“Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Thank you Geraldine & Staff for a lovely evening. Geraldine you were inviting from the moment we called and then you greeted us by name upon arrival and then entertained us with delightful instructions on how to enjoy your country! In addition to such charisma we enjoyed our dining experience as well. We ordered the fillet and it was tender and delicious. The lamb was easier to photograph so will post that picture. The lamb was perfectly prepared per medium rare and was tender and flavorful. We try to be diners that share the truth about our experiences and we have nothing to criticize about our evening. The setting was lovely just outside KIllarney, the hostess and her Staff were appropriately attentive and the timing of courses was excellent. The only criticism is that google maps was wrong (yet Geraldine made up for that over the phone). When i visit again i would go before sun set to take in the entire property ( going at sunset is our own fault).

Hi Noreen and thank you most sincerely for the wonderful review here on Trip Advisor

We're delighted that you had an enjoyable evening with us, and thank you also for pointing out things like the atmosphere and timing of everything, because all of these are in their own way just as important as the quality and presentation of the food.

The wrong location of Rozzers on Google Maps is something we only became aware of quite recently and which we are having a bit of difficulty in trying to get resolved. Hopefully the end is in sight for us though, and we are now waiting to receive a code from them which will allow the change to happen

Thanks again Noreen and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip

All the best. Michael & Geraldine

Hi Peg and sincere thanks for the wonderful review here on Trip Advisor - we really appreciate it

We're delighted that you enjoyed your meal in Rozzers, and we 're even more delighted that you're planning to come back again and this time stay with us in the Killeen House. The ultimate compliment any place like ours can get is when our guests choose to repeat the experience.

Just to let you know we're open until October 21st, when we close for the winter. We plan to re-open for the 2013 summer season in early April

Thanks again Peg and we look forward to welcoming you back to us. Michael & Geraldine

“Wonderful spot for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We enjoyed an excellent dinner at Rozzer's restaurant in Killarney. The staff was exceptionally accommodating. In fact, Derek, who took my reservation by phone, offered to give me directions, travel tips, etc., for our stay in Killarney. Rozzer's is off the beaten path, but well worth the drive 15 minutes from city center for those who have a car. The restaurant is attractive, cozy and friendly. All of our food was deliciously well-prepared, and the atmosphere was jovial and fun. This is a pricey place, but for a special dinner, it is well worth it.

Hi and thank you very much for your super review here on Trip Advisor, which we truly appreciate

Delighted that you enjoyed your meal with us and thank you in particular for your very kind comments about our man Damien, who was so courteous and helpful to you - it's really him and the rest of the staff here in Rozzers that create the warm and friendly atmosphere and ambience that you commented on

You're right on the button when you say that we're a pricey place, but that's only when you're opting to hit the top of the range menu items, like chateaubriand and fresh lobster and stuff like that, which costs us a fortune to buy in.

But we also have a great range of other choices for our guests to choose from, both in our Pub and also in the restaurant, so we like to think we have something to suit most (but obviously not all...!) budgets and tastes

Thanks again for the great review and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your Irish vacation

All the best. Michael & Geraldine

“Outstanding experience !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We recently stayed at the Kileen House and as per usual it exceeded all our expectations. I particulary look forward to dining at the restaurant and this time we invited some friends to join us for dinner.We were a little apprehensive prior to their arrival for fear we had 'talked up ' the quality of food and service too much . But we need not have worried. The food was exceptional, service and hospitality outstanding.The menfolk had the chateaubriand which was exceptional as was the rack of lamb and the turot ! Our friends who were on a three week holiday in Ireland were so impressed with their meal and with us for introducing them to this wonderful gem. Later we retired to the bar where we had a 'lively debate' on American politics and the Irish roads with some of the other Killeen House residents facilitated by the charming Gavin ! It was such a good evening. Well done to Paul and all his crew in the kitchen. .. Not forgetting Janet Karen Ciara Margurite and Damien . I forgot to mention that on the night in question the restaurant was extremely busy with a very large group of 22 next to us. This neither affected the quality of food nor service to our table.

Hi Alexander and thank you so much for the wonderful review (and also the Killeen House one too) here on Trip Advisor - we are extremely grateful to you

The best compliment of all for people like us is when people like you return again and again - and still manage to have a great time!

We're delighted that you picked out our chateaubriand for special mention - we take special pride in this dish, because we believe it shows quality Irish produce at it's world-class best

And thank you also for recommending us to your friends. We are hyper conscious that when people recommend us to others, what they are really doing is giving us a loan of their reputation and trusting that we will live up to what they have said about us..... We're glad we delivered for you on this occasion!

Thanks again and all the best to you all. Michael & Geraldine
