The sign said Wait to be seated, but there was no one around to seat (or greet) us, but finally a fellow came out from the back, and from that point on the service was fine. A lot of the food had ingredients I don't...More

If you come here, order the seafood chowder - loaded with seafood and great brown bread on the side.

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.
