McGrory’s Bar, Hotel & Restaurant

A world renowned music venue this attracts top acts and visitors from all over the world. Positioned very close to Culdaff’s beautiful beach.


Rosatos Bar And Restaurant

Award winning bar and restaurant. Indeed Tony Bramwell, who was The Beatles road manager said it was one of his favourite pubs in the world – and he’s been in most of them.

He also said that if he knew someone who wanted to open a restaurant that he would advise them to come and see how it is done in Rosatos. “It works like clockwork” he said.

Oh, and you never get a bad meal there people say.

Corner Bar

A real traditional Irish pub with great craic, repartee and music. A great place to put on Edinburgh Fringe Festival Sell Out performance When Judas Met John which will take place on Sunday August 25th at 8pm.

Foyle Hotel, Bar and Restaurant

Run by one of Ireland’s greatest chefs, nationally known TV chef Brian McDermott. What could beat a bit  of great food, a few drinks, great Dylan music and then a short walk up the stairs to the luxurious bedrooms.
