Description: Veldons Seafarer Bar and Restaurant is located in Letterfrack village at one of the main crossroads in Connemara – the heart of Connemara! We are located along the Wild Atlantic Way where the landscape is shaped by the sea and the local characters are full of creativity and chat. The bar has been a hub of activity for many years with Veldons Bar also being main grocers in the area. The old shop is now our great new restaurant. We aim to offer a friendly welcoming atmosphere where locals and visitors can enjoy a visit. Great food is served all day in the bar and we also have a separate restaurant. We are perfectly located for a quick coffee and sandwich before you carry on with your journey, a hearty steak after you have conquered Diamond Hill, or make a weekend of it and enjoy the ambiance of our restaurant followed by a pint in the bar! There is always a smiling face and a warm welcome in Veldons Seafarer.

If you like seafood you must stop here. Weather was beautiful sitting outside with good food and drink. Fantastic fresh local oysters the best I have had in years. Delicious mussels from Killary Harbour and craft ale also sourced locally from Clifden. Staff were very pleasant all in all a very enjoyable lunch.

Landed in at Veldon's Seafarer after a long day touring and was super pleasantly surprised. The menu was simple, but the seafood was fantastic. Everything was very fresh and tasty and the service spot on. Would highly recommend it.

Nice local bar and restaurant. Food is of a very high standard and reasonably priced. The service is top class as well. It was busy all weekend for a reason. Highly recommend.

Went to a pub for lunch just to discover they only serve dinner. They sent us to Veldon's and it was a great mistake.

The mussels are fresh from the sea and done in a garlic sauce, not to heavy. Not as sweet as French mussels but steamed to perfection. The fish and chips were also good and the service was friendly.
