Unfortunately, we spent too much time enjoying the Worm Hole and the fort and cliffs at Dun Aonghasa, so we had to rush through out lamb stew and Guinness, but it was the perfect way to end the day

Really happy your visit to Watty's is part of your enjoyable Aran Islands Experience to Dún Áonghasa Fort and Worm hole and finished your day with an Irish Stew & Guinness could not get more Irish than all that.
Again many thanks for your positive review and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future

Glad you really enjoyed your Pint at Joe Watty's Bar, I take it was a Pint of Guinness we are talking about here? and delighted you mentioned our Friendly Staff as they truly are, they enjoy their work, welcoming our customers and making them feel at home, and of course ( as I've said in other replies ) we the locals love to talk/chat to the tourists and of course that adds so much to the Island Visit Experience.
So once again many thanks for your recommendation and look forward to pouring you many pints in the future on your return to Aran and Joe Watty's Bar.
Le meas,
PJ

Locals love this restaurant, but it was ok for me. My husband however had a huge bowl of mussels that were awesome. He truly enjoyed his meal.

Many thanks for your review and glad that your visit was ok for you, and really happy your husband enjoyed his Garlic Mussels with Sour Dough Bread which I am glad to say are one one of our most popular dishes.
Locals and tourists mix well at Watty's which makes the visiting experience to the Island that more special, again thank you for your comments

...if they had my first 2 choices for dinner. The place got crowded for drinks at 11pm. They have a large outdoor deck area if the weather is good. Live music that night was cancelled.

Many thanks for taking the time to review your visit to Watty's.
I take it from your review we were out of what would be your preferred Option from our menu that evening. There are many reasons why this could happen, even with the best planning its not an easy task to gauge from night to night what sells better on any given night so a bigger demand that usual for a a certain choice might mean we sell out or we could be out of stock or if it were Fresh Fish/Seafood there may not have a delivery due to weather or just the fisherman on that day not being lucky enough to catch that option. but for whatever reason I regret we were not able to provide you your your first or second choice.
Live music those few nights was cancelled as a mark of respect due to a tragic event locally.
I do hope that overall you enjoyed your Aran Islands visit and if you do call again that we shall be in a better position to provide you with the full service you expect and deserve.
Agan may thanks for taking the time to review us.
PJ.
