I got the distinct impression when I dined here that it was particularly popular with couples out for a romantic dinner for two and I could see why. The menu is a bit limited but everything tastes great and they have a decent wine menu as I recall.

Although this is not a review of the hotel as I did not stay there, the weekend I was in Killarney, the service of food in the bar on the Sunday afternoon was simply shocking. I was part of a group of 12 and just ordering a main. The waiter just didn't have a grasp of what he was up... More

When you stay in a hotel you would never think of a hotel restaurant being so amazing. The Chef must be thinking out of the box when it comes to the different flavours. The combinations and marriage of the flavours of the dishes are so well thought by a clever and imaginative chef, we have eaten in some of Irelands... More

This is an example of a very well run hotel. Terrific location, a short walk from the lakes and a 10 minute walk to town. The quality of the cooking is superbe. A lot of care and attention and planning go into the menu. You can taste this in the food.
