This pub has been in Doolin for over a hundred years. It is worth a stop and stay. The music and Guinness is exactly as it should be. So much character and the people are amazing. We will return to our family in Doolin. Than you McGann's!

McGanns is a great Pub with good live music. At times it can be extremely crowded when one or more tourist busses show up. You might even dont get a seat. If you are lucky and its not bursting of tourists its a great pub to visit.

Well the heading says is all, but bears repeating...The Music was as good as can be, the food (Try the fish and chips, burgers, bangers and mash - all top notch and reasonably priced!) and the service were all fantastic! We were treated to some completely unexpected surprises. Sean McLaughlin and his friend Jerry singing solo one night, with an... More

While staying in Doolin the night before heading to the Cliffs, we stopped in for dinner on recommendation from the owners at Twin Peaks B&B where we were staying. We could tell the place was filled with local & tourists alike as we stopped several people hugging the bartenders goodbye. The server suggested we sit at a little table that... More

My family and I stopped here for a meal and a pint before heading to our hotel in Ballyvaughn. We enjoyed a nice meal sitting by the fire (good fish and chips) and we would have loved to stay for the music which begins at 9;30 pm but because of Doolin's remote location and winding narrow roads in the burren...

We wanted another pub experience following another pub the night before, and we chose correctly with McGann's. We arrived early to get a good seat which happened to be the table next to the musicians. The food and beverages we had were excellent. The service was slow because the place was packed. No worries - the bar, about 10' away,... More

We got in so late that the kitchen was no longer open, but they took pity on us and cooked us up a grilled ham & cheese sandwich! What amazing hospitality! Great traditional Irish music and it was very warm and inviting inside. It was truly everything that I ever hoped a traditional Irish pub would be. The bartenders were... More
