Surrounded by outstanding natural beauty close to Mamore Gap the Bar & Restaurant is at the heartbeat of this close knit community with its great food and roaring fires providing a warm welcome to all its customers. Described as a ‘Hidden Gem’ on the Wild Atlantic Way website it’s also worth noting that an extra c.0.5 acre plot has been recently acquired to the rear of the property which provides additional opportunities for the new owners.

The name of Clonmany, in Irish – Cluain Maine has been translated as both “The Meadow of St. Maine” and “The Meadow of the Monks”, with the former being the more widely recognised translation. The village is known locally as “The Cross”, as the village was initially built around a crossroads. Clonmany has four primary schools, Clonmany N.S. (with a new state of the art school), Scoil Naomh Treasa (also known as Tiernasligo N.S. locally), Scoil Phádraig at Rashenny, and Scoil na gCluainte, or Cloontagh National School. Most students from these schools go on to attend secondary level education at Carndonagh Community School in Carndonagh, with most of the remainder attending Scoil Mhuire or Crana College in Buncrana. Clonmany is host to the annual McGlinchey summer school, which attracts many visitors to its exhibitions and lectures on local history. Another attraction is the Clonmany festival, held annually during the week of the Irish August public holiday. The Clonmany Agricultural Show and Sheepdog Trials takes place on the Tuesday of festival week, with visitors from all over Inishowen and the Northwest of Ireland.
