Our stay at this hotel was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing times we have ever spent on holiday. The room and en-suite were spotlessly clean. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The food was of a very high standard. I have stayed in 5 star hotels which would not come close to what this hotel delivers to it's guests. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, without reservation.

We had a great time at the Downings Bay Hotel. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast - freshly cooked every morning was a very good and a perfect start to the day. Dinner was very good value and the meal deal on Thursday was unbeatable - 3 courses and a glass of wine for €16.50 each. The only gripe is the absence of any outdoor space to have a relax and drink at the end of the day.

I really enjoyed my stay at the downings bay hotel very welcoming reception and the food was excellent. The rooms were very clean and warm I would definitely recommend highly to my friends and family I would recommend that when you book ring through to the hotel as their own website Charges ten euro for booking online which is very unusual since it is the hotels own web site. If you book through the hotel direct over the phone you do not incur this fee.

Staff were efficient and very friendly. They found us a table for dinner despite being very busy on a Saturday evening with the football crowd and were still smiling when we saw them again at breakfast the next morning. My only comment is that the corridor to get to the bedroom is very dark and the lights do not come on until well down the corridor in poor visibility. Otherwise a great hotel.

A lovely hotel in a lovely part of the world. I have to say that Downings exceeded my expectations, and I would suggest is operating above the 3 star rating that it has. The restaurant was fantastic with good food very well prepared and presented. The staff, always smiling and friendly, were terrific and delivered all we needed. The rooms are very spacious, well presented and meet all your needs even with extra beds. Extremely good value for money. A great stay enjoyed by both my son and I.

The only complaint we would have is, we were in room 118 and the room next door had an extractor fan for the kitchen or something but the noise was terrible, even after the main fan was turned off at 12 midnight, there was still a hum loud enough to keep us awake. We did not complain because the hotel was fully booked that weekend. however next year I will be requesting a different, quieter room.

Lucky for us it is only a few hours away and we love going on the spur of the moment. We try to go off season because we know how popular The Drownings Bay Hotel is. The welcome is always friendly, the rooms welcoming and totally modern and comfortable. The convenience of a bar that serves wonderful meals in a relaxed atmosphere or the formality of luxury dining in a beautiful dining room are both on offer. We always have a great time.

If I could use a phrase from Irish to describe this hotel it would be AR FHEABHAS. The staff are the most accommodating you could wish for. My wife had a particular medical need which we landed on the staff upon arrival and they rose to the occasion without as much as a blink. A family run hotel makes for that personal touch which makes the experience here an absolute pleasure. Totally recommended for anyone looking good wholesome food, a friendly smile and a leisurely treat.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The one problem I had was the noise on Saturday night. I had a front room (101) and so heard everything (yelling, shrieking, car horns blowing, bottles breaking, etc.) until about 3:00 am. It really was something of a nightmare, especially since I had a long drive the next day. My understanding is that the hotel owns and/or manages the club next to it and so bears some responsibility for the noise. At the very least, especially since the hotel seemed far from full, putting guests in rooms further from the street would be helpful.

good place to stay in the off season, food is excellent but the only gripes I have was the slowness of the service on the one night I dined in the restauraunt. There was a very large party of young people in the restauraunt, possibly up to thirty [in their late teens early 20s] and when I came into the restaurant I had to leave it to go to the bar to get a drink, as we had been sitting here looking at menu for over 5 minutes with no drink and no waiter attention. Clearly the party was not plannned for as the floor staff were over stretched. Also if you are on a pre booked package you have to have it broadcast at your table or on entry to the restauraunt which is hardly discreet. I had booked the room using a credit card on the internet the day before arrival so I assumed the payment had been taken in advance so I was surprised to learn when checking out that this was only for security so I did not pay until check out. My credit card booking seemed to indicate that the money had been taken in advance via internet. Overall this is a lovely small hotel which I would not prefer in high season given the proximity of a huge mobile home park meaning more noise and crowds.. it is a great wee place for visiting out of season as a couple or small family

It is always a pleasure to stay in this hotel, situated in the middle of some of the world's most beautiful scenery. The hotel scores top marks on two fronts. Firstly the friendliness of its staff at all levels. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them and you will never see more smiling faces anywhere. Secondly the rooms. They are large, bright and airy, warm and comfortable and with everything to make your stay enjoyable. They are clean and well serviced every day, again by smiling helpful staff. In short, if you are looking for a pleasant base from which to explore this stunning area, or simply for somewhere to chill out for a few days, this hotel is as good as it gets.

