Food was OK. Service was poor. Not busy but we were ignored until we went to pay bill. Not once did the 2 servers ask about our needs.

We had a lovely meal - no photos but everyone was pleased with their selections. The service was good and the meals arrived without deal.

I ate here while staying in Kenmare. It was typical pub food but nice and plentiful. It was reasonably priced.

Great service, in fact the fastest delivery of food we’ve had this week. All of the staff was friendly, and very good pub food. We left before we had a chance to enjoy the music but we’ve been before and it was fantastic. Highly recommend!

We visited early evening for a pint and some food. The barman was so friendly; we felt really at home. Great, fresh mussels and fantastic Irish stew with homemade soda bread. Exactly what we were looking for.
