This is the real deal. This isn't a Disney land Irish pub like many others in Kenmare. The pub hasn't changed much in 100 years, no tv, no piped music, It's almost a shame to share this secret with the internet.Hopefully it won't change due...More

A great place to go and forget about the rat race. Crowley’s hasn’t changed it’s decor over many decades. They don’t even have a cash register. This creates its distinct charm where it feels like you’re entering a “locals only” type of establishment yet everyone...More

Unfussy drinking bar with barbers shop memorabilia left over from.previous use. Small bar and snug with open fire. Good cold Guinness. No TV or distractions from the black stuff

If you’re one of the lucky ones to squeeze into this cozy pub, you’ll be delighted by the lively music and atmosphere. The great beer and great vibes are flowing! Has more local flavor than most bars #crazycrowley

Called into this bar by chance. Myself and three Kiwi mates. The hospitality was fantastic and after ten days of Guinness drinking in Ireland our group judged our pints from Crowleys the best we had sampled on our tour.

Crowleys is definitely a great bar and thankfully hasn't gone the way of all the other bars in Kenmare by installing tvs and serving food. It's a genuine authentic Irish pub and doing great business despite (or perhaps because of) the lack of facilities. There...More

Traditional pub with a good mix of people. Great music there on a Thursday night we were there. Good pint too.

This is a simple bar. No fancy decor or any of that. Just good pints and a good vibe about the place. Put away your phone, enjoy the simplicity and relax

Truly a gem! We did go in low season (November) so not many tourists in town anyway, but found Crowley's to be the epitome of Irish hospitality and warmth. Came our first night to hear the owner playing guitar and singing as the "warm up"...More
