“Bad attitiude from staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Had reason to complain about a glass of wine - the reaction of the barman was to say I was mistaken and then turn his back and walk away while I was talking to him. Very disappointed. Seemed like a nice place and had planned to stay for another few rounds but couldn't stay after being treated so rudely. Pity.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We wandered in after a day or driving around Co Galway. We met some visitors from another part of Ireland and one of the bar regulars Paddy Mac. Thank you for your help over and above Paddy! We owe you some beer!

“Best pub in Clifden.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Great old school pub in Clifden. A sports bar in the rear which gets loud and fun by midnight with a regular DJ, but in the evening up to closing time the front bar is fantastic. Tourists will scratch their heads at the state of the bathroom facilities but you dont come here for the toilets, you come for the stout and a seat by the fire!
