We had a fabulous weekend stay at the Tara hotel, helped by the weather of course, but the staff at the Tara really went above and beyond, especially on Saturday night when they catered for our large party for dinner by providing their function suite for us. All the staff were excellent and very friendly throughout our staff, I just hope we weren't too much hassle for them! Thanks for a great stay, will definitely be staying again

We had a wee family break here and I was delighted with service we received during our stay. Staff were friendly and very helpful, the rooms were immaculate. We had a dinner in the hotel restaurant and we couldn’t fault it in any way for variety and service. Ideal location over looking the Killybegs harbour, my husband is 70 in November and wants to return to celebrate in a suite. We recommend a visit and then a return visit. Many thanks for making our stay so enjoyable 😊

The hotel was great! Nice location and lovely area! The only thing i will say is the breakfast can be a bit better. Also, it would had been nice if the gym was open earlier than 7 a.m.

Wonderful stay at the Tara Hotel. Receptionist was very welcoming and informative. Rooms were clean and spacious and lots of plugs for charging all your gadgets. Sleep was extremely comfortable and breakfast next morning was perfect, the full Irish really set me up for the rest of the day. Many thanks x

This is a lovely hotel... and a great base for exploring the Donegal coastline. The staff throughout the hotel are very friendly and the wonderful breakfast will set you up for the day ahead. I had dinner in the bar each evening and the choice and standard of the food served are both excellent. I'm looking forward to going back.

5.00

Great pale, great view, great staff.

4.75

Comfortable room and great view of the harbour. Shared balcony with high parapet rather unusual: not really a place to sit out. Superb breakfast with lots of options cooked to order. Dinner with local seafood and restaurant/bar service also very good. More expensive than similar hotels we used on this trip, but I thought it was worth that bit extra.

5.00

Easy to book online, friendly and clean with a lovely room and a nice restaurant. Will be happy to stay again the next time we're knocking around Killybegs. Cheers.

young Lady on check in desk at time of check-in is a credit to your company. I can why she is the front of the house. Ladies in restaurant also were great. very friendly and made sure that all was ok during meals. I cant wait to stay again and I hope that every stay is the same as it is one of the best places I have stayed. also the restaurant has to be the best I have ever had an evening meal in. food was cooked to perfection and booming with flavour. I have stayed in 5* hotels that were not even close to this place. staff should give themselves a pat on the back. job well done

Nice harbour hotel. Good value for money. Clean, well located hotel with exceptionally friendly staff. Grocery shops nearby. Ask for an upgrade for a room with a harbour view...it's worth it. Full Irish breakfast was delicious!

5.00

Absolutely fantastic! Girls that work the reception are a real credit to the business, very friendly and would go out of their way to help.

5.00

My stay was thoroughly enjoyable and I found the staff extremely helpful. Especially considering I left a bag and a tie in my room when checking out. The gluten free bread made in-house in the hotel restaurant was the best gf bread I have ever had.

Friendly staff and the food had been outstanding!!

5.00

excellent value overall.

Had a lovely relaxing weekend break at the Tara hotel. Our room had a lovely harbour view, while the rooms need updating they are clean and everything you need is there except maybe shower caps. Breakfast was hot and plentiful and lovely, evening meal was very nice too and service very good. All the staff were very friendly especially the girl on reception during the day.. We are already planning our next visit for my husbands birthday..

5.00

Wonderful stay right on the water with friendly and helpful staff. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone in the Killybegs area

5.00

Fantastic weekend. Tara Hotel was a real treat with our room overlooking the harbour the views were fantastic. Having coffee in the morning and being able to open the patio door to take in the view was amazing. We ate in the bar on the Saturday evening and the food was delicious. Breakfast on the Sunday was excellent also and the heated plates an added bonus to keep the food warm. Have to commend you on your policy of 12 o'clock of vacating your room, this really did mean alot. Excellent stay all round and we will be back :) Highly recommended.

5.00

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. I would recommend this hotel.

Hi I really enjoyed my recent stay in the Tara Hotel. Your staff are very friendly and made me feel very welcome. I will be recommending your hotel to any of my friends heading to Donegal in the future.

5.00

Had a fantastic stay loved the hotel our room had a great view overlooking the harbour. Food was good. Staff very pleasant and helpful. I would certainly recommend and hope to stay again.

5.00

The Tara Hotel is a delightful gem! Our room was spotless with a fabulous view. We ate all our meals in the restaurant and each one was exquisite. Most impressive was the helpful and accommodating staff. Our stay at the Tara was the highlight of our trip! We can't thank you all enough! Still catching up with being back at work, but I will be thrilled to share my experience on TripAdvisor, etc. Will write soon. All my best from NYC, Patricia McGuinness

5.00

I was particularly impressed that you rang me the day before to confirm my booking. I liked the terrace outside my room with a view across the harbour and bay. Thoroughly enjoyed the Irish breakfast. One thing outside your control was a generator that ran day and night on the quayside for one of the boats. I'm a bit picky about noise because I live in a rural area where it is very quiet. I had a great weekend celebrating my brother's sixtieth.

