I get into Barrie a few times a year & had visited this pub in the past. I had a good experience the 1st visit & decided to go again with a different group of co-workers.

I do like this place, but its nothing like a traditional Irish pub. Its just got an Irish name and an Irish sign. No Irish pub would stop serving food at 10pm booze at 11pm and send us all home after. Especially when they are supposed to close at 1am! Sure it wasn't packed, but there was more then 5... More

Very good service, fun environment and food was much better than anticipated. Live music on weekends also a treat.

A lunch of their hearty soup and one of their famous sandwiches was an ideal way to celebrate Valentines Day on a cold February Saturday. This is our favourite Irish pub in the area.

I go to this restaurant/bar often. It has a great atmosphere, great servers, great food and selection of drinks. The food is consistently good, they offer specials most days which mixes up the menu if you get bored with the selections. They have an awesome patio in the summer which I love to hang out on and watch the downtown... More

The food at Donaleigh's is outstanding. Seriously! All homemade and incredible. Best nachos in town. And save room for dessert - the bread pudding is out of this world :) It's a regular for us!!

Where else can you have live music with friends, or sit on the patio, have a beer and enjoy great pub style food? Try the nachos made with thinly sliced potatoes. I would give a 5 star if the service was more consistent.

a perfect large pub with numerous beers on tap. everything ive ever eaten here was great, from the sheppards pie to chicken pot pie, to the n.y steak and my favorite the lobster mac and cheese, good service, sometimes can be a wait around dinner hour since its the best place in barrie to eat downtown.
