“Nice Music Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Decided to see what Lowry's had to offer by way of music in the evening and was not disappointed. Spot on 10pm "Pete & Lee" ?? A mature combo of talented gentlemen. One playing the guitar, harmonica and great vocals, the other on trad Irish squeeze box (melodeon) (and also red Accordion). Great Craic over a few pints and well into the late evening. Audience was 90% tourists from all over. Many could not have understood a word but that didn't matter. Great time by all.

Comfortable seating in lovely lounge

Worth noting that ALL our drinks were cheaper here than opposite in Coneelys Bar dead opposite! (Don't forget a half of beer is not half the price of a pint but an extra 50cents!)

The music. The bar. The people. This bar is what you're looking for in Ireland. We had the time of our lives there.

“unexpected charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

We arrived late Sunday night and visited with Doogle O'Brien, the bar tender, and a farmer visiting for the Connemara pony show. We came looking for music, but they don't have it Sunday night. Instead, we found lots of stories and easy Irish charm that made Clifden feel welcoming.

“Don't leave Clifden without spending an evening in this bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

We love this bar. Great trad music, great bar staff, great craic. What more could you ask for on a night out? We were there for an evening last August and heading back to the Clifden area end of July. We will definitely be visiting Lowry's for a couple.
