We wanted a place to dine outside and watch the passerby's... so we took a table at Foley's. Had a decent pasta dish with chicken and excellent garlic bread, but since we were outside - it was kind of like "out of sight, out of mind". Anytime we needed anything, we had to go back inside and get someone's attention.... More

Everyone has different views of what a meal should be but mine is that it should be well cooked, good flavoured, well presented and at reasonable cost and speed. On every front the meal I recently enjoyed in Foleys recently completely hit the spot. I ordered pork sausage with mash and onion and I got the best version I have... More

Stopped by for lunch with a large group of friends. We were accommodated immediately , staff very friendly and attentive, tables Elena. Some of us shared to get a smattering of local fare. Fish and chips were excellent, crispy, light and not oily. Shephard's Pie was delicious. Salmon was tasty but overcooked to me - I like mine medium. The... More

Although we did not eat here we spent two evenings in the bar and found the quality of e entertainment was excellent. Just what we were looking for in Ireland. A mix of traditional folk and modern songs and singers.

Foley's is a good place for a drink or a meal. Even when busy the service can't be faulted. The ladies behind the bar work extremely hard and the owners are great folks. Outdoor tables under the newly installed awnings a nice place to sit to enjoy the sunshine or escape from the rain.

We stayed in Kenmare for three nights and returned to this restaurant/pub each night because of the wide variety of food. Not a posh (or expensive) restaurant, but friendly wait staff and great food.

My wife and elderly parents enjoyed our visit to Foleys. All four meals were excellent quality and the service was friendly and welcoming. I would recommend a visit.

A v good example of a place that has long since given up making any effort. It clearly still does well due to being on the main street in a popular tourist town. We went here for a family lunch, so ordered a wide variety of food from the menu. Everything except the fish and chips was bland. The tables... More
