I had dinner here one evening during our stay in Kenmare but my companions had dinner there one additonal time. This is no extraordinary food, but plain pub food. However, I doubt that you get better food in another pub. I ordered the lamb stew which was quite all right, even though maybe a little tasteless. My husband recommends the... More

We ate here several times & were never disappointed. Live music was great. Grab a table on the street & take in the ambience of Kenmare.

This is a very nice pub and been here twice with family from England, but will never go again, The manager is rude to customers an very short with staff he shouldn't have the job as manager, as it's all about customer relations an he needs a lot of work in that area. The food is very good I will... More

Our waitress was entertained by our lack of knowledge of bacon & cabbage, which my husband duly ordered so as to remove this knowledge deficiency.

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!

Great menu, good service, and lovely food. They have cracked it, an all round fantastic place to dine even if slightly pricey.

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. One waitress tried to remove our sons plate while... More

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