Open since 1964, Grainne O´Connell´s informal restaurant/bar was among the first to establish a reputation for good food in Kenmare.

April 2017   -   from the ´Irish Examiner´ :
Lounging on a red leather banquette to the rear of the darkened pub on a sunny afternoon would put the brakes on any speedster and we relish a lazy lunch with DOSM´s warm goat´s cheese salad and MHD´s fresh prawn salad earning deserved praise while my sweet, healing tomato bisque is top-heavy with meaty fresh crab claws.
DOSM - Dear Old Sainted Mother
MHD - My Heart´s Delight.

Start with refreshing freshly squeezed orange juice, well-made soups that come with home-baked breads, or salad made of organic greens with balsamic dressing.

Main courses include a number of seafood salads, vegetarian salads (cold and warm), pâtés including a delicious smoked salmon pâté plus a range of omelettes, sandwiches and open sandwiches (Cashel Blue cheese and walnut, perhaps, or crabmeat with salad) or Irish farmhouse cheeses
(with a glass of L.B.V Offley port, if you like).
