Everything - food, staff, quality, value for money and ambiance. Whether for a drink or to eat, you are welcomed in the same wonderful way. A great find.

“Better Ribs Than in the USA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

My wife and I both had a rack of ribs, and they were superb. The meat was falling-off-the-bone tender, and the sauce was perfect (for our tastes): no too thick and not too overpowering. The sauce had just the right combination of sweet and sour. We were both very surprised and happy to find such high quality food in an Irish pub.

We didn't have a reservation, but the staff was gracious enough to find us a table. I would recommend making a booking if you decide to go. The restaurant was crowded even on a Wednesday evening when we went.

Service was excellent, and the atmosphere was welcoming. Our dinners and drinks (2 pints of Guiness) came to about 60 Euros.

“Fantastic service great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Great place to have a drink outside in the sun. Service was so good we eat there. We asked for a couple of glasses of proseco which they don't sell by the glass! She opened a bottle and said don't worry we will try and sell it. Food to die for,great service and very attentive. The traditional Irish music was great. We eat at all the top restaurants in Kenmare and for us this is no 1.

Not a pub but a great restaurant. Had the duck ravioli special which was so tasty. Ideally located on the main street a short walk for our B&B

“Great decor/atmosphere but priced too high”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

Slightly overpriced for quality of food - Small piece of sea trout for €19 & poor steak for €26. Lovely house wine & side dishes...
