Restaurants in Donegal

Don't get us wrong. Donegal does great fish and chips, locally sourced and available straight from our bustling seaports in Greencastle or Killybegs. But that's half the story. We have some of the finest restaurants offering excellent food, from budget to fine dining. All of this served by Donegal people, welcoming and warm and to the highest standard. Check out our eclectic mix of eateries here.

The Cook & Gardener Restaurant


The Cook & Gardener restaurant is the main dining room at Rathmullan House.

Our reputation for fine food has been cultivated over the past 60 years. With fresh fruit and vegetables coming from our own walled garden and fresh fish and seafood caught locally, we have all the ingredients we need to provide high quality, delicious and seasonal plates of food.

With 3 lounges and Batts bar lounge, we have plenty of space for you to relax by the open fires and enjoy your favourite drinks before and after dinner.

During the summer season the Cook & Gardener is open every evening from 6pm and in the off season from Wednesday to Saturday from 6pm. From September-May, Sunday lunch is served once a month.

Reservations can be made online on our website.
