The B&B proprietor suggested I visit Mitchell's but as soon as I said I was a solo diner, the available table suddenly disappeared. The Marconi was happy to oblige though and I felt welcomed, and was served by what seemed exclusively French staff during the evening. The food (seafood chowder, lamb shank with mashed potato and vegetables) was tasty but... More

This is not a pub, it is excellent dining. The food was excellent, from appetizer to sale, main course to dessert. All were very well presented, very perfectly prepared and tasted superb. Highly recommended by the locals. A romantic and adult experience.

I spent the last night with stomach ache and I still do not feel good at all thanks to this place. But let me tell everything. I planned the whole weekend in Clifden and before to leave I usually reserve tables on restaurant as I prefer to be free from the annoying walk around all the places, angry and with... More

Had a beautiful meal in Marconi's on September 5th. Food was beautiful, particularly my partners choice of the lamb main. There was a group dining in the restaurant so this left staff a little distracted. There was a 20 minute delay with dessert, which the girl did warn us there would be a delay with upon ordering. However after dessert... More

This restaurant was highly recommended to us. Unfortunately, it did not meet our expectations. We had booked for the first sitting of the evening. We arrived at 6.45pm. There were 3 people ahead of us waiting to be seated - they were brought to their seats immediately and we were left standing in the doorway for a few minutes before... More

There is not much bad things to be said about Marconi's. The service was very snappy. I ordered the stirloin steak medium rare and it was cooked perfectly👌. Their peppercorn suace was the cherry on the cake. If you have a sweet tooth I would highly recommend their chocolate lava cake. If your in Clifden you must eat here.

Thank Sean R
