A very well-run establishment despite the crowd and popularity. Guys serve very good pours and food. Even though the place is busy, the tables are very well spaced out. There is also live Irish music but it is not too loud. We can still hold proper conversation comfortably. The food is so good that we had to go back to... More

This bar and restaurant is a great value. It has a very nice bar with an extensive selection. It offered good basic meals in a very inviting, space. The staff was very friendly and we felt most welcomed. While my wife and I were here with another couple, there were lots of families here the night we ate.

We dined here last Sunday afternoon and were impressed by the service, food and atmosphere in this quaint Bistro style Restaurant/Bar. The menu was varied and very good value - the Smoked Salmon Salad was delicious. Both the Thai Red Curry and Cajun Chicken Pizza lived up to expectations also. Service was prompt and attentive and hopefully we will return.

This place is so so lovely inside. Very comfortable to relax in and have a good meal and a pint. Casual live music playing that was so nice. Friendly service. Nice menu. All in all a good experience.

We decided to eat at Guys after a late arrival to clifden. Our son spotted the pizza menu so the choice was made. Great selection on the menu, we had seafood, stew and pizza and it was all delicious! Portions were very generous, staff were fantastic and the service was spot on. Sticky toffee pudding was to die for!!! Can't... More

Late lunch menu selection was average. The soup was tasty, but not anything more than other local restaurants. Clean restrooms. Server was friendly and welcoming.

Have been many times and never disappointed. Service is good and friendly. Good selection of beers. Serving staff efficient and, more importantly, knowledgable. You can't book so need to turn up and place your name on list. If you leave and miss your call you drop down the list again. This is the only down side as the bar tends... More
