Located in the edge of the buzzy Village of Doolin Roadford House is run by a husband and wife team, Frank & Marian Sheedy. The couple is local to the area and has a wealth of local knowledge to share. Roadford Restaurant was awarded one of the top ten best newcomers in 2007 (Food & Wine magazine Feb 08) by Georgina Campbell and have featured in her guide since then. It has been represented in Sally & John McKenna’s Bridgestone top 100 Restaurants in Ireland and was awarded Top 10 places to beat the Recession and Top ten Chefs to watch in 2009. Either Frank or Marian is always on-hand to personally greet all of their guests and are only too happy to help their guests plan their touring days while staying at Roadford.

On the Map: The small village of Doolin is located on County Clare’s west Atlantic coast. The village is accessed via the R479 – a small country road that intersects with the R478 connecting the towns of Lisdoonvarna (to the north) and Lahinch (to the south).
People flock to Doolin from all over the world to sample wonderful, top quality traditional music in the local pubs. Until recently Doolin had only three pubs. There are now some new establishments on the scene but we recommend sticking to the old reliables: McGann’s, McDermots and O’Connor’s. Even at that you will be spoiled for choice. Each pub is full most nights with musicians and music lovers alike. Be sure to check out all three! The surrounding area has much of interest including the barren yet strikingly beautiful Burren region with, among other things, the 5,000 year-old Poulnabrone Dolmen. Also worth a visit is Doonagore Castle and of course the spectacular 650-foot high Cliffs of Moher, which are only a few miles from Dool
