When visiting Clifden in advance of the Connemara marathon it was the first place I had in mind for dinner. I called to the hotel early in the day to make a reservation and assured my wife and 3 young... More

Came across this nicely furnished restaurant in the middle of Clifden and it was very nice. We were staying at the Renvyle but a wedding party took over their dinining room(s) so we stopped in The Gallery and were pleased with the food, the service, etc.

Booked for a late meal (9.00pm) for an anniversary celebration. The place was pretty quiet when we were there with maybe three other groups of diners. There was a pair of musicians playing when we arrived, but almost immediately had finished their set - pity, as they sounded quite good. So the ambience was a little flat, but we were... More

We were here with a party of 3 adults and 6 children. We got a great table right in from of the musician which kept the children glued. The staff looked after the children first which meant we grown-ups could really relax after a the journey across. The kids menu was good with about 8 choices, and big potatoey chips.... More

Whilst on holiday in Galway, our family of four decided to head to Clifden for an evening meal after spending the day at Kylemore Abbey mid-week. The sun was shining and Clifden was bustling with activity around the square. After a quick browse on Tripadvisor, we decided to dine at the Gallery Restaurant at the Alcock & Brown Hotel. We...

I ate here as I was staying in the hotel with my friend. We enjoyed it so much the first night that we returned on the second. It is a big room but it is still cosy. We were informed by the staff that it had recently been redecorated, and it really is looking great. The food was amazing. The... More

We arrived at the restaurant well after the early bird special was finished ( had a bunch of children with us) however the hostess kindly made the menu available to us. The food and service were excellent, the waiter heated some baby food for us without any fuss. I would certainly go back and would recommend the restaurant; we also... More
