I had a group of 7 friends visiting from around Ireland. I called Nancys on the Friday to reserve a table for the seven of us. I knew it was a small bar and seating 7 at a table may be a challenge. I was told on the phone that they don't do reservations. There website mentions bookings for groups or party's. With 7 people I considered us a group given the size of the venue but their website doesn't give an exact number.The lady said to come early to get a table. I was disappointed but tried to be optimistic we'd get a table. After a day touring Glencolmcille we arrived in Nancy's at 7pm. The place was pretty crammed!There wasn't anyone on the floor to seat customs or ask about a table. I went to the bar and asked if there was tables. They said no a big group were in already and all other tables taken. There were 5 people ahead waiting on tables to free up. They suggested we could wait a half hour and maybe they would have something but they could not guarantee it. There wasn't room free to even enjoy a drink comformbly whilst we wait. I did tell the waiter that it was very disappointing to drive to Nancy's specifically and get turned away even when we had tried to make a reservation. The waitress didn't care at all. I most say I was very embarrassed and let down by Nancy's as were my group of friends. In the many places I have travelled I never have been refused a reservation and then to wait around with only the slightest potential of getting a table.I brought my friends to the Highland Hotel Glenties. I did not have a reservation. We got a lovely big table. The service was very professional and efficient and the food perfection. Nancy's should really just be a bar because from what I've read on this they don't seem to have a clue when it come to dining or service!Safe to say I won't be recommending it, my parents are local and have mentioned the times they were there many options on the menu were not available.

Some years back, Nancyâs chowder won prizes and it is easy to see why. The chowder is full of fish and well-flavoured, a generous portion too. I had a prawn sandwich as well - the sauce was full of tasty and fresh prawns. The atmosphere here is relaxed in a traditional Irish bar by the bridge in Ardara. An overall good experience.

Chowder wasn't very creamy, then got same chowder sauce in my seafood pasta main, again not creamy, as said on menu. It was weird texture... Was very let down & got it hard to eat same sauce for both courses understandably I think... Partners steak was overcooked & he was given wrong sauce, so defunately wouldn't recommend & I wouldn't go back. The service was excellent do, pity!Dear Ann MarieThank you for your recent review.
