My wife and I had dinner at Mitchells and I can honestly say it was the best dinner out we have ever had. The food and service was second to none and the atmosphere at the restaurant was warm and very relaxing and romantic. The prices were also very reasonable given the high quality of the food and service. I... More

This place had wonderful seafood chowder. They also had some of the best brown bread I've tasted in Ireland. We really enjoyed or fishcakes. The atmosphere was very nice, with a cozy fireplace and great service.

If in Clifden be sure to sample the delights Mitchell's have to offer. Fresh local produce,especially the wonderful seafood, is cooked well and the menu is well balanced and creative. All served promptly by friendly and knowledgable staff. Equally good for lunch or dinner. Be sure to book and enjoy.
