“Fantastic place...Great food”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

This new pub/restaurant is a must for anyone wishing to eat out and enjoy a good night of entertainment in Spiddal. We had a lovely meal here in the late afternoon. Staff v friendly and service was great. We shared the spicy chicken wings to start and for mains we had slow cooked pork belly...(absolutely delicious) and cod on a bed of leek with white wine sauce. Everything about the place made it a relaxing and enjoyable experience. They have good music Thurs through to Sunday nights. To be recommended...highly.

“Genuine standout evening meal in spiddal”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Top meal. Salad was imaginative and delicious. Sweet potato fries with fried fish was knock out. Desserts of orange and coffee creme brûlée was perfect and great espresso. They are taking traditional food and using real flair. We are going again tomorrow. Great local beers as well.

“Highly recommended restaurant!!”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Tigh Giblin in a few words -
Gorgeous food (good quality & interesting menu), relaxed and friendly atmosphere, pleasant staff, reasonable prices & on top of that- often there are great music sessions to be heard here!

As a local, we are delighted to have such a nice restaurant/ bar at our doorstep!

Favorite dishes: hmmm I tried a few dishes and they were all nice... but I highly recommend the Mussels starter dish & as well the prawn tacos !!! Yummy!

Definitely worth a visit!!

“Wonderful meal in a new restaurant!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We were staying down the road in a local B&B and decided to try this new venue - we were NOT disappointed. My husband had the fish and chips that he described as the best he had ever had - the batter was made there in the kitchen and was light and delicate and only highlighted the freshness of the cod - splendid. I had the pork belly stuffed with black pudding - also exquisite. We looked at the dessert menu after spying some of what the neighboring tables had ordered and shared a dish of profiteroles in a brandy chocolate sauce - to.die.for. We recommend this location whole-heartedly and were delighted to find this little gem in the heart of sweet little Spiddal!

“Spiddal's newest restaurant/pub”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Delighted to have a top-quality local restaurant here in Spiddal again. The goat-cheesecake starter and prawn tacos were delicious.. freshly prepared with fresh and creative ingredients. Wine list is limited. Several evenings a week live music with talented local musicians is featured in pub-session style. Will certainly come again and recommend to friends.