Very pleased with the quality and service received. Far better than we expected. Three small points I would like to raise. 1. I pointed out to our waitress at breakfast on the first morning that adults and children were pawing the bread at the breakfast counter and I felt that there should be a tongs. She said she would see what she could do. I was unable to eat breakfast that morning after witnessing the carry on at the bread. It was disgusting. I mentioned it at reception. Reception acted upon this and at dinner the waitress referred to it as well. The following morning the bread was covered and had tongs. 2. The toaster on the breakfast counter was hopeless. So the second morning we had warm bread rather than toast. 3. I would have liked a face cloth in the bathroom. We had to use a hand towel to wash in the shower.

Good stay overall. Arrived following drive up from Co CLaire. Receptionist was very good. Check in no problem. The room was great - good size, and very clean. Extremely comfortable bed. Ate in the resturant on both nights, the Thursday was best described as manic - very large party, absolutely full/ Excellent meal, the staff did a fantastic job. second night, pretty quiet, again a great meal. Breakfast was good, no complaints there. Overall a good stay, even managed to WALK the Atlantic Drive, mind you needed some liquid refreshment on return to Downings. Would I stay again - Yes.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much and would hope to return soon. The room was excellent size, very fresh and although we were above the restaurant there was no noise disturbance. We brought our extended family who were holidaying in the area for two meals to JC’s and were quite happy with the child friendly atmosphere.

Very pleased with the size of the room and friendliness and willingness of the staff to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Better breakfast than we have had in 5* hotels. Nice to have breakfast freshly cooked and served to us rather than a buffet that has been sitting for a while.

My wife and I stayed in the Downings Bay Hotel during the last week in April 2012, at a time when the weather was not being particularly kind to us. It is at such a time that one appreciates a good hotel to return to in the evening for a bit of warmth and craic. On first entering the hotel, we were struck by the welcoming atmosphere and the smiling faces that greeted us. The rooms are exceptionally large and equipped with everything you need to make a stay truly comfortable. We were also struck by the cleanliness throughout the hotel – the whole place was spotless. The breakfast room is bright and airy, just what is needed first thing in the morning to get one going for the day. And the bar has a warm and almost grotto-like ambience, which is just what is needed after a day tramping over the hills. However, the real strength of the hotel is in its staff, who were so friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We were made to feel at home from the first moment and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. It would be unfair to pick out any individual members of staff, as all contributed to a very happy stay. It is good that the staff are local, as they were able to point us in the right direction to find friends made in past years in the area. I have only two comments on areas where I feel that improvements could be made. Firstly the duvets are far too hot. We ended up sleeping half in – half out. Alternative light duvets available in the room would have been much better than the extra blankets supplied. The second point is that there was no muesli available for breakfast. In these health-conscious days, muesli is an essential. We will be back before too long, but I may put a packet of muesli in the car boot, just in case.

We had a wonderful break at your hotel and really enjoyed our time there. Staff, food and room could not be improved. Next time we visit I would request a room on the other side of the building, we found the sounds of the refrigation units rather loud and the removal of bottles started rather early. Kind Regards Ann McAleer

Hotel was lovely this is the second time i have stayed at this hotel i would recommend it to anyone. I will be back to stay at this hotel. Some of the bar staff were a bit abrupt when asked a question and we thought that they could have been a little more helpful. The food was amazing and lots of compliments to the chefs. Apart from this it was a very nice weekend.

As the Downings in Donegal is only a short 2 hours away we love to just make a phone call to the hotel, hoping we find room available, hop in the car and are transported to an idealic spot of Ireland. The staff are wonderful, the food is great and the scenery is beautiful. Great for mid week breaks. Thanks, Ellen

We had a fantastic time at the Hotel. On arrival I ordered a vegetarian meal in the bar..this was super. However the evening meal that we had as part of our package had a very limited selection for vegetarians and the chef had to prepare me a risotto specially....I was delighted. We have recommended the hotel to friends and family and we look forward to staying with you again. P.s the room was immaculate thanks to the house keeping!!!! Pippa.

One of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. Beautiful area - peaceful and tranquil except for the Friday night when an evening of somewhat mournful Irish music was followed by a disco that went on the 1/4 to 3 in the morning and was followed by lots of noise on the main street. Be advised if you are a solo traveller you are put in a room at the front of the hotel that fronts on to the main street! However if you are looking for a relaxing stay and leave before the Friday night I would highly recommend this hotel
