    A nice, flat riverside park up right in the centre of Donegal. Loads of space, although some motorhomes were unnecessarily taking up three spaces when we were there and it was very busy with motorhomes. Parking cost is 30 cents an hour up until 1830 and then free on Sundays. Recommend to visit Donegal.

  • 5/5

    What a great spot, quiet and flat with good view. Great price for parking. Very central so will stay another night.

  • 4/5

    Right on the quay, no issues parking overnight free between 6pm and 9am but be aware the parking attendant was pretty prompt at 9am the morning we were there in January. Tourist info were very helpful for our ongoing journey, no toilet or water here as stated previously. nearest toilet is in the SuperValue mall 50 metres up the hill on the left. plenty of pubs and restaurants within a short walk

  • 4/5

    Perfect for a night out in Donegal but the boy racers drive up and down the carpark until about 2am on a Saturday and there’s no toilets

  • 4/5

    Muy buen sitio plano y con muchas plazas pero de pago. De 18 a 9h es gratis.

  • 4/5

    No toilets available in tourist office in carpark..public toilets at other side of town but dirty and dated ...otherwise a nice parkup in a lovely town ..

  • 5/5

    Great spot close to town centre. Better signage for toilets would be welcome, there doesn’t appear to be any. Mid October and I’m the only camper on the site.

  • 4/5

    It is what it says. A carpark along the Quay side a short walk from the town centre. No services other than daytime toilets about 200m away. €3 for 24 hours is good by any standard and judging by the number of vans here in October a small Shower and service block (look at Mallaig in Scotland) would go down a treat.

  • 5/5

    Beau et grand parking pour visiter la ville et passer une nuit. Emplacements plats. Un peu bruyant car beaucoup de circulation.

  • 5/5

    Really nice, cheap parking spot. Short walk into town where there are plenty of bars and restaurants, you'll be able to find a Trad night on somewhere near the Diamond any night of the week. I'd also highly recommend the boat tour of Donegal Bay.

  • 5/5

    Beautiful overnight parking area. Some large Motorhomes take up to three parking spots which offends other campervans. Very close to Donegal town where there are many restaurants , pubs and great shopping. Also beautiful river walk.

  • 5/5

    Bon spot pour rester la nuit dans le centre ville. Pas trop de bruit et beaucoup de places. gratuit la nuit et sinon de 9h à 18h c'est 30 cts l'heure.

  • 5/5

    Great spot, wifi is good too, large space, pay for parking from 9am but relatively cheap.

  • 3/5

    le site n'a guère de charme et pas mal de passage. le bonus qu'est la soirée au reel inn avec danses irlandaises vaut par contre la peine !

  • 5/5

    Great place to stop over. Car Park is free from 6pm - 9am and very cheap outside of these hours. Plenty of other campers about. Very quiet night & great location for various pubs/shops/cafes etc of Donegal Town

  • 5/5

    Un spot sympa au bord de la rivière. Toilettes aux endroits indiqués. Une ville idéale pour écouter de la musique traditionnelle le soir accompagnée de danse. Privilégier le « Reel Inn » un peu en retrait mais plus authentique. Nous y avons passé une super soirée.

  • 5/5

    Car park right in the lovely town, €3 for 24hours lots of motorhomes overnighting free WiFi (Donegal council) very busy during the day as its an extremely popular tourist town, bins provided, toilets in the town (near Aldi) a few boy racers in the evening but caused no problem as the Garda charge their electric cars in the car park

  • 5/5

    What a great spot. Head down the bottom end towards the abbey ruins as there is less traffic except for coaches. Pay online. Car park 4, for hours between 9.00am-6.00pm. Overnight is free. And for great irish music and dancers head to the reel inn. A not to be missed place. Fabulous night from 8.30-10pm.

  • 5/5

    Great spot some boy racers going up and down for a while 8 vans here all quite after 23:00

  • 5/5

    Nous avons payé 2,50€ de 11h le matin jusqu’à 10h le lendemain. Très calme la nuit et à deux pas du centre où nous avons pu acheter des souvenirs, bu dans un très beau pub et manger dans un excellent restaurant. Merci à la commune de Donegal. Il y a des poubelles sur le parking.

  • 5/5

    Great location next to the river and the town centre. Free WiFi. Some boy racers at night, but they weren't too bad

  • 5/5

    Great location right in town. Plenty of bins. Free parking on Sundays and free Internet. A lot of motor homes parked during the day but only 3 stayed overnight. The car park is overlooked by the police station, so although a few “meet ups” early evening, it was quiet from around 11pm and no issues. Would recommend.

  • 5/5

    Segon viatge a Irlanda, segona estada a Donegal. Un emplaçament ideal.

