Traditional pub food with some local favorites

Overall, decent food and service. Traditional Irish pub food with with some local favorites. Pizza & local Salmon was good. We were seated right away and waited on promptly. Pricing was pretty comparable with other family dinners.

The restaurant side of Foley's is quiet, and early in the evening not too crowded. We liked the seafood pizza so much, we had it 2 nights in a row.

We recently ate here and found the food to be sub par and expensive. Prior to visiting Kenmare we were in Kinsale and Dingle and found the food to be expensive but excellent. However, Foleys Restaurant and Bar was a big disappointment.

Despite the fact that I have perfect use of both my legs I floated into fooleys. Even though the bottles are different colours they managed to mix up regular coke(the refreshing beverage) and diet coke , I was NOT amused. I decided to go for what they called a "burger" but was more like a rustlers burger thrown on a... More

Well it didn't start well when we ordered our drinks. The girls have been drinking diet coke for years. What they served us was far from diet coke and I imagine came out of some pump behind the bar. The waiter tried to say it was and then proceeded to pour a real diet coke out of a genuine Coca... More

After driving from Dingle, stopped for a break in Kenmare. Just ran across Foleys. Wonderful staff and service. Ran into some Canadian friends. Sat outside...so relaxing people watching and catching up!

Bit of a wait for 7 people but that's understandable. Lovely bar with friendly staff. Good selection on the kids menu. Lasagne would have been better with more salad or a small portion of garlic bread. Overall very good and will definitely be back

Loved this place! We stopped in here many times and found the food & drink delicious, the customer service wonderful and warm, and the musicians delightful. Plus free wi-fi and yummy seafood chowder!! What’s not to love.

The restaurant food was good and the onion rings are Absolutely Excellent! Besides the comfortable bar area, there's an attractive whiskey bar attached. Our server was Joslyn who was very friendly and went out of her way to help us with our cell phone problems.
