Don't miss this if in Doolin

Stayed here in July 2014 on trip around Ireland and it was by far the best food we ate on our week away and we also had meals in Ballynahinch Castle and Adare Manor for our anniversary. Roadford was far better - a great husband and wife team, and we stayed in the B&B upstairs which was good but... read more

From the outside there is lovely stonework around the doorway, which is decorated with their achievements. There is also a modern feel to the premises. On entering you have lovely countryside views out the window, with loads of natural light filling the room, which we love to see. Far too many places have a lack of window space. Presentation here...

The food was great. We had 3 courses and they were all brilliant. Really good quality ingredients and well presented.

Great spot convenient for doolin cave, cliff of moher and Aran islands. Pubs nearby. We did not get to eat at the Resturant as we did not reserve...so reservation highly recommended! Breakfast was very nice and more gourmet than in other B&Bs (still traditional but with a twist). Functional and rooms.

A relaxed yet elegant dining experience; we had a wonderful evening at Roadford House. It was a perfect change from the pub food we'd been having in Co. Clare (which was also good, but we were just looking for something a little different!) My fiancée had fish and I had the day's special lamb, and both were lovely. We were... More

We can highly recommend the restaurant, dinner was delicious and we will return to sample more of the menu. Breakfast was equally enjoyable. Both dinner and... More

This is a wonderful place near the village. the food is out of this world with great service. Absolutely no complaints. My friends and I stayed for two evenings and it was lovely. This place is in walking distance of the villiage. I really loved this area on my trip .

Throughout our trip to Ireland we were determined to prove friends wrong that told us the food in Ireland was bland at best and terrible at worst. We looked for outstanding restaurants using a number of sources and the Roadford House was one of our favorites. We stayed at the B&B and ate in the restaurant in April, 2015. I... More

Very nice lady that runs this place. Kind, genuine and in charge of a very clean restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. All diners spoke with hushed tones which made for a very welcome change from the pub din and we certainly felt at home. The only caveat was the average food. Some dishes were hits and others were misses especially... More
