I had no idea this place existed, nor its history - the advantages of traveling with a local. What a surprise, plus the scenery along the road from LetterKenny was breathtaking. We got settled and ordered drinks and food. Service was friendly and helpful, funny actually. The food was to live for - a giant fish and lots of salad... More

We are currently holidaying in the fabulous Waterfront Hotel, Dungloe. Last Sunday we made the bad mistake of visiting Leo's Tavern for a meal. Despite a near empty lounge, we were totally ignored by the staff(7pm in the evening). After sitting for over 10 minutes we decided to leave, which was quite upsetting for my husband who has a disability.... More

We were travelling through Donegal and being fans of Clannad we decided to visit Leo's Tavern for lunch. Not only does great music have its home here - so does great food. My husband enjoyed his huge bowl of mussels and my vegetable soup and wheaten bread were also delicious. The pub has a nice feel inside and is decorated... More

We had a wedding reception at Leo's for our guests who came from the 4 corners of the world. Bartley and his team pulled out all the stops and more (!) to make the event a very memorable one. Tables were beautifully set and live Irish music on arrival was a great touch. Locally sourced food was another highlight. The... More

I have been here a good few times over the years and always had a good time the food is good and if you want a good night the bar is great especially when the fire is lighting one bit of advice try to avoid when the tour buses arrive it can get very full.

Called here today with our 5 kids, one of whom we were meeting up with from the Gaelteacht for some food and a catch up. Staff were lovely and friendly, food was great and a nice place to just relax and unwind. The only downside was that it was a tight squeeze for a large family but we managed all... More

On entering Leo's Tavern at about 5.00pm we were seated at a table but after waiting about 15 minutes, my husband had to approach a waitress at the bar to ask if they were still serving food. We were finally given a menu although diners who came in after us were given a menu before us and in fact their... More
