Myself and my Girlfriend stopped here on the Sunday of our weekend away to killarney. I pass this place quite often and have always said it looks great maybe we should go sometime. There's plenty of parking around the sides and rear of the building so no worry with a space even though it's a very busy spot! There's a... More

I was traveling every month from Cork to Keey and finally I had the chance to have my lunch at this fantastic restaurant ( not the hotel ) . The food was tasty and staff is very professional and firendly. It is a good value for money and we all enjoyed our lunch there. It has a big parking at... More

Following our move into the area the Mills Inn has become our favourite dining spot...food is consistently good, Sunday Roast especially - some very good specials every day along with excellent service from the friendly waiting staff. Relaxed atmosphere, decent seating and some very good drinks to go with the food...the wife as a veggie has a couple of very... More

Thank you so much for your fantastic review and for making us your 'local' eatery. Although we do try to vary our menus for regular visitors, if there is something you'd like us to include on the menu, we welcome all suggestions! We like to ensure there are tasty options for vegetarian palates - our chefs don't believe in compromising... More

Due to my visit to The Mills Inn last week, I felt compelled to write this review(note this is my first ever review). One word “IMPECCABLE”. My partner and I were in a bit of hurry and extremely hungry, so we were looking for somewhere that would meet our needs. Having been previously recommended to go to The Mills Inn... More

Love the setting and location of the mills but over the last year there's no consistency in food for example the goats cheese dish is never the same, for this reason I rarely eat here anymore. The floor staff are great but when it comes to paying at the bar prepare to wait. I know this may not be your... More

I stayed at the Mills Inn for two nights recently and can say that it's a typically fine, old Irish inn. Established in 1755 and in great condition for its years, the rural location makes it very easy to get in and out of, unlike accommodations in towns or cities. The food was great and the pub company was even... More

Thank you so much for your great review of our inn. I know it's cliché to say the Irish are a friendly bunch but I'm glad you found that to be the case in our pub. I always find Americans to be just as friendly though, so that helps us to be friendly to YOU:). We really appreciate that you... More
