I booked with Foley's for a stag of 25 for March 2014. I was dealing with Pat Foley on the initial booking and he was very accommodating and flexible throughout. There was no issue with changing room numbers and he gave us what turned out to be an very reasonable price. There was the offer of arranging dinner for the... More

From the minute we walked in it felt like home. Patrick and his staff are wonderful. Best food we had in Ireland. Rooms were perfect. Patrick is such a gracious host. He even helped us plan the rest of our trip. This will be our first stop when we return to the emerald isle.

The bartender was very helpful and got us a room quickly as we had no reservations. The room was nice. The only complaint which is no fault of the innkeepers is the loud bar scene on the street. We got NO SLEEP!. I guess we should have went out and joined them.

Stayed in Foleys Sat night the 8th Feb. It was a cold & wet day but the room was lovely & cosy. Modern & very clean. Has everything you'd need. Great price, paid just €79 for B&B, had a full Irish in the morning which was very good. Not swimming in grease like a lot of places!! Location is excellent!!... More

We stayed for 2 nights and received the most wonderful service in the bar/restaurant from John and Kira - the food was excellent. Generally everyone was very kind and accommodating and eager to please. Breakfast cooked by John was delicious and plentiful. The location is ideal (Kenmare is a delightful town). We wouldnt hesitate to stay again - the entire... More

Having felt somewhat pistol whipped from a complex business transaction I made my way to Foleys for supper and bed. Kenmare was lit for Christmas and I felt my spirits lift as I approached the high street. Foleys was warm and welcoming and I had a distinct sensation of coming home as I sat down to a delicious hearty meal... More

This was the cheapest B&B we stayed in during our holiday in Ireland. It is a pub with rooms above right in the centre of town. We arrived in the afternoon so were able to park outside the hotel for the night. We were also there in the low season so it was quiet in the pub. The room was... More
