Busy little restaurant, conveniently situated on the main street across from a large car park, offering a wide range of food but sadly not catering for all allergy suffers. Enjoyed my coffee and tray bake. The manager and staff were all pleasant, helpful and friendly....More

The Butterrock restaurant is situated on Dungloe’s main street & is the perfect place to head for a cup of hot tea or coffee, a mouth-wateringly delicious slice of homemade apple pie, a lunch of freshly breaded haddock, a soup & sandwich. The list goes onThe Butterrock is an extremely comfortable haven to while away the hours, known far and wide for our abundance of charm and friendly staff.We are renowned for our fresh haddock and locally sourced seafood chowder. But with a full menu of daily specials, a variety of soups, salads and sandwiches for the indecisive, it's hard to decide what dish to opt for, too many delectable options!!. We look forward to serving you!
