Lovely food

We were a family group of 13 from age 3 upwards. There was a good choice of food for each of us, even two different menus to choose from. The service was attentive and relatively quick. I gave 5/5 on the basis that I thought it was a touch on the expensive side at €280, but it was explained... read more

Visited here to attend a family function. It was a freezing night but the pub was really warm and cosy. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful. It was very much home cooked food and not gourmet. Second helpings offered. The main bar was very busy and there was a lovely friendly athmosphere in the... More

Great pub atmosphere. Dined here with husband and daughter while visiting Ireland. Husband enjoyed his fish dinner. Pasta was tasty but chicken was a wee bit tough. Tried to order a special meal for my daughter who recently finished chemo for a brain tumor. Nothing special, just chicken tenders which they had on the menu with spaghetti for chicken Parmesan....

We recently spent 10 days traveling all over Ireland (north/south/west/Dublin) and Teach Dolmain had the best seafood chowder of any of the places we had it. So good! We also were there for the trad music night. Great fun! Lovely location as well.
