This place was recommended to us by our concierge at the Clifden Station House and we left happy, full, and beyond impressed at the state of Irish food. I also sampled some of the locally brewed beers and loved them. To put it in annoying American terms, this is a home run of a restaurant.

When we visited Clifden, mist pubs didn't feature live music but Mannion's has music every night at 7pm. The food was delicious; we had Irish stew and lamb shanks - large serves too!

A Thursday night in March - the best Irish stew ever accompanied by some great music by two local gents. My hubby had the beef & Guinness stew and both our meals were melt in your mouth. The service was excellent and the music was great! We would highly recommend Mannions

Stopped in for a late lunch on our drive around Connemara. Unfortunately their taps were down for servicing but they had a number of smaller local brews on offer. Food was straight forward and tasty. I had the open face smoked salmon sandwich and was pleased with how generous the portions were. Service was friendly and the atmosphere was cozy... More

We stopped in for a light dinner and a cup of tea by a turf fire. I never trust an Irish pub that has "Irish tacos" but it was very good. The wait staff and decor is as it should be. 100% Irish Don't pass this one by William & Colleen New York
