On the outside Danny Minnies is a modern creeper clad building which prehaps makes the first time visitor a little unprepared for the magic inside. On entering through a wonderful baronial style entrance hall you are suddenly surrounded by a world of antique nostaligia complete with hanging prints, tapestries and paintings on a background of oak panelling. Elegantly appointed candle-lit tables with white linen and flowers are never far from two warm open fireplaces.
The O’Donnell family run the restaurant. Brian O’Donnell is the head chef and his cooking matches the wonderful surroundings. The restaurant offers a wide a-la-carte menu, presented in both Irish and English. The emphasis is on local fresh seafood and Irish meats. Lobster and crab come from the nearby rugged Atlantic coast.The beef is prime Irish Hereford and the lamb is fed on mountain pasture in Donegal
“I just love Danny Minnies Restaurant in Anagaire in the Donegal Gaeltacht – great food and ambience”
“Danny Minnies in Annagry, is a tardis of a restaurant – a modern house on the outside, inside it’s a warren of cosy rooms with open fires, tables spread with white linen and flowers. Any gastro pub would wax lyrical about the kind of produce served up at Danny’s – sea bass and John Dory (caught locally by one of the owner’s brothers or cousins), vegetables (grown in the restaurant’s garden), the lamb (fed on Donegal mountain pastures). But not here. Simply sea bass with vegetables, says the menu. And very good it was too.”
“Thank you to all at Dannie Minnies. This is my 4th visit and I am never disappointed. The staff are wonderful, warm and friendly. The food is exceptional, fresh produce and cooked perfectly. The restaurant is the most beautiful room in which to have a lovely meal.
This area of Donegal with Carrickfin strand and Donegal Airport is the most relaxing place in the world for a real stressfree trip.”
