There were 9 of us and every one of us loved our meal. Great setting, we were upstairs in the main restaurant. I did what looked like a private dining room but didn't like this. No atmosphere in there. Limited menu but they make up for it in good quality food. Great Irish Coffee's too ! and a complementary glass... More

We had dinner tonight at The Limetree. It was perfect from start to finish. Crab Claws & Scallops starters were divine. Halibut & Hake to follow, delicious. Portions were perfect size for both of us. Service was professional, warm and friendly. Wine list was excellent. We had a lovely evening and highly recommend this wonderful restaurant to anybody visiting Kenmare.

Luckily, we were there the week before Christmas and each got a free glass of spiced mulled wine. It was perfect. The meal only got better from there. Highly recommend eating here, but be sure to make reservations.

Had the chicken for main course, just unreal is the only way I could describe it, and a brownie for desert. Got drinks on the house which I thought was a lovely touch! Will definitely be returning :(

I have recently returned to The Lime Tree and was another great experience. Now that the winter arrived, the roaring fire in the big fireplaces is very welcoming and gives a great atmosphere. Staff was very welcoming and friendly and the food was delicious. Will come back again.
