I was part of a group of five cyclists doing a charity cycle from Malin Head to Mizen Head (the full length of Ireland). We'd brought the bikes by car from London so travelled 15 hours to get to Culdaff. We called McGrory's on the way to explain this and told them we would be there by about 9.20pm and asked if we could possibly eat when we got there. We explained we'd be happy with anything they could give us. John, who I believe is one of the family who runs the place, told us the kitchen closed at 9pm sharp and they weren't prepared to do anything to help us, even though we were staying there as guests that night.
We were forced to divert to Derry to buy fast food. When we arrived at McGrory's, the restaurant was still full of diners and the kitchen staff were still in the kitchen. Not the kind of Irish hospitality one would expect.
