Thank you for your review. The steak on the stone is one of our specialties, we are delighted you enjoyed it!

5 out of 5
Donegal might be the best hidden gem in Ireland. The town itself is adorable. The people are absolutely charming. And the Abbey Hotel is right in the middle of it all. Lovely lobby and comfortable rooms. Went there in the off-season so parking wasn't an issue (though a large lot is very close). While in town, visit the Reel Inn for some great live music. Don't miss Donegal Castle - it's only a 5 minute walk (if that) and the self-guided tour is quick, in case time is a consideration. Possibly my favorite spot in what was a magical vacation to Ireland.
