We visited Clifden and loved the town and area. We wandered around and decided to go into Griffins bar. What a great decision. Unexpectedly it was a music festival in Clifden, although we were told the entertainment is typical.
Two young talented guys played the violin and melodica. They were joined by another guy who sang traditional songs, then joined in the music with his bohdran and also played the spoons. One if the young guys also danced. It was exactly what we were looking forward to - a traditional Irish pub night. We had already eaten so can't comment on the food. we were told the next day they were joined by other dancers and musicians - wish we had stayed longer.
