A recent addition to the Clifden food scene Macdara's Bar & Restaurant is a small establishment looking over Clifden bay. Two vastly experienced chefs, coming together to help open a restaurant with the intentions of using locally sourced produce from locally grown vegetables, farmers, fish mongers and more. With our small team, we want our costumers to feel welcome and comfortable.
