This popular local bar is the perfect spot for a quiet afternoon pint, settling in to watch the match, having a chat with the locals, a meeting point for friends or enjoying the great music.

“Authentic pub food and terrific service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

So happy my husband and I stopped in Kenmare after our Ring of Kerry drive and took a chance on this little gem. We both ordered traditional pub food (Guinness and beef stew for him; fish and chips for me), and Foley's did not disappoint. The Smithwick's was cold, the service was gloriously friendly, and the food was hearty and heavenly. Locals all filtered in while we dined and talked about sports and politics with the proprietor; a musician was setting up for live entertainment around the time we left. Exactly what we wanted (and the price was completely right)! LOVED IT!

“Go for the Beef & Guiness Pie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Hands down - one of our most memorable experience was eating at the wonderful Foley's Restaurant and Bar in Kenmare. The location could not be better - the pub and restaurant never failed to deliver great food and drinks...But, after spending three weeks wandering thruout Ireland, the most memorable Beef and Guiness Pie were here. It is a must. You have not been to Ireland nor had Beef Pie until you have had it at Foleys in Kenmare.
