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.

This review would have been much better but the wait staff were inattentive and we had long waits for beverages and food. There were a lot of staff but we felt like we were invisible as they kept rushing by us. BTW, the Guinness Irish Stew was the best I had in Ireland!

With the wide variety of restaurants in Kenmare I was so disappointed that I chose so badly. Our group had a variety of likes & dislikes which unfortunately limited my options. I could complain about the poor service, tasteless mussels & unappetising fishcakes but when I say that three of the four main courses arrived at the table while we were halfway through our starters, I feel this goes beyond personal preferences & expectations. No apology by the way. The mains were rather past their best by the time we got them (having wolfed down our starters). A real disappointment.

Just left this bar/restaurant after a stressful hour and a half. Two adults, three children. We were ignored for about twenty minutes, despite me carrying a baby and a highchair the length of the restaurant. Had to ask three members of staff four times for a jug of water, they got our meal order wrong, resulting in our wee one waiting even longer for her meal. Dirty glasses, sugarbowls, sticky tables and average food. Don't bother!

Went for dinner here last night. Three adults, two had sirloin steak ordered it rare avid medium, both came out cremated. I had the steak and Guinness pie, which was half heated up stew with microwaved mash with a frozen bit of FILO pastry so they could try and resemble a pie. Horrible food, felt sick all last night. Would never recommend.

Our group of 12 went to Foley's for dinner on the last night of our holiday and to celebrate a birthday. The atmosphere was great it appeared to be the only place to go in Kenmare on a Friday night as it had live music and great buzz about it.

The food was excellent quality and there was a great selection on the menu to choose from, it was also excellent value for money. Could not recommend Foley's enough great for family's and a great night out.

It really is worth a visit if you are in the area, you would be missing out if you don't...
