A big “Thank You” for all our customers who voted for us in the 2014 Irish Restaurant Awards. We are absolute thrilled to received six nominations this year! We’ll get the final results next week, will keep you all posted!
Smugglers Creek Inn was voted as one of the “21 pubs you must visit in Ireland before you die” by The Daily Edge, part of the Journal.ie which is an Irish news website that invites its users from Ireland, the world and the web to shape the news agenda.
“A top place with good food, but the real star here is the view. Overlooking Rossnowlagh bay, you can sit and watch the surfers or just look out to the Atlantic. Glorious.” by Michael Freeman, dailyedge.ie

It is hard to believe that it has been four years since I took over Smugglers Creek Inn. Although the business has gone from strength to strength, but it was opened during a difficult economic time and I wouldn’t have managed without the continuous support from my staff and customers. So, a big “thank you” to all of you who helped to make Smugglers Creek Inn one of best destination restaurant in Donegal. I have great plans for the future, including the long-awaited new conservatory dining area which will seat over 50 people and the completion of renovation of all the bedrooms in Spring 2014.
