We visited McDermott's a few times during our two-day stay in Doolin. The food was hot and tasty, drinks were cold and the music was outstanding. Our server was friendly and accommodating. Some of the best music I heard throughout my trip.

A wonderful way to spend an evening- a beer with friends while listening to informal Irish folk music . An objective suggestion -arrive early to get a reasonable seat/table.

Best Salmon dish was had at this pub. Quick service and a typical Irish pub setting. A busy venue and easily accessed by a car.

Our family of 3 walked right in one day and had a little wait the second night. Didn't notice coach parties, just crowded because of the music.
