Loved the dessert idea so much as there was so much choice, this solved my problem choosing! The batter on the fish and the onion rings was devine. The... More

I ate dinnner here during a bicycle tour and it was delicious. I came in to eat on Irish Tapas night, and was able to sample locally sourced dishes, including seafood, vegetables, and beef. The gastro pub was busy but service did not suffer, and the beer and whiskey selection is superb.

After a day of driving around the coast we wanted a hearty meal at a good pub that we could rely on. Nothing super fancy, just quality pub food with top ingredients and that's what we found at Kennedys. Staff very friendly and food was top notch. Would recommend and go again next time we're in Donegal.

Been here many times and have never been disappointed with the food. In response to the "disappointed" review from the 8th of Oct, I can personally say that the fish and chips here are excellent and the hand cut chips are made from real potatoes (you can see skin on some of them still as they were cooked which I...
