The Ivy Cottage, run by Frank and his staff offers an appetizing alternative to the pubs in Doolin. An eclectic menu is delivered with professional service, Irish craft beer and an awesome kitchen.

Hiked from the Cliffs to Doolin and stopped in for lunch. From the friendly service to the ambience to ultimately the Chowder and Blonde Ale, I will most certainly be back! A must for the hungry hikers or those just enjoying the village.
