    The Roast of the day was just so good, like a meal your mum used to make. Anywhere the Reception is in the Bar of an Irish Pub just has to be good.

    Fix the light bulbs in Unit 30, couple not working.

    The menu was limited and the food was not great. This is an area where the team here could up their game. Lumpy mash potatoe in an Irish themed hotel!!

    A visit to Donegal House is like being teleported to rural Ireland. The hosts are welcoming and friendly, the restaurant has outstanding food, the grounds are beautiful and the horses over the fence complete the country experience.

    They were a litlle understaffed the night we stayed, however the owner acknowledged this.
