Hippest place to eat in Killarney!

This fairly new restaurant in the heart of Killarney works for all ages, but you'll find many younger folks in their twenties and thirties. The food is good and ample. After days of feasting on seafood, we craved land fare. The rib eye steak was good, if not a bit overcooked for medium... read more

Warm friendly Kerry welcome to a beautiful restaurant which serves beautiful locally produced food. Booking is advisable as this restaurant is really busy. Always a good sign.

The cab driver was right: The Smokehouse serves top notch good food late. Loved the salmon and ribs. Great trad music next door.

Went out for dinner in Killarney recently and as a huge carnivore had to try this place out after hearing some good things from local friends. To say I was impressed was an understatement. The quality of the steak was excellent and although I went for the 500g T-bone to say I wanted more is no exaggeration! Great sides brought... More

We both found the ribeye on the bone and the aged sirloin pretty special. We were sad when it was all gone, but very full. Drank enough lovely wine to congratulate the cow that tasted so good. Fast and friendly service. Good atmosphere.

We had an early dinner this evening on recommendations from family and The Lonely Planet book. When we first walked in, I wondered if we'd been duped, but was so pleasantly surprised! Our meal was nothing short of excellent. We had the honey glazed chicken wings to start, which was a hefty portion for an appetizer, as well as delicious.... More

If you like steak this is the place to go fantastic and you will not leave hungry as portion size is huge. The menu is quite small but they have on it they do well

We had a tremendous meal here. Beautifully cooked meats - as in really beautifully, with great skill in their Mediterranean-style oven - and superlatively friendly service. Great with our young kids S well. Cannot recommend more highly!

10oz Sirlion, 28 day aged and cooked to perfection. Good staff and side dishes, decent wine and nice ambience. But above all a great steak

We had a wonderful meal here, in a charming, eclectic restaurant. We can highly recommend the steak, the crab claws and the chicken wings. Impressive wine list too. Extremely friendly staff. No hesitation in recommending this fantastic restaurant.
