This famous traditional Irish pub is nestled at the foothills of the Blue Stack Mountains, on the Banks of the Lowerymore River, nine miles from Ballybofey and six miles from Donegal Town. Biddy’s was originally an Inn, dating back to the 18th century, a time when the Coach was the main form of transport, here was a stopping point, where horses were rested, and travellers relaxed before the next stage of their long and tiring journey through the Gap. Biddy’s O’Barnes, to this day remains a stopping point for today’s traveller. People from all over the world now pass through these doors. Pub grub served daily. However you spend your time with us, we hope you enjoy your visit.

Hen & Stags

Every weekend (and some weekdays!) energetic hen and stag parties stop off at Biddy’s for a refreshing beverage or tasty bite to eat before and after their big weekends away. We offer a special printed photograph in front of our famous sign for all who stop in.
