We were five people getting something to eat before heading to the cave. The pub was very full and extremely noisy, with impersonal service. One of us went for the special combo, with pasta and dessert, but afterbshe got her pasta she was told the dessert she wanted was all gone. So she was stuck with pasta only which turned... More

Had drinks and dinner here. Had to wait longer than the 20 minutes promised but the music and drinks were wonderful so time passed quickly. Robbie was our waiter and he was just terrific. Had good suggestions for us and made us feel pampered. There were 7 of us and the food was excellent and prices were reasonable.

After a day on Inisheer and a boat trip around the Cliffs of Moher, the food and friendly staff in Fitzpatricks topped our day. They catered for every taste bud and in particular the kids. There was live music in the bar\lounge. Would definitely recommend

We went for the lunch buffet on a Monday. The food had obviously sat out for a while as it was being kept warm and already drying out. My pasta was overcooked and the sauce dried out. I had crusty bits from the heat below that kept the pasta warm and the air above that dried it out. Hubby's chicken... More

We ate a few meals at Fitzpatrick's Bar. We especially enjoyed the noontime buffet selection and the totally "obscene" desserts! The staff was very accommodating and cheerful! The decor was lovely and all was very clean.

This bar is perfect for an evening spent with your significant other or with friends! Wide range of beers, good food (well, we did't order any food, but it looked delicious at the next tables :) ) and good atmosphere - especially in the evening. Local traditional bands come to play on a daily basis. The atmosphere is uniquely enhanced... More

We had a great first dinner in Doolin at Fitzpatrick's. The music was superb, and the food good and plentiful. Service was excellent. Make sure to go hear Foolin' in Doolin when you are there.

The food was alright, but I would never visit again. The reason was that the service was incredibly slow and we waited well over an hour for our food. Starter was ordered but they brought cuttlery and then forgot it somehow and finally brought our mains. They claimed it was a mess-up in the kitchen. The desserts were incorrect too.... More
