McGann's is one of the best known pubs in Doolin and it lives up to its reputation. It is almost always crowded but perseverance is rewarded with what is justifiably called the best fish and chips in Ireland (and the world) and I'm not a big fish n' chips fan, but I ate the whole thing!
There is always music and if you can't find a seat, and they sit anywhere, stand for awhile and something will come up. Music usually begins around 9:00 unless there is an early group as well. You can try arriving early for dinner and staying for the music which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the beer.
If you drive by watch out for people in the street. It's only a two lane road and narrow at that!

We really enjoyed this place! The service was great (especially enjoyed the sweet school girl who delivered our meals). We came back 2 days in a row we enjoyed this so much. The Mars cheesecake was to DIE FOR. Best fish and chips I've ever had. The chips are seriously amazing. Great beef stew. Great vegetarian meal.

We had an evening meal at this pub and were greatly impressed with the professional and speedy staff.
Our meal was fine although I have never had mashed potato in Irish Stew before but it was tasty and my companions enjoyed their food.
It is very busy with both tourists and locals including family with young children.

The smoked salmon was excellent, while the fish and chips and the beef stew was very good. Glad we went.
