Excellent food,wines and service. I visited with a nine member family group - all of whom enjoyed the experience, ambience and service. Had been to Doyle's some years previous and pleased to see standards hadn't changed. Early booking was essential though you could be lucky. It is definitely worth a visit.

We ate at several restaurants in Dingle (including Ida's and the Chart House) and this was the best of the lot. Very nice atmosphere, great service and very good food.

My wife and I had dinner here twice. That's 4 meals in all. Three were outstanding. The fourth came with a starter of the best Chef's salad one could imagine. However, the entree was another story, steamed whole fish. The fish came drowned in a brown gravy that went well the vegetable topping, but simply awful with the tasteless fish.... More

Great seafood restaurant in the middle of Dingle town. Make sure you book before you get to Dingle as it can be very busy especially on weekends. Wonderfully prepared and presented seafood, and the staff are very friendly.

After reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor, I was worried that Doyle's might not live up to expectations. However, the food was great, as was the service. I only wish my stomach was a bigger so I could have eaten more. The seafood was fresh and the meals well presented. This was ll backed up by the incredible flavours.... More

In summary, 1) Delicious,full of flavour, fresh, well presented seafood . 2) Friendly attentive staff. 3) Excellent relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant. 4) Decent portion sizes. 5) Prices are on the expensive side but still inline with other restaurants in the area. Well done.

Food was pretty amazing, cocktails not so much. Really enjoyed the seafood risotto. Worth a visit if you are in Dingle.

On two consecutive nights we experienced excellent service and wonderful seafood meals. We ate from the early bird menu which is good value and offers a wider choice than many other early bird menus in Dingle. Although some of our choices carried a supplementary charge. the overall bill was nevertheless very good value for money for such a high quality... More
