We had dinner here and it was a real treat. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Lots of fresh sea food and fish dishes on offer. They even had a children's menu. A pity they don't do an early bird! Really friendly staff.

Nice fish but average €26 for hake is a bit expensive. worth a visit- if just once. Nice ambience and unusual dishes. €8.50 for starter though it was lovely- avocado and crab/

While on a long June weekend break attending Rory Gallagher Festival in Ballyshannon. We drove to Mullaghmore to do some sightseeing and have a spot of lunch.

Eithna's by the Sea was most beautiful last Sunday, the weather in Mullaghmore was only glorious and the atmosphere in the village was great. Lots of locals and tourists enjoying the harbour, the beach and all the amenities on offer. The restaurant was very busy, but everyone was looked after either by Eithne herself or her staff. I had the... More
