Great staff, very accommodating, helpful friendly. We went as a group and had a ball. The food is delicious and plentif. Other guests had no problem with us singing and the musicians we brought along. We have also been there for lunch on several occasions and the food is superb.

a very nice little restaurant to stop by, very cosy, beautiful and clean. The food is also excellent and the prices are affordable. I loved it and will come back here as soon as I come back to Ireland!

Stopped by for a delicious lunch an Lydon's on a Monday afternoon. Very friendly and efficient service, good food and a pleasant atmosphere. All the food is mad on-premises - great desserts. Cong is a lovely little town, and Lydon's is a great place to take a break and enjoy the scenery.

Adequate breakfast during our stay but the selection and quality of the evening meals was outstanding. Bar snacks or main menu was mouthwatering, excellent choice and all local produce served daily. Drinks and traditional music in the Bar rounded off a perfect Autumn Break!

A nice place for an evening of music and food. The pubs in town take turns hosting a session, so which ever one you go to, will be good.

We came to the Lydon's by chance (we're staying in Cong and that was the first place with lights on that we encounter) and we we're pleasantly surprised to find great (!!) food! Highly recommend for those of you who find themselves in Cong..

We had a great dinner and great Guiness served by really nice folks. I just don't understand, as an American, why in the world they'd have Budweiser on tap in Ireland, but you'll find it in pretty much every pub there because supposedly the younger folks like it...heck, I don't even drink it in America.

On entering the restaurent a sign posted on the wall said there would be live music, but the waitress said it was cancelled and no one had bothered to removed the sign.
