Second visit to Roadford House and equally impressed as I was the first time in 2010. Frankie prepares food that is delicious and gorgeous and uses local ingredients as possible. You feel as though you are dining in a private home but the presentation is that of a 5 star Zagat restaurant. Worth a trip from anywhere in Ireland and a must if in County Clare

Roadford House is the place to eat in Doolin. The Sheedys, Frank is the chef, Marian the hostess, provide extraordinary dinners, and make the entire evening relaxing and enjoyable. It's more than a dinner; it's an true Irish experience not to be missed.

My partner and I love our fine food, and on reading the reviews we thought we would give it a try (we were staying at Daly's at the other end of the village).
Marian is a charming hostess, who looked after us from start to finish. The welcome matched the magnificent food - highlights were a seafood starter and a confit duck and bacon main. These were followed by light yet luxurious puddings, and complemented by an excellent winelist. All in all, this meal helped to make an already wonderful holiday that little bit more special.

We didn't give this a 5 and didn't see what all the fuss was about the food was nice the service nice and it was expensive for what we've been used to. One of the pubs would have been as good

Excellent service, delicious food. The owners are part of the family that also owns Ballinalacken Castle and restaurant (another exceptional dining venue). The duck confit at the Roadford House is the best we have had (and that includes the duck at The Modern in NY City). Can't go wrong on any of their fish dishes. Wine and beer license only. Excellent value for your Euro.
