Location and contact

Kenny's Bar, Lahinch has become a landmark in North Clare, frequented by both locals and visitors alike, for its relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. A fourth generation family business, Kenny's humble origins as a coachhouse in the 1830s, has seen it evolve into a gastro pub by day and a highly regarded music venue by night.

We always eat at least once or twice in Kenny's when visiting family in Lahinch. Food always good, with satisfying portions, great Guinness, lovely atmosphere and good service. Usually busy, especially during the Summer or at weekends, but well worth a visit.
