Enjoyable night

Great surroundings & good food. Can get busy so go early. Good service & friendly staff. Better for smaller groups.

Our B&B owner recommended we eat here and we weren't disappointed. Small and intimate, the restaurant was perfect. The food was some of the best we've had in Ireland. It's worth getting off the Main Street and finding gems like this.

My husband and I are both vegetarians, and finding veggie friendly places in Killarney proved tough. After a terrible meal at a pub our first night (and normally we're pretty happy with pub fare), we took to the internet and found Stonechat listed on a vegetarian website. Let me emphasize- this is NOT a vegetarian restaurant. So carnivores, don't be... More

Stopped in for soup today. Really good portion, served piping hot and a very flavoursome tomato and basil soup. Service was fast, efficient and friendly. The only thought I had was that I prefer traditional brown bread rather than the delicious nutty loaf.

This pub is down a small alley right off of High Street. It was recommended to us by friends in the U.S. We were not disappointed. We arrived for a drink and dinner. The waitress was very helpful and friendly. This pub was recently renovated yet has a lot of character. The "soup of the day"was vegetable and is was... More

Sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed a BLT served with the best thick cut chips I've had in ages. Washed down with a Guinness. (Complimentary water was brought as well). Staff very attentive and friendly. Had our visit been longer I would have liked to tried a full meal.

Recommended by our B&B host as a great choice for vegetarians, the food was amazing! Went back two days in a row because the atmosphere is just as awesome as the food! Don't miss out - good prices too!

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel, who said this was the best restaurant in Killarney. We definitely had our best nights at the Stonechat. Norita was our waitress--she was very friendly and made great recommendations. We started with the grilled goat cheese...and a few pints of Guinness. We all then had our own lamb shank, which...

I have recently been in Stonechat for both family and business meals. A wonderfully cosy setting, down one of Killarney's laneways, off High Street. The menu had a good variety and catered very well for a vegetarian in our group. Service was very pleasant and most helpful - attentive, while, not too intrusive. But best of all was the food...
