We had both the fish and chips and the Irish Stew. Best food of our visit to date. Our deserts were more like gourmet than pub. Wonderful local craft beer, Kenmare Irish Red Ale.

WE stopped off at Kenmare for lunch after visiting Killarney.We didn't book but were accommodated (as long as we weren't longer than an hour!!) and both the food and service were excellent. I had three thick pieces of lamb with veg and thoroughly enjoyed the ambience.

Visited and dined here for lunch with our wonderful hostess Anne Randles from Doire Farms. The food was delicious and affordable, come early for lunch before the tour buses arrive...this is where "they" stop for authentic and delicious Irish dishes.

We ate here twice during our visit to Kenmare in July 2016. The first evening we had dinner and the second night we stopped in for dessert. Both evenings were delightful. The first night they had live music, which we enjoyed while we dined. The service was efficient and friendly. The food was very good and the desserts were impressive.... More
