We enjoyed a very special dinner at Cullinan's during our recent stay in Doolin. The food was first class; both in quality and presentation. The restaurant itself has a wonderful view over the river. Perfect in every way!

Cullinan's did not disappoint! The dining room is small but very elegant and comfortable with beautiful views. The food here is excellent. Run by husband and wife (husband is the chef). We would come back here in a heartbeat.
