I booked a family room and was given a single room with two double beds. Gal at front desk insisted that I booked two rooms and only paid for one. She kept asking if I wanted two rooms and I said no, the family room please. She was not clear and not helpful in clarifying…

I stayed here years ago. The pictures online are not the current rooms. I booked 3 rooms and it was very hot. We were placed on 3 different floors with no way to supervise the kids. We asked the front staff for fans and they said they were all given out. Not one of the 9 people in my party slept one minute. 6 kids and 3 adults so you can imagine how awful this was. We were charged $15 Euro a person for breakfast. They knew we had 6 kids and didn’t factor that lower charge in. I didn’t realize the problem until I looked the hotel up for the review. Aside from one towel a room, body wash for hand soap, toilets that didn’t flush and the staggering heat they should probably invest in the people and rooms before all the country singing acts they bring in. Don’t pretend that is a tv in the room. That was funny Abbey Hotel. Shame on you guys for what you have done to that hotel. It used to be charming.

Donegal was a beautiful little town. We enjoyed the castle and abbey ruins, which were both walking distance from the Abbey Hotel.

The service and product was weak and looked like the inmates were running the asylum. I was checked in and I had to lug my baggage through stairs as the desk clerk did not address the elevator issue as the one in the back served my room. The restaurant was a disaster 4 serves like in a musical chair none took the order. The food was good but the presentation was awful.
