Few eateries can include a full day food experience but these guys managed beginning with a welcome drinks an canapé reception at the Inn at 10am, a scenic farm tour followed by a coach trip to the local brewery for a taste of Jack Cody's beers, on to Derrycamma oil farm and then to Terry Butterlys smoke house to taste...

Stopped here on our way home to break up the journey from Kildare to Belfast. Very busy on a Sunday evening but they had a great system in place. While you wait in the lounge bar they give you a menu. A staff member then comes and takes your order and gives you a pager. When your table is ready... More

As a child I ate here frequently with my family, but for many years more recently I felt that Donegans, as we know it, has been over-rated. On my most recent visit I was very pleasantly surprised! The updated decor is very nice and our meal was very good. The waitstaff was attentive. I made a poor choice for dessert... More

Was really happy with our Fathers Day meal. The place was extremely busy but made for a bubbly atmosphere. My sister in law had spoken to the ?manager (cannot remember his name but he came out and greeted us warmly ) about arranging a special chocolate eclair for my brother as this was his favourite dessert from childhood. Even though... More

Dinner was perfect staff has a lot to be asked for as the manager carl was very blunt asked us to move on as soon as we had finished our food in a very arrogant manner.

Dear Louthboy, Thank you for your review. We cannot understand what you refer to, when you say "you were asked to move". When we are very very busy we have, in the past, asked a group to move to a different area, to facilitate other diners. However this has not happened since last Christmas! My manager Karl is never "blunt"... More
