Recommended by the B&B owner, I went here for an evening meal and a couple of pints. The Guinness was in fine form and I can only describe the meal as excellent. Good quality produce, very well cooked. Very good value as well, worth a visit!

Loved the atmosphere in this friendly bar. There was a lovely outside bar, which catered for smokers. The food was very reasonable and very tasty. Overall a very pleasant couple of hours spent here.

the Teach Dolmain is invariably pleasant to visit, with great ambience, good food and very professional service. On Thursday nights there is a weekly authentic Irish traditional music session with extremely talented performers, which will delight those who have a penchant for this type of music.
