Word spreads on our great dishes, be it our own family farm steaks, our unrivalled Irish stew, or our Atlantic seafood.

Word continues to travel on the dining experience that’s there to be tasted at Behan’s; the succullence of our steaks, our unrivalled Irish stew, our true taste of seafood from the wild Atlantic.

Whatever it is, more often than not, our visitors take with them a memorable dining experience. Described by visitors as ‘a hidden gem’ - the quintessential Irish bar and restaurant, an inviting mixture of laid back joie de vivre, hearty good food, great produce and an atmosphere that entices, beguiles and enchants.

We like to think our reviews speak for themselves, and from all corners of the globe they come; from Ohio to Oz, from Melbourne to Malta, and everywhere in between. It’s little wonder the popularity of Behan's Horseshoe Bar and Restaurant continues to grow today, lauded by visitors as the ultimate Irish fine dining experience.

At The Horseshoe, we strive to marry great Irish dishes with the best of Irish produce, be it beef sourced from our own farm, cheeses from local producers or seafood from Kerry’s Atlantic coast. We hope this is reflected in the testimonials of all those who come to visit us and sample a truly special dining experience.

Had a wonderful lunch here today on our way back from Ballyheigue..great menu choice and staff were very friendly
we will definitely be back


Great portions, nice clean premises. Was well fed at The Horseshoe… if I have a negative, it is slightly on the expensive side; but that is reflected in the quality of what you get.
Would eat here again no problem.
