Amazing!

Couldn't praise this place more! Food was amazing! Staff were fantastic and the view was first class! And to top it all off when we were leaving the owner offered to drop us home. We had already ordered a taxi but a very kind offer. Will certainly return next time we are back.

Fish was delicious, chips were either cooked in old oil or over cooked. The peas were from a tin. Hoped for better. Standard fare for a pub with a sea view. Staff were friendly and service was good. Would go back for the fish and the view..

We were staying at nearby hotel when we came across the gas light. Welcomed in and asked if we wanted to sit by the fire. We were presented with the most delicious dinner. The entire dish was cooked from scratch and the veg was freshest I've had in a restaurant in a long time. Fish was remarkable. We will return... More

After spending a beautiful day on Rossnowlagh beach on the 17th March 2015 we called into the Gasslight for our evening meal and despite being extremely busy we were warmly greeted and the service was superb. The meal itself was exceptional - both in terms of quality and value - we enjoyed the Gaslight experience so much we are planning... More

We decided last minute to have an overnight stay in Bundoran, but our usual hotel was booked out and the only availability was in Rossnowlagh and this proved to be a blessing in disguise .... I think we have found a new favourite! We were met by our congenial host on arrival and shown to our room. We saw plates... More

Called into the Gaslight on my way back home on Sunday night. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and despite it being packed and with reserved tables the host found us a table fairly quickly. The food was gorgeous and the staff were very attentive and friendly. The view was breathtaking as the sun was just setting at the... More

We went to the Gaslight for dinner on Sunday to celebrate Mother's Day, my husband, myself, our daughter in law and our 10 month old grandson. As always we were very well looked after, and as it was a beautiful day, we really enjoyed the view, which is second to none. Anthony and Pauline are so welcoming, and their staff... More

Nice warm welcome, lovely feel in bar/restaurant, stunning views totally amazing, so relaxing, food was nice but not wow it lacked flavour, think if they simplified it made it less fussy and focused on simple hearty food with flavour it would be a wow restaurant. However I would still go back

Fantastic location overlooking Rosnowlagh Beach, very quaint interior, cozy, excellent food and wine. Enjoyed the tiger prawns, chowder and fish and chips, all very good, generous helpings. Friendly staff.
