We had lunch one day and returned a second night for a delightful dinner. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the view of the jaunting cars while we lunched! And at dinner the waitress made our day. She was so friendly and the restaurant was able to accommodate our dietary requests.

Catering for the tourist its a decent enough place. Theres a reasonable selection on the menu but let's be real these are clearly prices aimed at a tourist market. The reality is loads of other alternatives in the town Service good .

Hi Kristi H, Many thanks for the delightful review you posted. Personally I'm not a fan of Seafood Chowder but I'm almost tempted to try our own one, because I hear great things about it on a daily basis :). All the best. Warm Regards, Jonathan McCarthy Sales & Marketing More

We stayed in KIllarney for three days and dined here on two of those nights. The staff, food and service were second to none. Vegetarian options, while a little limited, the staff will go out of their way to make sure you leave the restaurant totally satisfied.
