We went in to have a drink but left before ordering. A bit pretentious and strange..states a wine bar. Much preferred the fleet and tara

I went over for a short visit to stay with my cousin Mary in Killybegs. She introduced me to Hughies - loved it on first sight. The music, the people and of course the lovely generous drinks. I should have gone on the first night of my stay instead of my last. I will not be making that mistake again.... More

Called in for a drink on a Thursday afternoon (about 5pm) Place was full of 20-30 year old who kept feeding the jukebox and playing some nice tunes. Not a place for the more mature couple but more for the younger set.

Great modern decor and a beautiful pint but not for those of a delicate language constitution, even the staff could do with some Davina McCall advice.

Nice enough bar to go to and staff friendly enough but they allow locals in with their dogs. I am a dog lover but on our visit there were two dogs in the bar and their owners were more interested in their pints than their dogs leaving them to roam. They even allowed them up on seats. In my opinion... More

This bar has a lot of great locals that are the most friendly people ever. The bartenders were some of the nicest people we met with a great selection of drinks! The Fishbowls are very cheap and has a HUGE portion of alcohol. Great music with a DJ. A very fun time!

Really quirky bar. Looks like it was recently refurbished. Good IPAs in stock. Worth a visit. Looks like there is a nightclub out the back at the weekends. There is a wine bar section and the main bar.
