“Good meal - worth going back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

First of all we only had dinner and drinks and did not stay in the guesthouse area.

My wife and I found it hard to choose what to eat as they have a great menu. We selected a Sirlion steak and Fish & Chips and completely enjoyed our meal. We had another couple join us and a good time was had by all.

We were charged an extra beer and extra wine but decided it best to let it slide as the meal and service was top notch.

We will again visit Davitts when we return to Kenmare in the future.

“Loved the atmosphere and food”

Friendly faces, good food, Irish hospitality--who could ask for more? We left something behind and they were so kind to carefully hold it for us.

“Outstanding Meal Nice Atmosphere Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

We were given a list of restaurants in Kenmare to visit by our B and B. We ate at Davitts on Friday of the busy June Bank Holiday in Ireland. We spent 12 wonderful days touring all over Ireland and our experience at Davitts was at the top of the list. The menu includes fish, beef, chicken, lamb, pasta and vegetarian dishes - all made with fresh ingredients. I tried the baked salmon served with fresh vegetables and potatoes. The sauce was outstanding. My husband who is hard to please ordered a penne chicken pasta and raved about it. Ingredients were incredibly fresh. Each dish was presented in an artistic fashion. The prices were very reasonable. The bar selection very good. The desert selection was also outstanding. Service was warm and welcoming. Great music - beginning at 7 pm with an Irish duet playing in the background while we ate. About 20 people gathered at that time just for music and the bar. There is a larger seating area in the back for big groups and tables for 2, 4, 6 or 8 in the front. The staff handled the large crowd well. We loved Ireland and Kenmare and will go back to Davitts again.

“Really Good Food and Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

We ate here on a very busy Tuesday evening and the food and the service was fantastic. We had a lovely private table and the waiting staff couldn't have been more friendly or attentive. food was really good especially the chicken fajitas and very reasonably priced. There was even live entertainment in the front bar which made it a really lovely atmosphere for the last night of our stay in Kenmare - definitely recommend this one - thanks very much to all.
