We go to downings most weekends to our holiday home .

There are two hotels Downings Bay hotel and the Beach hotel , the Beach does have a rear beer garden that I would imagine they woudnt mind you having a dog there ,( hope so as we just got puppy)

Also there is the Harbour Bar overlooking which has outside area and on the Atlantic drive 'the singing pub 'has outside area and are quite friendly.

In Carrigart the hotel has small side pub think they may be ok but not sure.

Great place to go with dogs loads of beaches and we see lots of dogs.

enjoy your break !!

We spent the first week in March in one of the Coastguard Cottages in Downings and had our two little dogs with us.

The owners of the Beach Hotel actually asked us to bring the dogs with us when we went there in the evenings for drinks or food. They have a dog themselves and don't mind their guests bringing their dogs into the bar (not the restaurant, though, which is fair). And as mentioned, there is a beer garden out the back, so there is no problem about taking your dogs with you.

And as for beaches... your dogs will love it there and so will you!
