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!

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.

It was a pretty dismal weekend, weather wise, so we ducked in here for a pre dinner drink. Place was busy and buzzy and we got a friendly welcome from the bar staff. Drinks were very good value, (Guinness here must be the cheapest in the country!) and had some craft beers too which is always a nice change from... More

We stayed for a night at the b&b. The room wasn't very clean and the music was quite loud. We had to wait for awhile in the morning to be served for breakfast. The food that we did have was okay but nothing great. The bathrooms in the pub were also dirty and out of toilet paper.
