Went here on a wet September morning but was immediately impressed by the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff member and her lively chit chat. Great stop on way home from Donegal to Sligo. Lovely seaside village.

Stunning views, beautiful drive and great food. Seafood platter was huge as well as excellent. There were other choices for those not into seafood. Eithna came by and chatted to everyone and made sure everyone was pleased. Atmosphere was great.
