“The best pub grub we had in Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2012

...and for a good price. Close, crowded, yet friendly and reasonably priced. The pub (not the B&B, which we didn't stay at) was filled with both tourists and friendly locals the night we were there (including one self-described leprechaun on a pub crawl who introduced herself there!)

You order both food and drinks at the bar, and even as packed as it was, the food came pretty quick. Fun place, good food; best Irish stew I had that week.

We went for a birthday party, the pub was very nice, lot of space, live music, nice atmosphere.
I had a sore throat and the bartender helped with some hot water.
Very nice live place to go for drinks at the weekend.

I am going to write this review for my own experience. I ate there and had the beef stew. It was EXCELLENT! My wife had another selection which was good, but not great. My choice was cheaper and a whole lot better.

Great accommodation at a great price! Rooms are large and well-appointed. Not luxurious, but better than most pubs I've stayed with and certainly larger. The price for a single is only 7 EUR more than sharing, so is definitely worth the money. The pub itself is a great example of your classic Irish pub, complete with great live music, good drinks, and wonderful food. I highly recommend McGann's to anyone who will be visiting County Clare or Doolin specifically. I'll definitely stay here should I come to County Clare again! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Room Tip: If traveling with friends, spend the extra 7 EUR/night to get your own room

The family that runs the pub was very friendly. I tried lamb for the first time and ordered the lamb shank. It was the most delicious thing I had ever had. The music was also very good. Only down fall is that it is so wonderful it does get crowded but the more the merrier right?

There is music here every night of the week in the summer.
Having visited Doolin many times over the last 20 years, I can say that the best night to be had is in McGann's on a Saturday night. You may catch him occasionally in another pub but on Saturday nights, the best local singer, Ted McCormac, sings in McGann's.
This is also a great place to eat at anytime.
