Stumbled across the Smokehouse by accident en route to a customer meeting, decided to go in for breakfast after driving down from Dublin.

Service was excellent and food was incredible, very hogh quality and portions were generous.

This is a must for breakfast when visiting Killarney

“Incredible food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

Was in Killarney this past weekend with my boyfriend, we were walking one of the evening trying to decide where to go to eat when we passed by the smoke house. Inside its cosy with a chilled atmosphere. Service was very prompt, we were seated & served without delay. The most important bit, the food: It was gorgeous!!. Both of us had steak which was cooked medium-rare to perfection & I also had half a lobster, it melted in your mouth It was soo good we went back again the next night without thnking twice

“Relaxed Fine Dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

I have been to this restaurant plenty of times and have to say they have the finest rib-eye steak I've ever eaten. The staff are relaxed, without it impinging too much on the level of service, but if you are looking for a nice chilled out evening with some good food and nice wine then this is the place for you. Oh, and get the chips and not the baked potato with your meal, you won't regret it!

“A little different from rest and very tasty.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011 via mobile

The Smokehouse immediately caught our attention as we searched out a place for dinner. It's different from the other high street establishments with a very relaxed appearance and no tackiness. The steak jumped off the menu at us so we went for it.
The atmosphere was relaxed with chillout music in the background. Service is very friendly. Food was excellent and served on wooden boards which is a nice touch and a break from the norm. We were served with some nice bread before the meal arrived. The main courses should be plenty big enough for most.
Food prices are very reasonable. Apparently the wine was nice. The beer selection is a bit limited but that is a minor gripe.
Would definitely recommend the Smokehouse.

We went for lunch and were very impressed. The crab was delicious, steak sandwich very tasty and the Sauvignon Blanc was good. We would go back.
