“The best wedding dinner ever!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Myself and my husband got married in July, and as we only wanted a small family wedding with a "party" atmosphere we booked Maggie Mays for our reception. It was FANTASTIC. The canapes and bubbly were waiting for us to arrive and were delicious. The restaurant upstairs looked wonderful with one big long table ready for everyone to sit around. My friends and family are still raving about the fillet steak and how they have never tasted a meal as good. The food was cooked perfectly and served with the care and attention we had come to expect of Maggies. If I were to say how much all the food, wine and finger food cost you wouldnt believe me. It was the best value and most enjoyed wedding I have ever been to.

“Consistently Good”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

I have a friend who lives outside Loughrea. When we visit my wife's mother in Clare each year, we head over to Loughrea and dinner at Maggie Mays. Do not think Dublin Pub Crawl type of place, this is truly a pub of the West that feeds the locals. The service has always been friendly, efficient, swift and honest. Our party sometime consists of up to 10 people, so we have tried almost everything on the menu. The "Roast of the Day" never disappoints. The spuds and veggies are served family-st yle, and are always fresh and plentiful. The meat, fish, lamb, chicken, etc., has always been served perfectly cooked; and the desserts are surpisingly decadent You will also get an "honest pull" for your pint. Prices are reasonable for Ireland now. This is a friendly and satisfying place to dine whether it is sunny out, or a 'soft rain'. I would recommend Maggie Mays to anyone looking for good food, not just pub food.

Reviewed July 9, 2012

great local pub with modern upstairs restaurant with great food and wine, only complaint was the echo of music from the bar, friendly staff with good knowledge of gluten free items on the menu.
