With a breathtakingly beautiful clifftop view of Donegal Bay, this mid-19th-century inn is a fantastic place to come and watch the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean. See if you can get a table outside or in the conservatory. Order from the bar snack menu, or a full meal a la carte in the restaurant. The steaks are good, but the seafood is really what’s best here: chowder, smoked mackerel, scampi, crab claws, or the “symphony of seafood” platter. Vegetarians are better catered for than you might expect at a little restaurant in the back of beyond; try the delicious brie and sweet pepper tartlet. Wash it all down with a pint of local ale. The menu is decidedly more limited during the day, but the sandwich menu is a welcome alternative to a huge lunch. Note that service can be a little slow, however, especially when it’s busy.
