We listened to live traditional Irish music as we waited approximately 40 minutes for our table - so time seemed to go by quickly. The seafood chowder, soup and fish and chips that our group ordered were very good and reasonably priced.

Had lunch there, I had the famous meatloaf, which was very nice and my wife had the place, which she thought was the nicest she had ever had. Very friendly and attentive staff. Great place to eat at a reasonable price. Will be back

This was a nice place to go for a relatively inexpensive meal. They also had traditional Irish music the evening we went. I would highly recommend stopping by if you are in Kenmare.

Nice Irish folk music played. I had the meatloaf and asked for mashed potatoes instead of fries (I am tired of fries), and it was delicious. Also had a could Guinness and dessert was good too, but overall too much food.

They get busy later to go early or be prepared to wait. A nice variety for everyone. I had the BBQ ribs and chicken wings. It was good but not wonderful. Others at the table liked theirs better. The bruschetta was really good. A nice...More

As far as I know, it's just a pub/restaurant. Great TRAD music, food and service but that's all I can tell you about.
