After a full day of sightseeing, we wanted a low key, non-fussy dinner. We found exactly what we were looking for at Lydon's. The place was busy but the staff found us a table immediately upon arrival. The food was good and well priced, the staff was friendly and the pint was perfect! Live traditional music made the evening complete.

I wanted to enjoy this restaurant more, and our food was fine, but the menu was a bit small, the restaurant a bit loud which made it hard to have a conversation in our group of 8. We didn't go a second time during our week in Cong, but I bet I could enjoy it more a second time, perhaps... More

Had a family meal here whilst staying in Cong. The service was brilliant and food extremely fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. They were extremely accommodating with dietary requirements as well as young children. The live music in the evening added to the whole experience!

We didn't check restaurant reviews prior to seating down for lunch at the restaurant. Ordered the seafood chowder, duck spring rolls, and the crab claw special. All were surprisingly delicious including the home made bread. Service was also very attentive.

Meal was OK, getting the drinks in proved problematic as the barman seemed disinterested in serving customers and concentrated on making coffees ! Keep the head down and hopefully the customers will stop annoying me ! Just say "l'll be with you in a minute " don't ignore people ! Better places and better experiences to be had !

We popped into this packed restaurant and hoping to have a little dinner in town. They tried to find a way to seat us but they were booked. We decided just to sit outside and have a bottle of wine and wait or wander along if nothing came up. Our server was so kind and and attentive. She made it... More

We visited on an evening when local Irish seniors were having a night out. There was music and singing and dancing!!! We had the most amazing time!
