12 of us descended on this lovely little tea room on a late afternoon. They were so welcoming and patient with our different orders. My sister in law and I had the homemade seafood chowder and soda bread and it was absolutely heavenly. We bought some to take back to our holiday home. The rest of the family had coffee/tea/hot chocolate and delicious homemade cakes. They will make up packed lunches for you too but it was too late for us and we weren't coming back that way that week but would certainly do it if we visit again and will recommend others to do so.

We recently had a gathering event in Carndonagh. We choose Nancys barn to do the catering..
Having ate at Nancys barn a few times and been very impressed with Keiran and his staff we asked if he would quote for our event. We were very happy with his competitive price and anticipated good food and good service on the day. We were not disappointed..Kieran and his team visited the venue before the event to access our requirements and facilities. His attention to detail ensured the smooth service which followed. The Food was very very good, everyone loved it and most went back for seconds. We would recommend Nancys Barn without hesitation to anyone planning to use outside caterers.

Having visited Nancy's Barn a few times I asked them to cater my wedding. I expected good food and good service but they really and truly blew my expectations out of the water- the food was AMAZING and the service was first class. After the wedding we went out there for our lunch and once again enjoyed great food and excellent family friendly service. Also Nancy's Barn's cakes and desserts to die for.

Loved a simple lunch in the cafe. Was able to sit outside and the service was very prompt, helpful and friendly. The kind of place you could while away the hours sipping coffee and being outside. Would return readily
