We knew going in we would have to order at the bar. But we weren't expecting to have to stand up there for as long as we did to get served. I don't know if this is the best system. Food was average. Came quickly. Live music was good.

Visited O'Conner's with 33 friends and we were kept together in the same area. To make life easy, each table was numbered and it was a case of ordering at the bar to save confusion over later bills. A good choice of food. A 10oz Irish steak cooked medium was perfect. Laid on a bed of onions and mushrooms with... More

We had a very good introduction to Irish Food at O"Connor's Pub. Good fish & Chips and desert. Of course, the food went down better with the Guinness.

O'Connor's Pub is not to be missed. The food is pub food, good. The music, however, is why you go. The night we were there, Christy Barry was playing with no less than 4 fiddlers. two concertina players, on accordion player, a flutist, etc. To top it off, a lady from Chicago of Irish decent joined in to play the...

My daughter,my mother, my Catalan friends and I, arrived here after a day spent at the cliffs of moher. We enjoyed a great evening, eating amazing steaks and fish and listening to some great musicians. The atmosphere in here is great. The sun was beating down outside and my Catalan friends thoroughly enjoyed themselves. If I ever visit west Clare... More

Hands down the BEST food we had in Ireland period. The fish and chips, the seafood chowder, the pork and blood pudding, every single thing was just amazing. You go up and order from the bar and they bring it to you. Great staff, friendly atmosphere. You will not regret a stop to O'Connors.

Fun place to go. Music is the high lite of O'Connor's. The locals drink here and are great fun to chat with. The food is good and service and staff are great.

O'Connor's is a unique little pub in Doolan. The walls are covered with dollar bills and other currency with messages from happy travelers. You might even find messages from your hometown. Good food, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Stop there for a quick lunch and be on your way to The Cliffs of Moher or other sites. I recommend the... More

Stopped here on the way to the Cliffs of Moher. Our tour guide told us that if we ordered at the bar, our food would literally be in front of use before we got back to our table. Thought he was kiding but he was so right. May have been because they knew we were a large bus of people... More
