This is a very cute old Irish pub that offers traditional Irish music I think every night of the week. We came in a bit late so only heard about a half hour of music, but the band was outstanding and the music traditional Irish. Little Irish girls were doing their version of trad'l Irish dancing up in front of the band. In Ireland most pubs do not offer food after 9 pm so do not come hungry! The Guinness was plentiful however. Very picturesque, very friendly crowd and awesome music. Right in downtown Clifden

Very straight forward establishment. During our visit, the place was absolutely packed both inside and on the back deck. The timing of the service was a bit slow but we were not in a hurry and the music and great beer made the time go unnoticed. The meals were exactly what we hoped for, delicious and filling.

We went to Conneely's several times to take in the musical guests each night. There were banjo players, fiddle players, guitarists, a gentleman playing a drum and the spoons! Wonderful, wonderful times here. The music was great and contagious! You just can't sit still! :)

We walked in from Abbeyglen & decided upon this one based on menu outside alone. 2 guys were playing trad music & the food was quite good. Waiter was awesome with local stories & advice for trip.

My daughter and I came here on the recommendation of the owner of the B&B where we were staying and we absolutely loved it. We were given a table right near the musicians, who were brilliant. There was a lovely atmosphere in the place, with everyone tapping their feet and some singing along. The food was excellent too and good value for money. A great find.
