Location and contact

Set above Bricín Shop, Bricín Restaurant and Boxty House is a well known name on the lips of many people. Opened in November 1991, its popularity is down to the fine food produced by Owner/Chef Paddy McGuire and by the warmth of welcome and hospitality shown front of house by Owner Johnny McGuire. Between them they have an exceptional product that has been 21 years plus in the making.

We visit Killarney every December and Bricin is always on our list of restaurants to eat in. The staff are so friendly especially the owner who recognises us when we arrive and makes us feel so welcome. The food is fantastic and well presented

We had a very nice dinner at Bricin and found both the food and service excellent. Will definitely return to Bricin on my next visit to Killarney. Make reservations early as it is a popular place.

Had dinner in Bricin here recently with friends. As usual food was delicious, service was most efficient and friendly. Brilliant variety on menu. Obviously very popular restaurant judging by the amount of people waiting for a table. Tip - book well in advance

We had a great dinner at Bricin, solid service and great value for the money. Also enjoyed a couple pre-dinner pints across the street at Jack C's Pub. Good combination for authentic Irish experience.

Food is absolutely delicious and service is fantastic, best in Killarney but you need to book! Steak is cooked to perfection and the homemade deserts are scrumptious

We booked this restaurant based on the reviews prior to going on holiday in Killarney. It did not disappoint. Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, amazing hospitality. It was my husbands 60th birthday celebration and the owner pulled out all the stops to make the evening special......More

We started in the gift shop, and we were delighted. Better yet was going upstairs for a meal after 6. We were greated by one or the owners (the other brother was in the kitchen making our meal) and served beautifully by a welcoming staff....More

Sorry just seeing this now. Hope you haven't been. I would pull up their website and check the menu. I can't recall if there was a vegan boxty or not, sorry.
