Spent both nights if our stay in Doolin here. Their music was great. People were very friendly. The bartender coke was a treasure. Food was very good. All in all a great place to hang out.

We were here over the weekend. Food was a bit pricey for the quality and quantity of the dishes served. No one checked were we happy with our food or if we needed anything else. Service could have been better.

We had 2 meals here and they were awesome. Frankly, I didn't expect this level of quality in a Pub - but they have the BEST fish & chips in Ireland, London & Scotland! The entertainment was also excellent.

Our family of 3 walked right in one day and had a little wait the second night. Didn't notice coach parties, just crowded because of the music.
