Second time visiting here, and food was wonderful as usual! Loved the great selection from burgers to pizza to traditional "Irish" foods. I had the seafood chowder all 3 nights as it was superb! Bar service is just as good. We were traveling with our children and it was their favorite as well for the variety!

The service started off friendly but within minutes we had been approached by 3 staff asking if we were ready to order. The food was delicious although expensive for essentially pub grub - it arrived really quickly and again we were approached during our meal to see if we were finished.

Nice food (garlic bread, pizza with Irish cheese, fish and chips, beer lamb stew...). Often busy but nice Irish music every evening!

At ours first night in Kenmare, we visited this place and we just had to come back the day after, fantastic service, great food, the atmosphere was really cozy.

Had lunch here and it was average at best. Food was not freshly cooked but reheated, vegetables overcooked and soggy. Fish over cooked and bland. Would not return again.

We had the seafood chowder and a salad with wonderful Irish brown bread. Nice way to relax having traveled a fair amount on a different side of the road.

Great atmosphere bang in the middle of Kenmare. Great pint but got Murphys instead of Guinness :). Pasta dishes are a bit pricey for a pub and you'll get charged nearly 3 euro if you ask for extra garlic bread.

We had lunch here while staying in the area. Good food and friendly staff. Both the chowder and the cottage pie were very good. and of course the Guinness, well, it's Guinness.
