O'Donohue's is the quintessential Irish pub, great food, and even better company. A must visit for anyone traveling to or through Fanore (check ahead for seasonal hours). Our trip to Fanore resulted in our making arrangements for a trip back!

My recollection from last year is that they only serve food during the summer months. Might be best to call first, or stop in Doolin or Lisdoonvarna for lunch. I'm with you, I'd prefer to eat in Fanore!
