We had a family meal in the Gallery restaurant in the Alcock and Brown Hotel in Clifden, Connemara. It was brilliant from start to finish. The renovations to the restaurant are great and the food is fabulous and very reasonable. The mussels to start were delicious and my sister loved the chowder, for main course we had steak (the best ever), hake (very very tasty) and the special of the night monkfish (absolutely fabulous) the food was so fresh and very well presented. The desserts were to die for especially the cheesecake (light and fresh) they also had a homemade chocolate mouse cake which was fab( we tried to get the recipe but its top secret!!!) we will definately be back, but the next time we will bring more people so we can sample more dishes. Well done to the owners you have a great restaurant that has it all, great staff, great atmosphere, great food and all at great prices.

Stay at the Alcock and Brown, the rooms have just been renovated.
Eat at the Gallery, the chef is French, the food was full of flavour, no flour sauces make it very light and fresh seafood....What more could you want.? I stayed with a friend and we were amazed with the warm friendly staff and the cosy surroundings in the Gallery.
Great Value menu as well. I can not find fault.

We are just back from a trip to beautiful Connemara. Passing through Cliften on Saturday evening looking for a place to eat we visited the Gallery restaurant in the Alcock and Brown Hotel. We had plenty of choice from the menu which was full of great tasty dishes. The staff were great and very friendly and helpful. Will definitely eat here again next time we visit

We've stayed in the Alcock and Brown hotel before and were delighted to return, Wow, what a lot of work they have been doing since our last stay, the rooms have been very nicely refurbished, the beds are still as comfy :-)) They have a new Chef this year in the "Gallery restaurant" great menu and the food is fabulous, We ate there both nights and would highly recommend the seafood chowder and the rack of lamb, it's well worth a visit . The staff were brilliant and when it came to ordering for the "fussy" children nothing was too much trouble. Well done to everybody at the Alcock and Brown for all the hard work you have done. We'll be back!!!

Had a lovely meal here on recommendation from a friend. We were a party of 6 and received a very warm welcome. I had the chowder, followed by wonderful Connemara lamb and topped off by homemade apple pie (AND it was home-made!!). Great atmosphere and nothing was too much trouble for the attentive staff. Will definitely visit again when I'm next in the area.
