Had dinner here last weekend. It was a treat as it was my husbands birthday. Lovely romantic table for two candle lit. Fire lighting up the opposite side a nice welcome with the weather outside. Menu has a great selection to please everyone. We skipped starters as we were starving. Both had the steak, cooked to perfection. Gorgeous fresh veg... More

My husband and I dined here recently and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The atmosphere was cozy (and romantic), and the service was efficient and friendly. We both found our food to be WAY above average. The two starters of smoked salmon and soup du jour (mushroom), were both delicious. Main courses were the duo of lamb and the chicken which... More

We have visited the Lime Tree before and I should have written the review then, but to be honest this visit surpassed the last. Starters of Sneem Black Pudding and crab claws were superb, and the main courses (mine an amazing seabass, and my partners a steak) were divine. My partner is still raving about his steak today! The waiter... More

Kenmare is blessed with many lovely places to eat at all levels but this restaurant should be one of your first choices. Nice atmosphere, lovely food and good service makes it a treat to share with friends. We went on a Monday evening and it looked as if they were much busier than they expected to be, with quite a...

We ordered from the early bird menu and every course was perfectly done, and locally sourced. Atmosphere is romantic. Highly recommend the seabass, and the duck, as well as the panna cotta and the Harringtons of Kenmare Loaf Bread and butter pudding.

We just rented the Lime Tree restaurant for a party of 60 people for our son's christening. The restaurant is in an old cottage with a long-standing history and has an original and warm interior. The open gallery space lends itself perfectly to renting it out for a private party. We like our food and tend to be quite critical... More

We had a wonderful meal at The Lime Tree. As vegans, it can be difficult finding great meals when traveling through small towns. The Lime Tree welcomed us and presented us with great meals. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. This is a restaurant worth visiting. Great atmosphere and great food. Very vegan friendly.
