“Wonderful selection in County Clare”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We strolled over to Roadford House from our B&B and enjoyed a lovely dinner. The staff was very helpful and the selections quite creative. We especially loved the lemon curd with meringue parfait.

“Absolute gem.”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

Hands down the best meal in Ireland. The duck is their signature dish & worth a flight over the Atlantic. & The panna cotta I had for dessert was a revelation. For goodness sakes, if you're within driving distance from Doolin, make the trip in -- you'll be thankful you did. The quality, flavor, & presentation of the dishes merit the Michelin star, as does the superbly kind & efficient service.

“Don't arrive hungry”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

I stayed in the West for 6 days last week. I ate at the Roadford House last Wednesday 11th April. The food was certainly tasty; fine dining one might say, but after walking for 5 hours around the Burren I was far from satisfied. The meal was very small, the main course organic salmon was delicious, but it was more so a finger size piece of salmon. I am glad to see that others have found the restaurant very impressive but I did not, nor indeed my friend. It was also expensive for what we received. I went to another restaurant later that evening to receive a proper size meal. Please state in future that your portions are very small, regardless of fine dining or not.

Thank you for your review and while we are delighted you found our food tasty and delicious we are disappointed that you left feeling unsatisfied. Our food is modern Irish cuisine with emphasis on fresh local products prepared daily. Our Value Menu ( which you availed of) is a choice of two courses for Euro 24. The vast majority of our customers have found our food of very high quality and value as is evident from the other reviews on this site and also on Roadford House Restaurant site.
I personally attended your table and enquired if everything was to your satisfaction and regret that you felt unable to voice your complaints to us directly. We are sorry that we did not meet with your perception of a "proper size meal"
