Our visit was near perfect as on our previous visits, and Marian looked after us very well. Unfortunately there was a large group at one table who brought more guests along than they booked. Very inconsiderate and extremely noisy. That aside we dined very well and the taste of organic salmon, lamb rack, duck confit, desserts and cheese selection were... More

We had read great things about this place. We were very disappointed. We felt rushed. Started came out before we had even touched the bread. We were seated at a window and the view was of the neighbours bins. The food was fine but certainly not worth the price we paid. didnt feel relaxed at all in there.

Our innkeeper recommended Roadford and we are so glad she did. Marian greeted us and we were promptly seated. We shared a starter and then had the two specials for mains: lamb and seafood medley. Fantastic meals in every dimension: presentation, proper quantity, taste and the list goes on. Everything they use is locally sourced. My wife and I have... More

What more can be said about this wonderful restaurant. Our dinners of salmon and scallops were delicious as was the dessert that we shared...lemon curd/lemon yogurt sundae. A friendly, welcoming place.

We had a wonderful meal at Roadford House, the best we had during our 12 day stay in Ireland. This restaurant was highly recommend by the owner of the B&B where we stayed in Doolin, and we couldn't have been more pleased! The scallops and lamb were cooked perfectly. Highly, highly recommend!

This restaurant is tremendous. This was our best dinner, out of many fine dinners, on our 12-day trip. Marian showed us briskly to our window-table while her chef husband worked his magic. What was the speciality? "Everything is good," Marian said. She's to the point, and she is correct. We enjoyed chatting with her. Book a table, you will be... More

A great meal with a varied menu. Modern eclectic food, using local ingredient's and well presented. a little noisy but enjoyable none the less. Our thanks to Marian the owner who was friendly and smiling throughout even though she had to repeat the specials at least twice. Lovely meal, shared with friends. Try the lamb - highly recommended.

You need to have reservations, but you may be able to make them the day of your visit. This was a recommendation of our innkeeper add, boy was he right! The food was delicious, beautifully prepared, and very affordable. Service was also excellent. Our dinner with a bottle of wine, two appetizers, and two entrées was about $100. Also loved... More
