“A great evening in Donegal Town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2011

Great live music and friendly people. The lady of the house, Denise, gave some great recommendations for touring the next day.
It is the type of place you want to be wildly successful, but are hesitant to let the secret out.
Enjoy!

“Friendly just like the atmosphere of Co. Donegal itself!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2011

I had lovely days in Donegal Town by the last week of September 2010, and I'm going back for a week by the end of February! I love Donegal, and The Reel Inn is to me one of the best reasons to make frequent visits there! John, the owner, and the other guys playing or working there, make you feel really well. I had the pleasure of presenting some songs myself, and the other musicians were always supportive! Egil, Norway
