We visited with 2 other friend, service was good, Guinness was average and the pricing was the same as all other similar pub/restaurants in Kenmare. Good solid place to go

This was the first pub I went to while in Ireland and it was amazing. Being a vegetarian I thought it may be difficult finding options, but I had these excellent onion, goat cheese and date tarts. And warm chocolate cake and icecream for desert. The live music was wonderful as well.

We visited this pub after a trip around the ring of Kerry. Cosy atmosphere. Good service. Live irish music. The food is very good. We tasted some stews which were well prepared, especially the beef. In combination with a pint of lager one is completely satisfied. Nice place!

We had a great few visits to O'Donnabhains while in Kenmare for a week. Mitchell and the rest of the crew there were very nice and welcoming. Good food, especially the seafood casserole, chowder, fries...
