Just returned from a six night stay at Keane's We stayed in one of their self catering units which had everything we needed for our stay. There is a small bar with a turf fire,locals and tourists mingling together, a very welcoming atmosphere, there is a small shop onsite to buy essentials. The most outstanding thing about Keanes, without a... More

There's nothing bad about Keane's and in fact it is charming in a kind of weird way. However, reading the incredibly effusive and gushing reviews I am utterly at a loss as to why we did not receive the 'outstanding 5 star food' nor the 'amazing' welcome from the family (although Imelda, non-family, was particularly delightful). Bar being asked what... More

Stayed two nights here and were made very welcome and got to meet most of the owners family and grand kids. Every effort was made to make us cosy in our room which was more of an apartment than a bare room. Breakfast was lovely and hot and there was plenty of it. Would go there again.

Booked through a Groupon deal. It was very cheap so was not expecting too much. The welcome we got was amazing. We had a bedroom in the self catering part & with that came a sitting room with a small cooking area, fridge, kettle & toaster. We got helpful info of what to do in the area. We had a... More

Stayed here for 5 days with my husband and 3year old daughter. We had a ball. Loop head is a wonderful place to holiday with plenty to see and do with small children. The accommodation was a little dated decor wise but this didn't bother us. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The family running it were lovely- couldn't... More

stayed at the Oyster bar for a week, absolutely brilliant, lovely couple running it, couldn't do enough to help us, and the steak cooked by Michael was the best I have ever had, nice clean studio room, plenty big enough for the two of us

Having been to Keanes oyster bar on a few occasions and really enjoying the friendly atmosphere and great food, I decided it was the perfect location for an intimate 40th birthday location. Nothing prepared me for the surprise I got on the night. Keanes pulled out all the stops with preparing an extensive fixed menu that had something for all... More

My wife and I stayed here late last October/November. The owners couldn't have been nicer and more welcoming. The accommodation and food were both excellent. The bar with it's turf fire and friendly locals was just like a touch of the real old Ireland I remember from my youth. The location is perfect, away from the crowds and yet within... More
