The Blue Bull is a classic Irish pub with fantastic food. It sits downtown in quaint Sneem. I had the biggest order of fish and chips in my life.

My husband and I are in Ireland for the first time from the states. While doing a Ring of Kerry tour we stopped here. Service was quick and friendly, and the food was delicious! The atmosphere was great, too! We'd suggest it to anyone in the area!
