Called in for a drink after a day in Donegal, only to be told by staff that the card machine was 'broken' fair enough, as like most places they also accept sterling. However bar staff informed us that they would only offer us 10% on the pound whereas the current rate was almost 40%(!) I wouldn't be surprised if their... More

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!
