Stopped in on Rainy St Patrick's day for beer and bite to eat. Friendly staff reasonable prices. Warm fire. Food is good comfort food on a cold day. Good for groups, and those on a budget.

I'm glad we found this hidden gem. The food was wonderful. I had the Kenmare mussels and my boyfriend had the local salmon. Both dishes were gone when we finished.

An old very Irish Bar & Restaurant. Fish & Chips were excellent ! Service was tops and very friendly. The fireplace was going...kept us warm along with the great food. Sammy's was closed (their loss & our gain !) This is a must stop. You can't miss it !

Visited Foley's for a late lunch during a three day visit staying at the Kenmare Bay hotel. As usual, Foleys is welcoming and inviting, lovely big fire, always lots of people eating in there which is a good sign. Very friendly and helpful staff, and a good menu available. We found great value eating and drinking Guinness (LOL!) In there.... More

The Day I Went in It Was Quiet ! We Ordered Our Meal With A Pot Of Tea ! We Waited A Good While ! When The Meal Arrived It was Ok ! They Might Consider Washing Out The Tea Pots Fairly Often It helps When Drinking Tea !

We visited Foley's twice during our stay in Kenmare. Crab claws, fish and chips, and seafood pie were all really good. We enjoyed the live music from Dan O'Sullivan both times!

We had just arrived in Kenmare after completing the Killarney to Kenmare Kerry Way walk and in need of a drink and snack. The staff were really friendly and got a table for the group, where we could watch the Munster rugby match. Great early afternoon drinks with friends after a long day walking. Thank you
