A warm, quite, cozy Christmasy atmosphere with all the Seasons favorite songs. The service very warm and friendly. Impressive cozy little bar with all the best brands was a special delight. The dinner was superb especially the catch of the day and the succulent Irish beef Sirloin Steak. Highly recommended. Enjoy 🍀💕

Called in for something light to eat waitress and chef very accommodating. Such a nice friendly and warm place to eat, staff could not do enough for you. Only fault I had was the background music was a bit outdated. Will definitely be back again.

Our family stopped in here for the night,....'Flooie' who was on the desk went above and beyond to make us feel right at home. After a long tiring day this was balm to the soul. The space was adequate and clean, ad the bed comfortable. We would definitely recommend this place and their service.

Passing through Foxford recently on our way back to Midland after a short break in Mayo and happened to call in to Mayfly for dinner, we were blown away with the quality, of the food and hospitality of staff. This is a gem and we will definitely be back to stay next time. Well done.

I spent my fishing week at the Mayfly. Its such a welcoming place from morning to night. Everyone wants to know what they can do for you. Nothing is too much trouble. Food in the bar is excellent. If only they could get me some fish I'd be in heaven!
