“Savage craic agus ceol!!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

I go to Doolin bout four times a year and McDermott's is my favourite pub to partake in the consumption of a few beverages :) The music every night is excellent and there is always a great atmosphere about. Musicians take requests and often fuse Irish traditional music with Irish ballads and folk songs. The staff are excellent and even on the busiest night, the efficiency and pace of the staff is impressive. I can't wait for us to be back again :)

“A better offering this time.”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Last year I left a poor review for here. This time I found it to be very good, I enjoyed a very nice plate of food and a drink that was not overly priced too! A good spot and busy with usually live music.
