Best Child Friendly Restaurants in the North West

Looking for somewhere child friendly to eat out in the North West?  Here is our pick of the top child friendly restaurants in Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim, Mayo and Roscommon.

In our experience buggies are rarely welcome anywhere. Some places will take buggies from you at the door, others will quite simply refuse you entry.  So when possible if dining out with a young baby bring the car-seat and with an older baby or toddler you will find high chairs / booster seats in any child friendly eatery.  Here’s what we think makes a restaurant child-friendly.


From The Blueberry Tearoom to The Gaslight Restaurant, read the favourite child-friendly restaurants in the South Donegal area and we have recommendations from parents for places to eat in Letterkenny.


Favourites include Bella Vista and Shells Café in Strandhill, Pilot Bar & Ait Eile in Enniscrone. More family friendly restaurants in Sligo here.
