Really busy in town during our stay but still the food, service and friendliness in Walsh's was brilliant as it has been when we have been there on previous visits to Clifden also.

We ordered soup of the day and chicken and mushroom pie, both of which was nice and good value, the pie arrived with a nice salad, generally there was a good selection of hot/cold food.

I go to Walsh's every time I am in clifden and I have to say the standards are slipping They have the nicest sweet treats imaginable hands down but their savoury food is a little dissappointing. My sister ordered a tuna wrap and it was 5.75. It had no side salad or crisps with it and I would expect that.... More

We were delighted to come across this gorgeous bakery in Clifden. Not only do they serve delicious home made cakes/pastries, they also do a really good breakfast where you sit at the window and enjoy the view. They have a great selection of good tasty wholesome food which i will definitely be back to try!

I probably would have given the place only 3 stars had it not been for the delicious scones!

Excellent friendly efficient local bakery with sandwiches and cakes to eat in and take away. Every decent tourist town has a focal cafe which delivers good quality quick food at a reasonable price, and this is the one for Clifden.

What a wonderful family run bakery! Everything is fresh everyday and such a treat to go to when we are down on holidays. Lovely view of the bay at the back of the restaurant. Staff extremely helpful and friendly

Stopped off here for lunch while passing through Clifden. Ordered two coffees & sandwich special. Coffee was fine but pesto sandwich was poor, it was very dry & came without crisps, which were meant to come with it. Overall we were unimpressed!

Great little cafe for breakfast / brunch or a snack. The cakes and bread are really good. Try their donuts.
