About Us…

Pats on the square started as Pats Pizza 30 years ago in 1984

It was opened by Pat Bradley and Mary Keeney, they met in Dublin, where Pat is a native and Mary was studying at The Dublin College of Catering, Cathal Brugha Street, which she absolutely loved.

From an early age Mary knew that she wanted to run her own restaurant. Pat had moved to Galway with his family where they ran a bar, grocery and restaurant. Pat and Mary wanted to get married, Pat did not want to go back to Dublin and Mary said no to Galway, so the compromise was Letterkenny in beautiful Donegal, Mary’s home. They lived and worked there happily ever since. Adam their son works with them in the business and Belle their daughter studies in Trinity College in Dublin.

Pats has evolved over the years, the original Pats Pizza moved to the Main Street in 1990 and has been thriving ever since

We celebrated 30 years in business in 2014 and received various mentions in the press over the that year. Mary and Pat won joint Business Person of the Year at the recent Letterkenny Chamber awards in November 2014.

PAT’S PIZZA Letterkenny

Pat’s Pizza in Letterkenny has been around since since 1984 and has a very loyal customer base.

The “Pat” in the name is Pat Bradley, who runs the business, and another restaurant, Pat’s on the Square, with his wife Mary.

Alex O’Donnell has been in Australia for the past year and a half and has eaten pizza in many different places there – “and not one of them comes close to Pat’s”.  “They have a lovely doughy base, they pile the toppings high, and although I’ve been eating there for 20 years I’m never disappointed,” says Edna Keeney.

“Every Friday my family and I would have a pizza night while watching Top of the Pops. I still get excited getting a Pat’s Pizza years later – I am now 22 ,” says Zara Vambeck.


We are also really proud of our feature in our local newspaper Donegal News which published an article on our 30 years in business.
