Stopped for a quick snack while on the journey back home. The evening menu was due to start from 5pm but our service allowed us to order from it @ 4pm! She was most helpful. The food was good and the order turnaround time was very quick. The staff were efficient and courteous and friendly. The seating area was comfortable... More

Called in on way back from a short break in the north west. We had a meal of burger and chips which was served efficiently by friendly staff. The food was of good quality and cooked well. Will be back again.

Really enjoyed my birthday dinner in Keenan's. The food was delicious and our two children enjoyed their meals which always helps. The staff were so friendly and the service was great. Will definitely be visiting again soon.

We dropped in here on our drive across Ireland. Keenan's is everything you would expect from an Irish pub / restauraunt, nice fit out inside clean and has plenty of Guiness. I ordered the special of the day steak and guiness pie, was a bit dry for my liking but still had a good amount of flavour. Worth sotpping here... More

On the way down from a match in Dublin called in for dinner. Have to say in fairness it was busy but the length of wait for food was far to long and what came was only ok and very over priced for what we got. Won't be calling again.

Went to Keenans for lunch and got a seat outside on a glorious day. We arrived around 12.10 for lunch and ordered a drink. We had to ask for our order to be taken as it was taking a long while. It was then double checked about 10 minutes later.... We asked for the drinks twice and it finally arrived... More

We were put in a pokey corner, waited 25 minutes for our food which ended up being predominantly chips with what we ordered.

We travel from Cavan to Achill Island quite a bit and are never disappointed when we stop for lunch on our homeward bound journey on a Sunday. The food is always freshly cooked and always a varied choice. The staff are very polite, friendly and do not leave you standing around waiting to be seated, typical well run family restaurant....

I ate here on 6 January 2016. Fast, friendly service. Well presented, tasty food. Toilets were clean - always a good sign. Keenan's was also quite busy, even in January - another good sign. Not cheap, but also not unreasonably priced. Located right beside the Shannon river. Plenty of parking.
