Diners are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out in Kenmare; however The Lime Tree still manages to stand out above the rest. The food is delicious, the staff attentive and the atmosphere cosy and intimate. It never disappoints.

I have been to the Lime Tree once before and made it my mission to eat here again last weekend. This was one of the best meals I have had in a very long time. The restaurant is... More

My husband and I enjoyed a truly first class dinner. The atmosphere was charming, service was attentive, and there were a variety of truly tempting options on the menu. The lamb was delicious, the wine list had a nice variety - you should definitely eat here and enjoy!

A beautiful venue in lovely Kenmare provides the setting for some really excellent dishes. We really enjoyed the fresh Lobster, but the menu was wide and varied. Service was top class as well. Looking forward to a return visit!!!

This is my third time in this restaurant - I would go again and again and again and again. The food is absolutely delicious. I dined here last Saturday June 29th with my husband and two adult children, imagine - four starters and no complaints, followed by four main courses (3 fillet steaks and lamb) and everyone was smiling -...
