The door keys are actual keys, with a beautifully embossed leather key fob. Our room faced Main Street & we could open our window &...

My wife and I were part of a group booking last weekend. Our first impressions of the Hotel were very positive. The owners were there personally to greet us and very efficiently got us to our allocated rooms. Reception was near the door but the large lounge was very welcoming with many comfortable chairs and a large fire in the...

On an overnight trip to Ballyshannon I had the great good fortune of staying at Dorrians. I haven't been to County Donegal before but have stayed in many Irish hotels over the years, ranging from chic Dublin properties, to charming historic properties like Bantry House. Dorrians was right up there in terms of a friendly greeting, service, facilities, and a...
