'Had a very enjoyable meal and evening in Stonechat. Was recommended by a friend so we decided to give it a try. I had monkfish and my husband had the rib eye. Both were delicious, perfectly cooked and left just enough room for dessert. Equally important for me was that the restaurant restrooms were spotless. Very cosy atmosphere. Recommended!!

Had an amazing experience here recently...food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive. For atmosphere very few places like it. Has an unique old world feel. Definitely a hidden gem in Killarney...slightly off the beaten track but couldn't recommend it more.

I stumbled upon this lovely restaurant on a hiking trip last year with my two sons , we all just decided to go for the basic cod and chips . It was absolutely beautiful, the fish was so fresh it would have melted in your mouth and full of flavour and the chips cooked to perfection. A little piece of... More

I was walking around town in Killarney when I came upon this restaurant. I had the fish soup that I expected to be good but with the first taste I was blown away! It was fantastic...a must have! I loved the decor and warm welcoming vibes of Stonechat, matching that of John the owner and Narita the waitress. The pews... More

We stumbled into Stonechat completely blind, and finding a lunch spot is difficult as most places do dinner only in Killarney. The server was gracious, the soup not too salty and piping hot, and the grilled goat cheese sandwhich had so many complementary flavors I'm going to try and recreate it at home. My fiance very much enjoyed her lamb... More

Stonechat Restaurant is a hidden gem situated on a quiet alley off the main street in Killarney. The early evening special was E22 for 3 courses which was good value in Killarney. The choice on the menu was good , the portions generous and it was popular with local people. The staff were very friendly and service good.
