I ate dinnner here during a bicycle tour and it was delicious. I came in to eat on Irish Tapas night, and was able to sample locally sourced dishes, including seafood, vegetables, and beef. The gastro pub was busy but service did not suffer, and the beer and whiskey selection is superb.

After a day of driving around the coast we wanted a hearty meal at a good pub that we could rely on. Nothing super fancy, just quality pub food with top ingredients and that's what we found at Kennedys. Staff very friendly and food was top notch. Would recommend and go again next time we're in Donegal.

Last weekend, we went to Kennedys for our Christmas staff night out. To say our experience was sensational, would be an understatement. When we arrived, a barman came straight over to take our order, and it wasn't even quiet, there were many others in the bar. We were directed to our table which was a picture to look at, so... More

Can't explain how great the food was. Kevin our server was brilliant. He talked us through the menu and we were not disappointed. Food was made in the restaurant and not out of a bag. Such a great restaurant and would recommend to anyone.

Kennedy's is amazing. The tapas are to die for but make sure you leave room for dessert. Everyone should experience the desserts taster plate at some point in their lives. Never been disappointed here. And it's great value to boot.

We had a meal on Saturday night, excellent food and great presentation, I had the sirloin steak which was first class and beautifully presented, my friend had the seafood platter, one of the nicest selections he ever had. Keep up the good work. Aidan
