I'm afraid our experience at the Ardagh Hotel was endemic of The Clifden experience where attention to detail and overall friendliness is in short supply. It appear - Post Brexit - the British, moreover the English are persona non grata.

We enjoyed our dinner with a view. The food and service were excellent. Our appetizers were crab meat with avocado and grapefruit which tasted very fresh. The lamb was also very tasty.

Relaxed family run restaurant and hotel with breathtaking sea view sunsets, fine locally sourced seafood(many local meat options also), home grown vegetables, herbs and salads. Open turf fire places in the restaurant make even the coolest of days enjoyable and the large open turf fire in the bar is ideal for having pre dinner and after dinner drinks beside. The sun terrace overlooking the bay is a must for pre dinner drinks on summer days. Taxi service available please enquire when reserving for dinner.
