We arrived here after a recommendation from a local - and were very happy we stopped here for supper and of course a few Guinness and other assorted local brews. Food was tasty and plentiful and service was friendly and courteous.

If you want to experience a true Irish pub, Clancy's is the place to do so.The waitress Deidre was so kind and welcoming...she offered suggestions that were delicious...portions were very generous and served piping hot.Prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was outstanding.

A big disappointment. Because of the good recommendations found here and on the Internet we decided to have a quick dinner here. Expectations weren't high, but we'd be okay with decent pub food. But everything was bland, without taste, fatty, quick heated pre-cooked meals. The atmosphere is nice enough, waiting friendly and speedily, and the beers are fine. But well,... More

Had a lovely lunch today at Clancys, on the recommendation of an employee in a nearby shop. The service was fast and efficient, the food both lovely and plentiful and terrific value for money, at only 10 euro for a chicken curry. We will certainly be going back soon.

I had a pint and the sea food pasta during the week in Clancys and I was very disappointed. It basically consisted of haddock in a creamy sauce with pasta. No prawns, or any other variety of fish.this was false advertising as according to the description in the menu it had a selection of locally sourced fresh fish. I also... More

We find that service here can be a little hit and miss and sense that there is an absence of proprietorial concern during the lunch period. Food is... More

Went for a beer.... In the centre good for a quick beer seemed like was full of locals. Probably not my choice for food as it seemed very bistro like. And there are plenty of other choices. Go for the beer eat elsewhere

You have omitted the superb Quinlan's Fish restaurant. Located in Princes Street, it is outstandingly good. All fresh fish and simply delicious.
