I vist Doolin each year. It is, by far, my favorite tiny town in Ireland. And, for the past three years, I have returned to what has become my favorite restaurant.....the Roadford House.
First and foremost, the food is superb and the chef is an artist in its presentation. I can't find any room for improvement. I especially love their mushroom soup....absolutely delicious.
The atmosphere and service is impeccable. Marian, the owner hostess, is always friendly, helpful....and entertaining. This year was my brother-in-law's birthday so we planned ahead and asked if they would accommodate us with a cake for dessert. At the end of the meal, the Celtic music changed to a low-key version of Happy Birthday and in walked Marian with a beautiful cake with candles lit! And, I don't need to tell you that the cake was awesome - chocolate with a great mousse filling. Yummy!
As a special treat for dog-lovers, you get to greet a beautiful retriever named "Beans" on your way in or out of the restaurant - well-mannered and friendly. This was our faovrite dining experience while in Ireland. My advise is: Do not miss this special treat!
