NOT LGBT FRIENDLY
Nov 2019 • Solo
I'm a transgender woman, I used to frequent this bar perhaps once a month, never had an issue with it until tonight. Went into the bar are ordered a pint of Guinness, and was met by why the bar tender nodding her head side to side saying "no" thought perhaps the Guinness was off or something. I said "have you got anything else to drink" she went on to say she wasn't serving me. I said "perhaps it's because I'm transgender" TYPICAL she said she "didn't know that". Then a male customer became involved. He went on to say "this is trish's pub and what Chris says goes". I asked what I had done, her response was... "You Know.. a couple of incidents away back". This is no way to treat people especially people from vulnerable minorities.

Best Pint of Guinness in Letterkenny
Oct 2019 • Couples
I haven't been in here for ages and a work night out took me here. I came willingly as I wanted to see if the pints of Guinness were still the best in Letterkenny. I can confirm that they are.
This is what would be termed a "quaint pub". It hasn't changed much in the 34 years I have lived in Letterkenny. The family that own and run it seem to be happy to leave it unchanged.
It is a case of " if it is not broken don't fix it". The bar is like an old bar with a low Ceiling and so has the lounge. It has an open fire which is nice in the winter time.
The staff are all friendly and helpful.
The ceilings and walls are adorned by all sorts of old junk including a bicycle. All in all a grand pub. There is a smoking shelter out the back for those people who can still afford cigarettes. Enjoy.

Awful, one of worst pubs I have ever been in. It’s a dump do not go there. Not even a pub really. Old women behind bar was not friendly and was visibly miserable, everybody in there seemed unhappy because of it. We were staying locally and had a lovely meal and pint in McGinleys.

A genuine Irish bar. Service is slow and cash only but atmosphere is great. Would highly recommend for anyone who wants to experience the local drinking scene.

Lovely bar, good Guinness, welcoming coal fire and hundreds of tea cups and old artefacts hanging from the ceiling and on display. What's not to like? Highly recommend a visit here

Hi we visited the cottage bar last sunday night. We had two drinks each and the publican never spoke to us. No please, thank you, where are ye from, its cold out. NOTHING. We are dog lovers and he has even thought his cocker spaniel to be as ignorant as him.
If this is number 1 bar in the town, well God help Letterkenny
