An imaginative menu with extremely good service. The 2 guys who run/own this place deserve high praise. The food was great and the atmosphere relaxed

We are lucky enough to spend a bit of time in Liscannor every few weeks and we discovered the Doolin Cafe last year and we've been missing it ever since! Thankfully it's open again so I think breakfast there is going to be a ritual this summer. Great location, friendly and helpful staff and the food is just gorgeous!! Yummy.

Very nice and cosy café in Doolin village. I would recommend it without hesitation. Bonus points for attentive service and a menu that covers all palettes.

The Doolin Cafe has quite good food. It is a bit of a surprise to find in a small village like Doolin a "Cafe" that offers high end food, well prepared and presented. Additional plus: The chef is very familiar with cooking gluten free food as well, so even this special requirement was no problem. At the time we were... More

Amazing food experience! Fresh fish and scallops, amazing steak & a desert not to be missed. Go for the "Doolin Coffee" also. An amazing invention! Service was friendly and atmosphere was warm. Go for the 5 course evening dinner.

My wife and I made our way to Doolin after arrving very early in the morning. The room at our bed & breakfast wouldn't be ready for several more hours, so we drove around looking for a meal. The Doolin Cafe was recommended to us by someone in town. We arrived about 2 hours before the cafe opened, so we... More
