We made reservations late and the restaurant was packed when we arrived. The food and service was excellent despite how busy they were. I would definitely go back.

We had a long day around the Burren and were looking forward to our table that we had booked in The Roadford House Restaurant, to celebrate one of our groups birthday. There were 4 of us and we all agreed that we enjoyed one of the best meals that we could remember eating out in a long time. The ambience... More

We had dinner here the evening we stayed in Doolin. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. It was as good as any restaurant in New York City. Sophisticated, yet simple and elegant, the food's farm to table freshness was highlighted by perfect modem cooking by a great chef. The place is run by a husband and wife team. She... More

As a party of four we dined at this restaurant having searched for recommendations of TripAdvisor. Marian greeted us at the door and took our coats before escorting us to our table. She was a gracious hostess with a gentle sense of humour combined with a high level of professionalism. Our food was stunningly presented and tasted superb. All three... More

We stoped there because it was 5 minutes walk from our B&B and had a really good dinner. The seafood courses were excellent and elaborated. The service was also excellent but not especially friendly.

Thanks to trip advisor reviews! It was our first visit to Doolin so we were 100% relying on trip advisor. It was a cute little restaurant. All of us were very satisfied with our food and dessert. Perfect portion, deliciously cooked. I would love to go there again!

Beautifully prepared, fresh seafood (the best I had in Clare) all served by really friendly staff and the most warm and welcoming host, Marian. The atmosphere is intimate and charming. The seafood medley was perfect in every way. The desserts were sublime. What more can I say. There is a reason why this is rated as Number 1 in Doolin.

Frank Sheedy is the culinery chef, and Marian Sheedy is the hostess of the Roadford House Restaurant. We express our warmest regards to the Sheedy's for their hospitality, and culinary creations including Irish lamb, chicken, and salmon dishes. The dining room is charming with Phillip Morrison art work. Their wine selection is excellent. Consider their desserts. We had 3 dinners... More

Excellent restaurant! The owner, Marion, greeted us and made us feel right at home. Her husband is the wonderful chef. Everything was delicious! My husband had the Thai fish broth and rack of lamb. I had the potato soup and crabmeat appetizer for an entree. And the desserts were amazing - a must try! We had the lemon curd custard,... More
