The food was generally ok except for sourdough that was as hard as a rock but 12€ for a glass of wine was unbelievable out in the middle of nowhere. The other issue we had was that when we were halfway through our main course 12 people were placed at a table less than 2 feet from our table and... More

A great wee pub where we always head to for a pint or two whilst staying in Downings/Donegal. Oustanding food and a family friendly atmosphere in the main bar, we always enjoy a visit to Glen!!! On a good day they have a lovely open garden area outside to take your pint!

Visited the Olde Glen on Sunday night. The bar was packed, friendly and welcoming. Had an excellent dinner. Went for the full three courses and every one went down well. Good choice of wine. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. They knew the food and could suggest accompanying wines. Definitely worth the visit. We caught a cab from Dunfanaghy.

Always have to start my visits here with a few pints of Guinness in the bar. They serve a fantastic pint and the traditional bar appeals greatly with a fantastic selection and good service. Through to the restaurant and another meal of high quality. The hake special was extremely good. We ordered three steaks, one rare, one medium rare and... More

This is one of those places you'll fall in love with straight away. You enter through a traditional pub full of chatter and characters for pre dinner drinks then on through to the rear to enjoy mouthwatering food cooked to perfection in the restaurant. Service is always attentive and the food to die for. There's a great wine selection to... More

I can't praise this place highly enough. The food, service and ambience is the best I've ever encountered The staff are so pleasant and really attentive. Live traditional music can sometimes be enjoyed in the front bar while waiting to be seated. And there are always a few locals enjoying the craic for your entertainment while you are waiting!!
