This was my second time here. They were not able to get us a seat in the restaurant, we were a larger group, but agreed to get us some food we could eat outside. They kind of overdid the small plates we had (we really...More

We stumbled upon this place and were very glad. It is eccentric, tucked away in a beautiful position with exquisite views, very atmospheric old bar, and very good fresh seafood cooked by a chef who really knows what they are about.

We have eaten in this place three times over the last year. Very tasty seafood in a great location. Particularly if you get to sit outside overlooking the bay. Very laid back atmosphere.

we called in for drinks at this bar which overlooks the beautiful bay. Pleasant garden, reasonable prices and good service.

What a brilliant place to visit. Reminds one of the old black and white movies with wind swept shores, rugged terrain, sailing boat leaving the harbour as fishermen prepare their lobster kreels- and then Dawros house with its eclectic mix of people - local farmers,...More

Well worth the trip out if you are in the general Ardara area, the road out is a loop so you can travel round in a circle and both ways into the hotel are stunning. Rossbeg it's self is a harbour on one side of...More
