Cullinan's Seafood Restaurant

Fillet Beef at Cullinan's Restaurant in Doolin

Cullinan's Seafood Restaurant*

Multi-award winning restaurant in the heart of Doolin that we love going to ! It is quite small (which makes it even nicer in our opinion !) so reservations in advance are advised. They do great seafood but have other very tasty dishes too. Cullinan's official website :

Roadford House Restaurant*

Another great favourite of ours and award-winning restaurant in Doolin. They are located in Roadford (the other side of the village), near McDermott's and McGann's pubs, so you can easily catch some trad music after a delicious meal. Roadford House's official website :

Vaughan's Anchor Inn

This great restaurant is in Liscannor, only 10-15 minutes away from us, at the other end of the Cliffs of Moher. They are true specialists of seafood and we highly recommend paying them a visit. Try the local crab claws, they are really delicious. Vaughan's Anchor Inn's website :

Kieran's Kitchen @ The Roadside Tavern

Located in Lisdoonvarna (10 mins away from us), Kieran's Kitchen is part of the Roadside Tavern, a great local pub. The food they serve is traditional with a modern twist and it is a real delight. The Roadside Tavern's official website :

Wild Honey Inn

The Wild Honey Inn has a "modern bistro style" and they have also received many awards. They are situated in Lisdoonvarna, 10 minutes away from us. The Wild Honey Inn's website :
