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

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.

I made a reservation via email a few weeks before our visit to this great restaurant in Doolin for 6 people on our very first evening in Ireland. With Marion Sheedy as our host, we enjoyed wonderful food, a hearty Irish welcome, and a great evening for all. The Rack of Lamb and the Hake fish entree are standouts as... More

This was our second visit to the Roadford House. The food is exceptional but not pricey. The service was excellent. Plenty of time for great conversation with the owners or your guests. A must place to eat if in the Doolin area.

Our group had the pleasure of returning to the Roadford House for a meal. It never changes. Marian is the best hostess, Irish hospitality at its best, and Frank's meals are always top notch presented with flair. We love going there whenever we're in Doolin. It's a beautiful restaurant with great views of the countryside. We all chose the scallops,... More
