We've went for our B&B recommendation. It's true what they told us: a lot of people. It was 6:10pm and there were only 2 tables! But it's also true you don't have to wait too much time. The service was superior, and the food amazing, we will come back tomorrow!

It was very busy when we arrived at about 7.30. The wait was 1 hour so we hung around the bar and quickly got a seat and ate at the bar. Prawn cocktail was excellent, as were the fish and chips (and Guinness). Very informal, non-pretentious bar/restaurant that I'd definitely recommend.

Staff was friendly, great food and good traditional music. Great atmosphere and good variety on the menu. They even have pizza for picky kiddos. Visit Guy's when visiting Clifden.

Visited Guys on three occasions in our week long holiday in Clifden. Wonderful staff, very pleasant and welcoming. Great relaxed ambience for dining, we can recommend the tai curry, the fresh baked pizza, the Irish stew and mash and the fish and chips, all delightful. The children's menu was equally as good, our kids ate well on each visit. A... More

Ate here during our stay in Clifden and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were excellent and the food was superb. Come early though as they can get busy in the evenings and don't take reservations. You won't be disappointed!
