“The food at Foley's....superb, wonderful, delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2011

Forget telling you how wonderful the stay was at Foley's. Let's talk food. We traveled extensively in Ireland and sampled traditional Irish foods but it wasn't until we ate at Foley's that we had tasted the best. We could not get enough. Every bite was a taste sensation. The best was the Kerry Beef in Guinness w/pastry and colcannon. Don't bother going anywhere else for food. Foley's gets two enthusiastic thumbs up from us.

Room Tip: Ask politely.

Only stayed on night on our trip but it was a very clean place. The food was delicious both our dinner in the pub that night we arrived and our breakfast in the morning. The rooms look like they had been redone in the past year. Only downside was the noise at night trying to sleep (pub noise) but earplugs worked.

We stayed at ArdMullen self catering in Kenmare. this is our second trip to Ireland and we were not disappointed. The houses are spacious. well appointed and reasonably priced. We ate at Foley's often in our 4 days there. Patrick treated us like family and we are already planning a return there. The food at the pub is phenomenal and the entertainment was top notch-we highly recommend Foley's1

5 friends and I rented a holiday home in August 2009 for a week. We were attending dog shows in Killarney, Clonmel, Tralee & Limerick & there were no issues about our dogs staying and we even had a HUGE garden and lovely big kitchen to keep them in, we didn't let them in any other part of the house as it was such a lovely place!
I had issues conecting to the internet, which was free, but the staff at Foley's helped me & within minutes I was online. If I attend those dog shows again I will stay here without a second thought. We really loved this place.
The only problem we had was that there was no hover to clean up before we left. I know there are cleaners who clean the house afterwards however we wanted to leave the house as we found it, which was immaculate! Thank you for a lovely stay Mr Foley.

Like a previous reviewer, We really didn't need to leave Foley's. 17 year-old daughter and I stayed for one night before leaving on Ring of Kerry drive. Arrived in mid-afternoon and Patrick checked us in and helped me fix sunglasses (who'd a thunk...sunglasses in Ireland!). Came down later for a nice pub dinner and traditional music. Up early to beat the rush on the Ring. Patrick understood our desire to hit the road early so "fast-tracked" our excellent breakfast, but not to the point of rushing...just efficient.

We stayed here for one night and we checked into our room. Came back down stairs had some drinks and then later had dinner and listened to live music. The next morning we had a good breakfast with Mr. Foley and never had to leave the building. Rooms were very clean, Bar service was great and the food was real good. We would recommend this place as we felt Pat Foley does a great job of satisfying customers and guests.
