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.

Eight of us wandered into the restaurant on a Saturday night. Received good service and really enjoyed the food. Served quickly and with a sense of humour.

Food was average. The only reason we walked in this bar was for the live music. The a sign out front stated music at 7:30. That sucked us in long enough for a meal and a pint.... Music still had not started at 8:15. Average.

This is the classic local Irish pub. I've never been disappointed in the food and they have a good selection of drink. Live music most nights in the Summer. There are a lot of pubs to choose from in Kenmare. This one is worth a visit.
