Had lunch there today. I had a duo of crab and smoked salmon. It comes with bread, butter and a small salad. It tasted gorgeous. I also liked the craft beer from Clifden (Bridewell) that they have on tap.

After a long walk at Connemara National Park, we picked Veldon's for lunch. The seafood chowder was terrific. Our waitress was very friendly but she wasn't around much. The other food was so-so. Perhaps it was an off day.

Thank you Tim. Our mussels are grown just down the road in the clear waters of Killary Fjord so you can't get much fresher than that! Hope fully we will see you again soon.

Description
Veldons Seafarer Bar and Restaurant is located in Letterfrack village at one of the main crossroads in Connemara – the heart of Connemara! We are located along the Wild Atlantic Way where the landscape is shaped by the sea and the local characters are full of creativity and chat.

The bar has been a hub of activity for many years with Veldons Bar also being main grocers in the area. The old shop is now our great new restaurant.

We aim to offer a friendly welcoming atmosphere where locals and visitors can enjoy a visit.

Great food is served all day in the bar and we also have a separate restaurant. We are perfectly located for a quick coffee and sandwich before you carry on with your journey, a hearty steak after you have conquered Diamond Hill, or make a weekend of it and enjoy the ambiance of our restaurant followed by a pint in the bar!

There is always a smiling face and a warm welcome in Veldons Seafarer.
