I recently visited this restaurant on my trip to Ireland. I ordered the crab claws and they were delicious. The portion for the price was really good value. It's right on the water and the views outside are extremely beautiful. I highly recommend this place.

The Pier Bar, in the heart of Connemara,Cleggan, located right on the pier that acts as the port to Inis Bofin. We are a family run business with the desire to serve GREAT FOOD and all kinds of drink, local and craft beers, Favourites, wines, minerals, juices and even the odd cocktail special! But most importantly to have a really wonderful time, weather that be relaxing in the sun in our patio area, listening to Traditional Irish Music live in the bar or mingling with the locals to get a true experience of a real Irish Pub.
