Our group of four all had different meals and found the quality and freshness of the seafood to be of the highest standard, just beautiful !. Collectively we agreed this was the best meal we had in Ireland. Keep an eye out for the Shellfish risotto just superb. The staff were very friendly which all added to the experience ****... More

The black sole was very tasty. The Hake was also a winner. The best part was the friendly service and engaging hostess. She explained some of the customs in Ireland and how they can vary across Europe. Very helpful. Americans - tip as you would in the U.S. When in Ireland. Don't believe the conflicting information out there on this... More

We enjoyed our seafood meal at Doyle's. Nowadays it is rare to find places like yours how are able to serve fresh fish. Plates were well prepared and hearty. This meal will remain as a good memory in our lovely first trip to Ireland. Keep on serving fresh fish and in a simple way of cooking it! Thanks

we had a late start on dinner so we each chose two starters instead of a main meal. The fried oysters and shellfish combo were really good. Service was first class and there was no issue ordering starters instead of a main dish. Wine selection is small yet we were able to find one that worked. It was also an... More

We hadn't booked the table then we had to wait but it was worth it! The fish soup was wonderful, delicate , great. The salmon filet was of excellent quality and the dish well presented. The price is proportional to the quality of the food. I recommend Doyle's Seafood Restaurant!

After many trips to Dingle,this was our first visit to Doyle's and it will certainly not be the last. It was one of the most delicious meals we have ever had...from the basket of bread to the roasted salmon our children enjoyed to the monkfish with chorizo my husband devoured. But...the star of the meal was definitely the seafood linguine....... More

Our family of four showed up on Good Friday for early dinner. Even with no reservation the excellent wait staff fit us in and had the starters to the table in 15 minutes. Kids menu had REAL people food and not just nuggets and pizza. Somehow my son ate mussels...and the waitress's help show him how to open them. They... More

Doyle's was great. The food was really fresh tasting and very tasty. I had the salmon with ratatouille which I definitely recommend if you like salmon. My dad had the seafood pasta which was incredible looking and apparently also delicious. I loved the atmosphere too - upscale but not at all stuffy.
