Great spot

First time here - the establishment is over different floors and can only imagine how busy it would be on a Saturday night. We visited on a Sunday eve - music was playing - good atmosphere - there was a bridal after party which brightened the bar up.. Toilets spotless also.

Stopped off at Doms Pier 1 for Sunday Lunch on the way through Donegal Town and got exactly what I wanted. A great carvery, friendly service and good value, what more could you ask for. You get what you want and as much as you want. Pay Doms a visit and you will not be disappointed.

Food okay, really needs decorating, chairs, table very shabby, really needs an uplift and a freshen up. Service good and the staff were very welcoming. Think there are better places to eat in Donegal Town. Also found the food rather expensive for a pub venue.

Spacious restaurant, overlooking the pier. Lovely setting. Car park nearby. The waitresses all look 14 but were polite and helpful. Food was well priced and tasty.

The dining area is up from the pub and has a large window area overlooking the water. I had a italian style chicken meal with a strange looking potato cake with sauce that seemed to come out of a jar. I should have stuck with something more local like fish and chips which did look tasty. The portions were huge.... More

Called in one Saturday evening. There was not many people eating in it when we arrived. Part of it was closed off for a party coming in later in the evening. It took ten minutes to get a menu and another ten minutes before the waitress came back to take the order. Half hour later food arrived my steak burned... More

A great find overlooking the bay. Sat outside as it was a lovely Sunny Afternoon. The seafood chowder and fresh wheaten bread/ smoked salmon open sandwich was a delight. Good service and was allowed the dog in the beer garden.

Our group of six ate here on our first night in Donegal. The staff were welcoming and seated us where we had a view of the bay as the tide came in. They were having a roast pork, applesauce daily special that was very good. One of Donegal's many good restaurants.

My wife and I stopped here for an early dinner. The place was not busy and we were seated promptly and our drink orders taken. The menu stated that all meals were cooked to order so we were to expect a 20 minute wait, which is acceptable. The restrooms were clean and fresh smelling. We both ordered steak and stout... More
