We stopped in after dinner to listen to some local Irish music and just had coffee. Everyone-- including the musician-- was friendly and we felt very welcome!

Popped in for lunch on the way to Killarney. Good pub grub served with a smile. Only criticism was a soggy cheese toast.

This was too good a town to pass through so we stopped and looked for a good pub in the Main Street and we decided on this one, the lady was very easy going and helpful and the lunch was spot on.

I settled at Foleys for early dinner, on my first night in Kenmare. A good choice, I had a Murphy's Irish stout (which is better than Guiness), and a pretty good plate of fish and chips. All considered, it was good "pub food".

Myself and my hubby stopped here for lunch while on our honeymoon in kenmare, the bar was quiet as it was mid week but the open fire was lightning and the waiter was very pleasant and it was all table service, we shared 2 starters and had a drink, i was really impressed with the pints priced at only €4.80....
