At the Drift Inn, our ethos is simple; to provide wholesome, enjoyable food, sourced where possible from local suppliers at an affordable price.

All our Beef, Pork, Lamb and Chicken is 100% Irish and has full traceability from farm
to fork. Grant’s of Buncrana supplies all of our meat and poultry.

Our fish is landed at nearby Greencastle and is supplied by John Byrne and Brendan Fletcher. Doherty-Roe of Buncrana supplies us with our fruit, vegetables, salads and herbs. We keep one eye on the seasons,and work closely with all our suppliers to bring you the best local, organic, wild and artisan produce the North West has to offer.

This paired with a concise wine list and a bar containing a wide variety of draft and bottled beer not to mention our delicious cocktails makes The Drift Inn a great place to eat, relax and above all enjoy a night out with family or friends


The Drift Inn is situated on the banks of the beautiful Lough Swilly, once a functioning railway station up until 1956, then converted to a public house,  it is now a mainstay for excellent food and great craic in Donegal. It still maintains it's rustic charm and feel with the original brickwork and platform in place from years gone by. A passion for great food and a relaxed atmosphere is what sets "The Drift" apart from the rest, not to mention our roaring log fires which are a focal point of the bar.
