Jib Luff, Inver Port.

Eating Out

Jib Luff has a tremendous selection of eating locations all within 10 miles of the house. Because of it's location just outside Donegal Town you also have access to take aways, butchers and bakeries which will make your holiday more economical. There is also an Aldi supermarket in Donegal Town. However to truly enjoy your time here make sure you eat at Nancy's in Ardara and the Smugglers Creek in Rosknowlagh..... our firm favourites! Nancy's Seafood sign.

Nancy's Bar is a traditional Irish pub, with peat fires, toby jugs, and low woodsmoke stained ceilings. It regularily wins awards for the quality of it's seafood. They specialise in fishy soups, beautiful crab and or prawn sandwiches and their signature sandwich a Louis Armstrong must be tried ...It consists of smoked salmon on traditional soda bread with cheese melted over it.... As dessert they sometimes have Guinness Cake....

Guinness chocolate cake and a pint of Guinness... the way to any man's heart! The Guiness is good too! As they only serve lunchtime food out of season possibly only at weekends, it can be best to telephone to check they are open. Telephone +353 (0)74 9541187 They also have regular traditional music nights, but again telephone them to find out dates and times etc. They now DO accept credit cards. Yippee!!! The Drive to Ardara is one of stunning mountain scenery and the Nesbitt Arms Bistro Pub is located here too.
