Beautifully prepared, fresh seafood (the best I had in Clare) all served by really friendly staff and the most warm and welcoming host, Marian. The atmosphere is intimate and charming. The seafood medley was perfect in every way. The desserts were sublime. What more can I say. There is a reason why this is rated as Number 1 in Doolin.

Frank Sheedy is the culinery chef, and Marian Sheedy is the hostess of the Roadford House Restaurant. We express our warmest regards to the Sheedy's for their hospitality, and culinary creations including Irish lamb, chicken, and salmon dishes. The dining room is charming with Phillip Morrison art work. Their wine selection is excellent. Consider their desserts. We had 3 dinners... More

Excellent restaurant! The owner, Marion, greeted us and made us feel right at home. Her husband is the wonderful chef. Everything was delicious! My husband had the Thai fish broth and rack of lamb. I had the potato soup and crabmeat appetizer for an entree. And the desserts were amazing - a must try! We had the lemon curd custard,... More

Roadford House was recommended to us by numerous friends and family members in Doolin and it most certainly did not disappoint! Soon as we arrived we knew we were in for a treat. The dining room was well set out and, although not the biggest of rooms we certainly didn't feel like we were too close to any of the... More

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.
