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

If you are passing through Doolin, eating at Fitzpatricks is something you will not regret! This was the best meal we've had on our trip so far! We had the Cajun chicken with potatoes, carrots and cabbage. So delicious! We will be telling everyone about this place. So happy we found it! Thank you for the amazing food! We hope to be back! :)

Was advised to go to O'Connors for dinner which was good, couldn't fault it. But decided to dine in Fitspatrick's Bar on the following night. The waiter Barry was excellent, his attention to detail and knowledge of the food. The food its self was well above bar food quality and really should be a place to dine on your trip. The selection of music on both nights was excellent, but where isn't it in Doolin. And be sure to try a glass of the Dooliner beer. The only downside was the toilets of the bar were dirty.

Fitzpatricks is a must visit while in Doolin. We went on a friend's recommendation & we were not disappointed. Unfortunately they don't take reservations in the restaurant so we had to keep watch while having a drink in the bar , the place was really busy but the atmosphere was great. A guy was playing guitar & had a very pleasant voice so we really didn't mind waiting to get a table.
The staff were very friendly & helpful , service was excellent taking into account that the place was so busy. The sea food was delicious, i'd recommend the dish for two people which is great value. When we got back to the bar after our food the place was rocking. A great night !!!!

We got there just as a giant tour bus load of people worked their way through. Turns out the food was exactly what you would serve to a busload of tourists you knew you'd never see again. The "gourmet sausages" were hot dogs sold for 10 euro. Everything else is boiled and flavorless. Mash was cold and likewise flavorless.

Service was indifferent and not particularly helpful.
The bar had a nice, pubby atmosphere, but that only gets yousp far in Ireland, where everything has a nice, pubby, atmosphere.
