“Nice pub food.”

Nice pub atmosphere. Good beer and pub food. I add the stew and the chowder. Very large portions. Price is typical pub. Waitresses were very nice and the service was efficient.

“Great chillaxin pub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

My girlfriend and I drove the Connemara loop from Ashford Castle and couldn't help but stop in Clifden to explore all the shops and pubs. This pub fit the bill for what we were looking for on our vacation, a place to sit outside, watch people, and enjoy a pint (local jargon). Highly recommend the visit here. If you don't like to shop, this is place to chill while the other one shops. Fortunately for me my girlfriend is not a big shopper but we both enjoyed walking around this town.

“Great place to watch people and sit outside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

We came here several times during our week stay at Clifden. Great seafood chowder and mussels. We were here during a week of warm sunny weather so we sat outside with our drinks on picnic tables and watched the world go by. Very relaxing.
