A must!

Although you are not the numer one fan of Enya, a visit to her family pub is a must. Super nice service, and really worth seeing all the pictures in the pub. And if you go on a Wednesday you can enjoy live music!

Teach Leo's is a lovely pub - you are greeted with a lovely cosy atmosphere as soon as you enter. Here you will find some of the best musicians & singers in the County. Staff are very friendly & they serve a good Guinness.

I went with an open mind because I had heard mixed reviews, The place was practically empty when we arrived service was prompt and the lady who served us couldn't have been more helpful. There was a reasonable range of dishes on the menu with a quite a few clearly influenced by asian cuisine. The standard of the cooking was... More

I agree with the last review. Food was not acceptable for such a high price. There are much better places to eat at more affordable prices. Think the pub/restaurant is without any atmosphere and is trading on being the home of Clannad. Would not return.

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your visit to Leos Tavern wsd14 and we didn't meet your expectations... We are very much aware of what our competitors services and prices are - hard not to be when we all live in such a small community. As you wont be back we cant make it up to you. :( More

As a pub for a drink and relaxed environment then it's great. We went for food and were sadly disappointed. There aren't loads of places to eat in this area of Donegal and the food was really poor. There's a decent enough selection on the menu but when our food came it was so basic. It seems that the main... More

Thanks for your review Scrumpy_jon. Sorry that the whole experience, especially the food, wasn't to your liking. I can only apologise and surmise that you got us on a bad day... as the vast majority of our locals and visitors continually return for the food. Ever since our chef Tomazs joined us in March the food has been one of... More

I booked a meal for 5 adults and 17 children ranging from 3 years to 16 for last Sunday, there was no problem accommodating such a large party despite only a day's notice and three changes to the time.

This pub is the home of the Brennan family. They are a very large musical family and have produced amongst other Enya and Clannad. The food here was excellent. The service was very friendly and first class
