A famous landlady, a deep ravine, and bad luck if you don’t stop!
Biddy’s O’Barnes is named after one of its famous landladies. It dates back to the late 19th century when coach travel was the main form of transport and it was at this stopping point that horses were rested and travelers relaxed before the next stage of their long and tiring journey through the Gap. This is a true family-run pub that has won numerous awards for its friendly hospitality and top quality beers. It is located in a deep glaciated ravine in the Bluestack Mountains that is one of the few passes to get from south to north Donegal. It is claimed to be bad luck if you pass the place without stopping for a drink or a light refreshment! So, it might be a good idea to stop, enjoy the warm fire, the cozy atmosphere, or the surrounding dramatic landscape.
