When on the Miramichi and looking for a quality eatery - O'Donahughes is a must. If great food in a quality atmosphere is important to you eat here - if not go to McDonalds. It offers a great selection of traditional Irish food at a reasonable cost. Service is excellent and a great selection of beer is also available on... More

I am a local so aware that this restaurant has changed hands within the last several months to a year. I had lunch there in September, 2016 and it was wonderful! The atmosphere is quaint, like I would imagine an Irish Pub to be - very warm and cozy yet upscale. You feel like you are dining in class, something... More

We eat out a lot and this place really stands out. O'Donaghue's is in an early 1800's stone building that has been sympathetically renovated and restored.

My first time at this restaurant may not have a lot of space but that's what makes it so special. The servers and bartenders are very friendly and very quick to answer your questions on their menu. Not sure if their hours but it's best to call or google for information. They know their menu! They will even suggest if... More

When the founders return to visit they can be proud that Stephen LaForest and his team have brought back the high quality. Now with more tables more people can enjoy the great food and authentic ambiance. Just watch the size of portions. Next time we'll share a plate at lunch and have took for dessert! or plan on taking some... More

We stopped in for an early dinner after driving most of the morning and hiking in the afternoon. The warm, friendly staff is what we have come to expect in New Brunswick. Recommendations were offered by staff. Meals were served hot and fresh. A great local crowd who were welcoming filled the spot.

Popped in for lunch. Great food and service. The severs have time for a chat. Make sure you ask about the ghost!

The food is very good. Upscale Irish pub food. The service is always friendly and efficient. The building and atmosphere take you to another place. Love it!
