Paddy Coynes Pub is a beautiful traditional pub set in Tullycross, on Renvyle Peninsula, Connemara. The pub is perfect for anyone looking for a good pint. Whether you fancy a quiet pint in St. Anns (the snug) or a bowl of fresh mussels by the fire, you will always be greeted with a warm welcome. The pub is like a mini museum, where you notice a different artefact on every visit, that always bring up new topics of conversation. We are renowned for our great food & we pride ourselves on serving as much locally sourced produces as we can and even have our own vegetable and herb garden. Never ones to stand still for too long, we run many unique and different events throughout the year - bands, mystery

A great experience beside a roaring fire. Very cosy with a welcome on the mat. Very easy to fall into conversation with locals, with the man of the house or fear an ti presiding. Never pass it without calling in.

Unfortunately we sat in the annex at the back, and would have much preferred to sit in the main dining area which looked like it had a lot more atmosphere and authenticity. The food was great and the service was very good and friendly too....If you go, try and ensure you are in the main restaurant, and perhaps book and ask for that. Would go back though.More

We recently returned to Tullycross and Paddy Coynes for a family get together dinner and even on a very wet Thursday night it was busy and rightly so. This is a real gem of a pub with fantastic food, lovely atmosphere, great staff who provide...top level service with a smile. During dinner we had spotted the chef coming out from the kitchen for a walk about and a chat with some tables and yes he did come around to ours also. So engaging asking where we had travelled from and informative even telling us what time the fish had arrived earlier that afternoon and shared how we could even recreate the dish at home. What an experience that you just don't get very often. Top marks to all involved. Keep up the very high standards.More

Had a fantastic visit to Paddy Coyne’s pub yesterday. The staff are all so friendly, welcoming and obliging. It was a pleasure to dine in such a warm and friendly environment. The food was the best we had anywhere in Connemara. And the vegetarian options...were remarkably well considered and original. The vegetable soup was the best we ever tasted. The duck bon bons, buttermilk chicken and Irish stew were all thoroughly enjoyed too. Everything we are was delicious. And the atmosphere really made our experience a very memorable one. The perfect end to our two week holiday in Connemara. Thanks to all at Paddy Coyne’s for their wonderful hospitality and fantastic food.More

We stopped by on the way to our accommodation in Tully as our Air bnb host recommended we have dinner there. So glad we did now. It's a popular spot and tables allocated one first come first served basis. Luckily we were there early enough...so we got a table. Colin and all the staff there were friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding. We shared a massive pot of mussels between us to start and then selected fish from the daily specials board (one hake, one pollock). We just about had room to share a cheesecake to finish. Everything was delicious, beautifully presented and very enjoyable. Place is very quaint, cosy and spotlessly clean, and well managed re covid-19. We stopped by the following evening for a pint of Guinness and it was great too. Definitely do not go by Paddy Coynes if you are in the area....you won't be disappointed!!More
