We went in to meet friends for drinks, on tasting the Guinness which was sharp I returned it to the bar to be told tersely ‘there’s nothing wrong with that’ . . . . followed up with the other member of staff saying ‘we have been pouring it all day’. Now I know what a Guinness should taste like and... More

My troupe first went here for a nice lunch of traditional Irish fare which was very enjoyable and next we came here in the evening for a taste of traditional Irish music. At lunch the food was good with excellent Guinness Pie. The pub has a good atmosphere with welcoming staff. It is one of the best in a village... More

Attracted by the lamb stew listed on the board out front, we were not disappointed. It was tasty and plentiful, and went very well with our afternoon pint of Guinness! A good atmospheric pub, as well.

Servers running like wild trying to serve all of us, every seat was taken and we truly enjoyed the pub while we waited. Had the fish and chips and enjoyed every last bite. Our waitress was a bit stressed but settled once all were served.

The traditional Irish musicians were the big draw here, and many evenings this was the only "happening" place in town. Great place to hear music and enjoy the Irish pub experience. Picked up a few good CDs too. Basic pub food, service decent, prices average. We ate here twice, and stopped in for the music/drinks three times. Stick to pints... More

A great pub experience! Good food and atmosphere. We had salads, pizza and dessert. Our server was busy but kept us happy start to finish. We enjoyed excellent live Irish ballads and bought the CD. Clearly a popular place with locals as well. It is noisy but that is what we expected. It was getting even more lively when others... More

It was first time in the kenmare, we were very pleased with the service. We seated outside on the sidewalk I had a pint of beamish and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Highly recommend it.

We had Sunday lunch at O'Donnabhain's recently and found the food to be top quality and one of the best bar lunches I have had in ages. Try the lambs liver which was exceptional. Well worth a try. Also the waitress that served us (Scottish Accent) was very friendly and informative. She recommended the soup for starters and it was... More

We (3 of us) stayed in the B&B and lunched in the pub on our first day in Kenmare. Atmosphere was nice, staff was attentive, and the food was typical pub fare, but good. Spent the evening in the pub listening to the live music. Had a great time sitting at the bar. Nice atmosphere and everone was happy and... More
