This bar is part of the Hotel Doolin but is connected by a corridor which runs through a retail shop or by walking around the corner. We were pleased to hear when checking into the hotel that there was this pub and that they were having live music that night, since music was the reason we planned a stop in Doolin. We enjoyed listening to the solo folk singer playing that night. He sang the song “Back Home in Derry” which uses the melody from “The Wreck of the Edmund Fizgerald”. I have since found that the lyrics were written by Irish hero Bobby Sands while he was imprisoned. We both ordered soup, I the fish and my wife had vegetable. It was served with ubiquitous brown bread served in Ireland but this was the best we had on our trip. I also went non-Guinness by ordering local Eight Degree Red Ale and Doolin Ale. Later in the night I ordered a bucket of chicken wings and thought these were some of the best prepared wings I have had. They were very crunchy on the outside although not heavily breaded. They did not have a hot sauce on them because this is not Buffalo or even the States. They were served plain and I would like to see the chef develop a sauce that could be identified with this town or country. I also got involved in some lively discussions with some locals and fellow tourists and had the pleasure of being introduced to Crested Ten Whiskey which is not available in the States
