“Some of the best food we had in all of Ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This place is right across the street from where we stayed and to be honest we were not expecting great fair due to the late hour and the fact that we were there during the off season and almost everyplace in Kenmar was closed. WOW! We ordered the cheese pizza and it was the most amazing pizza I have had outside of Chicago, IL! We also shared a couple of unique appetizers and were equally blow away by the flavor. This pub gives the appearance of being a place one may just have a couple of pints at but don't be fooled this is gourmet food. I would trust anything on this menu .

“Underwhelmed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The food at O'Donnabháin's was very disappointing. I never had salmon that was so tasteless and the accompanying spinach mash had a very soggy texture. My friend's beef burger looked to be of a very poor quality. It tasted very much of processed meat, not a homemade burger that you would expect for over 10 Euro. Big improvements are needed here.
