gbp (octopus travel) 23.50 each for a double room with bed and breakfast. lettterkenny is busy,yes but if you do not want hustle and bustle,do your research and stay out of the town. this is a fine hotel with a great staff,good restaurant,breakfast which is unsurpassed,free newspapers,etc nd to be quite honest if you find fault with it then you need to pay 5 star for what you want,however think about it you get 5 star here at a very reasonable rate
Out of this world.
Just could not have asked for a better weekend. there was a big party of us, and the ages of this party were from late teens to late fifties.
This hotel catered for all of us. Plus the location and people were so helpful. if your going to Ireland pick this place 11 out of 10.
I recently stayed for the weekend with a large group of friends in the Quality Hotel in Letterkenny and having stayed in other hotels in the town, we all found it to be excellent value for money. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the location was so central and accomodation couldn't be faulted. I would have no hesitation in recommending it, and we will definitely be staying there again in the future!!
Stayed here for a week, bar closes at 12 every night, night porter does not answer the locked door either. The noise from the bar filters into most of the rooms, they ran out of cold tap water one night !
Management dodged me when i complained. Locals told me it has gone down hill since the brought in new managment. Never again, if u expect any sort of 'Quality' stay clear of this one.
I recently enjoyed the pleasure of staying in one of Letterkenny's finest hotels! In my opinion this hotel is streets ahead of anywhere else in the town. I read a review that someone from N.Y wrote and I was very suprised by it! In my opinion I think having a busy bar in hotel makes it. I love going for a drink while I'm away. This hotel has a great atmosphere I have to say I really enjoyed my stay! Letterkenny itself is a lovely place to stay with great bars such as BAR MONO & THE OASIS. I also enjoyed seening the familiar face of SUBWAY SANWICH BAR.
Nice Place to stay
I stayed in this hotel last month and although the hotel itself is very nice we had our fare share of problems. I would like to say any one planning to stay there in future will possibly have the time of their lives I think it was just a situation of bad luck for me and my sister.
This hotel is located on the busy main street and has no parking.It is VERY noisey The bar noise filters into all the rooms and doors slam well into the night. The fire alarm has a mind of its own tooThe NEW management of this hotel are UNFRIENDLY and RUDE , not a patch on the pre2003 team. The food is some of the worst i have ever come across.SEEK ALTERNATIVE HOTELS, THIS ONE IS THE LAST PORT IN A STORM.
Fantastic fitness suite and pool
We got a room for 74 euro's a night. This hotel is absolute luxury. The pool and fitness room are excelent as are the resturaunt and bar. Opposite is a friendly pub with pool table and occasional entertainment. Letterkenny is about a mile away with a greater selection of bars and returaunts.(London)derry is around 20 miles away and all the attractions of Donegal are on youre doorstep. I'D DEFINETELY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL
