We were fishing on lough Corrib and being hungry we decided to make a "Pit Stop" in Lydons Lodge....We ended up booking in for One Night but that became 3 nights as we found a real Gem of a restaurant & a fantastic pub with all the trimmings. They even cooked out beautiful "Catch" on the second night....we cannot say enough about the quality of the food/menu, the staff & the whole athmosphere, they even fixed our problem so we could go fishing on their boat using their rods etc......what service !!!!
We found our heaven in Lydons and will return no matter what time of year, fishing or not as you cannot find better. Looking forward to August when we will return with some friends to the "Wild & Wonerful" Cong.

Went to visit the Lydon Lodge this weekend and the food was fantastic. Great selection on the menu and cooked to perfection. The staff are friendly and welcoming! Always a good flow of people coming through the doors. You feel right at home in the Lydon Lodge and will most certainly be visiting again! Nice open fire for the cold evenings of Ireland.


Ps. Deirdre tell Sean "Realt Dubh" finished in LAST PLACE :)

A traditional Irish bar with good Guinness, an open fire and friendly staff. Who knew they could do Italian food so well, tagliatelle and lasagne were both lovely.

We decided to eat at Lydon's Lodge rather than at Ashford Castle the evening we stayed. This was based on other peoples reviews. They did not disappoint. I was craving a steak but all they had on the menu was a sirloin which I don't ususally like in the USA. I ordered it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. It was one of the best steaks I ever had anywhere. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. My husband had the fresh cod which was also delicious. Service was great, too. If you want to save a few euros and have a really great meal, choose Lydon's as an alternative to eating at the pricey castle. It's a short 7 minute walk up a lit path to the Town of Cong. Highly recommended.
