This is one of the best restaurants around, it offers beautiful food- with a wide range of interesting options; in amazing surroundings and with great service as well. If the thought of amazing food and a gorgeous view appeals to you, then I couldn't recommend it enough!

First night of our WAW trip around Donegal and we made a reservation here based on a recommendation from a friend who lives locally. Lovely setting, friendly staff. We enjoyed fresh fish courses and chilled white wine watching the sun go down, lovely way to start our trip. Homemade desserts finished the meal nicely. Would recommend a visit if you... More

I can not recommend the beach house highly enough, food, service and staff all well above average, in fact absolutely excellent in every sense. It's a relatively small venue for a wedding, but very warm, friendly and extremely accommodating. Entertainment was privately booked I understand, but the best I've ever experienced at a private function. Had the most fantastic enjoyable... More

We were very happy with the food and service here. When our main was a bit delayed, we got a small complimentary soup. A nice tough. The location is second to none!

Called in here on the off chance of getting a table on a Sunday afternoon. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, in particular the lady at the front desk, couldn't do enough. Ordered the afternoon tea for two, scrumptious!! Everything was so fresh, the oven bread & cakes seemed as if fresh out of the oven. definitely worth a... More

I love the location of the Beach House. It is right on the beach with the most amazing views over the Swilly. The staff are very friendly and helpful and found us a seat at a window. However I feel that the food and presentation are not as good as they use to be. I have visited here at least... More
