We stayed on July 14 and 15 and had a great time the staff is friendly and helpful and the pub was fun! Good music with Pat also! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. If we return to Ireland this will be one of our stops again! Kenmare is a beautiful town.

We booked a night at Foley's. In three places their advertising says free parking.. it is actually on the main street and only free after 4pm. It said trad Irish music - all we heard from 9pm to 12.30 am was a synthesised drum backing track (the same one) thumping though our room. It had the finesse of a carousel... More

We stayed at the self catering townhouse for 6 weeks. The home was extremely clean, spacious and well equipped and Marion and Patrick did everything to make our stay comfortable, special and friendly. No request was too big and they are just lovely people. We loved having a washer/dryer and wi fi was great and the fireplace is a nice... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner and staff were friendly and always willing to assist. The room was better than we were expecting which was a pleasant surprise. The location is right in the middle of one of the main streets in town which puts everything within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.

We spent a week in one of Foley's self catering homes. The house was very comfortable, free wifi (very important when travelling with teenagers), it was located in a small estate that was only a short 10 minute walk from the town centre. We enjoyed our week in Kenmare, it was a great location for touring the Ring of Kerry... More

Our family stayed for one week in Kenmare in one of Foley's self catering homes. The home is quite comfortable and very convenient to all of the local attractions. The kitchen is well equipped and was great to have our morning coffee in the small courtyard. What would be very helpful would be a barbecue, lots of travellers like ourselves... More

My husband and I ate here two of three nights in Kenmare. The pub/restaurant has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. We had fish and chips, lamb stew, and a seafood pizza. Everything was fresh and delicious. Highly recommended!

We stayed here one night last week. We did not have a reservation as we were only passing through. We called and booked a double room for the night. It was €89 for the night including breakfast which I thought was very good value. The room had a double and single beds and was quite spacious. The bathroom was a... More

Great room, comfortable bed, small bath, great bar! Just know that even n week nights there is a bit of bar noise from open windows. We were fine but could bother others! The breakfast was basic Irish breakfast and service sufficient. They had indicated they would have soya milk available but did not. Overall a good place for one night.

We had lunch in the pub last Friday and the potatoes were freezing, we waited long enough to get our dinner so decided to just eat up. The waitress was very friendly and helpful but the other woman who I guess is the owner perhaps didn't seem to care much, she stood inside the bar not doing anything when the... More
