Roadford House Restaurant

Located on the edge of the buzzy village of Doolin, Frank and Marion Sheedy's smart contemporary restaurant is an oasis of calm - a place where everything is operated in a personal and highly professional manner.


A well-maintained exterior with attractive planting and plenty of parking makes a good first impression, and the restaurant is smart and comfortable, with well-chosen modern table settings hinting at the stylish cooking that Frank has in store.


Marion Sheedy is a skilled hostess and offers a warm and professional welcome, setting the tone for what is to come - fine dining at very fair prices, notably the set 'Value Menu'  which at only €24, is just that.


The menu, in the modern Irish style, emphasises the very best local food prepared in an imaginative way: superb Burren lamb and tender beef, sparkling fresh seafood (probably including organic salmon, farmed in deep waters nearby, as well as wild fish and crustaceans), unusual vegetarian options, seasonal vegetables, and to round off the meal, local cheeses and delicious classic desserts.


Everything comes to the table freshly cooked and in prime condition, and details, such as really good breads, are excellent - Frank Sheedy has a happy knack of choosing delightful accompaniments to his carefully sourced ingredients and he cooks with confidence and skill. You will dine in style.


The wine list is fairly short but well chosen to match the food, and keenly priced.

Seats 34; D served Tue-Sun (high season, call to check low season), 6-8.30pm (to 9pm at weekends). Value D €24, 6-6.45pm, also à la carte. House wine €20; SC 10% on groups 8+. Reservations recommended; children welcome before 7pm (high chair). Closed Mon, end Oct - 1 Apr. MasterCard, Visa, Laser. Accommodation also available. abbreviations
