The Laurentic Bar is based in the beautiful scenary of Linsfort, Buncrana, Co. Donegal. The bar labeled "The Ship" by the locals, is named after the 1909 "SS Laurentic", a British ocean liner of the White Star Line. The ship stopped in Lough Swilly during its Liverpool to Canada route in January 1924. Unfortunately the ship hit a mine and sunk. Still to this day 22 gold bars of its bullion cargo remain unclaimed. Many divers from all over the world have dived the wreckage but the bars remain unaccounted for. 

However the locals claim they found a gold BAR when The Ship offically opened.

Come join us in our relaxed atmosphere, with a roaring fire, wide range of drafts, bottled beers and spirits. We promise a good nights craic!
