Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sometimes I wonder what the chef would have been thinking. I ordered the serloin steak medium but I got it more well done. It had a large fat edge which needed to be removed. The sidedish was interesting but dis not fit to the steak...at all. To many different flavours, baby onions what for? The wine was to cold and obviously did not have enough time to breathe. The place was very noisy. Yes, it was my fault. I could have complained directly and could have picked a later time for dinner. But I was hungry.More

Me and my partner and her daughter stopped today after walking the beach and we decided to pop in unfortunately they were fully booked but the supervisor was able to fit us in for two hours. We had crab claws for starters and steak and...halibut for mains along with dessert and it was absolutely delicious. The environment was warm cosy and light and the staff were a delight to deal with. Totally blown away. Well done to all can't wait to go back! ☘️More

I was so disappointed with the 48hr slow cooked short rib of beef. I couldn't cut it initially (steak knife provided) then even when I suceeded in cutting it, I couldn't chew it (I have all my teeth!) These things can (but shouldn't) happen and...I would always be understanding and not make things difficult for my fellow guests on a celebratory night out as its as much about the company as the food, however it was the lack of any explanation or apology that disappointed me the most - totally unacceptable from the chef.More

After swimming in the nearby White Strand one evening we were famished and decided to try and grab a takeaway on our one and a half hour drive home. Passing thru the village of Doonbeg, we came across a takeaway, which is part of Tubridy's...Bar & Restaurant. It advertised outside "Fresh Fish & Chips". We had to try this. Fillets of Fresh Hake battered in front of us and then cooked to perfection and served with Chips and Tartar Sauce. Really yummy! We will be back!More

We arrived in Donberg on Tuesday on the way back to Doolin with food we had bought at the only open restaurant, a Kebab place, since inexplicably and unexpectedly all restaurants in that town close on Tuesday and Wednesday. I walked into Tubridy’s and asked...the proprietor if we could eat the food we had brought with a Guinness. He could not have been more kinder and more hospitable. Our host had inherited Tubridy’s and had expanded from a single room to a fine dining restaurant with patio and lots of amenities. He and his only competitor deal with the Tuesday/Wednesday closure by one opening on Tuesday, his neighbor, and Tubridy’s on Wednesday. Our think the hospitality was genuine and will be available to all.More

Fantastic dining here. The Prawn Laksa was sublime and the rest of the food was delicious. We were well looked after by Susie and the rest of the staff. Great atmosphere in the restaurant. We will return.

The staff at Tubridy’s really know what ‘Cead Mile Failte’ means. Myself and my daughter were left stranded in Doonbeg due was an error in our booking accommodation dates. With two dogs in tow it was going to be impossible to find an alternative, however...the staff rallied around and got busy making calls to find us a place to stay! Everyone got involved, special thanks to Clara who found us a bed for the night. We are so so grateful and thankful for the warmth of the Tubridy’s staff in Doonbeg ❤️ ⭐️ Had food from their take-out as we were too early for the restaurant. Really good quality and can be eaten in the outdoor area where you can also take your four legged friend 🐾🐶 Next visit we will definitely make a booking. Note to others: it is a popular spot so make a booking and don’t be disappointed 😋More

We had a 7:30 p.m. reservation. Our table was not ready and we were told to wait in the bar, which was very noisy and dirty. After 30 minutes we went back into the restaurant and told our table still wasn't ready. A bit later...we were finally seated. We waited a long time to get the wine menu and another while to order the wine and another while to get the wine. The fish pie was the only good thing of the evening. The chicken dish was bland with overly smoked accompaniments. A very sad experience.More
