We have been eating at Roadford House for a number of years and can honestly say that each and every meal has been outstanding. There is always a great variety to choose from and the menu is never boring unlike other restaurants. Marion and all the staff are very friendly and very efficient. It is always a pleasure to visit... More

From the moment we walked in the door - pure hospitality. Marian's warm welcome and Frank's culinary delights started our amazing whirlwind vacation. The Goat Cheese appetizer was divine! I could have stayed a couple more nights, it was our favorite restaurant AND B and B.... Thank you for exceeding our dreams and expectations! We event bought one of the... More

Great food and service. Everyone started with the Thai fish Broth which was perfectly seasoned. You could taste every ingredient. The Herford Beef, Cod and Breen entrees were equally delicious. As much as I love Guinness, it was nice to have a craft beer selection and they were also very tasty. Service was great, attentive but not overly or rushed.... More

On a whim we decided to get out of Dublin for a night over the May bank holiday weekend. By luck we booked Roadford House and we are very glad we did. The guest room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and well-appointed. The welcome was unobtrusive, but very warm and genuine. We also booked the restaurant for dinner and it was... More

We had no plans to end up here. We just got lucky. Turns out, fate had decided to treat us to Marian's charm and Frankie's cooking. Unbelievable. To have such a warm, friendly and charming hostess, combined with some of the best food we've had was an unstoppable combination. Our rooms were lovely; light and large and airy, with views... More

Originally took a chance on going here with absolutely no idea of what to expect. The ambience & set up of the Roadford is something that's incredibly rare to find, something quite often only found in the comforts of our own home. From start to finish, from the service to the delicious food on each plate, the Roadford is not... More

We had a three course meal and everything was delicious. The service was great and Marian made us feel very welcome. Thank you for a lovely evening. If in Doolin I would recommend having dinner at Roadford House.
