I'd read the reviews, looked at the menu so thought why not. It may not have been very busy but still had a good atmosphere. All staff were welcoming. I decided on the ham hock terrine which was good and a decent sized portion, I followed this with smoked haddock risotto again very tasty and decent portion. To finish I... More

Food isn't what you'd want or expect coming to Ireland. A bit foodie. Service was good and staff is friendly . Food quality just wasn't that great .Save yourself the time and go to Bricin instead .

Great service and outstanding food. The grilled wild mushrooms were amazingly delicious. I recommend ordering fish because they certainly know how to prepare it. My Hake was perfectly cooked! The ambiance was lively and fun.

We ate in Lord Kenmare's on New Years Day. Only opted for main courses and we were waiting about 45 minutes - way, way too long for what were not awkward or time consuming dishes. Pricey for average food - too pricey for casual dining in my opinion.

Enjoyed a meal here while staying in Killarney for the weekend. We couldn't get a booking for the Saturday night - which is a good sign - & got a table for the Sunday night. Very nice meal, great staff & lovely atmosphere. I would certainly book here again.

Have been here maybe half a dozen times over the last few years. The experience is always the same: very friendly staff, good menu (especially if you're a seafood fan) and very good quality food. The atmosphere is great in the restaurant-but it is pretty small, and busy even on a Thursday night so booking recommended.

Went to th restaurant on a thursday evening while on a business trip. Service was attentive but not overwhelming. Menu has many choices for all tastes. Mussels caanot compare to Belgium's in size but sauce was outstanding. Ambiance good for couples as well as bigger groups. Close to centper of town.
