Also in the Fahan village area. This used to be my favorite place in the world for a fillet steak. But it changed hands and I can no longer gush like I used to. Anyway, there we go! You will need to book in advance, they also do an early Bird sitting 5-7 pm. Try the crispy fried cabbage as a side, its delicious! Also a very cozy bar just for a drink. Phone 0749360137.

Decent food in their bar or restaurant. From 6 pm. The bar is open year round but in winter months food is only served weekends. Traditional music on Thurs evenings in the back bar is always great. Fri and Sat night loud music in the back bar from 10 pm onwards. If you don’t like loud music in an old pub, stay well into the front section of the bar near the fireplace /front door area or plan to leave before 10 pm. This pub generally has a wonderful atmosphere Phone 0749361999

I have not been here for a while but the food reviews are always glowing. There is great seafood on offer. This is also a music venue. Definitely call in advance to book. This is a bit of a drive from the cottage approx. 30 min but it’s worth considering if you been out touring that way. The food comes highly reccomended here

If you make it to Malin head this is the spot for good Crab Claws, Crab Bisque and decent Fish and Chips. Service can be a bit slow , So take your chances! Still its worth the wait for the delicious Crab Bisque . The original little old bar at the far right of the building is quirky as it functions as a bar, grocery store and fisher man’s hardware supplier! I guess this is the most northerly restaurant in Ireland.

These guys also do a cafe on wheels at Malin Head .when you get right to the top of Ireland's most Northerly point, there is decent coffee and homemade cakes for sale at this great customized coffee shop on wheels. The last cakes I had there were homemade and truly delicious. As it’s on wheels, I’m not sure if it’s still there though!

It’s on my list and I do believe its to be HIGHLY RECOMMENDED..... 0749385280
