Nancy’s Bar Ardara

Nancy’s Bar is a genuine traditional Irish pub located in the Heritage Town of Ardara in South West Donegal. It is situated beside the bridge over the River Owentocker in the town centre. This lovely pub serves drinks and bar food in a lively, welcoming atmosphere.

Nancy’s Bar has been in the McHugh family for over seven generations – the name Chas McHugh appears prominently over the doorway. The pub itself is relatively small and comprises of a series of small rooms with open fireplaces, and crammed with antiques and bric a brac. Recently a new bar area was opened and an outdoor seating area with an awning cover has also been added

The pub is renowned for its bar food – with a particular emphasis on seafood. It is a member of the Donegal Good Food Tavern Group and was a well deserved winner of the 2013 Georgina Campbell Award for Pub of the Year.

Starters include homemade vegetable soup and chowder served with wheaten bread, local oysters and mussels steamed in white wine. Seafood House Specials include a’Louis Armstrong Sandwich'(smoked salmon on brown bread topped with grilled cheese) and ‘Charlies Supper'(prawns and smoked salmon warmed in a sweet chilli, garlic and lemon sauce). During the summer months Crab Claws and open Crab Meat Sandwiches are also served. Lobster is also available, but must be booked in advance. Other specials include Hearty Fish Pie and Vegetarian Lasagne.

Nancy’s Bar has been a member of the BIM Seafood Circle for a number of years. The BIM Seafood Circle recognises and awards hospitality and retail businesses that consistently deliver the highest standards of seafood and service to their customers.

Nancy’s Bar is also famous for its Guinness and Irish Coffees and for live music. With a bit of luck you could end up in the middle of a traditional music session after your bar meal. Ardara itself is known as the Festival Capital of Donegal and many of the various festival music sessions take place in the pub.
