We picked this hotel for no particular reason and were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. Everything was clean and tidy,the room was spotless and although there was a wedding in the hotel and the staff were very busy they were very accommodating. Truly a nice stop. Thank you Jim&Shawna McGonigal

We have just returned from a 5 night stay and found the hotel very clean and the service excellent. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was always freshly cooked and a good selection of cereals and fruit was also available. Good soda bread as well. The location is good for sightseeing...

I stayed in Dorians recently for a night and it was a mixed experience. The hotel has a large enough car park with direct access to reception. The receptionist (owner) was very welcoming, helpful and full of chat. The reception area is huge with loads of comfie chairs and an open fire. I went to my room which was on...

My boyfriend & I stayed here for 2 nights (Friday & Saturday) in August as it's location is near to Tullan strand & Rossnowlagh beach which were on our itinerary. The outside of the hotel looks welcoming with flowers in the window ledges & old-style lights. There is adequate off road parking at no cost. However, we were put off...

My family and I recently stayed in Dorrian's for 5 days and were really impressed with the size of the room which was large enough for two cots, a double bed and single bed and still had enough space for the kids to run around. The rooms and bathrooms were cleaned well every day. The room was not the most...

The room was large, but the bathroom tiny. The electrical outlets were oddly placed...for example the room had an electric kettle, but the only outlet by the service was in the closet. Light switches were just weird, the fan would run in the bathroom (noisily) if the power switch to the outlet by the bathroom sink was used to charge...

We had 2 rooms in July 2015. They're spacious and clean. The hotel staff are friendly and were helpful in recommending things to do in the local area. It's a traditional hotel, with quaint (but clean and tidy!) decor. Breakfast was good and it has free wifi service. There is car parking available behind the hotel. It's a great location...
