Returned to The Sailors Bar again this year and was not disappointed. Superb food, large portions and reasonably priced. Atmosphere and view from window all add to experience. Great night.

Very good food but service is very bad. Servers are not too friendly, especially the dark haired girl. Not really recommend it, only for the food

I had the lamb stew, it was delicious! Servers were so friendly. A very cozy atmosphere and joined by some wonderful local musicians was a treat for the night.

Great Food, great service, what more do you need in a local eatery. My wife and I had the Hake and it was perfect. The kids had their favourite Chicken Curry and were very happy as always

The Sailors Bar is located just three miles from the picturesque town of Kenmare on the Castletownbere Road (R571). Come and experience a traditional Irish Bar coupled with great food. We have extensive outdoor seating overlooking the beautiful Kenmare Bay. All tastes catered for, seafood & steaks a speciality. A favourite spot with the locals....
