    Great Lunch

    We had lunch at the Old Castle Bar yesterday with our Golden Retriever. Our dog was the focus of attention from staff - getting his water bowl before we got our drinks - and friendly pars from many of the customers. The food was excellent - chowder, smoked salmon salad, fish & chips. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and will definitely return.

    Don't bother bringing your dog

    Food is ok but the service lacks any warmth or sincerity and if your dog even barks once, you're out. Not a place I would say is dog friendly.

    Not dog friendly

    Having recently visited here with my lovely little dog I can honestly say that the restaurant is not dog friendly! When we walked in everyone gasped and made comments that we had a dog making us feel very uncomfortable! Following this the man at the next table began to tease and pretend to bark which understandably caused my dog to bark is response as she felt threatened! The manager then came down and asked us to leave stating 'that they allow dogs but only if they are quiet'. This was after us having spent €100 and we had not even finished eating or drinking!! Having visited here before and seen/HEARD dogs in the place I thought it would be ok to take my pet with me; maybe this only applies to locals!! I will not be back and considering that up until this incident I often frequented this place when I was in Donegal town, I will never be back!!
