McKeever Hotel Group Invests €1.8m In Dillons Hotel In Donegal

Dillons Hotel in Letterkenny has announced the completion of an extensive refurbishment and brand refresh, after a €1.8 million investment by its parent company, the McKeever Hotel Group.

The investment is part of McKeever’s three-year growth strategy.

‘Local Feel’

“Not only are we a town centre hotel, but we also act as a gateway to all that Donegal has to offer. This means we are a prime location for tourists and overseas visitors, yet we also maintain our community focus and local feel,” said Robert McElhinney, general manager at Dillons Hotel.

“Our new look and upgraded accommodation offering further enhances the customer experience, and we look forward to extending the traditional Dillons welcome to guests, old and new.”

Refurbished And Modernised

The 90-bedroom hotel now offers a range of suites, including one that is fully accessible, as well as a number of two-bedroom deluxe family rooms.


All the remaining bedrooms have also been refurbished and modernised.

TV Personality And Artist

Other hotel amenities have also been upgraded as part of the refurbishment programme, including the fit-out of a brand-new on-site gym.

The new suites were given the seal of approval by TV personality and artist Timmy Mallett, who stayed in Dillons during his recent cycle tour of the Donegal and Northern Irish coastlines.

Mallett congratulated the hotel for its art, which is the work of company director Catherine McKeever.

‘We Do More’

“We’ve found our customers and their needs have changed significantly over the last five years, and our goal was to expand our accommodation offering, providing guests with a full range of options, which are of the highest standard, but also affordable,” said Eddie McKeever, managing director of the McKeever Hotel Group.

“In line with our ‘we do more’ culture and commitment to continuous investment, we’re delighted to see this transformation come to fruition ahead of the busy summer season.”
