Orla and Andy Donaghy established the bar that carries their name in 1994 following ten years working in the U.S. hospitality industry.
Six years later they opened Coach Lane, their award winning restaurant and rapidly built a reputation for superb and innovative cuisine. Andy’s philosophy when it comes to cooking is simple “source as much produce as possible locally without compromising on quality”. Preparation is key to the restaurants continued success and is reflected in the presentation. An eclectic a la carte menu awaits you on arrival at Coach Lane where less familiar fish dishes such as "Line Caught Halibut" are juxtaposed with "Milk fed Irish Veal", whilst signature entrees like steak and chips remain customer favourites.
Wines are carefully selected to compliment the wonderfully prepared dishes while informative and polite staff are always on hand with helpful advise if required.
First time visitors can be sure of a memorable dining experience in one of Irelands leading restaurants as Coach Lane continues to set the standard.

Had an enjoyable family meal on sunday night. Overall it was a good experience, the staff were v good. I still think it is a little on the pricey side but most everyone at our table thought their food was v good. There was a starter special of black pudding tartlet with scallops which I thought didn't work all that great, interesting idea, but for me poor choice. The chowders were v good though as was the stuffed Portebello mushrooms.

Had dinner here 3 weeks ago. Was pretty busy but still managed to get a quiet corner upstairs, and had a really attentive waiter. They serve you a warm mini loaf while you browse the menu. Beware, its the most delicious bread ever. I had looked at the menu as per menu pages, and its important to note that it HAS changed, with new dishes added and and some omitted. Was looking forward to the surf n turf - this was removed. Im not sure why this is. For starter i had rolled duck breast in tomato sauce with canellini beans, unfortunately it wasnt so good; meat was somewhat flavourless and fatty. For mains, the seafood St Jacques was a winner. Super fresh fish in a yummy sauce, creamy and with mushrooms. Partner had seafood platter - again very tasty and lots of it! Both really struggled to finish it. Overall - the great wine, lovely atmosphere, with charming pub downstairs for pre or after dinner drinks made it a really enjoyable night. Definitely recommend it and will be back.

Enjoyed a wonderful meal here with a group of friends. Everything tasted wonderful and the portions were huge. Unfortunately the service was not the best. I asked the waitress for a Sauvignon Blanc and was brought a glass of red wine and she didn’t seems to know the difference between the starters and main courses. It was amusing but not ideal.

Just had a lovely meal in the Coach Lane Restaurant@Donaghy's Bar. I had heard alot of good things about this restaurant and was really looking forward to eating here, I was not disappointed. The staff were fantastic could'nt do enough for us, the food was delicious i highly reccomend the lobster and i found it to be quite reasonably priced. Next time i return to Sligo i will also be returning to the Coach Lanr Restaurant.

Love this restaurant. Atmosphere great, food fantastic. A little bit pricey tho especially in the times were in! We eat out alot but we even would have to make this the "special occasion" restaurant cos its just sooo expensive.
