We really enjoyed our lunch at Tigh Giblin. Service was great, food delicious - my fish and chips was the best we had during our entire stay in Ireland! Lovely atmosphere in this traditional Irish pub - just wish we could have returned that evening for the music!

Definitely recommend

We had just gotten off the ferry from the Aran Islands and were looking for a nice spot for dinner. Driving through Spidel we spotted this restaurant and took a chance. What a treat! A charming, intimate, family owned pub and the food was delicious. Calamari and fish cakes as appetizers, tasty and fresh. Three of us opted for the roast chicken, moist and flavorful. The fourth in our group had sausages made with Guinness, (super bangers and mash). Desert was the wildest ice cream flavors, we had to try them. They included pumpkin whiskey, stewed rhubarb & Sambuca, bacon brittle, and brown bread. I know, it sounds crazy but they were truly memorable and no one complained. All in all, a charming evening, good food, great service and a very friendly atmosphere.

A small pub with very good seafood a good selection of craft beer and very good live music. Very pleasant and helpful staff were prompt to make amends (free main course) when part of our order was delayed. The home made ice cream is gorgeous.
