One of our party ordered Hake which smelt really rank. The Waitress was not at all interested when this was pointed out and no offer of a refund. The other two had duck which was overcooked and not a great sauce either. Would not recommend.

Recommended by Paddy and Julie at Quay House. Fabulous food and nice atmosphere. The rack of lamb was superb. Excellent value for money.

We have eaten rack of lamb in some very high end restaurants in major cities, but here it was the best we’ve ever had. The portion was generous, as were the sides of vegetables. Although we ate here on a very busy night when there were several large, noisy parties, the service was very good, friendly, and accommodating. For our... More

We were in Clifden for our fourth wedding anniversary. We went to Marconi because we had our rehearsal dinner there four years ago and it was fabulous. I have not been back to Ireland in two years. We did not have reservations because we decided at last minute where we wanted to go. We were not dressed gor dinner because... More

We had our evening meal here at 6:00 pm on the 25th and although we had not booked, the staff were able to get us a table. The food was excellent and the service was prompt and efficient.

My wife and I have dinner at Marconi's each time we visit Clifden. Food is fantastic and great atmosphere. Wonderful wine selection and a beautiful dinner near the fireplace. Staff is friendly and hospitable. An absolutely fine dining experience.

Well located in the Main Street and with a warm welcome. Good food, I had the rack of local lamb which was excellent. They know how to keep and serve Guiness which is not true of all restaurants. Decent value for money.

You know you are in for an enjoyable experience the moment you step inside the door of Marconi's. The welcome was very friendly and service throughout was excellent. We both had the rack of lamb which was delicious. The only hiccup was having to send mine back to be cooked a bit longer because it was raw, but the staff... More

Don't miss out on this restaurant when in Clifden. The food is great and the service is excellent and so friendly too. I always have the same starter from year to year-the mussels in a Thai broth-it never disappoints. I vary the mains and am always happy. The desserts too are great. The only negative is that my Dad doesn't... More
