We stopped for lunch in Dungloe as it's one of the biggest towns in the area on the Wild Atlantic Way.

Previously this restaurant was exclusively a fast food takeaway, following a recent makeover it is a more if a restaurant feel to it with a fully licensed bar, nice alternative to what else is on offer in the local area
