To find a restaurant of this caliber in Doolin is a huge win. This is a breath of fresh air and offers a nice break from pub food. Cullinan's offers a fresh and local menu in a delightful setting. We were constantly surprised during our 20 day journey to keep finding quality restaurants and Cullinan's is right up there.

While staying one night in the guesthouse, we enjoyed a fabulous dinner in the restaurant which was pretty much fully booked. The seafood chowder was amongst the best on the west coast, there were so may other choices that looked inviting, pity we were there only one night. Prices are on the high side, but this is what you pay... More

Don't be fooled by this quaint town's appearance, Cullinan's served up some incredible food with a wonderful view. Scallops were absolutely melt in your mouth! Wonderful service too. Make a reservation to avoid missing out!

We were treated to a delicious dinner accompanied by very nice French wine and served by a most excellent wait staff. The dining room is very attractive and offers a stunning view of the surrounding landscape. The menu was limited which I'm sure allowed the chef to work his magic on all the offerings. It was so good that we... More

We recently traveled from the US to Doolin for our daughter's wedding. Cullinan's was highly recommended for a reception dinner for our wedding party of 13. They did not disappoint. It was wonderful!! The food was delicious, the presentation and service was superb. Thank you Carol for making the day even more special!

We arrived very late on Friday around 9pm. Luckily we could get a table. I had two glasses of the most delicious french white wine that I have ever tasted. The food was amazing. I had the hake. I knew from the main course that everything on the menu was going to be amazing. I decided to have a dessert,... More

The food and presentation was beautiful. We had a (disorganised) family birthday dinner. I had the seafood chowder and the scallops - really tasty, as were the garlic potatoes. The seafood chowder was really good - and wasn't cream or tomato based, really had a lovely flavour. The restaurant also did their best to deliver a birthday dessert and candle... More

Very charming location and we just stopped in for a late afternoon pot of tea, but when they mentioned the soup of the day: carrot & ginger with star anise, we had to have a bowl. It was heavenly! My sister had the baked cod and vegetables and said they were outstanding. We had the raspberry brownie, which was just... More
