We were in Clifden this week and had lunch at Cullen's. It was disappointing to say the least. We ordered soup and a toasted sandwich. The soup came with a sprinkling of dried mixed herbs which overpowered the soup. The toasted sandwich was cold and...More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch after hiking in Connemara National Park. The food was delicious (especially the homemade rhubarb pie), the atmosphere quaint and cozy, and the service and price were just right! We really enjoyed lunch at this great spot! :-)

Enjoyed the very good lamb stew at Cullens on a cold and rainy Easter Sunday. Although the restaurant was very busy, I was impressed with the owner’s prompt, well-organised and friendly manner in which she served the full restaurant.
