An authentic Irish bar with traditional music sessions, fine food and relaxing accommodation in the heart of Kenmare.
IN THE HEART OF KENMARE TOWN
Our historic bar, with exposed ceilings and walls of native stone, dates back to the 18th century. Dine in our restaurant where the seasonal menu complements the traditional warmth and relaxing atmosphere of an old-world Kerry bar.
Genuine hospitality and Irish charm makes us the perfect place in Kenmare – for great stays, great food and great memories.
Relax in the comfort of our modern townhouse accommodation, set away from the noise of the bar and the busy street. Enjoy a hearty breakfast, full of flavour, in our private guest area. Nestled at the head of Kenmare Bay and situated on the Iveragh Peninsula, the Beara Peninsula and the Wild Atlantic Way, we’re the ideal place to stay for a warm welcome, friendly service.
We’ve been called “characterful”, “atmospheric” and even “the most famous pub in Kenmare”. You might want to visit us for a quiet night sipping select whiskeys. Comparing local craft beers while dining with your friends in our welcoming Gastro Bar might be more of your thing.
Or come join us for a local traditional music session – lively and full of Kerry wit, charm and welcome. The choice is yours…we’ll see you soon at O’Donnabhain’s!
At O’Donnabhain’s Gastro Bar and Restaurant, you can enjoy our popular menu in the heart of Kenmare town.
We cook with the best locally-sourced ingredients from nature’s pantry and our Atlantic’s bounty.
“Great Place To Stay In Wonderful Kenmare.”
We had a great stay at O’Donnabhain’s. Clean, comfortable room located on the second floor. The rooms are not located directly above the pub, but slightly to the rear. Very quiet at all times. Tasty Irish breakfast served daily to the guests.
The pub food is also very good. The hosts were very accommodating and personable. Highly recommended.
