“The locals hang out here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Had a delightful meal in the pub. Locals lined the bar and were coming and going....almost like a scene from a movie! Had a nice dinner with adequate portions and lots of charm and atmosphere

“Outstanding service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Had an excellent meal - the seafood and lamb were both cooked to perfection. The desserts were great too. The staff were very attentive and accommodating - definitely worth visiting!

“local pub. good for quick meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

i must have missed what everyone else was seeing. i think the restaurant is perfectly fine but i didn't think the food was that great. there's not a lot nearby so it's fine to go here but i wouldn't go out of my way to do so in the future.

Ate at Donnellys two nights while staying right across the street at The Twelve. Wonderful, wonderful seafood, great service, and nice ambience. Would definitely return... and return...
