We stopped here in between visiting the national park and the Kylemore abbey as it is located very conveniently. The service was very friendly. I would recommend the mussels which are delicious, fresh and cheap!

This is a great spot to visit after a walk in the Connemara national park. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. It's a cosy warm pub, the scampi were freshly breaded, crisp with a light tasty tartare sauce. We also had the salmon topped with crab, it was huge and cooked perfectly. Very impressive pub grub,...

The best barfood ever. You should try their steaks and lambs! We could eat our foods inside with our Dog. The place is dog friendly.

Stopped here for lunch, on our drive through connemara. Had the scallops, cooked to perfection. My friends had the chowder, fish & chips, which I tried, were just right. Good choice, worth the stop.

Quiet, excellent service and prices. The lamb stew with mash was excellent. The seafood chowder had so much seafood in it we could only finish half the bowl.

I've visited Veldon's bar many many times over the years, since first visiting Letterfrack in 1975......on honeymoon!In those days it was ham sandwiches with your pint of Guiness!!! They have a very good restaurant there now, which is very good value for money. The food was well presented and tasty, with generous portions. We will return in 2017.....Go raibh maith... More
