Amazing seafood!

We had dinner here after the Tour de Connemara cycle and it was a memorable experience. We had the early bird menu but there was very little difference between it and the Al La Carte. The sea bass was fab with beautiful avocado salsa served with new potatoes and veg. The chef is to be complimented... read more

The restuarant is part of foyles and the restaurant is nicely laid out. A great atmosphere awaits you and your party. There is an excellent menu and keenly priced wine list. Food is good and staff are friendly and helpful.

The place (and waitress) made it seem more French and Irish. Nice place, good selection of drinks and food. Sophisticated place with premium pricing.

We had the earlybird menu - need to be seated before 6.45pm. An excellent meal - and delightful French waitress. Highly recommend Marconi's.

My friend and I staying in a local hotel were recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed! Traditional decor and a cosy room greeted us. The staff quickly greeted seated us and took our order promptly. I love the special touches such as a large candle and pretty fresh flowers on the table. While we waited for our food to... More

At the moment it's still winter season so is only open three days over the weekend so you do need to book as it gets very busy! Comfortable seating, staff very attentive and courteous. We... More
