“REAL Irish Music”

The Bold Thady Quill
Ranked #30 of 56 Restaurants in Kenmare
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Irish
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Our first night in Kenmare we dined at The Coachman - it was where all the B&B owners send their guests who ask for real Irish music... Well, it is amplified... and loud... and foot-stompin'.... pandering to Americans and Germans.... (if you ask us). After interviewing more residents about where to get a REAL Irish pub experience without the amplified pap for Americans with "rollicking-footstomping" music, we selected the Bold Thady in the Lansdowne Arms and LOVED it. The pub grub was better than the Coachman and the music was REAL.... and more than half of the bar were Kenmare or Kerry native. Yes, they loved it... we loved it.... you will love it. At Coachman we felt like we were on an assembly like - at the bold thady we felt one of the crowd.

After wandering around town, I decided to go back to my hotel pub for dinner. Glad I did. Best lamb stew I've every had. Went back later to listen to the band which was just OK.

We stopped here for coffee in the evening, as we were at dinner time most places in Kenmare were serving dinner. We asked if we could get coffee & cake only & this was no problem. the young girl serving us was lovely & helpful, we got a starter also and she was very obliging offering to change it slightly to suit needs. Food was nice also & service excellent.

Ate here with my partner while doing the Ring
Nice food, soup was fab and the young waitress gave us plenty of cordial as it was a very warm day.
Would recommend.

My wife and I ate dinner at the Bold Thady Quill, and came back for more the following evening. The atmosphere is warm and rustic, with lots of nice wood and stone work. The food was fresh and flavorful, especially the fish & chips and the lamb. The second evening we ate at the bar, and had a fun, lively conversation with some friendly locals. If we lived in Kenmare, we'd probably be regulars at this place.
