Pretty food but poor value for the money. For a main course I ordered the "Chicken 3 Ways" - if it was presented to the table as an appetizer at TGIFridays it would have been laughed at - 1/2 a spring roll, a portion of a breast and a single wing (lovingly cut into the thumb and wing portion -...

This was our most disappointing meal of the trip and also one of the most expensive. The fish i had was overcooked and had very little flavor and the salad had an overly sweet dressing. When I asked for green vegetables with my meal the owner said it was not possible but then brought them later but made me feel... More

What an exquisite restaurant and a genuinely excellent experience. A group of five of us dined there in July during a week's break in Doolin. The menu is just mouthwatering. The specials on the day were just excellent. The crab salad starter special was divine. On the night all 5 of our party opted for an exceptional fish platter main... More

We chose to have our reception dinner at Roadford House and were just blown away by the food. Marian and her staff were excellent hosts, and Frank (her husband) was one of the best chefs I've encountered. They even baked us an AMAZING chocolate biscuit wedding cake. My guests are still talking about the food and my wedding was almost... More

This is our second trip to Roadford House this year for dinner. We found this gem last year and always look forward to our visit. The hostess and waitress are very pleasant and attentive. We received excellent advise on the wine. The food is sublime. Every mouthful is a delight. The meat platter for starter is of quality that is... More

We had a beautiful meal at Roadford House Restaurant. The food presentation was fantastic, it is set in a beautiful location and the atmosphere is relaxing and friendly. There is a great menu that is well priced. I would highly recommend trying this place if you are staying in Doolin :)

If you are in this neck of the woods and love gourmet food the Roadford Restaurant should be on your list. Beautifully appointed restaurant, friendly staff, fabulous food the scallops are to die for. Only very minor hiccup and it’s not even a complaint is that the coffee was scalding and not brewed at the correct temperature which always takes... More

My daughter chose this restaurant for her wedding reception on July 4th. The meal consisted of a sample of appetizers including a fried goat cheese ball, salmon along with the main dishes of steak, silver hake, and chicken three ways. All of the guests loved the food. Marion was a gracious hostess and not only was the food excellent, but... More

Just might have been the best dinner of a two week trip to Ireland. Not only was the food excellent, but the presentation was artistic.
