"Central"
The staff went above and beyond to help us out with a broken cash card. So friendly. Loved the 2 nights we spent there. Really central, yet quiet and spotlessly clean

"Beautiful location and hotel, room like a sauna!"
We had a one night stay at the hotel. Everything was as you would expect for a hotel of this standard and the location is wonderful close to the lake with forest and lake walks. We were in a courtyard room and there was torrential rain during our stay which meant we got wet during our trips to and from the main hotel, also puddles had formed on pathway which resulted in our feet getting wet as well. The major issue with our stay was with the underfloor heating in the room which appeared to be stuck on maximum. We had to open doors and windows to get relief from the heat - it must have been at least 35 degrees, very uncomfortable! We know from other friends staying in these rooms that the heat was oppressive in their rooms as well.

"Great Aussie flavour"
A comfortable B&B, with great views of the estuary. Claire and John have spent some time in Australia and that made our stay a bit better as we discussed their experiences. Also tis is the first B&B where we were welcomed into the sitting room when the family were in occupation, which made it a very friendly and intimate visit. Our room on the ground floor (I couldn't face the stairs , was very comfortable and we had control of the heating, which for us was great. Breakfast was sumptuous and almost more than I could get down. Claire was happy to do a bit more than you might expect in providing explicit requests.

" traditional country house. full of memorabilia"
The hotel was very quiet on arrival with a very friendly welcome. We were shown to a large room in the outside building. As it turned out, we were the only residents. The room was warm and cosy and very clean. We spent some time in the bar and had a fantastic meal.The menu was varied with plenty of choice. Several diners from the village dined. Comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast rounded off a pleasant stay.

"Wish I found it sooner"
I stayed here only one night in the cabin / apartment next to the main building, but wish I had found it earlier so I could stay an extra night or two as it's a great location to serve as a base in western Donegal - less than an hour from Slieve League It was wonderful. The cabin had a futon downstairs along with a mini-kitchen and full bath. The loft upstairs had a bed fit under the "A" frame roof. The bed was very comfortable - best sleep of my trip. Upon arrival, the owner greeted me and offered a beverage. After showing me around, he suggested I go to a pub down the road for some traditional Irish music. It was a great introduction to the area, and exactly what I wanted. The next morning, the breakfast was great - full irish, or whatever else I wanted along with smoked salmon, cheese, meats, and of course, some great coffee and chat. If you're in the area and looking for a good place to stay - look no further, this is it.

    Pocket Guide: Donegal Abbey Assaroe Hotels

    Although County Donegal is best known for its fabulous coast and beautiful beaches, the region has much more to offer. Whether it’s political, maritime or ecclesiastical, it is a part of Ireland steeped in rich history and, thanks to the excellent range of accommodation on offer, it’s easy to find somewhere to stay while you make the most of it.

    Abbey Assaroe is one of Donegal’s most captivating historic attractions and is located in a beautiful spot close to Ballyshannon and Bundoran, two towns offering very different holiday experiences. Both, however, have plenty of choice when it comes to affordable, comfortable hotels, guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, holiday homes and hostels.

    Hotels on the Doorstep of History

    Standing alongside the River Erne, Abbey Assaroe is a delightful place to spend a couple of hours. It was built in 1184 by Cistercian monks who had moved into the area from Boyle in County Roscommon. The monks moved quickly to harness the power of the river by creating a watermill, which has been expertly restored. The story of the restoration project is chronicled in an interpretative centre, which also sheds light on the progressive monks who lived at Assaroe.

    Two artificial caves also form an integral part of the site. One, known as the Catsby, served as a secret chapel during the Penal times that saw the persecution of Ireland’s Roman Catholics. The other, now about 90 feet deep, once extended for two miles towards Rossnowlagh.

    The monastery was damaged by fire in 1377 and was attacked on numerous occasions over the next 20 years, ending with it being plundered by the King of Tyrone in 1398. The abbey estates were eventually granted to English lords but the monks continued to live on-site until they were eventually driven out after the Flight of the Earls in 1607.

    The abbey then fell into decline and, today, all that remains is the west end of the church, part of the west gable and a section of the south wall. A graveyard was added which, along with an adjoining farm, formed part of the grounds and the last abbot of Assaroe, Abbot Quinn, is buried there.

    Hotels Close to Abbey Assaroe

    Bundoran is the busiest seaside resort in the county and is home to a world-famous surfing beach and, in the summer, lots of people. There are plenty of hotels close to the seafront, which is home to a colourful mix of amusement arcades, fairground rides and takeaways as well a water park and adventure centre. As well as surfers, it’s also popular with golfers attracted by one of the best courses in Donegal.

    Tucked away on an incline above the River Erne, picturesque Ballyshannon is a much more tranquil proposition than its louder, family-oriented neighbour. Reportedly the oldest town in the country, with its roots dating back to Neolithic times, it is popular with visitors who want to enjoy a peaceful retreat after a hard day’s sightseeing.
