Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in Donegal

Famous the world over for its amazing coastal landscape, County Donegal is a hugely popular tourist destination and, with a wide range of visitors to cater for, there is a diverse mix of high quality, affordable accommodation to choose from. There’s no need to worry about your budget, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect place to stay.

Donegal Town is one of the best places to set up base for exploring the area, offering lots of options when it comes to two hotels suited to travellers working to a budget. There is also an impressive number of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts in the area, offering clean, comfortable accommodation and the warm Irish welcome Donegal is renowned for. There are also hostels in the area, and these are popular with backpackers and young travellers exploring the county.

Hotels Around The Diamond

One of the main advantages of staying in Donegal Town is that you’ll find virtually everything you need around an open, pedestrianised area known as The Diamond.

It’s where you’ll find most of the town’s hotels, pubs, restaurants, coffee houses and shops and, when you’ve finished sightseeing for the day, you’ll have no difficulty finding somewhere to enjoy a drink or two and a bite to eat. As far as entertainment is concerned, traditional Irish music can be enjoyed at many of the town’s pubs most nights during the busy summer months.

Hotels and History

Perfectly located in a spot where the River Eske meets Donegal Bay and with the Bluestack Mountains providing a stunning backdrop, Donegal Town has a rich history.

The important part it has played in Ireland’s past is revealed at the Old Graveyard. This is the intriguing name given to the ruins of a former friary located at the end of the town’s quay. It was here that one of the most important sources of early Irish history, the Annals of the Four Masters, was put together by four friars. In 1937 an obelisk was installed in The Diamond in 1937 to honour their historic work, copies of which are on display in the National Library in Dublin.

The town itself was once home to the O’Donnells, powerful chieftains who ruled the north-west of Ireland from the 15th to 17th centuries. They were responsible for the creation of well-preserved Donegal Castle, a fabulously atmospheric fortress adorned by rugs from Persia and tapestries from France. The castle was originally constructed in 1474 before being destroyed by fire. It was rebuilt in 1623, along with a neighbouring three-storey Jacobean house, and extensive restoration work in the 1990s helped turn it into a must-see attraction for anyone visiting the county.

Hotels to Suit All Budgets

County Donegal is one of the most popular parts of Ireland and you’ll have no problem enjoying it whatever your budget. There are lots of affordable two star hotels, bed and breakfasts, guesthouses and hostels to choose from so make sure you check out all the different types of accommodation on offer in the area.
