We had booked into the camping nearby, and the person there suggested we try Fitzpatricks Bar, telling us to try the fish and chips. We arrived at late, having been touring all day, and were told that there were no tables available, but if we wanted to wait, they would be able to serve us. We were giving menus to... More

My daughter and I made a quick stop here for a meal, we were on a coach tour and were very happy to be served really quickly. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful and there was a lovely atmosphere here and in the beautiful village of Doolin.

The menu was excellent with a nice range of food and they also have a daily specials - fresh fish options were our choice of the day and we were not disappointed. A nice room - with a high ceiling - very comfortable surrounding - popular but worth the wait. Great staff!

Fitzpatrick's is an excellent choice for supper and an evening of traditional entertainment. The decor is charming. It has a nice selection of food with vegetarian options. It also has a children's menu that is reasonably priced. Prices are a bit on the high side but comparable to other upper end places in the area. One things that was difficult... More

Stopped in for dinner with family. They were able to accommodate our large group, and staff was very helpful and attentive. Ambience was great, food was excellent and satisfying! Local music available in later part of evening. Perfect stop in Doolin.

Everything at Fitzpatrick's was wonderful until... the fateful dessert, I'd love to give Fitzpatrick's a "5", and I would except for serious mistake with dessert that could have been more serious. Our daughter-in-law has a severe nut allergy, so we are always extra careful when we're out to eat. Our server (also a manager) had assured us that nothing in... More

Another place where we experienced great trad music. Service in restaurant was initially not up to our expectations (we were forgotten by the server who said she would be helping us and no one else asked if we wanted anything) but we eventually got a very good meal for a little pub!
