Very good food and good atmosphere. I had a great chicken wrap. Convenient location and fun to people watch. The service was great. It looks to be a lively place in the evening - I'll have to check that out next time!

You can't be in Clifden and not spend some time here. Fantastic music,while we were here, it was Arts week and such a great buzz. Plus the apple tart is scrumptious....yum!

A most enjoyable pub in the centre of Clifden where the staff are courteous and friendly while the pint of Guinness is a treat to behold.
