“Superb restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

An excellent pub/restaurant with a seafood oriented menu. The lobster platter at €29 was enormous, fresh and delicious. The hamburger at €13 was enormous and very tender. It goes without saying that when in Clonakilty you have to try the pudding - and the terrine of black and white pudding served with a creamy sweet (sun-dried?) tomato sauce was one of the best I have ever had. With only Guinness, Murphys and Heineken on tap the bar selection could be improved. Pleasant service but some of the bar stool seating is a little tough for a full meal. It is advisable to book to get a real table.

Visiting beautiful West Cork, we chanced on An Sugan and its Taster Plate....we were charmed!!
It was tasty, characterful and allowed us to try the various local specialities from the Clonakility Black pudding Terrine to delicious smoked salmon. In fact it was sort of W.Cork tapas...but substantial tapas, and it made a great lunch. This is an excellent establishment. We loved our warm welcome, the efficient and amusing bar man who brought us the paper, and the pub atmosphere was just tremendous. Well done. This is what we had hoped to find, and we were not disappointed. We will certainly be recommending you. A bonus was the excellent wine list. We enjoyed our well priced NZ Sauvignon.

The rooms are exactly as they look on the website and ridiculously cheap, which is refreshing!! They were finished to a high standard. A lot of money has clearly been spent on the modern, comfortable finishings. The artwork throughout the house was beautiful and the sitting room was comfortable with some great books to be perused at leisure. The breakfast was superb and cooked to order. I was in the area for work and didn't have much time to fully relax and enjoy the surroundings. I can't wait to get back to Clonakilty and when I do, I will most definitely be staying at An Sugan!

Room Tip: I stayed in room 1 which is featured on the website.

We stayed for weekend at start of Feb on the winter special offer which was great value. When we arrived staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was beautiful, stylish design and very comfy bed. Bathroom was clean and modern although I would have liked a bath as well as shower for that extra bit of luxury but the shower was hot and powerful so I survived! Location was central and near lots of good restaurants as well as the delicious an sugan restaurant itself. Will be back again if going to Clon again :)

This is a very well known and liked west cork restaurant and bar. Specialising in sea food but with good all round menu. The home made chicken gougans are delcious, and really cosy eating in front of the fire. Reasonably priced and good for families as well, call in if you are in Clonakilty shopping or passing through.
