Fishing with my Dad on Corrib, 5 nights out of 5 in Lydons, service excellent, food excellent, and always busy! The staff from Ashford Castle even drop guests off at the pub for a meal and a pint! This probably says it all!

I would like to thank you for taking the time to leave your review. I was most disheartened to read your comments. I have taken all your comments on board and will look into them in greater detail with the accommodation department. I do wish this matter was brought to our attention on your departure. We are a family run business run by the Lydon Family since 1976, I would like to sincerely apologise for the poor level of quality and would ask you to send me a private email to discuss further. Thank you again for leaving your review.
