“Authentic Irish Pub”
Review of Doolin's Irish Pub and Cafe - CLOSED

Doolin's Irish Pub and Cafe
Cuisines: Irish
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We only had drinks on a Friday night at Doolin's, so we didn't get to test the menu. They had some live music which was ok. Having been to Ireland recently, I was curious how authentic the bar would feel. They really did have that covered as the decor was really spot on. The drinks were good and the bartender was very friendly. I wish we could have eaten here because the menu had some great Irish options on it.

From the outside, you'd never guess that this nondescript office building has a wonderful Irish pub in it. Inside, you'll see nice touches like old Irish beer and whiskey signs, posters, and even a tin ceiling, all around a cozy bar. Staff was very friendly, drinks were good and food was good as well. We've been back three times in the past few weeks and will come back again. Nice change of pace from the faux Irish chain restaurants. Doolin's is cozy and charming.

I stopped in to have a lunch on a Saturday at this new Irish pub in Durham. It was a good find. It's only been open since March. The server was very friendly and helpful. I ordered the Rasher Stacker with authenic Irish bacon. My companion had the Doolin's burger. We were both impressed with the quality of the food. Our server had also mentioned the owner had hired a staff member from Ireland. So, this is about as authentic a place you will find in the Triangle. We will definately be going back here! It's over near Target in Durham.
