Great find! vegetarian friendly

My husband and I came across this restaurant while driving the Connemara. Lovely place, great service. Fresh, local food. Love to support locally sourced places! We had all vegetarian meals and they were flavorful and filling. Could not recommend more!

Great and wonderful food, oh my goodness! The outside seems quite unassuming and there were four in our party, with different tastes and desires for dinner. Everyone was thoroughly happy after such a fine meal, as everything was so fresh and very tastefully presented. A great place to spend an evening!

A number of our group headed for Derryclare on the saturday at different times of the day for Lunch. The service was great, really nice guy - owner or manager perhaps, great selection on the menu and the specials. We had mixture of mussels, Pizza, Pasta, Toasties and a nice few bottles of wine, all were exceptional - the pizzas... More

We had a family meal in this restaurant yesterday. We had a very disappointing experience and would recommend you find a different restaurant in Clifden. The food was mediocre, way over priced and we waited 45 minutes to get our meal. The water was warm, served in glasses just out of the dishwasher. Despite being for a long time, the... More

Beginning with the reception, the service was poor. No one was posted to greet diners and we had to wait for someone to show us to a table. We then had to wait for the waitress annd when she did not come, a manager or bar tender took our order. We had to wait an unacceptable amount of time for... More

My husband and I recently had dinner here on a stop in Clifden. I had the Seafood Chodwer for starter and Braised Beef Cheeks for main. The chowder was one of the most flavorful I had in our 2 weeks traveling around Ireland and the UK. It wasn't just a groggy paste of potatoes, cod, and salmon like most of... More

Hadn't been in since the management changed and very impressed with the changes made. Much calmer ambiance and no booming music and also the menu is much improved with a nice mix of crowd pleasers and more interesting things. We ate at the new bar counter which was very handy as they were fully booked, had the Fish & Chips... More

I recently visited clifden with a friend and we decided to have dinner at the Derryclare. Living in Galway, I am spoiled for choice when it comes to nice restaurants so I can be a little particular. However, the second the plate was brought to my table I knew we had selected the correct place in town because the standard... More

Hsd a wonderful focatttio bread sandwich with it. A variety of sandwiches are on the Menu but all made on the same... More

The food was cooked perfectly (first time I've had blue steak in Ireland), the wine was delicious and the service was good. It's a bit pricey but easily worth it
