Solo Travel to Donegal
I went to Donegal alone and going alone can be scary for many people. But I feel the Gateway Lodge was perfect for me. It’s beside the City Centre. Staff where friendly. Check in and out was simple. Plenty of parking and the food was amazing. If I was to go again, I won’t hesitate to choose the Gateway Lodge again. 10/10 would recommend.
