We ate here twice and each time the food was tasty and satisfying. They pour an excellent Guinness. Get in early as the specials tend to sell out by 7 for dinner.

We had the crab claws and muscles. Big portions and great taste! Toilets were clean although soap dispensers were empty! Enjoyed watching a staff member having fun with french tourists.

Our family had dinner here our first night after coming into Shannon - we were staying at The Twelve. Had our own little room - great food and welcoming service. Definitely recommend.

Had a very nice meal in Donnellys. Food was well prepared and the wait staff was very friendly. Place was busy, but not too loud to carry on a conversation. This is a pub, but overall very good experience here.
