I have been dining in Keenan's for years. this would include lunches when passing evening meals and a few Christmas parties. I have to say I was never disappointed in the food. the five choice of specials for lunch usually provides a good choice but if you are not happy there is also a full menu to choose from. recommended

We had been travelling a long journey and we're looking for somewhere to stop for lunch on our way home. We were so glad to come across this place. It's a pub with a restsurant and was really busy when we went in and thought we might not get a table. There was lots of staff and one brought us... More

This hotel is situated on the banks of the river Shannon, thus is nicely situated. There is a lovely walk/bike lane outside the hotel by the river. The boutique rooms are a bit small and I found them noisy as it is so close to a major road. The bar is lovely, with a fireplace and breakfast was wonderful

We also heard from other people about the poor food etc. However, because we had so many good experiences over the years -... More

We loved this place both for the beautiful decor and also the amazing food and pub service. The owners and staff went well beyond what we expected in helping us out in so many ways over our 3 day stay with them. Truly One of our best Ireland experiences!!
