At O’Donnabhain’s Bar, Restaurant and Guesthouse / Bed and Breakfast we provide you with a memorable experience of food, drink and accommodation. We are located in the hidden gem of Ireland that is Kenmare, Co. Kerry. With an 83% rating on Tripadvisor, we are the perfect place to drop off for a drink, a meal, to listen to some local music, or to stay for the night in one of our modern en suite rooms.

Traditional Irish pub

O’Donnabhain’s Gastro Bar with its open fire, exposed ceilings and wooden finish provides a fabulous contemporary setting with all the character of an old Irish pub. Drop in, meet the locals, make some new friends and soak up some of the great atmosphere and music.

Our restaurant

As well as being a Traditional Pub we are also a Restaurant. We have a sheltered Beer Garden able to provide dining for everyone from couples up to large groups (max. 100 people). Whether it is a pre/post wedding party, family get together, or just time out from the day’s excursions, my wife Vanessa and I will take great pleasure in hosting you. As we say ‘God made food for everyone’.
