Description: Award Winning Foley's is a popular Kenmare town centre Bar/Restaurant, with accommodation, serving high quality traditional Irish Fayre with locally sourced seafood and home-grown ingredients. This popular local bar is the perfect spot for a quiet afternoon pint, settling in to watch the match, having a chat with the locals, a meeting point for friends or enjoying the great music. We are sure you will find a warm welcome with great service when you soak up the atmosphere by the open fires in this most traditional setting.

My husband and I ate here twice and enjoyed it thoroughly. The restaurant is large and the food is quite affordable. We also liked being able to pick out our own table. The staff is attentive, but not overbearing.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your meal at Foley's. All of the Foley's team are very friendly, customer focussed and will not keep you talking all night - unless of course you want them to! They are great for local knowledge and stories.

Thank you for your review.

Foley's is very fortunate to have so much space for dining and then for dancing. Kenmare is also fortunate to have wonderful local suppliers of fish and shellfish - which means that we can provide such tasty mussels.

Thank you for taking time to write a review.

Found by accident, ate lunch. Have the fish and chips which are brill. The fish cooked to perfection in the best lightest batter I have ever tasted. Worth a visit anytime.

Thank you for your comments - the 'fish and chips' is one of our menu specialities.

Hopefully you will be able to taste them again soon.

The crab and salmon cakes are excellent, as is the service. The vegetarian lasagna was also very nice (and piping hot!) Their lunch specials are reasonably priced.
