It has been years since I was in the Point, stopped of a couple of weeks ago as we just missed the ferry to Donegal. The place hasn't changed a bit, could do with a good paint job, but cosy enough. The barman was great, an older guy who was a good laugh, but as for the waiting staff, bloody hell, what a disaster. We actually missed the next ferry because of the wait (the ferry runs every hour, so that's nearly a full hour we sat). How long does it take to serve a table of two off a basic pub grub menu? I had to go to the bar for my own drinks and refills as the waitresses all stood around the bar chatting and ignoring their tables. When we asked a young waitress what the hold-up was as we were going to miss the boat, she left and sent another girl down, I assume to be her boss. I asked her the same question and she just gave us a dour look whilst muttering something unintelligible in our general direction as she sauntered off, she didn't even bother coming back, girl needs a personality transplant. The food was fine when we got it, the burger was lovely, can't complain there, but just make sure you aren't in a hurry for anything or dying of starvation if you plan to eat here. Not a pleasant experience for us, I won't be visiting any time soon. If I miss the ferry again, I'll just drive via derry and go to Donegal to eat, it will be quicker.
