Classic pub food and a great selection of whiskeys and ales. This is a local establishment with a sophisticated edge. Good music and an enthusiastic audience made for a great evening.

We have visited here on numerous occasions when we have visited Kenmare. It was recommended to us by our friends who live here and can't fault the place. The food is exceptional and the staff are very friendly.
