The pub is cosy and clean. Service is effective, if a bit brusque. Lunch portions are huge. The menu will suit most- not great for vegetarians but I got a salad. We booked a table for 14. Strangely enough there was a table in the middle of our reserved area that we were told to leave empty for other customers... More

I'd never been to this place before, but we were going to meet up with friends for a quick meal and they suggested it. Am glad they did! I had the burger with chips and salad, as did my other half, one of the party had the fish and chips, and the fourth person had the chicken curry. The chips... More

Very poor gluten free options for kids, (Irish stew was the only option available). Requested if we could get a plain breast of chicken was informed not available, no effort made to accommodate this request or suggest another option. The menu looked good pity we didn't wait to sample, travelled a few miles down the road where there was a... More

Always have a tasty, hearty meal at Donnachas. Staff are lovely and absolutely accomodate anything you ask for. Great place for pub grub at the weekend. Often found ourselves queuing for a seat, which is always a good sign!!

Nice place to go on a Sunday for some lunch or dinner but it is nothing exceptional. Service is good and food is good!

Ordered penne pasta in a tomato sauce with chicken. It was awful! The chicken was reheated and not cooked from fresh, it had a terrible taste and the garlic bread was a slice of bread with a bit of garlic on it! Definitely will not be back.

Not that many places to eat in Kilmeaden. Was meeting friends for lunch and we arranged here. Food was standard pub food. Fresh n hot but nothing amazing. Didn't see a fireplace in the pub which may explain the lack of atmosphere I felt. Nothing particularly wrong with the pub but not worth going out of your way to find... More

Had lovely seafood pie here today. Very filling and tasty with homemade brown bread. My partner had the roast beef. Good sized portion. Once again thoroughly enjoyed it.
