Didn't realize that this was a local attraction when we stopped in after visiting the Donegal crafts shop nearby. The place had quite a few customers at mid-afternoon on a weekday. We got a delicious late lunch and good coffee, good ambience.

Great spot to stop after a walk on the beach for some delicious seafood and a pint! Cosy during the winter and nice outdoor garden for the summer!

An ancient pub with perhaps too much "stuff", Nancy's is nevertheless an interesting place. Much of the décor is historic, and there is a charming little china-filled sitting room. If you're touring with visitors Nancy's is a must-see in Ardara, and the Guinness is top rate, of course!
