Slap bang in the middle of the Donegal Gaeltacht (Irish speaking), and slap bang in the middle of the village is the oasis known as Teach Bhillie. (pronounced Chack Villie and meaning The House of Billy) This stone-built double-fronted, two storey establishment is run by Hughie and Fionnula Shiels and is named after Fionnula's father (and previous owner) Billy Doohan. The pub is always sparkling clean, has a warm fire and a warmer welcome and serves the best pint of Guinness in the district. (That's due to clean pipes and expert storage) The public bar vibrates to the chatter of Gaelic as locals share the news and craic. Every Tuesday evening from about 10pm - hail, rain or shine, you can be entranced by the best traditional Irish music 'seisiun' or session in the region. There is NO cover charge, the seisiun is free admission. Don't rush in and fly out again. The fire will be lit, the pint perfect and things will happen in their own good time. The no-smoking ban is absoute nation-wide so the atmosphere is clear and melodic! Enjoy and if you find me there remember... mine's a pint of the black stuff.
