Music in Kenmare

What are the best pubs and restaurants in Kenmare for live music please?

We'll be there for a week starting Sat 11th Aug

About 10 years ago we went to a pub in the town, I think on a Sunday night, that had music and really fast dancing - not 'Irish'/Rieverdance style - and it was great, but I can't remember the name of the pub, any ideas please?

I was there last October on a Sunday and Monday night. Both night Foleys had music. It was just one guy but he was good. He did some traditional Irish songs,some American tunes. Very much encouraged audience participation.

Yes it was a great bar, we were there last night and the same one man show. He did a great job and Collin was a great bartender!

We're back from a great week in Kenmare. We found good music in O'Donnabhains, Coachmans, P F McCarthy and The Wander Inn. Plus a brilliant evening on the Wednesday at Brook Lane Hotel with music and dance from a local dance school.

Best traditonal music is in Crowleys, Henry St. If you want music as you eat, the other places have it. But for a genuine session, it has to be Crowleys.

There was no proper trad music in Kenmare when I visited in September 2018. Best to go to the likes of Galway!
