The atmosphere in this restaurant is one of relaxed cool with gorgeous views of Killybegs. If you are looking for rapid, fired in front of you food in hurry this is not the place. Its a place to catch up with friends, sip a coffee...and eat gorgeous modern food. Staff are helpful and polite and the food is top class and I could not get over the price we paid for what we got, it was one of the most reasonable meals we have ever had. Coffee is also excellent and a special mention to the lemon drizzle cake.More

After a long morning out exploring we stopped by Ahoy. We had a fantastic lunch, falafel pitta & chicken wrap. They are a simple lunch , but the produce was first rate, taste was exceptional, well priced. Service was first rate and great value. Finished...off with their excellent coffee! Will return later in the weekMore

Last Sunday checking to see if anywhere open in our holiday area for breakfast. Limited choice so we travelled the 18 miles to Killybegs. Boy were we glad we did. We were not expecting much. It was early. The first surprise was how busy it...was. Masks worn by all staff and social distance maintained at all times. Two had the full breakfast, including fried potatoes, delicious and I had, which is always my favourite, smashed avocado with poached eggs and vine tomatoes. Now generally tomatoes are considered an extra and charged accordingly. I had a proper vine portion (about 8 baby tomatoes) onsourdough toast smothered in fresh avocado, with two poached eggs. It was so fabulous I feel there is no point in ordering it anywhere again as it wont be matched. Although only 3 of us we felt we had the french toast with the maple syrup, just for the whole experience.. need a new word for delicious. Staff were lovely, especially our young waiter and prices very reasonable. Cannot wait to return.More

Lovely little cafe at docks in Killybegs. Probably the best scones we have ever tasted. Friendly service and excellent coffee. Menu looked promising but we just stopped for a quick coffee on way to Sliabh Liag.

Lovely fresh food in nice surroundings. Fish taco with chips was so delicious and served with a small fresh side salad. The service was great too.
