We always visited pubs for traditional Irish music on our vacation, and PF McCarty's did not disappoint. The food was delicious, made to order, and hot. The music was outstanding. Traditional in every way!

We came here for drinks and dinner during our 3 night stay in Kenmare. Very friendly staff, and the food was spectacular. Local pub feel giving us a true authentic Irish Pub experience.

We had a quick lunch here one day along with many locals. Had we stayed in Kenmare longer, we would certainly have returned. The chowder and bread were delicious as was the open faced smoked salmon sandwich. Staff were friendly and quick.
