Great Food

We ate here as a family of four, the food and service was great and great value for money, Bacon and Cabbage was great and so was the roast of the day which my son had. Very relaxed.

Great music! A solo musician with a beautiful voice was performing the night we were there. The pub has a lively feel. I loved the interior decor. One little lassie practiced her step dance and entertained us!

Super nice staff & owner. very busy place all the time- guess cause the food is good & beer is cold. Always live entertainment at night- rooms were clean- breakfast was excellent best white... More

I absolutely cannot visit Kenmare with popping in to O'Donnabhains for a pint of Murphys and a meal. The staff are amazingly friendly, the food is excellent and good sized portions. The outdoor garden is the perfect place to while away an afternoon after a heavy morning shopping!

We had an excellent meal here one evening. The place was busy but we only had a short wait for a table. We really enjoyed the food. Very tasty and good sized portions. There was live entertainment the night we were there.

Charming Irish pub with wonderful traditional irish food. Service was fast and the food was very fresh and plentiful. The Irish Stew was delicious and the restaurant was lively and friendly.

What a surprise this place is!! Right in the centre of this buzzing little town, O'Donnabhains has lovely helpful staff and the rooms are modern, light and spacious with a large bathroom. Also our room at the back was beautifully quiet. The breakfast was delicious and served by the cheery and efficient waitress. There is a separate entrance for guests... More
