Derryclare Restaurant

Overlooking the square, this is one of the few restaurants in Clifden with outdoor seating to the front, making it the ideal place to sit in fine weather - for people-watching and just to relax and enjoy the sunshine.


Add a glass of chilled wine and some crusty bread and a tapenade dip, or some of the seafood the area is renowned for, and it’s a very pleasant place to while away on hour or two.


Blackboard menus on the pavement offer day-long specials that include fish dishes such as Derryclare seafood bake with Parmesan crust. Lunch specials may include large bowls of Killary mussels, served in a tomato and fresh basil sauce or the more traditional Marinière style, with white wine and cream. But, with dishes like beef barolo rigatoni pasta or traditional Connemara lamb stew on offer, meat lovers have plenty of choice too.


The cooking is good and everything is attractively presented, with main dishes usually accompanied by a pretty fresh leaf and carrot salad, dressed with a lemon and lime viniagrette, or French fries. Desserts include a local version of Tarte Tatin with crème anglaise and home made ice cream.


There is also plenty of seating indoors, including the coveted window seats, and service is very pleasant. This friendly and reasonably priced restaurant is understandably popular with families, who are well catered for with pasta and pizza options (also available to take away).
