Beautiful and authentic irish public house in operation for over two hundred years. I love the history of hospitality being recreated on a daily basis. Nothing more scenic than the hills of barnesmore gap and a perfect spot to have a pint in front of the fire.

I had the best Guinness in a long time in Biddy O'Barnes on Saturday! It seems to be a bit hit with the hen parties, two coach loads arrived whilst we were there. Some people ordered food and it seemed to be served really quickly.

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

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!

We stopped off for a sandwich & a beer on our way to Westport. Staff were very friendly and the food was v. Good. We had our picture taken by the open fire. A great stop off point were you can meet some amazing characters. Will definately visit again.
