One of our party ordered the lobster and he was rudely told 'it's out of season' and she laughed. Why have it on the menu? Food was poor, pasta...

I don't know where to start! We had booked one nights b&b during August, but within 10 minutes of arriving we asked could we stay another night ! The minute we drove up the road, you just got this sense of calm and relaxation. We were greeted by Emily, who is just lovely. Super nice and a very good host....

Stopped here for late lunch/early dinner. It's in a beautiful location and there are great views from inside. The bar area is nice and kind of what you'd expect from an Irish pub. The are built on at the side is bright and open and has magnificent views over the beach. I have to confess I went here with the...

Called in especially after a visit last year nothing has changed. Hospitality the same, made very welcome , service quick and with a smile. Food to a very high standard. Parking can be difficult due to popularity. Wonderful views over Rossnowlagh beach.

Visited Smugglers Creek today for my Birthday lunch. A beautiful location and setting. A friendly relaxed service greeted us which was lovely. My husband ordered the burger and I ordered the salmon, I have to say it was the best salmon meal I have ever had! The basil mash was fab and the dressed leaves finished it off a treat....

We stayed in the cottage for one night. Basic but very comfortable. Bar is very quaint and is great for tourists. We had lunch and dinner in the bar. For dinner I had the well reviewed scampi and claws. It was the best scampi I have ever happened. I would go back just to have the scampi. Breakfast the next...

Stayed here for two nights with my wife as a treat on our trip along the wild atlantic way. The location is lovely. Great view from the restaurant and nice food - well for dinner anyway. As somewhere to stay though I would not recommend it. Very noisy and basic. Breakfast was also poor. The reception from staff was adequate...
