Beautiful unique bar and restaurant with wonderful staff, a huge selection of wine, beers and spirits that never runs out, best log fires about that makes for an amazing ambiance and exquisite food that never fails to leave me wanting to come back for more.
The Drift Inn is the ideal place for anyone staying next door at the Gateway hotel as it is literally a 2 minute stroll away and everything you could possibly need is contained in this well preserved old railway station.
Great outdoor space at the rear of the building for parking up and chilling at the outdoor tables with a nice cold pint in the Summer! (Or a hot port more suitable for the weather!)
Always a place to meet an interesting character or two and one of them places once you get inside you don't want to leave!
They have the best Karaoke about on Friday night and on Saturday evenings they have only the best live bands playing till late!
I thoroughly love this place the food is amazing, especially the sell out specials that are available every weekend, its obvious the chefs know good food and its an added bonus as all the ingredients are sourced locally!!
This place is well known for the most amazing Seafood Chowder and my other favourites include the oatmeal and fennel crusted Tipperary goats cheese and the Drift Inn Famous half pound steak burger with Old Dubliner cheese and Ballymaloe relish, this food is the best of the best and not a place nearby comes close to the standards that the Drift Inn reaches.
I thoroughly love this place and make it my priority to take family and friends there anytime I'm in Buncrana or near the North West of Ireland at all. I don't often write many reviews but this is one I'll happily take a minute to do as this is thoroughly well deserved!
Its so great to see people putting thought and effort into making a great business successful and including the local businesses with it!
Keep it up guys!
