A great restaurant which was so packed and lively on a dark Feb night which just says it all. The food offering was comprehensive and a wine list that was small but offered excellent quality. The seafood platter is the signature dish and if I am being honest my wife and myself could have shared one between us as the... More

Very disappointed, have eaten here on a number of occasions over the last few years and we had always enjoyed our meal, however the waitress needed to learn how to nicely place cutlery, food on the table, and pour wine, the food has become over priced and smaller portion size and could not be compared to the fabulous meal we...

Lord Kenmare's is above Murphy's pub in College Street. The menu is varied and we both had the seafood platter which was really excellent. The wine list, although not too extensive, caters for house wines through to the indulgent. The staff were helpful and attentive. We were pleased with our choice and would certainly return. Murphy's pub below is great... More

We dine here every time we come to Killarney. Food is amazing, ambience very good and staff very friendly. I would recommend the specials, as they are fresh and local. The chocolate fondant is divine!

I visited for dinner and the service was fine. The Seafood Chowder was fair but the Pork Loin was dry, 3 ice-cream scoops of lumpy potato, cold carrots and mushy brocolli. Did not eat all of it and should have stopped before then. I hope it was a bad night because I had nothing but good recommendations prior to going... More
