We enjoyed our meal here so much. The food was excellent, particularly the desert. Service very good. Value for money amazing. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

We went here for dinner last night, for a family occasion. The food was amazing, as was the atmosphere. The staff were all very friendly, especially Lauren. They were great with the kids, and the drunken adults also.. We hope to be able to come here again soon.

First time dining at this restaurant having been a regular visitor to Killarney, was recommended by a friend and has certainly lived up to recommendation. I will be back in 2015. Food is great and the service and friendliness of the staff is a joy.

I first discovered the West End House restaurant a little under two years ago, having noticed that it had been taken over by native chef, John O'Leary. I have enjoyed John's food for many years in and around the Kerry area. After a number of visits to West End House, the establishment's fine dining experience remains superb. The restaurant boasts...

Had a lovely meal here and have to say was very impressed, surroundings were warm and relaxing and food was superb, we had a nice glass of Merlot in the bar while studying the menu and were seating just in time for starters to be served. Mains were soon after and the pork belly was outstanding. Meal was finished off... More

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful evening at the West End House at the end of September. During our week in Kerry, this was easily the finest restaurant we dined at. It was a breath of fresh air compared to the cheesy Irish restaurants in the area that can make you feel like an extra in Darby O'Gill and... More

Quality of the food and the super friendly staff is hard to match - prices are very reasonable as well. The decor is lovely! Second time we visited in a year - very consistent and would recommend to friends and family.

First visit and we will return, what a delight. The ambiance, courtesy of the staff, and fundamentally the standard of food. Every course was presented akin to what one would expect in a Michelin star restaurant. The standard is extraordinary, both visually and on the palate. Highly recommend this lovely restaurant in Killarney. Bernie and Noel Galway Oct 2014

That was my second time going to the West End and this time was for a work function. We had the whole restaurant for ourselves and I have to say the service was outstanding and the food equally wonderful! We had a set menu with various choices and I went for the duck salad and the monkfish for main .... More
