Called in for a drink 1 x man band playing on Saturday Nite (24th Aug) great musian with super vocal range. Bar very busy . Female toilets where smelly and dirty with door to gents left open with Males urinating in full view. Went to bar Lady in Black top with Tatoos on her back was ?? Well certainlly in need of a Shower . Seriously the smell was following her anyone within 1-2 metres. Felt like handing her some soap and deodriant discusting. We got our drinks and left without finishing them . Met another couple who had a sinuliar experience. The lady in question was up dancing to Sean South with smell following her... seriously poor experience. This was a pity as McKelveys bar was recomended to us. Will never be back. Mr Publicial please purchase a bar of SOAP and hand it to this lady as it is not good for your custom. We left and drank the rest of the evening in jacksons Hotel and listened to great music and clean toilets.

Response from Jim M, General Manager at Mc Kelveys Bar
Responded 14 Nov 2019
Hi Familyman 1961, this is the first time the bar has ever had a complaint. Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit to the bar! It was a very busy night and it sounded like everyone else was having a good time! The lady that was up dancing was enjoying herself and joining in with the great musical experience and atmosphere of the night. Both toilets are cleaned every hour and checked regularly. If the gents toilet door is left open, you can see into the toilets, BUT the urinals and toilet CANNOT be seen from outside as they are around the corner, so you CANNOT view anyone (urinating in full view) as you put it unless you are standing at least six feet inside the male toilets and looking around the corner. The management and staff puts a great deal of effort and hard work to ensure everyone has an enjoyable time whilst there stay in the bar. Regards Jim M

This bar was opposite our hotel so we popped in for a Guinness and ended up staying till nearly midnight! We met some lovely people in there, not least Gavin the barman and Don, who kept us entertained all night with his stories and his singing! I tried my first Guinness in here and have to say, I loved it!

Called in for a quick pint on a bit of a tour of the pubs in Ballybofey. The barmaid was very friendly and the atmosphere was great. Lovely pint too.
