Whether it is for food, drinks or a good night's sleep, the Driftwood is a place for you to come and unwind in a fun & relaxed, family friendly environment!

The bar & cafe area is the perfect place for some light food or to relax and have a drink, with gorgeous views over Sligo Bay & Oyster Island. Paudie's pitmaster background has played a big influence on The Driftwood Smokehouse Restaurant, with smoked meats and seafood playing a central part of the menu, which have been slow cooked in the smoker for up to 15 hours, to give a gorgeous flavour & tender texture.

Visited for the first time on Saturday night. Don't know why it took me so long! Lovely restaurant, great atmosphere, excellent food. The calamari starter was fab and the Nutella gnocchi dessert was gorgeous. Have booked again for Saturday night. Hoping for a table by the window which would be the icing on the cake!

Myself and my partner dined out in the Driftwood as we were staying in Rosses Point. The food was absolutely outstanding. We have never had a meal like it. For starter my partner had the chicken wings and I had the seafood chowder. The amount of seafood in the chowder was amazing. For mains we both had the 10oz rib eye steak which literally melted in your mouth. You could nearly swallow the meat without chewing. It was absolutely delicious. We were so full that we shared a desert and we had the cookie dough served in a skillet. I cannot describe what it was like because it was so good. Then to mention the cocktails, they were amazing too. As the saying goes ‘you pay for what you get’. Thank you so much to the Driftwood staff who looked after us for the night. We certainly will be back
