We loved this place! We weren't here for very long, but the food and beer was delicious. Our tour group, Paddywagon Tours, brough us here for lunch. We ordered from a carver style menu. I believe we ate the seafood stew and fish bake (salmon and cod). Both dishes were very good and fresh. They have an award winning beer... More

the food was really good. We stopped and ate here enroute to the Cliffs of Moher. Was regular pub fare and a great experience for my 80 year old mother and 21 year old niece. the staff were really adept at catering to a crowd in a short space of time. I was impressed.

Surprisingly good food and reasonable prices. The fish and chips were fantastic and the desert presentation was of a Michelin star restaurant. Highly recommend!

This was the second time my husband and I stopped here for dinner. The service was friendly and prompt and the food was delicious as always. We started by sharing an order of mussels, and then for the entree I got the sirloin and my husband got the fish and chips. All was amazing! Never disappointed when we visit.

I am a vegetarian. . . my husband is not. We both loved it! Fitzpatrick's had a warm fire going after a cold day on the cliffs and some excellent local beers. The traditional Irish music that evening was the best we heard during our week-long tour of Ireland

Amazing seafood and mussels, crab claws, fish cakes and seafood chowder (see pic), fabulous service, no issue with kids in the pub. Great local beer. Great local character and conversation. There was also live music being played.

Stopped here on the way to Galway. We liked the atmosphere and my friend loved trying the local Doolin 's Red. We had the mussels, burgers and chicken sand. They were all tasty and presented nicely. The place wasn't overly busy the day we were there and there was no musicians playing. We were starving after having incurred car trouble... More
