Ate there twice. Enjoyed a good meal at a reasonable price. Live music in evenings and of course a good pint of Guinness.

Very nice lunch, good staff, presented very well. One moan would be there was a poor set of fish options on menu. That would be only reason I would think twice about having a meal there again, €70 for four main courses (lunch) plus tea/coffee

This is a well-established restaurant which has been around for years and has a strong reputation. We were there before and expected good food which is what we got. There were six of us, my wife and I and four grown-up children. We all had something different and every single dish was cooked perfectly. It was August and very busy... More

We stopped in for a beer and a table near the bar had about 1/2 dozen guys and they were playing music. One had a guitar, one had a harmonica, another had some type of drum and one guy played the forks while another played the spoons. They were very good. It was apparent they were regulars. Fun pub, very... More

Just back for dunner and a drink this time to our favourite bar in Kenmare. Was really busy which goes to show how popular it is here. We had the turkey and ham, which was amazing, and the Pesto burger which was also amazing. Good service from good, helpful staff. Would love to be able to watch a soccer game... More

Had dinner last Saturday in O Donnabhain's . Not very long after ordering the starters they arrived and then the main course arrived the minute the starters were finished ! A bit to quick for what should have been freshly cooked food which was only ok . All a bit rushed and food dry. Having said that atmosphere and live... More

Our tour stopped in Kenmare for lunch, and my Mom and I found this great pub. It had a classic pub feel, with friendly, efficient service. The ploughman's panini was delicious!
