From the minute we arrived the girl at reception was so informative about what all was taking place at the Santa evening and the next day. The room was lovely & warm when we went into it.... More

Buncrana Chamber of Commerce have recently held our annual awards event at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel. The service was second to none, the food was perfect, the room was beautifully finished, and the staff pulled out all the stops to ensure every guest had a fantastic evening. Highly recommended for any events you may be planning.
