Myself, hubby and 2 friends went for dinner to the Red Door last night and it just wasnt as good as when we had dined here previously. Francis on arrival very pleasant as always, but the standards has really went downhill in my opinion. One...of our favourite things used to be the beautiful Guinness Bread that u got to start and we had spoke about this on the way down in the car, unfortunately there was no Guinness bread only little scones of 1 type. Myself and hubby got the duck noodle salad to start and it was just ok, very little duck in it for €9.95 per person. Hubby asked for his Fillet Steak to be cooked to Medium, it came out almost rare so had to send back, it then came out with a crust on it🙄 by this stage everyone else had there food ate so he wasnt going to send it back again. Garlic potatoes were very greasy, and we all commented on how the food was just lukewarm and not hot. Lovely restaurant but very disappointed this time.More

My first ever time to visit The Red Door after hearing so many great reviews. Me and a few friends went for the afternoon tea experience and what an experience it was!!! The food was delicious, we had the option of afternoon tea and gentleman's...tea so we went for both! Unreal!!! The staff were lovely and friendly and very accommodating. Always coming over to check if everything was OK or if we needed anything else. Would definitely recommend to anyone and I will definitely come back for another visit before I leave Ireland again. Thank you xMore

A group of friends & I went to The Red Door on the recommendation from a friend, & I’m so glad we did. From start to finish, the experience was fantastic! Frances on the desk on arrival couldn’t have been nicer; she made us feel...so welcome straight away & even after our meal gave us recommendations of other places to eat/support too. The meal was divine - we all had fillet steak & practically wanted to lick our plates it was that good! Plus, the customer service was brilliant too, even with the strict covid measures in place. Great to see such a gorgeous place doing so well - Would highly recommend it!More

As we all know Donegal has some fab places to eat but this place is THE best. Staff are unreal lovely to see Peter looking so well and to see the wonderful Francis enjoying a night off. The food was top notch there wasn't one...thing that was served to us that didn't warrant a 10+ it was unreal. Loved the new bathrooms very fancy pancy and the outside seating a definite plus. The staff aere attentive and super helpful, loads of space between each table tbh thats why we love it there as the tables are not on top of each other. Cant wait to go backMore

We loved loved loved the food & the location & this beautiful old house. The food is what it's all about though. Michelin quality but generous portions. Every mouthful a sensation. We would love to visit again when we're in the area & hopefully sit...outside in the beautiful garden & swing under the tree tops. Lovely staff made us feel very welcome. Our only complaint is that we're going home today & won't be able to eat there any time in the near future. We loved this fabulous place.More

We were a party of 4 booked into the Red Door on a Saturday night. The setting is absolutely beautiful and luckily the sun was shining to enhance the visual further. Upon arrival, our table was not ready and a waitress showed us to an...outside seating area where we relaxed over drinks while waiting. We did wait around a half hour before being seated at our table but the cost of a bottle of wine was deducted from our bill because of the wait. The service staff was excellent and food really delicious. No complaints about any part of the experience and I would recommend Red Door to anyone. Not the cheapest meal you will find but worth the treat. The grounds are stunning and I hear, often used in wedding photography.More
