As suggested by the hotel, we decided on EJ Kings for dinner. An unassuming bar on the corner of the main square a passerby may not assume the quality if food served inside. Don't hesitate because the meal was amazing! The smoked salmon starter was incredibly tasty, the best I've had in Ireland. The chowder was perfect and the fish and chips very satisfying. Service was prompt and friendly. Would absolutely go back!

The restaurant here is upstairs and has a nice atmosphere, with rough stone walls. The tables are a bit cramped, and the food is the type you get all over Ireland. I thought it was adequate but not very interesting, although the rest of the family loved it and the kids adored the home made brown bread. The staff were very helpful and friendly, so I would recommend it for a family meal, but not for a gourmet experience.

on a day trip around Connemara called into E.J. Kings for lunch and was not disappointed.
Excellent food and service by friendly staff. Lovely traditional pub in a lovely town, would go back if ever in Clifden again.

We ate here in the bar on Sat night and couldnt have been happier. The service given by the gentleman with the English accent was second to none. There were 5 of us including a 2 year old and nothing was too much trouble. He was very friendly and we felt like he actually appreciated our custom even with a child! A somewhat different experience to the previous night in Mitchells Restaurant, Clifden - see separate review.
The food was magnificent - between us we had a good range of the foods on offer and everyone was very happy with what they had. The Beef & Guinness casserole was a big hit as was the Venison.
We will definitly be back to E J Kings and will recommend it to anyone we know going to Connemara.
