We stayed as a group of 6 for 5 nights and I couldn't falt the hotel the food and the friendlyness of the staff, every thing was excellent from the wide range of local seafood,meats and poultry. I would recommend the Tara as a place for a good stay as nothing was a problem at all. Michael

I have stayed in the Tara Hotel on a number of occasions. It is my destination of choice when in the Killybegs area. Very comfortable rooms with trouser press and iron in every room. Great sea views and easy parking.

Highly recommended if you are travelling to west Donegal. Located within two minute walk of town centre and next to the harbour. The restaurant has great food (only gluten free establishment in town). Nice rooms with a great view. Price is unbeatable, especially if you don't go during peak tourist season.

We visited this hotel for food on our trip to Donegal. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was very tasty and great value for money. View of the boats and harbour while having dinner was a bonus. We enjoyed it so much we returned the next morning for breakfast,even though we weren't guests of the hotel very friendly staff...

“Ask for a room with harbour view. But be aware that the massive fishing vessels keep their engines running 24/7 and so there is a constant din in town. ”
