My husband and I visited Fitzpatrick's for lunch several times during February 2013 and absolutely fell in love with their roast sirloin and pork lunches. My mouth is watering just thinking of their Traditional Irish Stew. All lunches were served with a heaping helping of mashed potatoes (like my grandmother used to make them) and a vegetable. For about 12... More

This is an atmospheric, delightful pub and restaurant. We ate at the bar and enjoyed the company of our warm and chatty bartender who served us the most delicious fish chowder we have ever eaten. We also highly recommend their wonderful short rib stew and generous bowl of local mussels and perfectly prepared french fries. The evening we were there,... More

This pub wasn't as packed as another local pub. The bartender was Awesome. The food was excellent and the entertainment was what we expected. This was our spot for the two nights we spent in Doolin.

The good was really good and the atmosphere was great. However it was so overpriced compared to the neighbor pub which served better food for cheaper. If you do end up here and have a sweet tooth, get the sticky toffee pudding. Delicious. Burger was dry, but the mussels were good.

A great little pub, very popular with good Irish music. We arrived at 8.30 pm to find the bar almost full. A guitarist played and sang Irish tunes till 9.30 after which a 3 piece Irish band continued with lively music. Great atmosphere but service at the bar was a little slow. We had some light meals which came promptly... More
