We were lucky on the first night having music. The pub food was so good that we decided to come back the next night. The Guiness beer definately tastes better in Ireland than it does in the United States!

Great dinner with slightly modern and elevated takes on some classic dishes. Place was cozy yet didn't feel crowded. Musicians with ethereal voices and heartwarming skills. Lovely lovely evening!

We had a really good meal in this restaurant. My sister and I shared a seafood platter. The fish was very fresh, beautifully cooked and nicely presented. We finished the meal with cocktails, which were sublime. Would definitely recommend this restaurant

Excellent pub and restaurant in Doolin. Good food, atmosphere, early music and Craic. Gets very crowded like all the Doolin pubs but enough parking.

We went here for the music and there were two hen parties celebrating. The ladies started dancing among themselves and with guests. Charming.

We ate in the bar area in a secluded niche that was very cute. The bar interior is beautiful with red wooden panelling and candles rendering it cozy. They make their own beer, called the Dooliner (a lager and a red ale), which is quite...More
