Legend has it
Unlucky To Pass
The Inn nestled in scenic Bluestack Mountains in Barnesmore Gap, County Donegal has seen much change since it was founded by Biddy and her husband, Denis over 150 years ago. But, what remains is the same spirit of Irish hospitality and community spirit.
Walk through the doors as a local or a passer-by and be welcomed by our friendly staff. Enjoy Donegal’s Best Pint of Guinness in the old bar or a freshly prepared, home cooked meal from our Executive Chef Team; Chris McMenamin & Colin McKee in one of our newly decorated dining spaces.
We operate on a first come, first serve basis for food and drink, so you can just walk-in and ask to be seated for food.*

Unlucky to Pass
Biddys O’Barnes is Donegal’s and indeed one of Irelands’, most famous pubs. Nestled at the foothills of the Blue Stack Mountains, on the Banks of the Lowerymore River, nine miles from Ballybofey and just six miles from Donegal Town, it is a little haven of tradition in the Donegal countryside.
