The nearest airport to Donegal town is Donegal Airport, which is on the northern coast of the county, 43 miles away, so you will need to travel from the airport to get to your hotel. We recommend that you contact your hotel in advance if you think that you may arrive outside of their regular check-in times or stay in a hotel with 24h check-in services, such as An Chúirt, Gweedore Court Hotel.
Public transport in Donegal is infrequent and the county is generally not very well connected, so if you are planning on going to Donegal without renting a car, we recommend that you stay in a hotel near Donegal Town Centre, such as The Central Hotel Donegal, as it is the best-connected part of the county.
For travellers looking to stay at a hotel near the coast, there are several hotels that offer coastal views on the Wild Atlantic Way, one of Ireland's most famous tourist trails, such as The Gaslight Inn, or Foyagh House, both of which are close to Rossnowlagh Beach.
If you would prefer not to use public transport to get to your hotel, Farmleigh Guesthouse and Donegal Lodgings offer airport shuttle transport to Donegal Airport, and Donegal Lodgings also offers a car rental service on site.
If you want to travel with your most faithful companion, Windmill Cottage and Ard na Breatha Guesthouse are both pet-friendly hotels in Donegal. We advise you to contact them in advance as there may be a pet-stay fee.
