My boyfriend and I had a fantastic meal here. We weren't rushed, and enjoyed a local cheese plate to start. The South African wine we ordered went well with both of our meals - lobster special for me and venison pie for him. The value was excellent. People who think the food is bad in Ireland haven't been to awesome places like this.

Two of us had the fish cakes which were excellent. The other person had the sea trout . It was cooked to perfection and declared to be delicious. A very pleasant dining experience overall.

The staff were superb. The bar looks great from the outside and its ok on the inside.

My starter, a smoked salmon salad, was the best I have ever had. Really really really awesome dish!

The main dish, fish, were superb too. And the wine selection was better than expected.

We finished off with a Cheese selection, which was great. I recommend this restaurant, we will be back.

The Olde Castle Bar was bustling on a Thursday evening with clearly happy diners. Staff are very friendly and the food is served in large portions at very reasonable prices.
We waited a short time for a table in the bar, the restaurant had a private function on the night we visited. There is plenty of atmosphere and the drinks are reasonably priced.
I went for the Fish Pie which was absolutely delicious but there was plenty of choice covering fish, meat and vegetarian.
We looked at several restaurants in Donegal Town and were happy that we made the best choice for casual dining.

We had lunch there, and it was so good, we went back for dinner. The fish and chips were excellent! For dinner, we both had lamb, which was wonderful. Watch the specials, however. They had a "special" price on the board for a lamb dish, but it was four Euros cheaper on the menu. When I asked the waiter the difference between the two, he was stumped. He came back saying that he would give me the "special" on the board for the menu price.
