We stayed accross the road for 2 nights and went to Crowleys on both nights. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The owner Peter had live music on the Friday night and was joined by the locals to come up and sing. We had a great night there and would recommend it to everyone.

Crowley's is the best authentic bar in Kenmare. Great place for a quiet comfortable drink. Wood bench seating around the walls give the place a nice atmosphere for the discerning drinker. Great Guinness!

This old timey pub is a throw back to an earlier era. There is a small room which used to hold a barber's chair way back when, before the Pub took over that part of the building it was a barbershop. There is live music some evenings, and despite T-Shirts being available, it is in no way "touristy". If you... More

We stopped in while visiting Kenmare for a drink. We were clearly the only non-locals there. We got great service and didn't have any problems but it's clearly a place for locals to escape the huge number of tourists. Let them be

Have been in this bar quite a bit over the years, and it is one of my favourite bars anywhere and definitely in kenmare. If any tourists are wondering what a genuine authentic Irish bar is like, look no further. It's like stepping back in time, with proper old school service in proper old school surroundings. A great and genuine... More

We visited because we heard the guinness was the best in Kenmare. the pint was very good. The service was good considering they were very busy. It had no till just a drawer for money. It is totally a mans bar, even though there were some women there, not many.
