Have you ever heard of the kind of restau­rant that sits on a less than idyl­lic spot, per­haps next to a petrol sta­tion, but that food­ies fawn over? Have you ever heard of the kind of restau­rant that sits off the beaten track, per­haps next to a petrol sta­tion, that has food en­thu­si­asts clam­ber­ing into their cars to get to?

Harry’s is that kind of place. A to­tally unas­sum­ing lo­ca­tion gives away to a pas­sion­ate crowd of food lovers, whose main aim is to shout from the top of Malin Head about how great Inishowen pro­duce is, as well as cel­e­brat­ing other great Ir­ish pro­duc­ers. You can fol­low pro­pri­etor Donal (Harry’s son) on Twit­ter (@Har­rysDonal) and if you ask, he’ll tell you about their walled gar­den a few min­utes from the restau­rant where they grow much of the pro­duce for their kitchen. Check them out for lunch, early birds and evening meals. It’s a big place, with a large dining room with a good view of the kitchen pass, and an old-school fam­ily pub next door.

Sun­day lunch is hard to beat, three cour­ses costs ¤20.95. For that, you could find your­self en­joy­ing a walled gar­den onion tart with Coolea cheese, slices of roast Done­gal turkey and ham with but­tery onion and sage stuffing, fol­lowed by lemon pos­set with rhubarb. So, if you’re hun­gry when you ar­rive in Inishowen penin­sula, make sure you stop off at Harry’s to eat.
