I often travel to Donegal for short holidays, Portnoo being one of my favourite spots. The options for eating out here have been fairly slim, with the Woodhouse (or the Nairn Inn pre 2001) being the only good option; so it was fantastic to see a resultant like the Carnaween open. Since its opening i have eaten here 3 - 4 times a year and I have to say that I have yet to have a bad meal, the food is fantastic and the portions generous every time! The service is always good and often outstanding. On one particular occasion in December 2010 Portnoo was essentially cut off by heavy snow, yet they still managed open the restaurant for just a handful of guests! They also have a great little cafe open in the summer nearer to the beach, serving easily the best coffees in Portnoo.
