We were a very large group, over 20, they made Accomodations for us in a private room upstairs and went out of their way to provide excellent service. The group ordered the full range, everything from lamb and steak to fish. The local seafood was fresh and creative. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

This is a good quality restaurant in the heart of Killarney town. You will pay a little more than other places but you pay for the quality.

Went here for dinner with friends and i really liked it. Great menu. I had Quail for starters, it was very tasty. I had slow roast pork belly with chorizo for main, which was recommended by the waitress, it didn't disappoint. My friends had a seafood platter, which was huge and another had the bruchetta, mussels and hake, they all... More

I have eaten here twice and will do every time I visit Killarney going forward. For anyone who likes a good steak, this is the place to go. Both times, the meat was cooked to perfection. I recommend this restaurant to anyone I know who tells me they are going to Killarney. It's not cheap, but you still get value... More

Haven´t been disappointed yet. The quality of the meat is superb. Wonderful service. Every visit to Killarney means a visit to "Loed Kenmare". Make sure you reserve a table!

Had a lovely romantic meal in this excellent Restaurant over the weekend. Ordered the seafood platter and it was probably the nicest meal ive ever had the pleasure of eating. Everything was cooked to perfection and the staff were really pleasant and helpful. A must do if ever in Killarney.

We enjoyed a vacation dinner here. All in all a nice experience, friendly and very attentive staff and very hospitable. For a restaurant with this rating you would expect the food to be perfect. Quality was mixed. I had the seafood platter. The mussels in butter sause were fantastic, the prawns cooked to perfection. The squid was nice, but the... More

Lord Kenmares isn't somewhere I would frequent as it is quite pricey but for a special occasion it is certainly worth treating oneself. I came here with family and friends, ten of us in total, for dinner on a Tuesday night and were certainly glad we made a reservation because even on a Tuesday it was quite busy. We decided... More

My husband and I were greeted promptly and warmly. We both had seafood which was delicately prepared and full of flavor. One of the best seafood dishes I've had. We plan on returning before we leave Killarney.
