Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

25 of us, all ages, had a wonderful evening here for dinner for a family birthday. 10 of us stayed overnight. All the staff are very helpful and attentive at every step from making enquiries to breakfast the next day! We will all go back again. Everyone was raving about the great food. I had the tomahawk steak and by lord it was unreal! We have found a hidden gem!

We came across this real find by chance, along a drive. Arrived around 12 fir lunch but were informed the kitchen wasn't open until 13:00. Staff could not have been more accommodating and were able to offer soup and bread which was lovely. Excellent views across the bay and excellent service.

The most relaxing hotel with beautiful views. Delicious food and friendly staff. Room was clean warm and very comfortable. Not serviced daily due to covid restrictions but clean towels etc were provided daily. Breakfast was table service with fruit, juice, scones and cereal provided alongside hot menu. From Megan on reception to Keith himself the staff were all very friendly. This was not our first visit and definitely won’t be our last

Very disappointed with our visit to Creevy Pier Hotel and restaurant. Whilst the menu may look impressive, the food was overcooked, overpriced and underseasoned. The service we recieved was average at best and did not reflect the high cost of the meal. The male toilets were in a disgusting state and hand sanitiser stations were empty. I would not recommend visiting.

We went as a family group of 7 people. We were surprised that the food came in a cardboard box. The pizza was undercooked, only one of our party was satisfied with their main course (steak and prawns). The other mains were not good - there were 4 prawns in my main, the fish platter was tasteless, the duo of fish was very small. Because of the food being in a cardboard box, all salad garnishes had wilted. The whole experience was disappointing. We had eaten in Bundoran the previous evening and had a great experience, for around the same price, with real plates! We decided to give feedback to the manager, who was very defensive and not interested - he interrupted me 4 times while I was speaking to him. I would not recommend Creevy Pier to anyone and will never go back. This is a pity because the location is stunning and they could do so much better

Came down to the hotel to get dinner. We hadn't booked and they couldn't fit us in. No problem, totally understand that. We decided to stay for a few drinks and enjoy the stunning view at the front of the hotel. Staff were very friendly, drinks were lovely. BUT we spent around €80 on drinks over the evening and were not allowed to use the hotel toilets due to covid. We had to use the outdoor loos provided for swimmers etc. Paying by card we were told we could not create a tab but the WiFi didn't work outside so they were very particular about the procedure: order drinks, wait for them to arrive, then go inside to use the card machine. At which point several staff members seemed obliged to stop us and explain non guests were not allowed inside. At this point we realised all the food was coming out in take away boxes (I wouldn't have been impressed if I had a booking). Queried with the waitress why the drinks tables couldn't order something if it was all take away but she just responded 'sorry fully booked'. Found it a bit confusing that the hotel was in no way willing to go out of their way for paying customers, especially after the difficult 18 months the hospitality industry has gone through.

Thank goodness for Keith and all staff at the Creevy Pier. In late September 2020, 5 days before our already postponed wedding, two venues cancelled on us due to our small numbers. COVID restrictions at the time only allowed for 25 guests, which was not financially feasible for larger venues. We contacted Keith in a panic, who immediately responded (after thoroughly checking out all covid safety guidelines for weddings) to let us know he could accommodate us. We had our ceremony and reception in the hotel looking right over Donegal Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. All the staff were so accommodating in the days before and the day of the wedding, with particular mention to manager Megan and Hotel owner Keith. The beautiful ocean themed interior of the hotel fit perfectly with what we had in mind for our wedding theme. The food was superb, perfect quality and quantity. The atmosphere was cosy, warm and relaxed, which is what we always wanted for our wedding day. I can’t recommend the Creevy Pier enough for a a small intimate wedding. Thanks for saving the day!

We stayed over night and had a lovely meal in the restaurant. The food was excellent. The staff were very friendly and attentive but not intrusive. You need to book a table to not be disappointed as it is busy. The room's are compact but comfortable. Sea viev worth the extra. We will be back.
