Nightlife is what Doolin became famous for. I first struck on this village by accident many years ago. In those days the pubs openly flouted the drinking laws. I remember standing in one of the pubs at 4 O’clock in the morning, when the Barman refused to serve me as it was “well after hours”. He did add however that he could do an off-Licence sale. I enquired further if you thus exit the pub, and re-enter to consume my purchases. This seemed quite in order to him.

All three of Doolin’s pubs plan regular Irish music nights, usually every night. Even if nothing is planned musicians will often just strike up unannounced and play or jam together. It’s not exactly a hardship in an evening to visit all three of the pubs and get a feel for what’s going on.

    Great fun - I particularly enjoyed the caves tip and the happy memories of Father Ted and Dougall ;-)

    an interesting page about a special place in Ireland ! I totally agree about Ailwee caves beeing a waste of time, people should rather explore the Burren instead !!
