As a restaurant the Bards Den serves a good hearty meal with an emphasis on not leaving you short, I had the mussels with cabbage and bacon, which at €18 was not budget, but if you know I advance how much they serve up, this dish would easily serve 2 as it comes with chips and bread. So works out as great value, even better still is that it really was very good, better than many a posh restaurant I have eaten in. Well seasoned with a lovely broth. Chips were great as was the rustic bread. All washed down with a well poured pint of the "black stuff" the surroundings were basic and casual as you would expect from a hostel. The staff were very friendly which is par for the course in Connemara. So for a good feed it's highly recommended. They seem to stop serving at 9pm.
