We went to Guys especially to enjoy their traditional fish and chips and we were not disappointed. The batter was light and the fish was tasty. There was live music but we were a long way away from it and could not hear it very well. This is a popular place and we could not get a table the first... More

We have dined there several times and always had very good food. The place is clean, the staff are very attentive and courteous and it doesn't cost the earth. It is a regular on our list of places to dine when in Clifden.

It is a nice little restaurant with lovely little snugs, friendly service, and reasonable prices. My wife's fish and chips was very good while my Guinness Beef Stew was just so-so. The beef was not very tender so either it was a lower grade of Beef or not cooked long enough. But I had had better on the trip. So... More

Went in here as the special on the board drew me in but when I went in, this special wasnt available so I went for a seafood dish which was only ok. Not the nicest. Overall I was disapointed with all the meals I had while in Cliften

During visit to Clifden we decided to have an evening meal at Guys. I had lightly battered hake and I have to say it was the most beautiful fish I have had in a long time. Very friendly staff and popular place. You need to go early in the evening as it gets busy very quickly.

We stopped by for a quick lunch upon our arrival in Clifden. The Guinness and beef stew was delicious and satisfying. We will return during our stay in Clifden.

Came here after a very average meal the night before and seen it was number 1 on Trip Advisor, thought I was in for a real treat. I ordered the pizza and it was a very below average pizza, had to load it with salt and pepper for flavour and just wasnt great. The other person got Hake and again... More

We dropped in after driving through the Connemara Park. We were all starving and we were glad we found Guys Bar. We all ordered different things and everyone was really happy with their food except me. I ordered a special of the day Lamb Stew and it was just okay. It had great flavor, but the lamb was really tough.... More
