We missed the music but enjoyed the ambiance of the pub. A can't miss spot in Clifden. The location is central to the core of Clifden and walking distance to anywhere down town.

Lowry's Bar is a fairly traditional Irish pub. The atmosphere is good, and their selection of beers is okay, though not great. They have a good selection of whisky, though. Definitely a good place to have a beer if you're visiting Clifden.
