Lovely afternoon tea of homemade sweet treats including cakes and buns, scone, and selection of finger sandwiches. The staff provided excellent customer service ensuring that we had plenty of tea.

Great atmosphere, beautiful location and very friendly staff. The vegetarian tart tatin was cooked to perfection and stuffed with beautiful roast veg. Pannacotta was perfect - and anyone who has watched Master Chef knows how difficult it is to get this right. :)

I was really looking forward to eating here. We had the early bird menu, which I have to say is good value. Amazing views it has to be said. However my burger was so tough and the roll dry. No relish on it at all. The chips were dry and inedible. I love chips, but ate 3 and left the... More

The Beach House is in the most beautiful setting overlooking Lough Swilly. Food and service are excellent. I particularly like the fillet steak but fish is also good.

Great sea view from it's windows. luxury environment and sofisticated plates. you will eat here (first of all) for a different tasty experience. the prices are expensive but i believe that you must know what are you looking for before you decide to visit this beautiful restaurant.... the variety of wines is good enough and the staff is kind.

Booked this restaurant for my husband's birthday as we are never disappointed and as predicted we had a wonderful time thanks to Claire and her excellent team. We had a wonderful table with a wonderful view and everything we could have wanted. The food was superb from the goats cheese starter to the mains of fish and chicken which were... More
