Just walk in, seems they don’t take bookings. Got table easily. We both got mains from the specials and they were both very good - sea bass and lamb. Puddings were great too. Good service.

Friendly staff. I had the soup to start with it was lovely the homemade bread was nice too. My partner got the seafood chowder he said it wasn't the best (he's an expert on seafood at this stage) he said it wasn't creamy enough nor...was there enough fish in it. I got the lamb stew it was lovely and my partner got the lamb burger he said it was lovely but very rich. Portion sizes were good too. Good value for money too I think. Two Guinness, two Tia Marias, two starters, two mains €65.More

We called on spec one early evening and waited a short time at the bar before eating. We timed it right. It was busy and got busier as a queue formed to eat, with many turned away. The local brew Bridewell Blonde is recommended. The...Connemara Lamb stew with mash was tasty, if a bit watery. The vegan Portobello mushroom burger was excellent and a rare find in a bar clearly specializing in meat and seafood dishes - someone has clearly made a commendable and successful effort to please veggie customers.More

Guys Bar in Clifden is a fantastic bar serving top notch food. The decor is warm and friendly, the staff couldn't be more helpful and the food is delicious. We only intended to visit once on our trip to Clifden but purposefully booked again for...our last night. Highly recommend this terrific spot!More
