We went to CIaran's resturant in Palolem Goa and it was our favourite place to eat although there are many good resturants in Palolem beach. The food is amazing especially the Tandori fish in fact all the fish is really good. The staff are so obliging and helpful and are really attentive. I would really recommend eating here when in...

Ciaran's was everything we asked for and more. The service was impeccable, food was delicious and the gracious staff are really fun to meet and get to know. NO complaints at all. If you're looking to relax in luxury, come here!

My wife and I have just returned from a trip to Goa. We spent the first week in crazy Candolim. After that we were looking forward to 5 day break in Palolem. As an retired travel agent of 30 years I wanted some nice accommodation. Palolem being famous for a “beach hut” resort we were a bit dubious about what...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights last week and were quite disappointed to be honest. When we booked our stay there was only one room left to book and clearly it was the worst one. It (ironically) was named Kushi. Most of the rooms are cottages/shacks but we were given a room in a small building, which...

My name is Marvin and I would like to bring to notice to fellow travellers about some points in this review which are irrelevant.as we feel that customers should know that our acco are not over priced after they know what is incl in it compared to any other acco on the beach.

Been there a couple of times. It never disappoints. The sea view room near the kitchen is noisy , but rest any of the 16 rooms are fine. Also if it is full, try art house .. But Palolem is my favourite beach and Ciarans is my first choice

With Tripadvisor having great reviews for this place, I felt it was indeed one of those gems that would make it a perfect vacation. However, Ciaran's has been a big letdown on several aspects. BOOKING: I am not sure who handles the email replies which come from a "John Coutinho", as I normally noticed only "Marvin" at the reception most...

It was clean, location was excellent and wifi was free throughout the meal. However food was overpriced for the quality, chicken and prawns over cooked and not the tastiest tandoori around. Service was ok, we had to ask twice for our salad to arrive and the boss had to call one of his staff to our table. There are better...

Ciaran's was such a pleasure to stay in on the beach in beautiful Palolem. The luxury huts, two lovely restaurants and staff made our stay a very pleasant one! Marvin the manager couldn't have been nicer, the accommodation was lovely, and the tapas bar cafe and their main restaurant overlooking the sea was great. Would definitely recommend Ciarans as a...