4.25

I was happy with the Hotel overall, got a really nice room with balcony. The room was spacious, general double room size, not a small kind of single room as many hotels have for single guests. Wifi was working in the room as well, which I was not sure about at the time of booking. The view from the dining room is nice, the hotel is very central. The breakfast was nice. Although I have to look for the staff when I arrived. She indicated that there will be a hot breakfast cooked for me soon, which I was waiting on. Then only later turned out that the hot breakfast is actually carvery. So there was a bit of misunderstanding around the breakfast service, which I felt uncomfortable about. Overall my stay was good and I was happy enough. The price was ok, but not really cheap. Probably because I only booked it a day in advance.

4.00

Myself and my brother had a very nice stay at the Tara and all the staff were friendly and efficient particularly the young lad in the leisure club who was very apologetic about the steam room being out of service and most helpful

4.75

I think the charge of 4 pounds per person was a bit steep for carring a tray to the room

5.00

Our favorite town in Ireland. We loved watching the boats come and go from the balcony in our room. Towns people were very friendly and gracious. The hotel and staff were fabulous!!

4.75

We found the stay very pleasant. Staff were very friendly especially reception staff. Room was very clean and spacious and breakfast was lovely.

3.75

We had a great time at the Tara, food was excellent, comparable with anywhere we've been. View out over the harbour was stunning and what made our wekend special was our day out in the little classic car form golden oldies.

4.25

We both mostly enjoyed our stay but we felt the main bar man made us feel uncomfortable. He turned over the channel on the tv while we were watching it then he turned it off when he was finished. The older locals seemed to get a better service. It's a lovely bar but he made it out to feel like a backwater local. Another couple expressed the same views they went so far as to sit in the wee bar. The atmosphere was not suited to anyone under 50 who wasn't from the area. We might stay again but we will look to see what is available again. All we wanted was a friendly bar with a bit of background noise where we could talk and enjoy each others company.

5.00

My only negative comment was that the wifi was quite slow

4.25

This was our second visit and my husband and I had a very enjoyable relaxing time at the Tara Hotel and will certainly visit again.

5.00

My room was upgraded from a single room to a double room with shared balcony and a view of the harbour for the duration of my four day stay which was much appreciated. The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The food in the restaurant was very good. I am looking forward to staying in this hotel again, and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to holiday in the area. Excellent value for money and great service.

Fantastic Hotel, great value, great staff, lovely rooms.

4.75

was only a very short stay but i will be travelling back to the town again this year. the only contact i had with the staff was the receptionist on arrival and i have to say i found the girl so pleasant and welcoming. cant see why i couldnt book the room through the reception by phone as i rather deal with someone in person instead of the web page for the same price ?????. if the price is right i will use again this year.

4.25

we enjoyed our stay

5.00

Brighter lighting in the bathroom would be all that I would add. Very nice, very comfortable. Staff were all as pleasant and kind as could be!

4.00

Very nice room and a comfortable stay. Reasonably priced, maybe slightly high in present climate. Bar area lacks character and comfort.

5.00

As always no fault found. Excellent stay. Looking forward to going back.

4.75

Excellent hotel facilities and the quality of staff helped to ensure that this was a very enjoyable first-time visit to Killybegs. Advance notice of "ad hoc" parking arrangements would have been helpful but we managed! Hope to be back for a longer stay next time. Thank you.

5.00

The Tara Hotel was lovely. They acamodated our large group well. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was good. The rooms were lovely and the location was excellent.

5.00

I found the Tara to be one of the most comfortable hotels I have ever stayed at. The Carr family had a terrific time there. I was sorry not to meet John Paul as I know his cousin Cornelius Cunningham from St Boniface in Wesley Hills NY, but I guess he is a busy man. Patsy

5.00

overall a very good hotel , good food and excellent service from very attentive staff. would stay here again.

Very comfortable but thought the cost for the time of year was a bit expensive

4.25

Hope to retunr soon. Suite room was excellent.

4.75

Quite happy overall for one night stay. Staff was very friendly. However, bathtub was too short and shallow (can survive that) and there was no shower hose (that's really weird and impractical)! You may consider to approach modern standards when renovating next time.

4.25

Everything that you would expect from a 3 star hotel.

4.25

Very pleasant and enjoyable stay would stay again and recommend to friends

4.75

Only comment is bar/food staff (2 young girls) on first night 22 November were miserable but the second night 23 November (2 gentlemen) had great customer care attitude!

4.25

The food in the restaurant was devine, best monkfish I ever had.

4.50

i have to say that everything was up to high standards at the hotel , we were 3 adults in the one room which was very spacious.

Tara Hotel is really recommendable. Nice place, location, rooms, staff and the best bar/restaurant in town.

4.25

Food v good and warm welcome as always. Two simple improvements would go along way to making stay more enjoyable. Sound proof/ draught proff the windows and upgrade pillow to a bettr quality.
