Overpriced basic food.. Was there for lunch during a group tour for a quick lunch. Chowder was lukewarm/mildly cold, and salmon was hard. Beer (Dooliner) was ok. All in all, mediocre cafeteria food for restaurant price..

We had dinner at Fitzpatrick’s two nights in a row. The food was excellent both nights. The vegetarian burger was so good I had it both times. It was the best veggie burger I’ve ever had.

Good wine list. Friendly atmosphere. Good standard pub food. Music. We judged it the best pub meal in Doolin.

Had dinner here tonight, very happy with our meals, oysters, crab and salmon caesar salad, and bbq pork ribs, all shared which was no problem to the very pleasant staff. Very busy tonight, well done guys (and girls).

The service was good here, but the food was buffet style and had been sitting there so long that it was dry and cold. It was a beautiful stop none-the-less.

We both had a tasty fish chowder, then my husband had the polenta-crusted fish and chips, which was enormous with proper homemade chips. Frightened by the size of the mains I opted for a second starter, a really tasty crab and smoked salmon salad that...More
