“Cong's Best Eatery”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Cottage like dining lounge, located in front of a larger dining room serving the Lodge, Lydon's offers simple paninis and sandwiches, hearty burgers, battered haddock, fresh salmon, pasta and salads, and those wonderful thick cut chips. Delicious and fresh, with very friendly staff, it's a pleasant respite from touring in a very pretty little Irish village. And the outdoor seating in this latest heat wave was welcome. €36 for four, not including drinks.

Had a wonderful stay and will certainly get back one day! Great staff and accommodations. Restaurant and bar are fun and friendly. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing time in the Irish countryside. Wonderful find in a lovely little Irish town.

We only planed to visit cong on a day trip - stayed two days. Lydons was great value and the accommodation was excellent. The food in the bar was really really good. It's family run and they could not do enough to make our stay nicer. Barman is a bit mad but in a good way! It's a real gem among the plastic smiles of most Irish hotels who just want your money. Faith in Irish hospitality is restored!

Room Tip: We didn't book in advance but despite it being busy it didn't seem to matter as we got a nic...

Unless you're a fisherman, there's not much to do in Cong but eat, drink and enjoy the beautiful Irish countryside. But the villagers are very friendly, especially the family that owns and runs Lydon's Lodge. Each morning we were treated to a hearty Irish breakfast, made lovingly by the matron of the manor, who often joined us for a chat while we finished our pots of excellent coffee and tea. At night, it was blast to drink Guiness and Smithwick's with the locals at Lydon's pub, where many congregated to watch football on the tele or to listen to local musicians by the fire. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. We stayed four nights and will stay there again next time we're in Ireland.

Have stayed here a couple of times now while visiting friends nearby. I would definitely recommend it and will be coming back again. The staff were very friendly and always eager to help. Ate in the restaurant and food was top notch, I loved it. Looking forward to my next trip already.

Nothing stuffy at this B & B except the nice warm quilts and bedding. The rooms are spacious so you don't have to climb over your luggage and the beds are very comfortable. The staff is helpful but never in the way. We took a nice long soak in the large tub and a long day of touring in the countryside. It was nice to come "home" to the lodge where comfort is the first order of business.
