Can't go wrong at An Bonnan Bui

Working in the town there are a number of pubs to visit, but I always opt for An Bunnon Bui...friendly staff, great beer and great food. If when half empty (which is not often), there is always someone to talk to and make you feel welcome. Darren and his staff have excelled in every way!

We stayed in Cahersiveen while visiting family and heard of the bingo night and thought it sounded like fun to all go together! However, when we got to the pub we found a table, only to feel very awkward that we felt like we had taken someone's regular table (even though there were no names), but we carried on and... More

This is a dark place to eat. We had 5 meals, and they were ok. I really hate frozen chips and feel just by giving homecut chips makes a huge difference to a meal. The salad again can just be given a little tlc. The service was good but i wouldnt recommend it for food which seemed to be its... More

I'll start with the only positive. The manager/owner was incredibly decent and took half off the bill after seeing our faces when he asked how our meal was. Even at that I feel we were overcharged. It has been a LONG time since I've had such a bad dining experience! The teenagers who served us hadn't a clue about service... More

Visited An Bonnan Bui for dinner. We had heard that they did nice pizza so one of the kids was keen to try it. Despite having pizza on the menu, we were told that they "don't do pizza anymore" so that was both confusing and disappointing. It's not the most comfortable place to have dinner. It was actually a bit... More

There are lots of pubs in little Cahersiveen. You won't go wrong here -- we enjoyed the food better at a couple other places but nothing wrong with a lunch at An Bonnan Bui.

Traveling solo: This pub was so welcoming with great pub fare and the PERFECT pour that I returned each evening, while in the area, for dinner and the opportunity to chat with local folks. They also have traditional Irish music on some nights.

This is a small pub with a family atmosphere. The specials are reasonably priced, with fresh ingredients. We had the fresh sea bass, served with mashed potatoes and vegetables (carrots, peas, & turnips).. You could have your choice of soup or a dessert for €11.95. What a bargain! And, it was delicious too! There were families there playing pool and... More

Quiet pub. Very friendly manager. Loved the calming Irish music. A young girl with her guitar singing and an older man playing the fiddle/violin. Had a nice fish soup. Cheapest Guinness around.

A decent enough pub, but a mixture of trad pub with touristy touches. The menus options include pizza/wings/etc. They have a pool table, and a beer garden.
