Lucy and Ryan were awesome!!! The restaurant has a warm inviting atmosphere and a smokey eclectic scent. The service was impeccable and they went above and beyond to be sure we enjoyed everything. They even allowed us to try several wines before we ordered our bottle. We both had steaks that were cooked to perfection! The upstairs seating is great... More

The Smokehouse - The Best Steak in Killarney! We went to the Smokehouse at the recommendation of our host and it was just outstanding. We each had a perfect sirloin, just excellent. If you are looking for the best beef In Killarney, this is the place!

I was delighted, when reading the menu at The Smokehouse, to discover they DO NOT have an early bird menu with the same uninspired and "authentic" slop you get at so many other places in this tourist town. The food was interesting, but not so far off the eaten path as to be off putting (think venison stew and monkfish... More

Burgers were super sized and all 4 plates came with excellent string fries served in Terra... More

Funky looking restaurant. Fantastic wine menu and simply amazing food. My girlfriend had the Salmon and it was the best-tasting Salmon I've ever eaten. Must return again!

I ate at The Smokehouse with my gf. Despite we hadn't reserved previously we got a table in 5 min. The staff is very friendly and the food is superb. I'd say that is one of the best restaurants in Killarney.
