Absolutely delicious BBQ in MichaelAngelos. The pork chops/steaks were so tasty and the chilli jam chutney and relishes were the best we’ve had. All freshly home cooked, simply fantastic. If you’d like a home cooked delicious meal for a family occasion I couldn’t recommend these guys highly enough!! They will even join in in the singing Hi Paula, it was our pleasure. Thank you and we might invest in some singing lessons for the next xx

Cafe Arnou is my ‘go too’ cafe/bistro in Dunfanaghy. The service and food is consistently good and healthy options are aplenty. Shannon, Evelyn, Kayleigh....all of them, are consistently good and have a great sense of humour which adds to the ambience of the Cafe. The decor perhaps needs a little ‘facelift’ but it’s appeal is nonetheless undeniable.

The coffee was warm milk flavoured with coffee. The scone was heated in the microwave; served with cold butter and a portion of preserve, as we applied the butter and preserve to the scone it fell to pieces....

Couldn’t resist stopping here after our Sheephaven Bay Swim down the lane. Went to the horse box outside because the weather was so lovely. Beautiful vanilla chai latte and caramel square with a beautiful view and they happily use your own reuseable cup!

Olde Glen Bar and Restaurant

Reviewed By Patricia M

We prebooked (recommend that you do) for 4 on Saturday last. We know the area well so had no trouble finding the bar/restaurant but, be warned, it is quite out-of-the-way with very winding and narrow roads. The table was booked for 5.45 which was only one of 2 slots available. Nice old fashioned bar at the front but the square room behind it is a bit sparse with not very comfortable seating. However, I am being picky. We were taken to our table after having a drink in the 'square room' Starters of goats cheese, prawns were delicious. Unfortunately they were unable to arrange a gluten free version for one coeliac guest who had to make do with a Caeser salad instead. The starters were excellent, despite this. Mains of sea trout, sea bass and bonefish were superb. The sirloin steak for the other guest was HUGE! and excellent. Good wind choice too. Unfortunately I was the designated driver so couldn't indulge in the array of guns on offer. Oh well, definitely on another occasion as I feel we will be back soon. Perfect

The Mill Restaurant

Reviewed By 751VictorB

Have eaten several times at the Mill. On this occasion we stayed overnight and had dinner with some friends. As usual the location is stunning beside the “New” lake. The rooms are well appointed and spacious with all the facilities that you would want including complementary drinks. The Mill has a wine licence therefore no spirits.The meal we had was not up to their usual standard. Both my friend and myself ordered a rare fillet which came over done. However, the ladies had fish which were perfect. In the morning, breakfast had a good menu with lots of options including some local fare. I had an omlette which again was overdone and as a consequence “rubbery” but tasty.Despite these reservations would highly recommend.

The Galley

Reviewed By Cavecanem76

This is a fairly mainstream restaurant. Nothing fancy, nothing horrible. Service was good. The room was clean. Food was ok, but unremarkable. Pizzas probably adapted to local tastes, and some ingredients seemed a bit incongruent. For example one the pizzas stated Basil as one of the ingredients, when it arrived it had dried basil on it-Maybe market demand determined this, but every other place I’ve been to always had fresh basil on the pizzas. Pizza base was good. Would go back.

The Singing Pub

Reviewed By Stephen K

Visited the singing pub after great reviews of read and we were not disappointed. It was our wedding anniversary. We arrived only 5 mins before our 7.30 booking but I fancied a Guinness before the meal and wait sraff Just said no panic come in when ready and we'll get you seated. Very busy for a Wednesday night....all but one small table taken. We had a brie starter between us which was lovely. Service in general was very quick and wait staff were very down to earth and accommodating! My wife had surf and turf for mains. The fillet of steak came out on a hot stone do you could cut it and cook a bit longer if you wished (comes out close to rare). The fish was in a scallop ahell which she loved especiaĺly with the cheese sauce over it. Not often my wife is speechless! I had one of the seafood platters again very nice great portions and you certainly don't leave hungry ! Had another pint each prior to dinner and then shared a bottle of red. We continued to have a few drinks the the bar afterwards. Lovely atmosphere great live music (not too load) and taxi home for 12.30. Highly recommend. All food including wine and couple of pints came too c95 euro....which is very reasonable !
