“Great Meal at Doyle's”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

My girlfriend and I visited Dingle for the first time on May 14th. After a recommendation from a local, we decided to eat at Doyle's. The atmosphere is cozy and unique and the service was wonderful. Our server grew up in Dingle and was very helpful and honest with his menu and drink recommendations. All of the staff were extremely friendly (as was everyone in the town). My girlfriend and I go out to dinner all over Boston and New England. The seafood risotto was the best we have ever had, hands down. I had the monkfish which was just as delicious. We had the mussels and soup of the day (carrot and coriander I believe) for starters and they were also perfect. Thank you for a great experience.

“excellent food and service, great ambiance”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

The ambiance in this restaurant is great -- brick walls, a large fireplace, and interesting artwork on the walls including a large photo of Dingle before the streets were paved!

The food and service were both excellent. I started with prawns, my husband had the carrot-coriander soup, and our friends shared the crab claws. For entrees, I had the black sole, my husband had the turbot and our friends had the lamb shank and filet.

Everything was beautifully presented, especially the lamb shank.

We were too full for dessert

At the recommendation of our tour guide, we had our first dinner in Dingle at Doyles. We enjoyed it so much that we returned on our last evening. The food was delicious and the staff we met were really friendly. Highly recommended!

“Best Meal in Ireland”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

This was my favorite dinner in Ireland. Thai mussels were an incredible starter and the seafood risotto was to die for. Just wish it was less than 5,000 miles from home.

“Best Meal of the trip”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

No wonder that this place is #1 in Dingle. It was everything you want-Fresh Dingle Seafoor,superb service, excellent choice, and great atmosphere. In MAy there was no need for reservations, but imagine that in season it will be necessary. Great wine list. Was in Ireland for 10 days and this was the best I had.
