We stopped off here after a windy walk up Tully Mountain, and just loved it. The bar is warm and cosy, with just the right music, at just the right level. The food was superb - my daughter had the best mussels she'd ever tasted,...More

Went here on a recommendation but was greatly disappointed. The food (chowder, calamari) was only fair and the service the same. Cute place but I wouldn't go back. Overpriced.

Fresh, local seafood and vegetables. Beautifully prepared. Memorable. Busy, but worth the wait. Very reasonably priced.

Description
Veldons Seafarer Bar and Restaurant is located in Letterfrack village at one of the main crossroads in Connemara – the heart of Connemara! We are located along the Wild Atlantic Way where the landscape is shaped by the sea and the local characters are full of creativity and chat. The bar has been a hub of activity for many years with Veldons Bar also being main grocers in the area. The old shop is now our great new restaurant. We aim to offer a friendly welcoming atmosphere where locals and visitors can enjoy a visit. Great food is served all day in the bar and we also have a separate restaurant. We are perfectly located for a quick coffee and sandwich before you carry on with your journey, a hearty steak after you have conquered Diamond Hill, or make a weekend of it and enjoy the ambiance of our restaurant followed by a pint in the bar! There is always a smiling face and a warm welcome in Veldons Seafarer.
