We visited lately for lunch on a Saturday. There was a bit of a rush as a lot of people arrived at the same time and the man serving us obviously couldn't handle it. He was grumpy to the point of being rude. I just had a toasted sandwich - it was fine but the thin sliced pan made it... More

This place was great! Very busy when we went (dinner time) Fantastic live music (the man who played the fiddle deserves a million dollars) Great drinks, solid meal. The dessert options were really tastey (I got a lemon dessert, very yummy) Fun atmosphere, really nice service.

Popped in on passing and immediately found the place to be cosy and liked the look of the menu. Starter was huge and could nearly do as a main course and then the main was lovely and easily the nicest freshest fish I have ever had. Highly recommended. The pricing was just right too.

While dining on our delicious foods, we were pleasantly surprised by a pair of mucisicans who played traditional music. It was grand! We highly recommend this gem.

The staff are very friendly and chatty. We got some great advice about a walk we will do. The food was delicious, great selection and the best seafood chowder we have had so far. Warm and cosy.

The place was packed where other spots weren't but we like the look so much we waited. The Irish stew was great and the staff was very friendly. The night we were there they had some traditional Irish entertainment. Skip the fine dinning in town...this is the spot!

This pub was on the Main Street, very convenient to our hotel. We were there in late October, not high tourist time, on a Thursday night and pleased to find they had live music at an early hour - 7:30 ish. The Irish trio were wonderful; the food was outstanding & the service was great & very friendly. There were... More

Being a regular visitor to Kenmare, visited this pub mid week (when most other restaurants/pubs were closed for food). Great pub, good food, good service and attention, enjoyed immensely. All food reasonably priced, had the fish and chips, and my wife had the steak and onion pie (a bit too much onion). A very enjoyable evening. Atmosphere great. Would recommend.
