The room was clean, but small and without any view. Shower was also very small, but clean. There is a kettle and coffee in the room which... More

We had a great night at Foley's! We ate in their restaurant. What a surprise to find baby back ribs in an Irish restaurant - they were outstanding!! My husband had their crab cakes as an appetizer - he said they were some of the best he ever had along with the prawns he had for his entrée. It is... More

Hi Chris K, Thanks for your review! We're glad you enjoyed the fishcakes and the pork ribs - they won't be leaving the menu anytime soon. Live music plays in Kenmare seven nights a week over the peak season and we try to inform guests upon check-in about live music around town, but should we see you again (hopefully), we'll... More

(A lot of other hotels in town do not open during January by the looks of things).The rooms were very clean, warm and welcoming. After checking in, we... More

I stayed in Foley's guest house last weekend with a group of girls for a hen party. It is very centrally located and the staff could not have been nicer and did everything in their power to accommodate the group. We walked straight across the street to lively music and craic and it made it easy for ladies who wanted... More
