We stopped in for breakfast and, returned the next day for another breakfast!! In between, we went there to listen to some fabulous music at night (as well as enjoying a few drinks with locals as well as other tourists)!! Staff as wonderful as the atmosphere!!! Would recommend stopping in here if you are in Bundoran!!!

Menu was extensive and reasonably priced. Good wine list at reasonable prices. There were six of us for dinner and everyone was pleased with food and service. Staff were excellent and friendly. Highly recommended. Will be back.

Staff were unfriendly and were cheeky when the our table asked could we pay separately as we needed to pay by card! Also over charged us and when we confronted the waiter about the situation he wasn't bothered and he began to throw a tantrum! Avoid!!!!!
