Teach Coll A Welcoming Pub In The Heart Of The Gaeltacht

“Teach Coll” is a long established family run public house located in the North West Donegal Gaeltacht townland of Magheroarty.
Magheroarty is amongst one the most scenic places on the coast line of Ireland.

The pub was established around 1900 by James Coll, the proprietors great grandfather. The name “Teach Coll” originates from this, meaning the house of Coll. The Pub is presently run by the fourth generation of the family.

The Food Locally Sourced, Freshly Made Creations

In August 2016 we re-ignited our passion for good local food after a 20 year hiatus when Edward and Billie took over management of the pub.
A new modern kitchen was built and interior revamped resulting in a cosy bar & restaurant in which the menu emphasises on Teach Coll’s proximity to the Sea & Wild Wild Atlantic Way, allowing us to take advantage of the many local Marine/Agri -Food produce & businesses.
