From the mirrored walls to the simple handcrafted tables and chairs, Damian's restaurant speaks of local artistry and community spirit in the small village of Falcarragh. A cozy but spacious hub of activity, the restaurant offers generous helpings of food and fun. Owner Damian Maquire-head chef and chief conversationalist-dishes up mounds of chips and cod on heaping plates to satisfy the heartiest of appetites.
Bright yellow curtains billow as the cool sea breeze flows in and fills the space with a calm assurance that at Damian's everyone is welcomed with a friendly smile...and a jab or two at last night's escapades. Most striking, though, is the breath-taking view right outside the front door-of the magical, mystical Tory Island where Irish language, customs, and legendary traditions (those of the Gaeltacht) still flourish.
In keeping with tradition, Damian's serves a full Irish breakfast (eggs, baked tomatoes, sausages, bacon, mushrooms, and homemade brown bread) every day, all day and boasts a variety of sandwich specials, soups, salads, and main courses: Fried cod, grilled salmon, fried haddock, baked chicken and vegetarian lasagne. At Damian's, the house specialty is simply good food...and good fun.
