After spending the morning visiting Kenmare pier and the stone circle, we had lunch in the Coachman's. I had the beef & guinness casserole and it was simply divine. I mentioned it to the (very friendly and helpful) waitress who confirmed that the chef slow-cooks...it and takes great care at putting in the right ingredients at the right time. My wife had the chowder, and the kids had pasta bolognese and turkey & ham. Everything perfect. Big thanks to all the staff and definitely to be recommended!More

A surprising lovely stay. Rooms are spacious, bed comfortable and the staff is very helpful and accommodating. A solid place to stay in Kenmare.

This is a very competent and affordable option for lunch or dinner in Kenmare. The food isn’t haute cuisine, but it’s not meant to be. Just very well-cooked standards such as chicken goujons, meatballs etc. We were caught out without a dinner reservation on a...Friday night when a lot restaurants were booked out. Coachman’s was available and we didn’t regret it.More

First time back to KenMare since 2016. We ate here 5th September 2021.. burger burnt.. bun .. burnt… curry was not home made … tasted very much like a vesta curry. Both meals not worth the €15 euro each… waitresses unattentive… it was not overly...busy…we’re not asked once if everything was ok… wife went the ladies and stated they were filthy… never asked for proof of double vaccination either. Would not go back and would not recommendMore

Food was average to be honest. Got fish and chips and it was like the frozen stuff from a supermarket. We also got a starter of salmon and it was nearly €10 for a tiny portion and it wasn’t great at all. We left disappointed.

Never asked for Covid Cert. Coffee was full of grounds and the food was tasteless. The staff needs more training. The quality of the food was poor

Always love returning to this wonderful bar and restaurant when staying in Kenmare. The owners Siobhan and Padraig along with their team are so welcoming and attentive. Excellent food and service. And a great pint of Guinness too!

My husband asked the staff on a very rainy afternoon if we could come in for a coffee/drink. They said yes, however when we walked in we were made to feel very unwelcome. We asked a member of staff for drinks and were given the...bill to pay immediately when the drinks arrived. It was a very uncomfortable visit and would never return.More

We would highly recommend this pub for a lovely meal. We had the Pork Loin and it was delicious. We couldn't fit in the lovely dessert because the portion was so generous.

Great location! The seafood pie was nice and the staff were friendly. However, the burger wasn't very good as it was in a cheap bun and was very dry.

Dunno. Good question, but I suspect they probably do.
