Excellent seafood chowder, fish and chips and Guinness! Live music and wood stove were a great addition. Don’t pass this up when in Spiddal!

Fabulous dinner, great local "Aran Island Goat Cheese" appetizer, great local pint selection, friendly service, and we even caught a local musician "trad" jam session as well. If you're lucky enough to pass through Spiddal, make sure to stop at Tigh Giblin.
