Wonderful experience in this unique bar. The food was superb the atmosphere relaxed and the staff were all so friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The bar itself is full of history and character and the owner warm and welcoming. Back to the food...we all...choose seafood and the meals were beautifully presented, delicate and well balanced and portions were decent. Highly recommend.👏More

We stopped here on our Backroads bike tour for a whiskey tasting and dinner, the owner welcomed us with great stories about the history of the pub and then I enjoyed a great seafood chowder while a friend had the biggest bowl of mussels I’ve...ever seen, all harvested earlier that day.More

No reservations on a Saturday night but the owner kindly seated us in the boathouse. Good food and the Eton Mess for dessert was scrumptious.

Amazing fresh seafood in Connemara! We ate dinner here several times during our stay in Tully Cross. Everything we had was devious especially the seafood. I’m severely allergic to seafood and they took such great care of me! Their staff is WONDERFUL!!!! They take such...amazing care of you and treat you just like their own family! While we were there we chatted with the Chef and the owners who were delightful and made you feel right at home! We went in during the late afternoon and Colin taught us how to pour the perfect pint! Such an amazing experience! If you don’t eat here while you are in Connemara then your trip just isn’t complete! You won’t be disappointed book there today!More

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
