Good music

Irish pub food and lively crowd. Music was also good. A mix of tourists and locals made it a good place.

We were looking for a bar with music in Kenmare while traveling down the wild Atlantic way and discovered this bar by chance. The live music was incredible and the atmosphere was even better than I expected from an authentic Irish pub

Our dinner here was fine, but it didn't really stand out in any particular way. The steak was good, but the pasta didn't have enough sauce. There are plenty of places to eat on this street, so if you see something else that looks better, go for it.

The food is really good but the chips are a disappointment. The waitress who took care of our group was great nothing was to much trouble, really excellent service. The music on the night was a little loud though

I liked the centralisation of the place, it's easy walkable access to all other food and entertainment establishments, and there were plenty.

First, I loved the ambiance of the pub. It was dark, cozy and decorated with all kinds of old photos, paintings, candles in old whiskey crocks, etc. The music was nice, not to loud when we were trying to eat, but still fun. Dinner was very good. I was surprised at the quality of food in a pub but i... More

The service was excellent but the food was very mediocre. A goat's cheese Panini had a minimal amount of filling and the pasta dish was dried up and unappealing.
