A wonderfull hotel,with very friendly and helpful staff. We ate in bar both nights,the second night with friends there was a great buzz,great menu backed up with freshly prepared, well presented, and great tasting food, don't miss out on the sweets again made on site. Just don't be in a rush after your meal sit back and watch the fishing...

Great location! Good base for exploring the countryside around it. Breakfast was delicious!!! We had a room with a wonderful view of the harbour but it could have done with a bit of renovation, it had seen better days...

Nice place, kind and pretty staff, good atmosphere, good food. And even a usefull gym to work away the guilty feeling of that extra pint of Guiness. The bar has that "housy" feeling that I really enjoy after a hard day of work!

Just spent 2 nights in the Tara hotel. Rooms 201 and 205, great harbour views and it helped that the sun shone for the 2 days. David, a very friendly guy checked us in and made us feel very welcome. He told us he is leaving to go North for a new job so we wish him the very best...

A lovely hotel on the harbor. We had our choice of a harbor room or town view and we loved seeing the boats from our room. A quick walk to several cute restaurants and food shops. Rooms were clean and spacious - very pleased.

We had a lovely few days staying at the Tara hotel in Killybegs. The staff are very welcoming and always helpful. The food was good and the bar had a lovely atmosphere. We would definitely return in the future.
