Enjoyed a beautiful meal in this warm & cosy restaurant/bar with my husband. We both had fillet stake which was cooked to perfection.

Strange layout of the bar & restaurant, dining area reminds one of boarding school dining tables , dark & dreary & in need of a refurb. Food was marginally better than last time but getting a drink from the bar was impossible as I waited over 20 mins to be served but I was invisible and only "locals" were being... More

If one wants a change from the Ashford Castle, or something less formal or expensive, this would be a great alternative. It's in the castle grounds and in the lodge. Excellent food and service, nice ambience.

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.

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.
