You can say I do in our elegant 1920’s themed Pyramid Suite, opt for a more modern setting of the Staircase lobby or go Al fresco with an outdoor ceremony overlooking the gorgeous River Finn.

We will always remember the special memories, craic we had in the hotel on our wedding day with our guests and even the hotel staff.

We can't wait to revisit the hotel when the restrictions lift.

We highly recommend Jackson's Hotel to all couples looking for that perfect venue for their wedding day.

Have a look at the surroundings and that beautiful staircase, which sold it for us, before we even got to the dining room. Then it was a bigger wow!

restrictions put in place, but not once did we and our quests feel restricted - we felt safe and had a wonderful day and night. The staff are outstanding and went beyond our expectations. The food was so delicious and there was plenty of it. The chef really did an amazing job catering for all our dietary requirements.

We'd like to thank all those who worked with us and made our day really enjoyable, memorable and special. If we have left anyone out, I'm sorry. Our thanks to all. But Carina, you are amazing and put everything in to your job. We felt as if you were a forever friend to us and nothing was a bother.

PS: The accommodation was fab and we hope to come join you again. Anyone considering getting married and looking for a special place, Jackson's Hotel Ballybofey Donegal is the place x

We could not have hoped for a better service than what we got in Jackson's Hotel. We were treated with exceptional compassion, sensitivity, professionalism and kindness through serious disruption to our plans due to covid-19. Jackson's staff went above and beyond to accommodate us with necessary

We felt confident about the wedding day running smoothly due to the standard of service we had received in advance, and they did not disappoint. Their attention to detail and personal touches made our wedding day run perfectly, allowing us to enjoy every minute. The guests are still talking about the beautiful food now and have planned a family reunion there again at Christmas!
