Very run down..and cold in the lounge. Staff are few and far between..but very nice! Food can be hit and miss. It's a great spot for a Hotel and could do very well if loved! Bedroom was very tired and ragged same as downstairs ' it all needs to be refurbished .

We stayed here to go to a gig in a nearby pub and found The Anglers to be a really nice place to stay. Very clean warm rooms. Good choice of breakfasts and we had an evening meal in the bar which was reasonably priced and very tasty. The owner was also kind enough to give us a lift to... More

We had breakfast here this morning. Myself, my wife and our son. Good tasty food, good coffee and good service. The bill for three was €19.50. Vegetarian son was very happy with his fare and the carnivores got what the needed too. Great value.

Good and cheap little hotel to stay in on the way to Connemara. Stopped here instead of going all the way to the west coast late on a friday evening. Room was clean and breakfast next day wasnt bad either.

Four of us had lunch on August 11. We stopped on our trip from Cong to Galway. Great food and friendly service. Most of us had the very good mushroom soup with brown bread. One other had a garden salad. The soup was very good and the brown bread received a score of 8. We are self appointed judges as... More

Stayed for one night, very basic, room was ok, although it could have been properly cleaned, found used soap in bath and a half eaten biscuit with the tea & coffee making facilities. Hotel is very run down and badly needs to be thoroughly cleaned and renovated from top to bottom. Ok for one night.... Staff are lovely tho.

It's a summer tradition of mine to stop at the Anglers Rest on the way back from Cong and have scones with jam and cream. I've also had meals there like the Seafood Platter, which was very enjoyable. On my most recent visit I went at lunch time for a pulled pork panini that had plenty of tasty filling and... More

I don't know why this is called an hotel, more like a lodge, as there is no one on the reception ever. Arrived at 5, nobody in the reception, had to go to the bar to get someone, no apologies. The room is ok, old time analogic television, didn't even know there are hotels who still use it. The idea... More
