“Almost there....and what a setting!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Unexpected family business brought us to the idyllically situated Red Door at Fahan. This historic house, dating back to the late 1700s, retains much of its character and elegance, and the views across Lough Swilly are magnificent. We dined in the bar from a small, but adequate lunch menu at a small table. The quality of the food was magnificent. Consequently we felt it a pity that the presentation was so stark. Braised beef and a steak sandwich were both presented on white plates without garnish...a very little more visual appeal would have transfomed the dish. Staff were charming, if a little disorganised. However, the venue was busy with a private party so perhaps late lunch was a distraction?. With some small adjustments, this establishment could be outstanding. We will certainly return to dine again, and may even try
some of the well appointed rooms on offer.

My fiancée and I decided to stay for a night at the Red Door as a birthday treat and we were not disappointed. From the moment we set foot in the door we were made to feel at home. The gorgeous room we stayed in with a view over the Lough Swilly was huge and very tastefully decorated, and the bathroom had a shower, separate bath and two sinks. We dined in the restaurant and had a very well prepared meal that exceeded our expectations, and then we retired to the bar with it's comforting turf fire. All in all a very enjoyable night and we hope to be back as soon as possible.
