Russell’s Seafood Bar
We named our seafood bar in honour of the Russell family of Doonagore, whose quiet, but rigorous dedication to Irish traditional music, across several generations, has helped spread the artform across Ireland, Europe and the rest of the world. Probably the best known members of the family, brothers Micho, Packie and Gussie, learned their craft through their mother and other local musicians, refining it and driving the art forward in their own unique ways.
The Russells inspired us because they grounded their art in the local. Their music showcases the beauty and uniqueness of Doolin. But despite the local focus, the spirit of their music has a universal and timeless appeal. At Russell’s Seafood Bar, we too want the quality of our ingredients, primarily sourced from within a 25km radius, in locations like the Cliffs of Moher, to inspire those from around the world who eat here.
