The Fishermans Thatched Inn

All are welcome at Sean Ward’s picturesque and aptly name pub, and everyone enjoys the atmosphere – with a welcoming fire in the grate and the front bar jam-packed with bric-a-brac, it’s a delightful spot.


And there’s music too, with local musicians playing traditional sessions on Tuesday nights all year, also Sundays in summer.


It’s not a daytime place, except at weekends, and it makes no pretence of being a food destination either: a range of gourmet pies, made in Donegal and served with chips, is the only food served – but it is a magic spot, and you’ll be glad you found it.

Opening times: Usually open from 6pm midweek, Sat from 2pm, Sun 12.30-11. abbreviations
