McDermott's has the best pint of Guinness in Doolin, for sure. Irish music every day and good food. Friendly staff and lots of space. A must if you visit Doolin!

If you wan the Real Irish pub, you will find it here! Certainly not fancy, just as authentic as it gets. Trad music most nights, and it's REAL trad, not tourist crap!

Located in the middle of nowhere, this typical irish pub is the place to visit. The service is very good and you are very welcome. The food is good with a lot of selection. If you have time and not the driver some wiskey testing package are available. I strongly recommend to stop in this pubb.

Of all the pubs, this ended up being our go-to during our few days in town. It was busy, but not too crowded, the food was good, there were lots of fun locals who spoke to us, and the music was amazing. Our last night there we were amongst an Irish family celebrating and they were SO FUN. It was exactly what we went to Ireland looking for. TIP: sit at the bar if you want to meet locals. Or pick a larger table and offer to share.

We had a great time at McDermott's listening to Irish music and having a few pints. Pretty good family place i'd say. We did eat one meal there and that pretty average, but even when we ate elsewhere, we came back to McDermott's for drinks and entertainment later.
