By far the best breakfast we had in Ireland

We traveled all over Ireland for our Honeymoon & The Doolin Cafe by far the best breakfast we had. The food, coffee & service were incredible. We highly recommend stopping by on your way to the Cliffs of Moher!

The Doolin Cafe offers a well thought out menu (full or half portions of all evening meals) with fresh quality ingredients, in a homely rural setting. The Cauliflower, cheese and mustard soup I had during our visit was a perfect combination of fresh C'flower, cheddar sharpness and just a hint of mustard.

We loved our meal at the Doolin Cafe. It was our first meal after arriving in Ireland and it couldn't have been a better welcome -- five different entrees, all delicious.

Lovely atmosphere! Fabulous irish coffee. Our server, Amy, was delightful. It was open until 1030pm, making it great for late arrival like ourselves from sightseeing all day! Jen and Joe from Chicago!
