This is a very unassuming restaurant and pub with a fantastic view overlooking Rossnowlagh and fresh seafood. Does a great trade with locals and tourists so ring ahead for dining in peak season - pub menu also available. They also have basic accommodation upstairs.

I love the food and the cosy feeling even when the rain is beating off the windows. We go here as often as possible for lunch and it is very child friendly. They have a turf fire and a great selection of drinks available.

We went there for lunch during our holidays. The service was great, the menu had a good range of food and the view from where we sat was amazing. We even saw a couple of dolphins. The food came quickly and was delicious

We had a really lovely night in the Smugglers Creek Inn, although the rooms are small and basic this is more than compensated for by the amazing location. The restaurant was great, good food with fantastic views out over the beach and a lively bar for a few after dinner drinks!

Went for a meal with my grandparents and a friend here recently - the food was lovely but a little bit pricey. The atmosphere is pleasant even though we were booked in early and didn't stay for the live music, which has a good reputation. The view is absolutely spectacular on a nice day, but it's awkward to park (usually... More

7 of us had a wonderful two hour walk along this wide beach with the wind blowing and then having worked up a good appetite went up to the Inn for supper. Very popular but we found a table in the bar and had wonderful chowder, excellent sausage and mash and fish and chips and some very good oysters and... More

I stayed at the Smugglers for two nights. I knew in advance that I would have to move rooms (last minute booking on my behalf). The first night I stayed in the room with the balcony and fabulous view (Room 4). The second night I was in room 5 which was much smaller but comfortable. Both rooms needed a little... More
