An atmospheric gem of a lovely informal old house with accommodation and a little traditional bar in an exquisite remote setting overlooking a bay. They serve exceptional spanking fresh local seafood cooked to perfection at very good prices with a few tables looking out over the lovely view. But it is really the atmosphere of the place, the laid back and unpretentious welcome from each family member that makes it like visiting friends, the traditional little bar where you can get a pint of Guinness and hang with the locals, listen to music, have a seafood snack, and then at the end of a brilliant night of chat and craic you can fall into bed in one of their newly renovated bedrooms with lovely views across the bay.

I heartily recommend Danny Minnie’s restaurant in West Donegal’s Annagry, which is in the Gaelic-speaking Gaeltacht. The restaurant offers fine dining with plenty of local produce, including seafood, and the menu’s in English as well as Irish. Book into one of the guest rooms and - if you haven’t had enough the night before - you can choose a nip of whiskey for your porridge for breakfast. The cosy spot is only a bagel’s gowl from Carrickfin beach and some great walking to blow away the cobwebs.
Skippers is a wonderful seafood restaurant run by a local family which prides itself on the quality - and quantity - of its seafood dishes.
It also is a very friendly place, great fun, lovely family. It also has a wide range of other dishes - including a great children's menu - children are very welcome.
Burtonport is a fishing village which is the gateway to Arranmore, a wonderful island to vist, and a myriad of other islands. From Skippers, there are great walks, sea trips, plus musical evenings.
