Our party were treated to a great meal in beautiful surroundings at the water's edge. The staff were neat, tidy, well-mannered and courteous. We hope to have a third visit when we are next in Buncrana.

Such a lovely setting for dinner. Beautiful views and friendly staff. There wasn't huge choice on the menu but this was not a problem for us, especially as the food was so good! There is quite the price tag on it but I honestly think...More
