Description: Hotel Doolin's Fitzpartick's Bar, famous for it's traditional Irish music, lively sessions, thirst quenching pints and wholesome food is popular with both residents and locals alike. Fitzpatrick's Bar is as much a part of the vibrant experience of Doolin as it is of the hotel itself. With its polished panelling, natural stone and open fire it offers a calm and relaxed setting during the day while at night it transforms into a lively bar with entertainment. The Bar is split into two sections. Fitz's Snug is our cosy front bar with an open fire, ideal for relaxing with a cool pint whilst listening to our live Trad sessions.The much larger back bar is perfect for parties and live bands. There are a number of local and Irish beers available in Fitzpatrick's Bar including:•Eight Degree - Sunburnt Irish Red•Eight Degree - Knockmealdown porter•Eight Degree - Howling Gale Ale•Galway Hooker•Helvick Gold blonde Ale•Blackrock Irish Stout•Copper Coast Red Ale

A very nice pub at the main intersection of Doolin. A short walk from O'Connor's Guesthouse. Sat in with the band one night and belted out my interpretation of "Further Down the Road." Told me not to come back until I knew all the words; which pleased my friends to no end!

This bar/restaurant serves a very good meal, whether you want a full lunch or a soup and sandwitch. It is obviously doing it well consistently, given the number of tourist coaches stopping off. They are well equiped to deal with crowds coming through, as there are no undue delays and the food is hot and tasty. The cost is also reasonable. All 6 of us enjoyed our break here, having had a very scenic drive from Galway city. On the day, it was a little cold for us to eat outside, but the seating facilities are there.

Quite a wonderful menu...started off with the cheese & beer tasting platter and then ordered the crab claws at the suggestion of the lovely lady at the tourist office just down the block. Really good food. To our delight, as we were finishing dinner, a group of musicians started playing probably the best Irish music I've heard. It's a great place for food, drink, and music just minutes away from the Cliffs of Moher.

Visited here on friday and we were amazed to see the queues of people for the carvery there must have been at least 3 coaches pull up at the same time and the staff all managed very well from the bar to the food . great pint of guinness here they have there own ale here as well. People from all over eating and having drinks bar man was efficent and friendly and obviously well used to dealing with large coaches of tourists great athmosphere in this pub we had only a soup and it was beautiful with lovely bread as we were going on the cliffs of moher cruise in the afternoon but would have loved to try the fish cake as it looked beautiiful. Great spot a must for anyone to go its only about 10 mins from the cliffs of moher so well worth the visit

We dined here with our three children on Friday 5th of April and had a fantastic meal. The atmosphere was lively and there was traditional music playing as we were getting ready to leave (which was lovely for the kids to just get a taste of it). We stayed just up the street at the Doolin Activity Lodge. The tourist office is right there as well so all of it is nicely located!
