“I'd go back tomorrow...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2009

Went into the Horseshoe on my first night in Kenmare actually thinking it was a pub and planning on getting some fish and chips. Going in here was a great mistake. The Horseshoe has a great little bar at the front of the restaurant where we could get a drink whilst waiting for a table.

Staff were friendly and seemed to want to talk to everyone despite being so busy. Food (lots of fish available) was brilliant and was fairly good value. Will be back to the Horsehoe next time I am near Kenmare.

“Fantastic food with the friendliest and most helpful service ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2009

We were a party of 6 who came across The Horseshoe by chance one Sat afternoon in March. Lunchtime food looked fab so we asked about a table for dinner that evening. Although the restaurant part of the pub was fully booked, we were offered a table in the small bar area which we took. The food certainly did not disappointed - wonderful fresh, hot bread came with our starters which were generously sized, piping hot and using wonderful fresh ingredients. The same was true for the main courses - we had no room for dessert! Our waiter was so helpful, nothing was too much trouble and, when we proved undecided on wine we were invited to sample before we selected! Food was reasonably priced and I can't recommend The Horseshoe too highly!
