Overview

The traditional Bar with its beautiful black oak backdrop has a warm welcoming feel. The open fire with its log and turf blaze catches the eye of the weary stranger and local alike. Called the Guinness House O Donnells is renowned for its Guinness on Tap, with the barrell located beside the dispenser the locals believe this is the key to good drink. A steaming hot whiskey or irish coffee expertly made by one of the family soon restores the weary traveller.

One of those little gems that you find in Ireland that ooze charm and atmosphere. Has billiard table in the back.

Always a craic here. Surprised to find a Pool table and this is a big plus and should be advertised because you wouldn't know it's there. Clean larger/beer. It's nice to see a venue take pride and clean the beer lines (obviously weekly) as it's...More

We recently stayed three nights nearby at the wonderful Castle View B&B. Came all three nights to this pub. Nice bar staff, two sisters who reside nearby, were friendly and professional. Saw some fine live Irish music. Walked to the nearby Harrison's for late dinner....More

Popped in here for a pint before going to see a local play. Lovely pint, nice staff and a roaring open fire. Walls adorned with pictures and memorabilia. Board games available too. Well worth a pit stop.

This busy old pub has stood at the centre of Cliffoney, Co. Sligo, for many generations. It even featured in Ireland's turbulent past almost a century ago, when gunmen laid siege from the roof upon the police station opposite. It has a wide clientele, from...More
