We sat down and we were given the menu. Noreen remarked that my other half has eyes like Anthony Hopkins, he does.!!! Tom; aka, Sir Anthony Hopkins..!!! had the... More

We had a chowder and a ham and cheese toastie. We came here because it was recommended and we thought to give it a try. My chowder comes last among the chowders i had during the week. It had the least fish and the most carrot and potato. It had at least the quality of not being mostly cream but... More

We called into The Atlantic Bar as it appeared less touristy than the other pubs in Kenmare. We both had Irish Coffees and they were heavenly - smooth and creamy and warming. The bartender was smiley and there were a few locals supping pints at the bar. I will try their renowned seafood chowder when next in Kenmare.

The Atlantic Bar is a cozy place serving liquor, coffee and dinner. The waitress was super friendly, chatty and efficient. We went there for an evening snack of sandwiches and coffee and were not disappointed. There are enough veggie options on offer. Charming is the one word I would use to describe the town, the Atlantic bar and the well-travelled... More

A friendly bar with charming staff. We enjoyed watching the hurling here while supping a couple of glasses of Guinness in the company of lovely "strangers"

Only a late afternoon, upon just arriving to Ireland, and Kenmare, we were starved and ready to try the local fare. This was the only restaurant serving at 3 pm. We ordered the seafood chowder, which is made fresh daily. And returned twice more over the next 10 days to have more. We traveled all over Ireland, and this is... More
