I have been in Irish Pub junkie for years and have visited Irish Pubs in four continents. Griffin’s in Clifden is the real deal. It has great atmosphere and good hardy food. The staff is friendly and accommodating to everyone.

Whilst visiting family we spent a wonderful evening in this bar. There was live music (so not the place for an intimate chat) but a wonderful party atmosphere. People of all ages having a wonderful time.

David Griffin made me feel very welcome when the Mrs and I called in for a quick pint whilst in Clifden, my family name is Griffin so it made sense. I've actually been there a few times with the Clifden Welsh Kings from Bridgend.
It is a great place to be at especially at the weekends.

We were also there when the Hernon brothers were playing and it was absolutely fabulous. Great music. As the bartender there put it - "If you're going to have music you might as well have good music."

I have no idea what the food is like - but whatever it is, it's worth it for the music.
