Knowing this place had a good TA ranking, I tried it for a light dinner. An Irish stout, and truly wonderful seafood chowder were perfect. The 2 different breads/butter were the right touch to go along with the chowder.

We stopped here just for a quick snack and decided on full meals. Very good value, and fresh well prepared food. Well recommended. Friendy staff. Only bad point was that it was a bit slow to get our food once the order was taken but not too bad.

I visited here back in August with a couple of my old school friends (1 who is a food critic) and we could not have been more happy with our waiter. I have never met a young man (Curtis I think) so professional but yet so relaxed and calm. The restaurant was full and a queue of people at the... More

We had a fabulous lunch of fish and chips. The dessert of warm chocolate brownie and ice cream was to die for !!

The music drew us in from the street and we stayed to listen and have dinner. It was a great decision. The place is nicely decorated and immaculate -- colorful and pleasant with a different vibe than the surrounding pubs but still Irish to the core. The food and drink were both excellent and the service warm and friendly. It... More

I stopped in at Davitt's just to have a quick cup of tea and get out of the rain a couple of afternoons ago. I sat down at the bar and the lovely server brought me a small pot of tea, and a surprise plate of biscuits to go with it. She chatted with me here and there as she... More

While walking through town decided to get a reservation for the evening. We were not disappointed. Food and service was very good. The restaurant really filled up which made the sound level increase. Located in the middle of downtown.

A change from the usual pub fare in Kenmare, cod must have been straight from the Atlantic down the road. All 4 meals arrived within a half our and perfectly cooked. We sat in the window which had lights which were very bright and attracted small fruitflies switch them off please.
