Our family dined there during our stay and it was great. One of the best meals we had the whole trip. From the starters to the desserts it was impeccable.

To find a restaurant of this caliber in Doolin is a huge win. This is a breath of fresh air and offers a nice break from pub food. Cullinan's offers a fresh and local menu in a delightful setting. We were constantly surprised during our 20 day journey to keep finding quality restaurants and Cullinan's is right up there.

The seafood chowder was amongst the best on the west coast, there were so may other choices that looked inviting, pity we were there only one night. Prices are on the high side, but this is what you pay... More

Don't be fooled by this quaint town's appearance, Cullinan's served up some incredible food with a wonderful view. Scallops were absolutely melt in your mouth! Wonderful service too. Make a reservation to avoid missing out!
