      I’ve waited a year to write this review. My family’s experience here was so bad, my mother asked me not to write anything g to wait a year and if I still felt like writing, then do. Well here I am. Last august myself and...several family members stayed here. I booked specifically because I have a dog and my sisters family have a dog. I spoke to Kieran on a couple of occasions prior to the stay and he could not have been nicer. Or more accommodating. So then we visit. My mother and sister and daughter were there the night before I arrived. Myself. And another sister her children and 2 small dogs arrived for dinner. There were 10 of us for dinner. Some had good food, some had great food, one had an ok main course. But we were all in agreement about the scallops. Consequently the next day on check out we all advised the waitress of our thoughts. On principle I refused to pay for them but paid a 20% tip on the. Rest of the meal. 30 minutes later I’m driving up the road with my mother brother in law and sister. And Louie the dog, and the phone rings, and it’s Kieron. And he is in a rage. He could barely speak, foaming at the mouth. He was on speaker and I advised him I was with my family driving along narrow country roads. But he want having it. He was disgusted. What did I know about scallops? What was I expecting. Scallops are supposed to be served cold. And raw? Nobody’s ever complained about them before. I never told him my sister had a dog. Your whole family were disrespectful. (They’re the absolute opposite) How dare my sister write a bad review on booking.com) On and on he went. My mother was really upset. She noted the man was clearly in a rage. I advised him I could not discuss my sisters review as I did not write it. I advised him he’d no business being in business if he could not respond to critical feedback. I had to cut him off. It was so upsetting. When I got to Kinvara. and dropped my mother off I rand him back. He said ‘you’re alright, I’ve calmed down now’ I told him that I was delighted for him that he’d calmed down. But I had not..... You remember it Kieron. The worst dining and accommodation experience I’ve ever had. August bank holiday 2020. All the rave reviews and there’s something altogether different underneath. More

      If you are looking for something special This is a must when visiting doolin. Something other than pub grub. The atmosphere is fab and the food first class. The dining room is well spaced out without being too obvious. The raspberry soufflé is divine.

      This is IMHO a top class restaurant. We had been in its predecessor years back and it was excellent too. However, there is a new broom and a new brush to make Oar Restaurant a very memorable dining experience. The decor is so peaceful and...restful. You can just sink into those chairs and let yourself be looked after for the evening. I had beef carpaccio for starters and my husband had scallops. I had salmon and scallops for main and my husband had lamb. I had caramel parfait for dessert. Everything was cooked and presented to perfection. We couldn't find fault with anything. The owner had a little chat with us before leaving and we liked this. Makes one proud to be Irish when one visits an establishment of this high quality. More
