We visited Teach Dolmain while staying at a nearby B&B (Avlon House). The meals were delicious and there was plenty of choice, the waiters were  attentive and friendly. Would happily return. (Tip for non-irish: it is not pronounced in English, we tried getting a taxi here pronouncing in English. Oops!)
