    Very disappointed with my visit last evening. We were put sitting under a speaker and had to ask to change to a different table. We asked if the music could be lowered and were told it couldn't go any lower. The bread was stale and my wife's scampi was a small prawn covered in a too much batter. My burger was ok but nothing special. When we complained to the manageress we were told 'sorry about that' After enjoying numerous meals there over the years we will not be returning again in a hurry.

    4 of us were staying at Doonbeg Golf and decided to head in to Doonbeg itself for our evening meal. The welcome, the table service and the food were all exceptional. A very relaxed atmosphere and the staff certainly know how to look after customers. I’ll be back someday.

    Everything was great. Stand out for us was the food. The wings were great, the crab claws plenty of garlic butter to be mopped up with the infamous Morrissey’s bread. Mains we had the steak (juicy and cooked perfectly) and the best dish of the night the SEABASS every flavour amazing.. music in the bar afterwards with a few cocktails and pints of creamy Guinness. Good experience overall

    Every course was to die for. Fish tacos were sublime as well as the chicken wings. Had the sea bass and scampi mains and they were all without fault. Can't wait to return.

    Service is lacking and slow. Asked for water and a bottle was plonked loudly down on table. Was almost finished with bowl of soup before the bread was served. Later, was asked how everything was by hostess, who looked away while speaking and didn't even listen to our answer while still looking away. The Scampi was hot and fresh, but way tooo much batter. The Sea Bass dish was EXCELLENT in every way. Outstanding flavors. At end the head person spoke with us for a while. She was very amenable and pleasant; a real asset to the restaurant. Overall, enjoyable and a nice evening.

    We had a lovely meal but a few small things: No bread served with the chowder? No finger bowl provided with the chicken wings and no extra napkins for same? White wine was not chilled but server brought me ice when I asked for it.

    Excellent restaurant if you are in the area and staying at Doonbeg. Everyone was very friendly and the food was delicious. As I have seen in other reviews, the crab claws should be at least one of the appetizers, they were excellent. The rest of the meal was outstanding. Staff was friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend Morrissey's

    We went there for lunch . The location is very nice . My eggs benedict and the soup of the day were good , we had just to complain about the avocado eggs because the avocado salad was a little bit too salty. But we really appreciated how the manager solved the problem. This is the right way to manage it!! Great job . If we had the chance we will for sure come back ❤️. Thank you

    Our second time back to Morrissey’s this year and we were not disappointed. The food is just so nice and cooked to perfection. The staff are so nice and always check in with you throughout your meal. One of our favourite places to eat now.

    Looking forward to Morriseys under new management, but have to say overall was disappointing. Having arrived water was on the table and was luke warm asked for a different bottle and the girl told me she put it In the freezer to chill.... meanwhile 10 minutes later water arrived and a glass of ice. Not much difference. The legendary morriseys bread never arrived even though it was given out at other tables. Had the fish tacos. wrap seemed stale, chewy and hard. Fish main was not much bigger than the taco. And the smallest portion of chips in a basket. Salad a few leaves and half cherry tomatoe. Looking forward to our favourite desert "Eton mess " not available on the night. Much Improvement needed. within an hour, 19 potential guest were refused with the main front room not in use. Wouldn't have happened in Hue's day..

    Morissey's has long been a great place to eat in Doonbeg. It still is, but the menu is now catering more to easy fried items. We have been there twice in the last 2 weeks. First visit my fish of the day was excellent. A unique dish that was not fried, but had the fish paired with great sides and wonderful flavors. Service was very good, despite the restaurant being fairly busy. Second visit was last week, food again was good, but the choices on the menu are limited. We had scampi, which was fried shrimp with a lot of breading. It was good, but heavy. We also had the crispy tacos. Basically mini fish and chips. The taco's fish was fried, they were good. Service was prompt, food was hot. Morissey's is still a great place, but seems like more bar/pub type food than before. Saying that, we will still come back, but just less often.
