Considering the size of the town, the hotel was nice. It is older, but has a ton of character and the service was great.

A Fabulous Hotel
What an excellent hotel. I spent a lot of time reading reviews of hotels in Donegal before picking this one. It wasn't quite in the area that we wanted to be in, but was worth the longer drive.
The bedroom was clean, comfortable and extremely large. The bathroom had a separate bath and shower.
Breakfast was delicious. There was a wide selection of pastries, fresh fruit, bread and yogurts as well as the traditional full Irish. The breakfast was served buffet style so you could eat as much as you wanted. The restaurant itself was beatifully rustic.
I had two spa treatments, the four layer facial and the Jessica pedicure. The facial was the best that i've ever had.
Would highly recommend this hotel to all. We will be returning next spring!
Good hotel and restaurant
Stayed in a suite at the Mill Park Hotel. It is located about a 10 minute walk from Donegal town, however, we didn't leave the hotel. The bar was nice, food in the restaurant was excellent and accommodation was clean and modern. Hotel has gym facilities and a small pool and jacuzzi. I din't use the pool but be warned - you must buy a hat to enter the pool and I think I saw a sign stating towels were Euro 2 to borrow.
Our room was clean and comfortable. The shower was small, there was no bath, the room was quiet which was nice but the bed was smaller than expected for a suite. Tea and coffee making facilities were available in the room.
The hotel was better than expected and good for a night away or a function. It does lack certain things hence its 3 star rating. For example, there was no water in the room, napkins in the restaurant were paper, there was no bath, towels in the room are tiny (not bath towels), the toilet paper comes out of a dispense in single sheets etc!!
Would be a good spot to spend a few days exploring Donegal.
One word, GREAT!
5 stars all the way. The staff working here are great people and an asset to the hotel in every way. The room was beautiful and it was very clean and the service was excellent. My only wish is that I could have stayed longer. I hope to return to Donegal someday and when I do, I'll be staying at the Mill Park Hotel. :)
This is an oasis.
This is an outstanding hotel. The hotel itself is very pretty. The rooms were nice. They were a decent size, well appointed and clean. The restaurant served great good and had a wonderful staff. The staff at the front desk was very helpful. It is within walking distance of town yet set in a quiet location. We were there for three nights and would definitely recommend it.
Just returned from a week in Donegal. Stayed in Mill Park hotel for 1 night and regretted we didnt stay there for the entire week. Rooms lovely - all very new and clean, food fab in bar (didnt get to eat in restaurant), leisure centre great as well. Couldn't fault this hotel on anything, would recommend highly.
Excellent All Rounder
My Husband and I booked the Mill Park Hotel in Donegal for our Easter break 2005. We had never been there before, I had found it on a search of Donegal Hotels. We booked a weekend offer of two nights bed and breakfast and one evening meal in a standard double room for a very reasonable price. When we arrived we had a pleasant surprise to discover we had been upgraded to an executive room free of charge.
The hotel is full of old charm, the entrance/reception area is decorated with old wood paneling and seating is a range of high back arm chairs along with soft sofa's. There is an excellent atmosphere with people relaxing over a drink while mellow chatter goes on in the background, making this area warm and welcoming to new visitors.
We checked in and when we reached our room on the first floor, we were well satisified with our accommodation, it was very spacious with a seating area and a king size bed, the bathroom was very clean with fresh towels, which were changed every morning.
That night we dined in the restuarant which is also on the first floor, it was very busy and when we had our meal we knew why, the food was excellent, we choose from the set menu included in our price, but my Husband decided he would like his main course from the resturant menu, we asked the waitress was this possible and our reply was "no problem at all Sir". The service was excellent,even though the resturant was busy everyone got the same individual attention.
We had breakfast the next morning which was very well presented with fruit, cereal, juice and youghart etc, set out on a table to help yourself, followed by a cooked breakfast with tea, coffee and toast. Again the service and freindlness of the staff far out weighed our expectations.
We spent our honeymoon last year in a fabulous 5 star hotel, and we both agreed that the Mill Park Hotel would come close to it for it's standard of service. We will be back and definately be reccommending it to our family and friends.
PS. the leisure facilities were very good, we did get a tour round them but did'nt get the chance to partake.
What a terrific find
Took advantage of a three night special deal and could not believe the value for money. This hotel is right up there in terms of facilities, standards and best of all, friendleness. I cannot rate this hotel highly enough. Will certainly stay there again
I'm just after coming back (4th March 05)from a weekend break in the mill park hotel, we have stayed there 3 times within the last 12 months and every time it was wonderful. The food the staff and the service. on saturday morning i had treatments in the new wellness centre they have opened, the sweedish massage was out of this world. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!!!
Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and general ambianceof the hotel. Nice food and unusual restaurant design. Service was a little slow due to extremely busy period, however courteous staff made up for this. Would like to see a "room only rate" being introduced.

Arrive in Donegal at 3 PM for a 40 minute tour of the castle.
The castle has mostly been restored in the late 1990's after many of the buildings layed in ruins for the past 2 centuries. The great room has a new ceiling and flooring in the original style. The beautiful mantlepiece was found on the grounds and has been placed in the great …

Donegal are the current champs
Killeybegs - village
... right in the middle of the city, pretty neat. The castle had been burned to the ground as one point instead of surrendering it in war, so some of it has been rebuilt in restoration.
After the castle we stopped at the Abbey Graveyard, lots of super old graves as well as modern ones. Kind of surprised that people are sill being burried in such a tiny graveyard that pretty much looks abandoned.
... bath houses (good for a variety of ailments apparently) and a short coast walk we carried on into County Mayo. Went to Downpatrick Head with its iconic cliffs and caves and spongy grass lumps. There was a big hole about 150m inland that the sea had tunnelled out. Then past a Neolithic site, through another Ballycastle and into the relatively remote northwest corner. We went to stop for the night at a tiny little village called Rossbeg in the church yard which we ...
We enjoyed a great night of Irish traditional music in a pub, The Reel Inn, several local musicians played accordions and guitars and they were joined by three French musicians, playing accordion, fiddle and bodhran. Presumably Irish music is big in France as when we were in France, we met a young postal worker who played in an Irish band.
From Donegal we drove up through ...
