On a cool, damp, November day, the tourists could be found in the many shops, bars and restaurants in Clifden and this restaurant offered comfort, good service and excellent food at reasonable prices. I would recommend it.

Good restaurant. Right off the square as the name implies. The food was great and so was the staff. Atmosphere was cozy.
