Friendly staff, food quite ok, seats near the fire were promised, but not kept. Paying the bill was a bit adventurous, had to go upstairs, machine in pub was not working, But, allover, it was quite ok.

Great service, great appetizers, and of course good beer. We didn't have any of the mains...however, enjoyed the onion rings and garlic bread with a couple pints of beer.

Food was good and as well the traditional Irish music at supper time. But try paying the bill was extremely tough. I was with two friends and the waiter wanted me to pay for all of them. I said no. I was leaving and they were staying. He finally gave in and I was able to pay my bill after... More

Great little Pub with all the Irish you could want. Up stairs is a hotel that is very comfortable and very affordable. When I go back to Kenmare that is where I will stay. Comfortable setting with really good food.

The waitstaff were friendly and the prices were quite reasonable. There was a fixed price for two items; a main... More

We ate dinner at O'Donnabhain's and enjoyed it very much. I had the pork chop and my wife a salad. A few beers and we had a good night. Price as competitive.

We went to this pub twice because it was so cozy and warm. The food fare was fine and they do pour a nice pint! It was very relaxing and laid back. If I lived in Kenmare I think it would be my favorite pub.
