DH had the special - a HUGE plate of mussels done just right. Says it was his favorite mussel dish in Ireland. Lamb stew was an eye-opener for a US gal - we think stew means tomatoes, but this one was loaded with tender bites of lamb in a broth more like chicken soup, and oodles of delicious potatoes and root veggies.

Atmosphere very family-friendly and pleasant. Sit by the window if you can for the people-watching (even in the rain).

You couldn't ask for a more friendly place or more delicious food. We were in Clifden for a week and had to force ourselves not to eat there every night! A lovely variety of food and all so well presented. We would recommend it highly.

For the sake of Pete! This 14 table restaurant started us off with a tiny bite of a mousse of chicken with a dab of creme fraiche and a drizzle of chili oil. Appetizers were amazing, dinner was extraordinary, and even the house wines were paired well with the food. No wonder this restaurant came so highly recommended.

We dined at the Derryclare three times in the month that we were in the Clifden area. The food was consistently very good - well presented - nice menu variety - knowledgeable servers - friendly yet unobtrusive service. I recommend it!

It was a little too cool. The brie appetizer was great, the entrees good, and the dessert not so good
