The ballyliffen lodge hotel is one of the most welcoming and friendly hotels I have ever stayed in. Jack's restaurant within the hotel offers a great range of reasonable priced food to meet all the family needs. Staff are all friendly and professional and a...wee shout out for Colm who never stops to make your stay enjoyable. Outside the hotel there is great sightseeing and adventures to add to your stay.More

Long weekend in Donegal. Lots of OK hotel restaurant food, until we hit Jacks. Brilliantly prepared and presented local dishes. I went fish all the way and was not disappointed. An excellent restaurant and reasonably priced. What is not to like? Well done.

After a long day driving the Inishowen 100 we stopped off at this little gem on our way back. We drove around the back of the Hotel because it was very busy and met this lovely waitress called Megan who was finishing her break. We...asked if she knew if there were any places available in the bar and without hesitation she went back in and checked and kept us a table while we parked our car. Now that is what I call service. Well done MEGAN. We were seated immediately and without any delay our orders were taken. The menu is quite large but we had no hesitation deciding what we wanted. The food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Thank you for a wonderful service, we will definitely be coming back.More

Food was plentiful and loads of choice. Even if you ordered something and didn’t like the side you could change it. Great service.

On our two nights in Ireland we went to Jack's on the recommendation of our B&B and it was just lovely. There was a wedding on both night but you would not have know they were there. The food and service was amazing and the...views breathtaking. A must.More

Ok restaurant and bar. We are here twice. The food is acceptable but nothing to write home about. Screaming children at a nearby table certainly impacted one meal. Staff young and oblivious. Did not seem to be a manager around.
