Didn't dine here as I only stopped in for a pint out of curiosity. I'm glad I did! This is a lovely proper old fashioned Irish pub offering good craic, good stout and a good atmosphere.

Great food, excellent servers and an excellent value. The fish and Cottage pie were excellent. Located in City Center with ample street parking. Won't disappoint!

We spent a wonderful afternoon in Kenmare and were fortunate to find this pub at the recommendation of some locals. I am not usually one to order red meat, but I thought since we are in Ireland I should try the cottage pie, and I am so glad I did!! I enjoyed eating it so much I couldn't stop smiling... More

The resteraunt is a good option for the typical pub fare. During our stay, it was one of only a few resteraunts open. Relaxed atmosphere and not rushed at all.

Happened on this pub when looking for somewhere for lunch yesterday; and delighted we did. Sat beside the fire, enjoyed lovely food and welcoming atmosphere. Will return next time we are passing through.
