I was delighted with the service, quality of the menu and reasonable price range offered to myself and a group of friends when we dined in the Marconi Restaurant in Clifden. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very friendly and the overall decor was welcoming and warm. I will definitely be back.

We stopped off in Clifden after a few days at the Galway Races, we booked in advance. It all started well, the starter came out, then our main too absolutely ages (no we didn't order a steak) as our waitress was so focussed on two couples who were sitting at separate tables by the window and basically ignored us, I...

Dined on the early bird menu which is great value with good choices. Classy feel to the place. Service was very attentive as there was no waiting around between courses, really nice complementary breads to start too! All in all very good and I would stick to early bird for the value of it. Kids menu with good options, waitress... More

My husband and I celebrated our 9-year anniversary at Marconi's and had a wonderful time! We didn't have a reservation and when we walked in we were greeted warmly by one of the staff members. He found a table that was available for us two hours. The food and wine were amazing, the staff incredibly warm and friendly and the... More

We really enjoyed the food and service. The mushroom starter and rack of lamb were delicious although the gluten free jus served on one of the rack of lambs was not great. The Thai chicken starter I had was also good and a friend said the monk fish main course was good also. Lovely staff who were extremely helpful.

The staff at Mitchells recommended Marconi and we were not dissappointed. We hadHake and rack of lamb both of which were great. We started with duck confit spring rolls which we would recommend.

This restaurant is in the Foyles Hotel. Like the hotel, it is beautifully decorated. It has a lot of interesting Marconi memorabilia. It is a nice restaurant with good food and service. A step up from our normal pub fare in Ireland.

In the Foyle Hotel, Marconi's is classy and the food, delicious! Great service, but be sure to get a reservation. We ate here three times during our six day stay in Clifden, it was that good! Salmon, seafood chowder, butternut squash...I could go on and on about the food! A must visit, and we will definitely return!

A fantastic restaurant where service, quality of food and professionalism can be taken for granted. Eating with six others the experience of all received the same commendation and praise. I would recommend that Marconi's be on your list of eating houses if you are visiting the West of Ireland make sure you take time out to visit this quality 'eating-house'!
