We dine here at least once a year when over on holidays visiting friends in our holiday home - never had a bad meal yet! Lovely cosy reception area, friendly welcome, and beautiful food, and always piping hot and never rushed!

The facility has a warm, country feel with the sheep bleating in this active farm - but it's a two minute drive from the center of Donegal Town.
