Straight out of a plot by "the Brain" of Pinky and the Brain, an insidious plan that if not to take over the world, to at least make beer lovers from all over the world come try a Dooliner, which, so far as I know, can only be found at Fitzpatrick's and a sister property in Claire County. Dooliner is,... More

Set in true picture post card Ireland Fitzpatrick's Bar provides a truly memorable experience you'll never forget and long to repeat. The friendly atmosphere and traditional Irish Folk music is vibrant, brilliant and at times evocatively haunting that will move you beyond words. 'An Ríl Díl' was the local band who played when I was there and the lead singer... More

Had a lovely meal there this evening. Even thought it was quiet and miserable outside the fire was lighting and there were a good few people in for dinner. The staff were a good laugh and very friendly and the food was amazing! Would recommend it to anyone

We stopped here during a journey to the Cliffs of Moher and we had a refreshing lunch. Good mashed potatoes, tasty baked darne of salmon and a crunchy roasted beef - and a very warming atmosphere. Highly recommended

We had dinner here for 2 nights and food is good. Very busy pub as has a function room and caters for hotels and locals. Old dated pub could do with renovations. Welcomed and facilitated for meals.

We stayed at the hostel across the street and this was the topping on the cake. Getting to walk to and from after some great beers was perfect. The hostel was fantastic btw... The food, music, bar and staff were all awesome. We ordered fish cakes that were absolutely my favorite dish in Ireland. The music was very traditional Irish... More

I was discussed to see recommendations for beer and Guinness on the food menues! It was something like" why not try this with a glass o guinness or something like that. The place does very well so they don't have to resort to that kind of noncense!!

After a long coastal walk and missing lunch - we just craved pub grub and fast! We were seated by the open fire, and it was far better than pub grub! It was really elegantly presented, and all tasted great! Very generous portions, and a fantastic atmosphere!

This was one of our favorite places to eat,I believe we ate there 3 times, we had beer and cheese pairing, seafood tower, and of course there own beer, red, and yummy the Dooliner. I wish I could get it here in the states. Let's not forget the unforgettable music. The service was great
