Hotel Doolin's Fitzpartick's Bar, famous for it's traditional Irish music, lively sessions, thirst quenching pints and wholesome food is popular with both residents and locals alike. Fitzpatrick's Bar is as much a part of the vibrant experience of Doolin as it is of the hotel itself. With its polished panelling, natural stone and open fire it offers a calm and relaxed setting during the day while at night it transforms into a lively bar with entertainment. The Bar is split into two sections. Fitz's Snug is our cosy front bar with an open fire, ideal for relaxing with a cool pint whilst listening to our live Trad sessions.The much larger back bar is perfect for parties and live bands. There are a number of local and Irish beers available in Fitzpatrick's Bar including:•Eight Degree - Sunburnt Irish Red•Eight Degree - Knockmealdown porter•Eight Degree - Howling Gale Ale•Galway Hooker•Helvick Gold blonde Ale•Blackrock Irish Stout•Copper Coast Red Ale

Good food but hectic when you're on a tour bus.

Be warned, a good number of the major tour companies bring their groups here and the lunch period can produce long lines. It was over half an hour in line (we only had 55 minutes in Doolin) and then finding a seat was like waiting for a parking spot at the mall just before Christmas! I imagine... read more

We stopped here after we visited the Cliffs of Moher. I got the beef plate and my friend order the salmon plate. We both enjoyed our meal! It's really fast since they have everything already prepared, and you are served in a kind of cafeteria line. The prices are good for the quality/quantify of food you receive.

It does not feel like a hotel restaurant at all. They get 5 stars all around. Quality food, excellent presentation, friendly atmosphere. It is fine dining quality meets casual atmosphere. They have the most amazing mussels I have ever tasted. The presentation of the food is so original and very cool. The local musical talent is very good too. It... More

Local pub feel in a tourist town. Very simple straight-forward menu. Exceptional service. Amazing food. Warm ambiance. Don't walk by this place looking for something better in Doolin -- you will not find it.

We had just gotten settled in our B&B just up the street and the owners, as well as the nice lady at Tourist Information, had recommended this place for dinner. We weren't expecting too much as this is a pretty small town, but were we surprised! I ordered the Mussels (12.95 euros) and Hubby ordered something referred to as a... More
