We arranged for lunch at Biddy's for 25 cyclists and there were plenty of soup, sambos and tea ready for us. Basic fare, but filled the troops! hidden from the road so easy to miss. Plenty of parking and areas for eating outside

Biddy's is just off the main road near to Barnesmore Gap, hence the name, this is an old traditional Irish Pub and I have been here on very many occasions on trips to Ireland. They also do homemade barley soup and toasted sandwiches, very much worth a stop!

It's one of those quirky must-stop Irish pubs in the middle of the mountains - with WiFi! The Guinness is good and the atmosphere very pubby. We were sorry to miss live music night, but we will catch it next time!

Well what can I say about this amazing public house... It's got everything that you could look for in an Irish pub. Excellent setting overlooking the Bluestack mountains, friendly locals, great food and friendly efficient bar staff. For a real feel of Donegal hospitality and "craic" this place is a must see.
