We ate there one night and the place was heaving. We did manage to get a table and were served very quickly. The food was a bit more expensive than other places we had eaten but the live music made it a very enjoyable evening

Been here three months, seemed to have spent half that time yesterday waiting for our check for a Coke and a beer. Particularly frustrating since there were more staff on site than customers.

Visited Doolin in February 2017 with husband and two children. Fitzpatrick's Bar was warm, friendly and welcoming. A welcoming fire was just the thing we needed after a chilly outing to the Cliffs of Moher. There were some local musicians playing some traditional music too...More
