I truly love this place! Best mussels in the world, you can't beat the service and conversation. There were a number people there, and no one had an empty glass. We enjoyed visiting and look forward to coming back!

We had a wonderful lunch at O'Donohue's. Our large group sampled everything from fish and chips (fantastic), seafood chowder, crab claws in melted butter, mussels and even burgers, steak and chicken gougons. Everyone loved the food and the atmosphere. Service was good and the views of the Burren and the atlantic were spectacular.

We would highly recommend this pub to anyone traveling... More

An absolutely incredible pub on the Coastal Road in Fanore, Ireland. The food is out of this world for pub food. Beautiful, artistic, inexpensive and of the highest quality. We had better food there than we did at several high end restaurants in Dingle. Please rate this place. It it totally worth a visit.
