Creative and flavorful seafood

The menu has some Asian influence which is very well executed in items such as roasted whole seabass that was incredible. We had crab claws for starters which were very tasty, and my wife thought the seafood risotto was as good as you would find in Italy. Reservations a must as they turned away... read more

Nice bar on entry with a good selection of aperatifs. We enjoyed a port before dinner. I had the Monkfish which was very tasty in its own right but matched perfectly with the piperade and chorizo. My partner had the Seafood linguine which was full of fresh shellfish and smelled amazing. This place isn't cheap but it is definitely fine... More

Oh, this place was fantastic! We all had seafood and it was just wonderful, fresh, perfectly cooked, in a relaxed atmosphere. And the sticky toffee pudding dessert was amazing.

In all of my nine trips to Ireland and Dingle, I cannot believe this is the first time I've stopped into Doyle's! So well-worth the wait! And I'm happy to give it the best review possible--I've already dined there twice this trip! They have both Guinness and local Crean's beer on tap. They have more than half a dozen top-notch...

Our hosts at Devanes' Bed and Breakfast made reservations for us at Doyle's. The meal was just perfect. The service was great and friendly. It was the most expensive meal while we were in Ireland, but it was also the best. We had a seafood medley over linguine. Wonderful.

Many restaurants were closed on a Monday night, so we chose Doyles since it was open and in a convenient location. Our meals were good as was the service, but it was a little pricey for what you got. They even charged for a glass of water!

I love to go to an obvious fish restaurant and not get disappointed with a menu that doesn't live up to the restaurant's name. The place has a great menu offering fresh seafood dishes that makes you want to return to try a different dish.

Just toured Ireland with a group of eight people and all agree this was our best see food experience. Fishy Fishy in Kinsale was also great but Doyle's won our prize. Great ambiance, varied menu, professional staff.

My husband and I had an early bird dinner at Doyle's and it was hands down the best seafood I've ever tasted. I ordered the chowder as a starter and the seafood stew as my main. It was to die for. There was so much quality seafood--so much variety and different types of fish and shellfish, it was a delight... More
