We just stopped in here for a light lunch & it seems to be a very popular venue. We enjoyed our lunch & would make a return visit & maybe next time we'd go for dinner & try some of the seafood Oliver's is noted for. Looking forward to coming back when in the area.

We had lunch here as a big group and the food was delicious. The views from the back of the bar over the harbour and bay are fantastic.

We had a delicious Sunday afternoon lunch at Oliver's, where tourists, local families, and a few fishermen made for a lively and fun meal. Great soup, seafood, sandwiches, and, of course, beer. Located in a scenic spot near the ferry for Inishbofin.

We dropped by Oliver's Bar while out sightseeing on a dullish day. What a find, We ordered a serving of mussels which arrived accompanied by delicious chips and a salad, glad we only ordered one serving. They were delicious, we washed them down with two glasses of creamy Guinness. Lovely staff and a great find, not to be missed.

Just a flying visit to Cleggan and stopped for a drink at Oliver's bar. It's been7 years since visiting and apart from the chip shop not being there anymore Oliver's bar has not changed and still has the comfy atmosphere of a country bar. We did not try the food by the menu was pretty extensive. Maybe next time we... More
