This is a family owned restaurant above the family's gift shop. When you climb the stairs you are warmly greeted by the gentile owner who guides you to your table in one of the restaurant's cozy little nooks (be sure to make a reservation). We had a hard time making our selections from the menu, but settled on the pork... More

Arrived in time for the early bird special. For appetizer my husband had the seafood chowder and it was tasty and I had the bruschetta. Tomatoes were fresh bread could have been toasted a bit longer. We both had the boxty for dinner, one lamb and one chicken and they were excellent. Would go back.

Our group of 8 enjoyed our evening at Bricin (pronounced Brick-een) and the prices were reasonable, staff was superbly friendly and the food--- was great! They serve something called Boxty- a potato type pancake with your choice of filling like beef strogonoff, or chicken or veggies-- it was fun!! They also served pavlova-- you haven't lived if you haven't eaten... More

We were steered here by our B&B guy who recommended the early-bird dinner. You should do the same. My daughter correctly identified the boxty as an Irish crepe (potato pancake enfolding a choice of fillings; we went for chicken-saffron: delicious!). She had crab claws as a starter; she loved them. I had a highly-serviceable seafood chowder: fresh, creamy, flavorful. Still,... More

Had read Tripadvisor ratings/reviews, so stopped by when arrived in town that afternoon and staff was most helpful in working 3 of us in for an early dinner that evening. We had an ample quiet table by a front window and a kind waitress. We each had the bargain 2 course special -chose either soup of the day or seafood... More

The food is wonderful, the staff are all very friendly and more than welcoming. You need to book in advance so not to miss out. The Boxty is great, and its the best seafood chowder Ive had in a long time.

First night of three back in Killarney. We looked up restaurants on trip advisor and are glad we did because at first it is not obvious where Bricin is (top floor of what looks like just a shop). Make the effort. The décor is lovely, the food delicious and well priced, the staff and management attentive. And then there is... More
