Visited the rathbaun hotel during the matchmaking festival, I was surprised how busy the town and this place was. The also offer the only cash back facility in town (no ATM machine to be found). Pints are good, always a bonus! You could find a pub with more ambiance and another restaurant with finer cuisine, but The Rathbaun wins the prize for atmosphere (relaxed), service (quick and so friendly), and fun (great music to sing and clap along with). Don't miss it! Good food good. Place I like food good staff. I won week holiday with.
Matchmaking Festival Lisdoonvarna Co Clare Ireland
Most staff seem very young and seem to be in charge of what comes out of the kitchen, all staff were very pleasant and the traditional session was very good!
Would return to the hotel for the pleasant staff and music not the food.
Oh ive danced my heart out in the rathbaun and made many good friends dancing in the afternoon in fact one can dance all day great music ive also had lunch and it was fantastic i really recommend it i believe the accomodation is also good
