We stopped off for coffee and dessert before visiting the Folk Village. The staff were friendly checked our Covid passes and ID's and recorded our names at the table we dined at. Fully Covid compliant and we were happy in the Cook's Pantry. Coffees were...good and the Apple Crumble and Ice Cream hit the spot. The decor is really tasteful and adds to the ambience of the place. Bathrooms were perfect and one felt they were checked on a regular basis. This is definitely a place to visit when in this part of Donegal.More

It was a misty, drizzly say and we had been driving from Killybegs around Malin Beg enjoying the beautiful scenery. By the time we arrived at Glencolumbkille we had pretty good appetites. The food here is delicious. Their Chowder is outstanding and you HAVE to...treat yourself to the yummy Carrigeen dessert - possibly my highlight dish from our Donegal holiday!More

Honest to goodness food. The freshest salad I've ever had. And the Thai chicken was meaty and soft. Hubby had fish and chips which he was very impressed with and kids stated it was the best pizza they ever had! So super glad we came...across this little gem on our travels through Donegal. Staff were super friendly also. XMore

Great for lunch. Gluten free menu options but were also able to substitute gluten free bread on the sandwiches so there were plenty of choices. Food was very tasty and service was good.

I can't remember if the menu had vegetarian items, but the chef was very personable and accommodating and I'm certain he would prepare a wonderful vegetarian dish if you asked.
