Welcome to Donnellys of Barna, one of Ireland's most revered seafood restaurants and bars. Established in 1892, Donnellys was a thatched cottage owned by the Donnelly family. The family ran a pub and shop here for over 100 years. In 1922 The Black and Tans tried to burn down the building and there are bullet holes still visible at the front of the building.
Although recent developments have changed the shape and scale of Barna, Donnelly's of Barna is still known as a landmark at the crossroads. Despite its last major redevelopment in 1989, just over 21 years ago, we are delighted to have retained the old stonework and woodwork of the original house, allowing us to maintain its old world charm and atmosphere.
Here at Donnellys we specialise in freshly caught fish and locally sourced meat, vegetables and salads. Whether you choose to dine in one of our snugs, or hidden corners or in our formal dining area, you can enjoy the same great menu throughout.
Our chef, Tom Farragher takes great pleasure in cooking and preparing all of our dishes to order, and highly recommends some of Donnelly's favorite dishes. They include Moules Mariniere, pan-fried Crab Claws, Haddock Mornay, Connemara Lamb Pie, Neptune Seafood treasure, Chicken St Elgar and Fillet of Salmon in a fisherman's net. For those with a sweet tooth our Ice-creams, Chocolate Brownies and Fruit Crumble, all made in-house, are a great way to finish your meal. To accompany your meal we recommend our 'wine of the month' wine selections, offering excellent wines at great value prices.
