Fodor's Expert Review Clanree Hotel

Derry Rd., Letterkenny, Co. Donegal, Ireland

Formerly a Holiday Inn, this hotel has reinvented itself with flair, and the spacious entrance hall—with framed tweed pieces hung on walls, reflecting the area's connection to the industry—strikes a distinctive and welcoming note. Guest bedrooms in red and cream were redecorated during 2018 and are well-appointed with unfussy fabrics. Dinner in the Aileach restaurant is served in attractive surroundings and the plush McGettigan's Irish Bar offers a lunch menu (noon–10) of comfort food such as seafood chowder, bangers and mash, or Irish stew, and dinner options (6–9) where steaks are the most popular dish. The hotel's strengths are its conference and leisure facilities that include a pool, gym, Jacuzzi, sauna, and beauty salon, great for weary bones after hiking through the highlands of Donegal.