  • 5/5

    Enfin une ville qui autorise le stationnement des campings cars aux portes de la ville. Un tarif dérisoire ! Nous avons pu faire les boutiques, visiter le château... même la nuit, il est possible de dormir. Nous avons demandé confirmation à un gendarme. Sa réponse a été : avec grand plaisir ! Lorsque toutes les villes comprendront que nous faisons vivre le commerce...

  • 5/5

    Lovely place to stay overnight. Very picturesque down at the river. Right in the center of town so walking distance to bars and restaurants. Another 6 motorhomes so felt very safe. Few kids in cars going about but stopped about 11 so very quiet. No toilets but went to fureys for breakfast which was amazing food and used their toilet!

  • 5/5

    Great, cheap parking spot right in the heart of Donegal town next to the river. No facilities but felt safe and was very quiet - no spinners to be seen! Wifi possible if working from the van and nearest toilets in the SuperValu up the hill. Great lunch there too! Excellent spot.

  • 1/5

    Dommage, le parking est top et pas cher... Mais des jeunes font des allers retours jusqu'au bout du parking, souvent à vive allure devant le van et sans arret : à 23h nous plions bagages... Si vous rencontrez le même problème, ne comptez pas vous réfugier sur un autre parking (celui à 4min ou celui du lidl) ils font pareil !!

  • 5/5

    Had a nice sleep and a quiet night

  • 5/5

    Great spot for a night in Donegal. Pubs in area are good craic! Cheap as chips 30cents parking an hour. Free from 6pm -9am. Safe, spacious and flat, lots of other vans and motorhomes staying the night.

  • 4/5

    stayed 26/04 ideal for a night or 2 there was 9 other motorhomes parked up no problems, no Facilities quite enough to have a sleep ideal for the Town drains for Grey water the space for Motorhomes is at the bottom end of the carpark, park up against the wall

  • 4/5

    Some noise during the night but ok enough to sleep. Area well lit and clean.

  • 5/5

    Very good location, flat, cafe right next door and lovely view. You can pay for parking online too

  • 5/5

    we stayed here on Saturday night. quite a busy car park but plenty of spaces. it is free to park on Sundays so if you arrive after 6pm on Saturday it is free and no panic to leave on Sunday. the town centre is a minutes walk with plenty of pubs and restaurants. there was music in most of the pubs.the car park was very quiet at night and another 5 campervan parked up. would recommend 100%

  • 4/5

    Se garer au fond du parking. Endroit calme malgré quelques voitures passantes. Un peu de vent en cette période de l'année. Toilettes à côté du Aldi fermées mais il y en a au Supervalue.

  • 4/5

    Parking tranquille au bord de la rivière. Gratuit de 18h à 9h. Proche du centre.

  • 5/5

    If you park next to the information centre you can use their Wi-Fi

  • 4/5

    Superbe vue, sécurisant, un autre camping car était à côté ! Quelques personnes dans leurs voitures mais très calme, on s’est mis au milieu pour ne pas être sur le parking devant avec les voitures et la lumière ; on est partis avant 9h, gratuit ! Toilettes fermes, vue sur les bateaux !

  • 3/5

    I made the mistake of parking at the lower end, where the many local young drivers chose to turn, and sometimes stop. However, they mostly were quiet and respectful, and dispersed by midnight. Area felt safe. Approx 8 motor homes overnight. You need to pay from 9am, very cheap. Toilets at Tourist Information Office closed due to Covid but helpful staff in a lovely building. 5 minute walk into the centre of town, lots of eateries & pubs, friendly

  • 5/5

    Lovely place right in town and on the quayside. We stayed three nights and had no trouble with boy racers at all. Can pay online and at less than 3 euros a day it's a bargain. There are public toilets a short walk away in car park 1 - walk up past the Garda station and to the far end of the car park - opening hours are erratic though. Toilets in visitor centre were closed when we were there.

  • 3/5

    Ticketed for overhanging the pavement with the bike rack - our fault but be careful!

  • 4/5

    Great park close to town , busy with the boat tour ad boy racers in the evening , got quiet about 11 o clock , lots of campervan €3 all day parking

  • 4/5

    Spent one night here, loads of spaces and lovely view on the bay. Few campers and cars parked as well. No public toilets available but the parking is free after 6pm until 9am. All shops and restaurants very close by.

  • 3/5

    A convenient spot in the town but the comments are true, people driving past every 2 minutes. strangely the same cars all the time and some weave in and out of the motorhomes parked up. had no issues with them though

  • 4/5

    Great spot, very large car park by the river, loads of parking, about 10 campers here last night. 2 minute walk to shops, bars and restaurants.

  • 5/5

    Stayed here for one night. Great location. Right in the middle of town, 2 minute walk to restaurants/pub and the shops. Felt very safe and was quiet the night we were there.

