Begin your morning with a hearty full-Irish breakfast—to keep your energy up all day!

Our homemade traditional breakfasts—with a range of choices including continental, full-Irish (with a choice of poached, scrambled, boiled or fried eggs) and porridge—are served each morning between 8:30 and 10:30 in the Old Station House gallery, where you can browse the historic railway memorabilia on the walls and learn about the local history, or relax by the hearth and plan your activities for the day. With a start to the day like this, you’ll be sure to have plenty of energy for the adventures ahead!

Breakfast is included as free for each overnight guest.

Satisfy your hunger with some delicious home-cooked food, fresh from our country kitchen

Whether it’s a spicy chicken curry or a good old Irish fish and chips you’re craving, our country kitchen serves a vibrant and constantly changing menu every evening with something for everyone—including imaginative vegan and celiac options too!

So if you’re absolutely famished for that juicy burger or fresh baked salmon after a long, invigorating day exploring the wilds of Inishowen, come home to The North Pole Bar and satisfy that hunger in the best possible way—by relaxing in our lounge with a drink in one hand, a fork in the other, and good company all around!

And if you’re really lucky, there might just be a traditional Irish music session as well!

Plan your own Adventure

Home to Ireland’s most northern point at the wind-swept cliffs of Malin Head, and the final destination on the Wild Atlantic Way scenic tour, the peninsula of Inishowen is a uniquely idyllic and invigorating holiday destination.

With its breath-taking mountains, long, sandy beaches and wild, secluded rivers, you’ll find the perfect activity to suit your taste—whether it’s a relaxing day out on the links, or grabbing your surf board and running head on into the fresh Atlantic waves. From hiking to the top of a heady peak and beholding the breath-taking views, to angling for salmon in a quiet secluded brook—or even simply basking in the sun on a long, golden stretch of beach while the world around you passes by—you’ll be sure to find the adventure that’s just right for you.

And, with the bustling shopping districts of Derry City and Letterkenny nearby, as well as a whole range of unique craft shops and villages around the peninsula, you’ll have so much to do that you might have trouble fitting it all in!
