A party of us went here for a late Sunday lunch. This was my first time to eat here and I was pleased with what I found. The menu was a good range of dishes and also, as a vegetarian, I was well catered for. The staff were lovely also, and nothing was too much trouble for them. I'm hoping... More

We don't usually respond to reviews, but in this case I feel we have no other choice. I am very disappointed that the Owner and Staff of a neighbouring Restaurant would conduct their business in this fashion. Thank you for your visit last May. More

So glad we happened to stop here for lunch en route from Dublin to Sligo. Parents and kids very happy - food was lovely and great value too and we even managed to squeeze in a game of pool before hitting the road. Arrived tired and hungry, left happy and relaxed - what more could we ask for.

Stopped here while touring the area. We were pleasantly surprised by our lunch. We both had great vegetable soup and brown bread. Both were very tasty. I enjoyed their Chicken Caesar Salad. The service was very friendly and quick. They have great Wi-Fi as well. There is good parking and it is easy to access from any of the local... More

After walking around Carrowkeel, McDermott's was a convenient stop for lunch. Food was quite good and the people very friendly.

Have eaten there a couple of times in the past and it has never failed to impress . Sunday lunch the other day was no different . Where else in Ireland would you get a very generous starter portion of smoked salmon followed by a very tasty roast lamb mains with all the trimmings and finish up with a "Chocolate... More
