Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We popped in here for the first time on a recent visit to Clifden. The bar is located within Foyle's Hotel. It was a Thursday evening and it was a fundraiser in aid of an excellent cause - the lifeboats or RNLI. The music was brilliant and the place was humming. We met a family of eight who were visiting from San Diego and they seemed delighted with the atmosphere! There is some seriously excellent musical talent in this area and I think some members of the lifeboat crew also performed. A brilliant evening had by all.

Unfortunately our experience was spoiled by being asked to pay €10 each to support an unknown band after actually being in the bar for at least an hour beforehand. It seemed very unfair for a nice young woman to walk around with a plastic tub to ask for money for a nameless band. Musicians were very capable but played a very self indulgent set on this night.
Bar service was fine but I thought table service was to be kept until October 22nd.
Gents toilet facilities certainly need to be upgraded, floor area was a disgrace for a hotel of this standard.

I cannot recommend Mullarkey's enough. The place is a communicative and a creative oasis. There's always top-class live music, the customers can chat for days, the staff are all mad-laughers and the smoking area provides peace and an open-minded natural feel. Call in for a gig, a pint and a chat. You'll not regret an evening in Mullarkey's.

One of the best bars i have been in. Jason mine host runs a tight little room here featuring food, the best music around and a comfortable sorround to enjoy. The bar is in the back of Foyles Hotel on the main street in Clifden on the west/wild coast of Ireland.Ypu can get a room up stairs at a reasonable rate and party the night away. Great bar great people. Keep an eye out for Nicholas Timothy a regular in house performer who will keep you entertained through the long cold nights

Myself and my friends had the absolute pleasure of spending the weekend in Clifden just gone. We were treated like royalty everywhere we went but the craic we had in Mullarkeys could be bet by none.
A group of 28 women dressed up in drag is something most pubs would cringe at but Jason and his staff not only put up with the gang of us, they also made us feel at home and let us get involved in the music, craic and general merriment of the place.
Every single one of us have already started planning our next visit to this vibrant and friendly bar whether it be in a raucous gang or to come back with our families as we were made feel that welcome.
Thanks to all the staff, musicians and clifden locals for not only tolerating us but joining us on the merry send off of our extravagant hen 😊
