I've always liked Vaughans. The only thing I've ever eaten there is the open crab sandwich. Honestly, I've never had better hence its the only thing I order when I go there! You won't be disappointed. Good pint of Guinness to be had also.

Of particular note is the fact that the bar area has not been redecorated for 30 odd years. A proper west of Ireland pub. I hope they keep it that way.

Vaughans is well run by effiient, friendly staff. My husband had hake, a white fish similar to cod and said it was very good. I had a bowl of potato-leek soup that was very tasty and smooth and served with hearty whole grain bread that I'm finding is common in Ireland. Good food at good prices.

My family and I decided to have bar food in the Roundstone Hotel and boy what an awful dining experience it was and I can safely say the worst dining experience I have ever experienced. On arrival the waitress took our order and was very unfriendly, like a mute robot. I asked her could she recommend the steak and she didn't answer just sort of gave a slight nod of her head. She took the order with little communication, bizarre!! The younger bar man delivered our drinks so fast he almost dropped them on our laps with little eye contact or communication. In fact he was going around the bar and food area so fast, it looked like he was in training for the next Olympics. My mother mentioned that he put her off her meal and stay there long enough she would have bad indigestion watching him. We noticed that all of the staff looked somewhat stressed and not one smiled the whole time we were there. My mother and I ordered the Caesar salad which was over dressed to the point it left the lettuce really wet. My husband got the steak which was bland and tasteless along with one scoop of mash potato and a small portion of roasted vegetables. He was not impressed, when I asked the waitress for some more mash potato she returned to tell me there was none left. I found this unbelievable given it was only 6.30pm. What a joke!! My sister and my daughter ordered the fish goujons. The fish was tasteless and the bread crumbs were seriously deep fried. My nephew ordered the burger which came served with no burger bap just smothered in sauce. The bill came to 91 euros which I felt the meal nor the service didn't deserve half this amount. We ate in Ryans on two occasions which is a coffee shop come eatery in the evening and was a lot cheaper and the food and service was better by far. We also ate in O Dowds Restaurant which was exceptional both friendly service and the food was first class!! We also ate in Guys bar/restaurant in Clifden which was first class. Roundstone Hotel take a leaf out of any of these other restaurants books .Avoid this place at all costs it will ruin your evening!!

Ate seafood chowder for lunch everyday while travelling up the west coast of Ireland. Vaugh's was disappointing to say the least (had been highly recommended). Overpoweringly creamy, too rich, could not finish. Good mix of seafood though. Other options may be better in Roundstone. (Avoid Sun Cafe - word on the street there!)
