Seemed like a very popular place although we did not have to wait long for a table. I had the lamb which is sourced locally and it was excellent. This was one of the few places where we diverted from drinking Guiness and had wine for dinner and Dooly's does have a decent wine list.

I've had trouble finding a great steak since I moved to Ireland in 2013. This resturant tops the charts! My fillet steak was perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked, tender, and 100% delicious. The steak arrived with mash & mushrooms and also came with a side of veg -- no need to order a starter with the portion sizes here!

The staff helped choose a dessert for us and were very friendly and chatty, wanting to know all about our holiday plans. Exceptional restaurant worth every penny!

I had some guests recently visiting me in our holiday home in Co. Kerry last weekend. My visitors came from London, Chicago and India and included one vegetarian. A big ask and a big group as we numbered ten in total. I need not have worried we had an excellent meal and despite the restaurant being very busy on a Saturday night we had excellent service. I started with the crab cakes with a mango salsa and I don't say this lightly but they were the best crab cakes I have ever had,full of crab and not morcel of potato to be seen. One of the group had the seafood chowder again excellent I had a couple of tastes of that!! I had a fillet steak which was tender and full of flavour and another guest had the dry aged steak which she raved about. I would recommend booking in the busy summer months, I definately will be back before the summer is over!!
