We had a lovely meal lately in Mitchell's. Lovely chowder, duck and a scrumptious dessert. Important to book beforehand. The only fault we found is that the tables are fairly close together so you end up hearing your neighbours' conversation. Service was faultless but rather...More

We were staying near Doolin, but decided to do a roadtrip to Connemara for more incredible scenery. Had been to Clifden a few years ago and that became the destination for our dinner. Walked around town looking at restaurant menus and really liked the look...More

I had a lovely lunch here today. The calamari was probably the best I've ever had. I tried a new craft beer called Galway hooker. An Irish pale ale. It was delicious. If you're in the area this is a good place to stop and...More
