We were told this was an old gem of a pub, possibly the best in town and still had the barbers chair in the front room. Firstly there was a nice open fire warming the place and the round of drinks came in at a...More

If you’re one of the lucky ones to squeeze into this cozy pub, you’ll be delighted by the lively music and atmosphere. The great beer and great vibes are flowing! Has more local flavor than most bars #crazycrowley

Called into this bar by chance. Myself and three Kiwi mates. The hospitality was fantastic and after ten days of Guinness drinking in Ireland our group judged our pints from Crowleys the best we had sampled on our tour.

Crowleys is definitely a great bar and thankfully hasn't gone the way of all the other bars in Kenmare by installing tvs and serving food. It's a genuine authentic Irish pub and doing great business despite (or perhaps because of) the lack of facilities. There...More

Traditional pub with a good mix of people. Great music there on a Thursday night we were there. Good pint too.

This is a simple bar. No fancy decor or any of that. Just good pints and a good vibe about the place. Put away your phone, enjoy the simplicity and relax

Kenmare is full of tourists, as are the restaurants and pubs. We loved Crowley's because it had locals enjoying a pint. It had a nice feel and plenty of seating in good atmosphere.

Love these proper Irish pubs, nice bar with stools. Big tables where people can sit around and chat to whomever is on the far side. Hoping you will still be the same nrpext time I visit.
