It was superb!!!

Had dinner and breakfast and both were fantastic. The menu, while being as the name of the restaurant would suggest was primarily fish based but also had excellent meat choices. My daughter is now able to say that Ireland can cook meat as she had the best medium rare beef she has ever tasted and she has lived in Texas for her entire seventeen years!

Also if you get a chance stay and enjoy the exquisite breakfast.

Our friends were visiting Ireland to celebrate their daughters Graduation and on the whistle stop tour of Ireland chose to book a meal in Cullinan's Seafood Restaurant. We were honoured to be invited to join them for the tastiest meal I have had in a long time. The selection was perfect and if you are not a fish lover there are plenty of other choices from meat to vegetarian- at least from what I observed o the menu. The food was delicious and the presentation a piece of art, and there was time to relax and enjoy, no rushing, no gathering plates to move us along, simply time to enjoy every bite and have a chance to chat between courses- A perfect balance in my opinion. As this restaurant is situated in the picturesque area of Doolin with stunning views and beautiful garden space I would recommend booking at least one week in advance- My husband and I will be sure to recommend this restaurant to others in the future and will return for a meal.

We had a very memorable dinner. The food and the wine were delicious and the atmosphere overlooking the river was very romantic. The owner looked after us extremely well and we would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant.

We didn't pack dress clothes. I felt a little under dressed. No one there seemed to care so I quickly warmed to the place. Everything was delicious! You MUST have dessert so save room.