  • 5/5

    Perfect spot for overnight in the town, walking distance to all pubs and restaurants. Quiet no issues toilets in tourist office open at 9am with hot water

  • 2/5

    Nice spot on the river. Close to town. Just beware Donegal town is a haven for boy racers they come and go all night .Loud music and engines

  • 3/5

    Lovely spot right by the river and close to the town, but we stayed on a Friday evening and all the boy racers meet up in the car park at night and seem to make a game out of annoying anyone in campers! Alot of noise until 1:30am due to this!

  • 5/5

    Perfecte per pernoctar i per visitar la vila.

  • 4/5

    Mitten im Ort und Nachts doch ruhig. Super für Pubbesuche mit toller Musik. Das Ambiente ist nicht toll, da es der Grossparkplatz von Donegal ist. Aber mit Blick auf den Fluss ertragbar.

  • 4/5

    Stellplatz ist ein normaler Autoparkplatz. Kostenlos zwischen 18:00 Uhr und 9:00 Uhr. Dann 30ct. die Stunde. 5 Minuten Fußweg in die Stadt. Sehr ruhige Nacht verbracht. Außer Abfalleimer keine Ausstattung

  • 5/5

    Nous avons passé une nuit très calme, places au fond du parking mieux pour les camping-cars, à proximité des commerces, ville très sympathique

  • 3/5

    Ok, der Parkplatz ist kostenlos, aber das war wirklich die lauteste Nacht, die ich jemals im Wohnmobil verbracht habe: Bis 3 Uhr fuhren Halbstarke bis zum Ende des Parkplatzes, um dort mit quietschenden Reifen zu drehen und mit unter Vollgas jaulendem Motor wieder zurückzufahren. Sehr unangenehm!

  • 4/5

    Bien pour une nuit, mais du passage sur le fond du parking

  • 3/5

    Pasamos una noche tranquila, había bastantes autocaravanas, a partir de las 09 es de pago. Ideal para visitar el pueblo.

  • 4/5

    Good stop in an interesting if not touristy town. Only nearby toilet is in the Tourist Office near the entry to car-park. The Texaco station on the way north out of Donegal has a truck driver toilet as the rear (handy for the cassette) and water.

  • 4/5

    Good place to park for the night, close to pubs and restaurant's. Rubbish bins as well, quiet at night, very busy during the day. 2.70 euro's all day, 9am to 6pm. Park in one bay or you will get a ticket. Doesn't matter if you stick out a bit.

  • 4/5

    Impeccable. Pub sympa à proximité.

  • 3/5

    Nous y avons passé une nuit (samedi soir) et, vu les commentaires précédents, nous nous sommes garés à l'entrée du parking près de l'hôtel, sans lever le toit. Du coup, pas de bruit de cars, de jeunes ou autres, à part quelques véhicules qui partent après la fermeture des pubs mais comme on y était aussi, ça ne nous a pas gêné.

  • 4/5

    Nice town carpark in easy walking distance of the centre.

  • 2/5

    Aparcament gratuit de 18.00 a 09.00 hores. A la nit bastant soroll de gent i vehicles.

  • 4/5

    Nuit tranquille. 2,70 € la journée ou 0,30€ de l'heure. Pas de service, proche de la ville et des pubs avec live music.

  • 4/5

    Avons passé la nuit du 7 juin 2018. Simple parking plat en bord de mer sans service. Payant jusqu'à 19h (0,6 €/h). Les places du fond vers sont les plus calmes. Centre à moins de 500 m.

  • 4/5

    Stayed on a Saturday night in April, and was very good. A little noise early on in the evening but quiet through the night. Situated between the River and town centre so ideal location. A beautiful area with wonderful beaches.

  • 5/5

    Très bien situé et calme la nuit où j'y étais.

  • 2/5

    Le fond du parking sert de rassemblement aux jeunes en voiture, pas méchant, mais bruyant !

  • 4/5

    De la place en hiver. Un peu de bruit car du passage mais un couchage à côté du centre est bien pratique.

  • 2/5

    Parking bien situé car à coté du centre ville mais trop bruyant, des jeunes ont fait des courses de voitures jusque 2h du matin, ensuite c'est le camion de nettoyage à 6h, nuit pas terrible.

  • 3/5

    Bruyant en soirée, des jeunes se rassemblent et font des courses de voitures. Bonne nuit malgré tout. Sinon, endroit sympa.

  • 1/5

    Parking hyper bruyant dimanche soir Run de voiture jusqu'à 3h du matin, 6h camion balayeuse pendant 30 mn a tourner autour des camping-cars, de 7h à 8h bus qui font chauffer leurs moteurs enfin une nuit déplorable à éviter si vous aimez le calme

  • 4/5

    Gratuit la nuit, en plein centre face au port. Plutôt calme malgré une certaine affluence (pas mal de camping-cars
