Our best meal & best service in Ireland! Delicious and elegant food with traditional Irish flare

After spending 6 days touring throughout Ireland and mostly dining on traditional pub fare my family and I were looking for a more upscale restaurant with menu depth beyond text book Irish stews and fish and chips (don't get me wrong these dishes are delicious!). Lord Kenmare was suggested to us by... read more

I popped by here for a nice afternoon meal. Having just started a job in Killarney I was eager to explore Killarney's cuisine and test its hospitality. Clearly I was not let down; prompt and courteous service, despite my awful habit for keeping the server for recommending dishes! I must commend the chef on duty at the time also; the... More

The owner of the restaurant was able to accommodate 8 with short notice. The service was prompt and friendly. Five of us ordered steak which were cooked to our desired doneness. One of our party claimed his was the best steak he ever had in 20 years of coming to the British Isles. Folks raved about the chocolate fondant dessert.... More

Lord Kenmare's is a step above all the other restaurants in Killarney without losing its Irishness. The staff is terrific and the food is even better. You will not be disappointed. It's on the 2nd floor.

We ate here on our last night in Killarney. Walked right in with a group of 6 around 7:30 and had no problem getting a table. Waitstaff was excellent and very entertaining all night. Wonderful food and would definitely recommend and go back.

Lord Kenmare's Restaurant is upstairs from Murphy's Pub in downtown Killarney. My mom and I arrived for dinner on a busy weekend with no reservation. We were given menus and were told to wait in the pub until a table was available, which was estimated to be about 20 minutes. They did not take our name. We had some drinks... More

There were 5 of us having just completed the Ring of Kerry cycle. Killarney was jam packed with 11 thousand cyclists, tourists and people getting ready for the Munster football final. To say getting a table in a restaurant was difficult is putting it mildly. A friend of ours had a table for 3 booked in The Lord Kenmare and... More
