Thank you for the amazing review. It was indeed a colourful night with Eunan McIntyre playing a blinder on guitar. What could be finer in life but good food washed down by great wine and followed with great local talent. We are blessed with an amazing number of great performers living in our locality. Great to meet you and hoping you both will be back again soon!

Really fun spot in Killybegs with a great heated outdoor area with brilliant cocktails, lovely food and sumptuous casked wine (we had the Sauv Blanc and highly recommend it). Staff were so friendly, we were really well looked after by Regina and Jordan. The live music was fantastic and it's definitely somewhere that we will visit again

Thank you for taking the time to write such a fab review. We are adding to our wine from the cask options by introducing an additional 8 options. The live music in the courtyard has been a great hit and a welcome relief from our long long lockdown. Great to hear you are going to visit again. See you then

Called in on a Saturday night on the off chance we could get a table. There was tons of room inside so wasn’t a problem. Also an option to sit outside. Liked the decor. Ordered cocktails - the barman did not know how to make an old fashioned…it shouldn’t have tonic in it! Most of the wine is by carafe only which we’re not keen on. However, all the staff were good and very attentive. I opted for the bacon and apple (soaked in rum) pizza and it was delicious. Hubby had the duck and pear which he loved too. Would definitely return.

Thanks for your very complimentary review. I remember actually making your old fashioned and am equally shocked to discover I served you a tonic instead of a soda. Believe me I must have mistaken the soda for a tonic. Next time you drop in I will make you the mother of all old fashioneds!
