We visit Ireland every year and the Roadford House is always a favorite in the Doolin/Lahinch area. My dinner this time was a crab cocktail with a bit of chili seasoning, very tender baby lamb chops, and a great lemon/meringue/ ice cream desert served in a tall sunday glass. The owners acould not be nicer and the service was perfect.... More

My husband and I ate dinner here two out of the four nights we were in Doolin. We might have made it four if we had known about it before the end of our trip. The first night we were lucky to get the last table. Our proprietor at our B and B called Marian and asked for a reservation... More

We had eaten at 3 Pubs during our stay & wanted to try this wonderful restaurant. If you are in Doolin - you MUST make a reservation and do yourself a favor - you will not be disappointed. The food is delicious and the people serving you are simply wonderful! We had an excellent meal & wish we lived closer!

Doolin is very busy in August, packing them in tight. The Roadford restaurant, 5 minute walk outside town, is a welcome respite. Really warm and friendly welcome and great food. I had the Hake in Parma ham, delicious. Leave space for dessert. 10 out if 10.

Like the accommodation there is very little that I can complain about with the restaurant. The standard of service is great and the restaurant is well designed and laid out. The menu while not the most extensive is definitely varied enough to suit most tastes and while I can be fussy especially about my steaks and how well it is... More

Excellent meal, friendly service. I had the salmon. Susan had a sampler plate of five different fish. Both excellent. Opens at 6:00. Booking recommended. Owner recommended McDermott's for traditional Irish music, just up the street. We went the next night--outstanding.

I work in a hotel and was recommended to go to this restaurant by guests staying with us a few days before our trip. There were 7 of us and every single one of us thought the same, amazing!! Not one dish or class of wine was less than perfection! We had a range of the seafood platter, the scallops... More

My wife and I were staying at the Half Door which is 200 yards from this restaurant. We decided to make reservations here for our last night in Doolin. We were very impressed by the location and the evening dinner. We were met by Marian, the owner, when we arrived and were seated at a table for two overlooking the... More

The atmosphere was tasteful and peaceful. My two friends and I enjoyed every mouth watering bite while overlooking the magnificent view that surrounded us. The service was very good, and we were never left too long without food in front of us the fact that it was a small restaurant made meeting up with my friends more personal and cosy.... More
