Fresh fish & chips and a decent burger. The highlight of our visit was an expertly poured pint of Guinness and a pair of locals playing traditional Irish tunes -- nothing extraordinary, but perfectly delightful.

Had a spectacular time here. My waiter, Dave, was the most pleasant man ever. I had a chicken and chorizo pasta dish that was divine. Great beer too, I would recommend Fischers if you're into lager. Great experience and great staff. Thanks Dave.

The food is delicious, the service impeccable, the music great! Ask the owner for a Baby Guiness shot - if we ever go back to Ireland we will take a side trip just to spend an evening at PF McCarthys!!

I had the salmon with potatoes and a squash vegetable. It was excellent! I thought it was actually one of the best meals I had while in Ireland so I'd highly recommend.

Very busy little pub in Kenmare, but the food was good, brew was good, and they had a group of fiddle players playing when I came in. Quite lovely.

Very friendly waiting staff, excellent selection on menu at reasonable prices. They don't have a children's menu but will cater for them offering half portions of main meals or chicken goujons/sausages etc. Desserts are beautiful! Would recommend for a meal if visiting Kenmare.

Had my lunch recently at PF's. Chefs know what they doing. Fresh, well seasoned, I guess local products. Will recommend to all my customers. Thanks.

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.
