Foyle Hotel wins Bord Bia award
FOYLE Hotel, Moville
has been awarded the Bord Bia Just Ask Restaurant of
the Month for July. Selected by food writer Georgina
Campbell and Bord Bia, the Just Ask Restaurant of
the Month rewards establishments across Ireland that
exhibit best practices in showing transparency in
the sourcing of the food on their menus.
Brian McDermott and his wife Brenda recently
restored the historic Foyle Hotel in the scenic
coastal town of Moville to create a boutique hotel,
wine bar and informal dining destination.
Menus include plenty of crowd pleasers as well as
more sophisticated evening dishes but the difference
is the quality and local provenance of ingredients
which are cooked simply and carefully to allow the
true ‘Taste of Inishowen’ to be enjoyed.

Speaking about their
suppliers and producers, Brian McDermott said,
“Here, food is at the centre of everything we do.
Irish meats and poultry come from trusted suppliers
including William Doherty Butcher and Noone’s
Poultry of Clonmany. Doherty Roe Vegetables and
Whiteoaks Acorn Organic Farm near Muff supply us
with our fresh produce, while free range eggs are
supplied by Seamus McHugh. All our seafood is
locally landed, the majority of which is supplied by
John Byrne Seafoods and Greencastle Fisherman’s
