Good menu, great atmosphere

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.

The Lord Kenmare is based in the heart of Killarney town. The menus gave a good choice. The early bird was Euro23.50 for 2 courses. The staff were friendly and the food of very good quality.

I made reservations prior to our family arriving in Ireland and was very happy to see that it was located directly across the street from our hotel! Our whole family truly enjoyed everything that we ordered! It is a really quaint restaurant and the service was wonderful! Highly recommend trying it if you are staying in Killarney!
