Harry’s Shack

A Shack, right on the beach, serving fresh local fish, meats, vegetables and more. That was Donal Doherty’s dream and now it’s come true. The location couldn’t be more perfect. It’s literally on the beach at Portstewart Strand on the stunning North Coast. The place itself was a National Trust Information Centre back in the day.

Harry’s Shack is actually the brother of another Harry’s in Donegal. Ex-airline pilot Donal first took over his family’s restaurant, Harry’s at Bridgend before opening up the Shack last August.

They do coffee, brunch, lunch and dinner at this uber-hip joint beloved of food critic Jay Rayner and more. We’re talking prawns fresh off the boat, spiced whitebait and traditional fish and chips. There’s plenty of green stuff on the menus too. They have their own walled garden full of seasonal goodies. Jay Rayner also raved about Pastry Chef Monto’s Crème Caramel.

This place is a big hit, so book!
