Oh, was that perhaps you I saw there Sunday evening? Sitting with another chap next to the bar and downing the beers like mad? There were quite a few foreigners when I was there, some outside, some inside, the place was packed! I so wanted that Anchor Steam, but I can't afford to pay that much for beer. I had to settle for a couple bottles of Corona.

Uh, sorry to hijack Donovan's thread with a plug for Eddy's.


If that other chap was a devastatingly handsome man with a toddler in his lap, then yes, that was sandman, although I don't think we spent much time at the bar, and I don't remember us downing beers like mad.

We'll have to get over to Donavan's soon. Sounds great.
Come on baby, you know you my home slice.

Oh, no then, wasn't you two, no toddlers with these two gents, just beer. :)

Stopped by today, the place is really nice and cozy, the coffee were excellent, The Guiness stew was something that reminded me of home cooking. Didn't get the chance to sit on their balcony but even from inside the view was quite spectacular. The Owner Tim and his wife were absolutely friendly and sincere. We ll be back !

Is the shop still closed on Tuesday? I have a meeting in the area that day and would like to go to Donovan's.

Also, the website is down at the moment.

I've had a taste for Irish coffee lately. I've tried it at Friday's and at Chili's, but for quality and especially price, you can't beat Donovan's. I love to sit outside on the balcony.

I went there the other day and tried something off of there new menu. My wife had the shepard's pie and I had the spicy sausage meal with mashed potatoes and salad. Both meals were great and its always nice to wash down a meal with a pint of cold guiness and good conversation with good people. I love goin there to visit and Tim and Crystal Donovan are fantastic hosts and anyone in the Danshui area should totally check this place out at least once. Yes, They are still closed on tuesdays to answer one of the last posts.

Was there this evening ...great views, decent grub, very cheap beer ... and it's dog friendly too. It's a shame I live in Xindian.

Donovan's Irish coffee is the real deal and his food ain't bad either. Now one day somebody can help him out with his website and map :) .
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
