Best seafood chowder

My husband raved about the seafood chowder. He said it was hearty and tasty. The 'eggplant boat' was also tasty ... not soggy. Kids menu offered the basics...penne. bolognese. Overall, very good food.

We're on a short break to Killarney and looked for somewhere cheap and cheerful that the kids 5 and 3 would be okay in. Found Mac's and what a great choice. Nice and bright decor, ordered fish and chips for the kids, happy to split one portion between 2 kids. I had the fish and chips, 2 decent sized bits... More

Have eaten here many times before (brekfast/lunch). Had dinner here on this occassion - they had an early bird option for €17.95 for 2 courses. Service was very efficient and the food was absolutely fantastic. Varied menu to suit all tastes.

Centrally located on the main street, family run, friendly & efficient staff. Varied menu for lunch & dinner. A special treat - home made ice cream made by the proprietors.

Myself and my boyfriend went for the early bird over the weekend. Food wasn't great and we felt the service was pretty appalling. Not a smile from any of the staff.

Went to Macs with my wife over the past decade and in the past I could only praise it. I visited during the weekend for lunch and desert,and the thing is the food was poor and the presentation was poor also. The ice cream which was once the best tasting/presented in Kerry was now poorly on both accounts. I used... More

We were staying in Killarney last weekend to celebrate my partner's birthday. We were searching for a nice restaurant around town but nothing seemed right for us. Finally we decided to eat in our hotel and on the way back we suddenly stopped by Mac's of Main Street's door and checked the menu. It was perfect. The restaurant looks small... More
