Had the pleasure of staying here last weekend as we were in Kenmare for a wedding. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. All the staff we met were so friendly and helpful. Had breakfast both mornings and lunch both days. Food was...so tasty especially the pancakes with spiced apples and caramelised nuts for breakfast and panko prawns equally delicious for lunch. Thank you for making us so welcome, look forward to returning againMore

While spending the day in Kenmare, we chose to eat at Davitt's for lunch. Walking in we were greeted not only by welcoming staff members, but a noticably well designed space. We liked the diversity of seating, and how they have broken up the area...to allow smaller, more intimate places to enjoy your meal with friends/family. We had the chicken salad, which my husband said may have been the best salad he's ever had. It boasted a myriad of ingredients from chicken and ham to potatos, tomatoes and lettuce. I will be trying to recreate this dish at home! I had the grilled halloumi sandwich. Again, not the typical items found on a menu, which made it all the more special. Glad we came, and would go again.More

We had spent the day hiking and looked like wet rats and almost didn’t go into this lovely restaurant. The staff was the friendliest of anywhere we’ve visited in Ireland and France and the food was amazing! Wish I could give them 6 stars! Go...see these lovely people and you won’t be disappointed!More

Beautiful food, perfect pint and a great service. A visit to Kenmare would not be complete without visiting the beautiful restaurant. We have had 3 meals here between Dec 21 and Jan 22 and each have been great.

Hello , We have a large menu but middle of the road price. We offer good value for money. Night time more expensive.
