“Mussels and Music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

When our family arrived in Clifden late evening on day 7 of our trip (Friday), my son was beginning to have withdrawals from having not eaten a hamburger for almost a week. The night clerk at the hotel recommended Mannion's as a place that serves burgers. Wife and daughter were not interested, and went to eat seafood at Mitchell's, while son and I journeyed to Mannion's, and I am so glad we did. Son got his burger, and I had the special of the day, what seemed like 5 pounds of fresh steamed mussels (not a dead one in the bunch) with a side of brown bread and butter. Plus a few pints of Guinness. Plus traditional Irish music! (Live traditional music plays on Friday and Saturday nights.) It was win – win – win for everybody.

“Mannions' Irish Dancing treat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Saturday afternoon in Mannions' and the staff couldn't be more helpful. We wanted to watch a rugby match and they quickly changed channels to facilitate our request. Service was quick and efficient and competively priced. Great entertainment that night with 2 Irish dancers 'live' inside the front door. Great facilities and good value.

“A great lunch experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

Excellent food and service, and we really enjoyed talking to our server "Ronan". Thanks from "Ohio, USA "! Special borders were no problem, soups were terrific and hamburger was as good as any as I would make at home.
