We booked for 6 of us to have New Years Eve 5 course meal. It was amazing. The chowder was the best I have ever tasted. Our mains were steaks which were 5 star; my fish dish and the other chicken main was beyond expectations. The service was very attentive and nothing was a problem. We went off menu on... More

We stayed for one night and so had dinner, bed and breakfast. The food at both meals was excellent, only one complaint which is I couldn't fit in desert after the delicious monkfish and tiger prawn main course. The banter at the bar was fun and the selection of gins excellent. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Should also... More

We have visited Anthony & Pauline many times and have always found a warm welcome at the Gaslight. A quick coffee, late lunch with family or romantic dinner for 2, they never disappoint. Its home from home.....

This was my second night in the area and having already tried The Smugglers Creek next door we thought we would give this place a try. Again I wasn't disappointed, a very cosy and well decorated restaurant with great views over Rossnowlagh beach and Donegal Bay. The staff are very friendly and the beer choice was excellent many from local... More

140 euros per night for a room that is the same price yet not comparable to the sandhouse. A fast trick was pulled because of the surfing championships that is the room prices were twice that as the same time last year however the gaslight did not fill it's rooms the night we stayed. The room itself was basic, albeit... More

Location is absolutely amazing. We have eaten here a number of times and for sure we had a great experience on this visit. Friendly atmosphere with very engaging management and staff. Great customer experience from beginning to end. The food was thoroughly enjoyed and complimented by all in our party. Promptly served good hearty food at reasonable prices.

Thank Leo C
