We called into the Mooring during the day when having a day out and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere in this pub/restaurant is great. They have one of the best selections of seafood I have seen in a while and I would recommend the...More

The food was good. We were in a very rainy evening. Was quiet and our table had a good view but the service was not very good.

If you want toget good food for a reasonable price this is a good choice. The half duck was just out so i went for the steak, which was a good alternative. My girlfried had the same good choice when going for the lamb.

This is another of our regular eateries, when on holiday in Clifden. The roasts, lasagne and scampi and chips are all to be reccommended
