The coastline in this part of Ireland isn’t short of hotels and restaurants with magnificent views, but this one is up there with the best. The dining room looks straight out over Donegal Bay, framed by distant mountains—it’s a magnificent spot from which to watch the sun go down. The Pier Restaurant is good, with plenty of local seafood options; the bar has live music most weekends in summer. Bedrooms are fairly basic, but pleasant and well equipped. Special offers are often available, especially out of season. The only negative is the hotel’s popularity with wedding and pre-wedding parties; you might want to check whether any are planned over the dates of your stay.
