Worth the climb
This lovely restaurant is welcoming especially on a cold wet Spring day. After another visit to Sliabh League we decided to reward ourselves with some warm Chowder and freshly made brown bread. The restaurant looks big on the outside but there is a craft shop in the second half and so there is a limited number of tables available for diners.The service is fast enough for such a busy place especially in the Summer. This time of year you will have less bother with tourists and seating won't be a problem. The sea food is locally caught I am told and fresh. Hard to beat that. I will be back again with some American guests later in the year .

The best food in the glen
Glencolumcille isn't exactly overrun with options for eating out, so I was happy to see Benny's appear last year and happier still to find that they're still in business. But it's no surprise. This isn't the healthiest food around, but it's delicious and fast, and you get fairly big portions for your money. The fish is superb, but I also love their sausages.Benny's accepts orders by phone. If you can, call ahead to save yourself some time. You can find hard copies of their menu around town or view it online on their Facebook page. They always seem to be busy when I go by, but they work hard to bang out the orders and they've always got a friendly word for everyone.This isn't the kind of food you can eat often but it's a lovely treat and a must try when in Glencolumcille.

Fantastic with a few problems
Meal service charm and breakfast amazing. Room and shower finished to a high standard..bed amazingly comfortable. Beautiful outside sitting areas and parkingHowever room was small no where to sit or put your luggage no window so no ventilation apart from a grill no tv radio or telephone (reception for mobile phone nil). Finished to a high standard yes but still being finished very noisy at breakfast also no fish excited salmon might mixed with scarmbled egg (which my husband loved)

Ann-Marie knows where she is heading...
...and deserves support. She took over thinks restaurant in March. We were a family party from the UK and dropped by on the ‘off-chance’ of a good meal. Busy and buzzing with a local clientele, we were warmly welcomed and quickly seated. Everything thereafter was just what we wanted - informal atmosphere, unfussy, good hearty food and friendly, efficient service. Great value.

We were staying close b and went in for lunch. One of the best soups I have tasted, carrot, lentil and orange. Plus sanswiches and divine cakes.The shop had very beautiful items, nothing tacky or too touristy and I found the perfect mug that I have been searching for for years. Well worth a stop when you are visiting Slieve League.

The Village Shop & Coffee House is very close to the Silver Strand Beach in Malin Beg. There is outdoor seating which is perfect as it offers stunning views.The food is reasonably priced and very nice, we went for toasted sandwiches.Overall a nice place to stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner in Malin Beg.

Avoid at All Costs !
I went back and forth regarding what to put for this rating. I ordered the sweet and sour pork and I hate the fact that the pork and sauce was very soupy. I far prefer less sauce and chunkier pieces of port but this was exactly the opposite. The pork combined with the sauce and fried rice tasted marginal at best worthy of no greater than a 3 rating in TA. However, when I tasted my gf's beef fried rice, everything changed. Her beef fried rice was hardly edible worthy of a TA rating of 1. I'm taking the average of these two ratings and ending up with a 2 which I feel is a generous rating. You can do much better than ordering from this place. Such a disappointment !We apologise if in your opinion the food was not to your liking.We would like to invite you back to try our food again and this time make your preference on how you would like the dish cooked.Take into consideration that Asian taste is very different to European and that is a well known fact and have not had this dish called into question before and it is a popular choice with our customersWe saw you did finish the food and left nothing over which is confusing if your now complaining it wasn't to your liking.As you ate in the premise if something was not to your satisfaction that would have been the time to voice your concern so we could have rectified the issue with either a different dish or a change to the one you finished.We do take on board all concerns about our food as we take great pride in what we cook.The Chef and staff are visible from the time you place an order ,through the cooking and then to the moment it's presented to you.We shall look at the dishes in question and review its preparation and taste.Again, please call in and we shall endeavour to put a smile back on your face.We look forward to seeing you.
