A pot of tea here at the Crowe's Nest was lifesaving. The chowder was delicious, and chock full of all kinds of seafood, not "seafood surprise" at all, at all. Nice staff there, and they had their hands full with wedding party people coming in and out as well. We sat at the bar and just soaked in the atmosphere.
Thanks for such as welcoming time and couple of hours.

This is a great pub with excellent food and service and as a tour guide and driver I have been bringing clients here for several years. However, on Sat June 16th I reserved a table for 6 guests and myself. I parked my mini-bus outside and as it was a tight squeeze I hadn’t realised that I was not quite flush so that any lorry or large vehicle would have difficulity getting past. We all make mistakes and I would be the first to admit that I was in the wrong. I brought my clients on a walk about around Cong before lunch and when I entered the pub a female staff member whom I had never met went off on a rant, shouting at the top of her voice that I needed to move my bus immediately. This was in front of my clients who were clearly embarrassed and taken aback. I tried to deflect by asking where our table was and said I would move my bus forward slightly which I was able to do as the car in front had left. When I walked back in I said to the staff member that I didn’t appreciate being spoken to like that especially in front of clients and the proper way to have handled the situation would have been to discreetly take me to one side when I arrived and ask me to move my bus. I also told her that I bring guests in here on a regular basis. She continued to shout at me in front of other patrons. I told her that she really needed to calm down and walked away so she wouldn’t continue. This was a very unpleasant experience especially for my clients who were on the first day of a 6 day tour with me around Ireland. Not the sort of Fáilte they were expecting especially as I had highly recommended your place. Thankfully this woman disappeared for the remainder of our lunch and the girl who served us was her usual pleasant and efficient self. This woman really needs a crash course in good Customer Service. I would be reluctant to return based on this unnecessary outburst. Regards, Cian.

This is a great pub, local sports were on the TV and the food and drinks were excellent. Perfect for our family arriving late in the afternoon. Comfortable and relaxing.
