Service was good but the dishes we took (pasta with smoked Salmon & Pizza) were nothing special. We expected more given the tripadvisor reviews.

Having visited the Derryclare restaurant many times in the past during the early and mid noughties, my wife and I had always had the Derryclare as one of our favourite restaurants. On a recent visit to Galway with our two girls we decided we would take a spin our to Clifden to have a nice meal here and relive our... More

We went twice in 3 days so must be doing something right. Staff were great, especially "Mr Man", who had to cope with the incessant abuse our 3 year old daughter levelled at him. He was humourous and engaging and certainly added to our visit. Hopefully she brought a little entertainment to his day. Foodwise it was very good. Our... More

The staff fitted us in as last minute diners which was fantastic as it was quite late.It may have been because we were so late but what started as a really promising started, flatlined during the main course.

As usual tried to get in to top two restaurants but alas all full. This place was half full so gave it ago. My wife's salmon was excellent, my chicken a little dry but very tasty. Would not hesitate to dine here again. Great service and atmosphere. Deserves higher than 10th place.

Stopped in for dinner last week. Hadnt booked but were shown to a cosy table and made feel very welcome. Staff very friendly and attentive. Had arancini starter - consisted of goats cheese and sundried tomatoes. It was so delicious. Then braised beef cheeks - absolutely perfectly cooked. Really enjoyable dinner.

We had dinner here one night and found the prices somewhat steep for a mediocre restaurant, consisting of a main course and a glass of house wine E50 + for two people.

We had lunch and dinner at the Derry Clare on multiple occasions during our week in Clifden. The food and service were the best that we experienced. We recommend this restaurant to you without hesitation. Enjoy and say "Hello" to Martin and his friendly staff for us. Dan and Deborah Ernst
