“Extremely rude and aggressive behaviour from staff”
Reviewed July 25, 2010

My partner was lead to a table of 6 by a member of staff. When I followed him in with our children another member of staff followed me into the restaurant and shouted across the restaurant at me that "WE ARE FULL" I was so upset by this behaviour that i immediately left, as were my children who could not understand why the man shouted at their mom.

Foley's Townhomes were excellent. Clean, modern and quiet. Mr. Foley was very hospitable and helpful to make sure our vacation was a great one. His pub, Foleys Restaurant, that was downtown had great food. My husband loved the Guiness Pie and I loved the Fish and Chips. Mr. Foley's kindness will not be forgotten. If (when?) we return to Ireland, we will stay in his holiday homes again.

I really enjoyed my stay in Foleys Townhouse. It was a perfect location right in the centre of the town and there was very little noise despite being located on the side of the street. The staff were very friendly and the food served in the downstairs restaurant was lovely.
Rooms were small but very clean, comfortable and nice decor. Would definitely go back to Foley's.

The townhouse was absolutely beautiful. I would live in it full time all year. When you step out the front door there are beautiful rolling hills to view. The town you can walk to in 15 min, leisurely. Grocery stores are close by so you can cook if you choose to. We entertained on several occassions and there was a great patio outside. The house has all the needed accessories including a dishwasher; washer and dryer. It is a place you could use as a central location for a long period of time. The rooms are large and spacious. I believe it sleeps six. It is at the end or the beginning of the ring of Kerry. Depending on which way you want to look at it. There are pubs within walking distance of the house. I had three seniors with me who found it very comfortable. Very very reasonable. Much cheaper then any other place you might stay and great for travellers with family or a group. Even a couple, its cheaper then a hotel.

We found this place in a travel guide book and stopped in to ask for a room. The staff were very friendly and helpful and got us a room for a reasonable price. With live music and a very friendly breakfast service this is a great place to stop if you have just travelled the ring of kerry and are looking for a cute little town to stop in overnight. It is on one of the main streets in town and while it does not have parking the street parking is free. I lost my phone at the hotel and they were very efficient at getting it sent back home to me. Great service and Great place to stay.

We stayed in Foleys for two nights, and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were lovely and clean. The food portions were generous and tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were well looked after.
