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....

We stayed in Kenmare a couple of weeks ago and had two meals over the week in this restaurant. The food isn't the cheapest, but it was really good quality and excellent service, I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back.

If you want to be amazed by the looks and taste of a dinner, order the prawn appetizer. More than enough for me with giant, tender prawns in a creamy sauce. My husband had the lamb and vegetables which were equally good but not quite as spectacular to look at. This was a meal to remember. Very nice quiet atmosphere... More
