Fresh and Delicious

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.

Beautiful food and friendly staff. Great buzz in the place. Will go back. The seafood linguine was huge - lots of local fish - really tasty.

We really enjoyed our meal in Doyles. I had the prawn and scallop risotto to start, then monkfish with tomato and chorizo salsa. Both were divine. My boyfriend had crab claws to start then hake with a gorgeous sauce to compliment. The service was good and food came out promptly. I would highly recommend it. Bit pricey but it's in... More

We had the white wine mussels and chili garlic prawns to start. They were so good that we filled up on bread by dipping in their delicious sauces. Had a bit more room to split the seafood risotto, which was very flavorful (creamy, not too rich as some risottos tend to be). Somehow managed to fit in some toffee pudding,... More

We visited Doyles and I ordered the lamb, as I am not a seafood lover. The lamb was fall-off-the-bone tender, and my husband ordered the Seafood linguini and raved about it. The drinks were great, as was the dessert menu. Highly recommended!

We were in Dingle during the non-tourist time. Not many places were open and one of the workers at the Dingle brewery told us to try out Doyle's seafood restaurant. We had the Ousters and Thai style mussels. They were fresh and delicious!!! The seafood risotto was really good as well.

Arrived into Dingle late on Friday evening and wandered down to Doyle's about 9pm - no problem getting a table, service was exceptional! I had Calamari salad (a starter) with double fried chips as my main and my other half had Hake - both were the best we've had in a long time. Can't wait to get back there!

The restaurant was very busy indeed for a dreich February night so recommended to book a table. The food was excellent as was the wine. The staff however, although pleasant, seemed rather disorganised and our waitress not too knowledgeable about the dishes on offer when asked about them but would still thoroughly recommend the restaurant.

We walked by Doyle's several times over our 2-day stay in Dingle Town before stopping in for an 'Early Bird' dinner. Good decision! Nice wine and beer selection. Both our main courses (Hake & Salmon) were excellent and quite reasonable. The service was prompt and friendly, even with a full dining room.
