Heard a lot of great things about the Beach house, but the location is the high point. Had starter's and steak for main but was all was just average and thus the cost was more than was worth.

Second time here in Beach house. Both times the food was lovely, but the service and atmosphere is just ok, nothing special. After paying the bill, I tipped the lady at the desk (quite a bit!) and she never commented, just took it from my hand. Maybe she was preoccupied but it wasn't very professional. Menu isn't extensive at all.... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a proposal here last night and it was a perfect setting. He had prearranged the large window seat on the top floor with a beautiful view of the beach and bay. The staff were fantastic and as soon as he proposed bought a surprise glass of fizz for us. They were really attentive all night... More

The Beach House never disappoints both in terms of customer service and food. The staff here are always so friendly and super welcoming and attentive. My wife and I love our food especially steaks and this place does the best steaks ever! My wife never like prawns but after I convinced her to try my prawn starter she was sold... More

Just back in from a relaxing, very enjoyable dining experience. The starter scallops were great and the main course rare steaks were sublime; served by attentive and friendly staff. I'll definitely be back.

The Beach House used to be my favourite restaurant in Buncrana with amazing views and good food. All staff were wonderfully friendly, making us feel very welcome and take our orders quickly but then it went downhill! We ordered cocktails and water which only arrived after our food as the ice crusher had broken. If we had known we'd have... More
