“Great atmosphere with live music!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Guys Bar & Snug was a great choice! I just ordered the leek and potato soup, but it was very delicious and my family members thoroughly enjoyed their food too! It was a perfect blend of bar and restaurant with live music, which we enjoyed very much! If I ever visit Clifden again, I will go to Guys!

“Best atmosphere in Clifden”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We loved this place! The atmosphere in here was perfect!
They have hit a great balance of a bar and a restaurant. The décor is homely.
It was busy the night we ate in there, so we ate at the bar. The seafood was excellent. All of the staff seemed friendly. The music was great, there was a folk band playing. everybody in the place seemed to be having a good time, eating, drinking and talking. Family friendly.
We had some drinks afterwards, the barman had an excellent knowledge of Irish whiskeys and was able to recommend one to our taste. We really enjoyed it.

“Eat and run”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The food is very very good but pricy if you don't take the dinner specials (prices on the menu outside weren't the same prices on the actual menu inside). Yo go there for the quality of the food, really it's very good. But the staff can be harassing at times : we've been asked about 5 times if we were ready to order by 4 different waiters, and they gave us the bill before we asked for it, when our drinks were half full. Even though there was a band playing, a very good one by the way, it seemed like we weren't totally invited to stay and enjoy our night there. So I recommend it for the very good food, but not for a long restaurant and live music evening.

“Busy and very popular”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

A good place for pub food of the sea food variety... Not very big portions though. The music was good and the beer flowing. Service was ok but then they were stretched.

“Perfect place”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Great food and good value! Wish we had eaten our meal here instead of where we chose! However we returned for dessert which more than made up for our previous disaster - then came back the next day!! Result
