Sweeney's Strand Bar, Shop, and Post Office
Claddaghduff and Omey Strand
Co Galway, Ireland
Claddaghduff is a beautiful village on the Aughrus Peninsula in N.W. Connemara, on the Wild Atlantic Way. Here it is - from Omey Strand, under the lucky rainbow.
And Sweeney's is the very heart of the village.
Sweeney's of Claddaghduff has been a family-run business for generations, serving the community and its many visitors in so many ways: its comfortable and clean bar with a wide selection of food and beverages, shop and Post Office, petrol and diesel, fuel supplies for the home, entertainments, and much much more.
With views from the bar across Omey Strand to the world-famous Omey Island, it is a place where you can relax over delicious fresh food and a drink, and truly feel the peace of this magical area in North-west Connemara. Claddaghduff, Omey, and the whole Aughrus Peninsula are on the WILD ATLANTIC WAY - a beautiful, unspoilt part of it, and yet only a 15 minute drive from Clifden.
Sweeney's pride themselves on running the kind of business that really shows customers it's family run. Proprietors Mary Sweeney and Malachy are always somewhere on hand to lend a friendly ear and help you out. The staff of Sweeney's are all long term, having worked there for many years: Liz, Teresa, Paul, Roisin, and others who lend a hand from the Sweeney family...it really is one happy family, and it shows.
This site aims to give you a flavour of what you can expect and enjoy during your visits to Sweeney's.
Sweeney's truly has come a long, long way since its early beginnings (Mary took over the business from her own parents, so it has been in existence for a long time now).
Yet it retains the charm and friendliness that people expect and want from a business in this beautiful part of Connemara. The old days and the old ways...
