One thing that’s never in short supply in Irish pubs and restaurants is good service. I can’t imagine how the Irish cope on coming over to Blighty and encountering some of the dodgy welcomes I’ve had in pubs over here. Maybe some of these very same pubs are used in their training sessions as how not to do it. Anyway,... More

Charming and small but Big on service and exceptional food. Very good food and excellent service. Nice window view to quiet evening streets of Killarney. One of the best meals to date in Ireland.

Attended a dinner event with a party of approximately 20 last night. We had a prix fixe menu for the group. Service was good, as well as the food. I only rated it 4 stars as it just didn't have the "wow" factor that I've experienced elsewhere, however that could be since we were with a large group. Food was... More

This "finer" dining restaurant situated ABOVE Murphy's was fabulous! The seafood was as fresh as could be and the steak was cooked to perfection! I had a chicken liver pate appetizer that was so silky & delicious I am still thinking about it. Make reservations!

I literary don't know where to begin with this review ...other than I have being raving about it for the last few days to anyone that would listen! I was in the Lord Kenmare for a late dinner last Sunday with my husband and cousins. We were all equally thrilled with our gastronomic delights. I had the chicken liver parfait... More

This is my 5th time to this wonderful restaurant and it never disappoints! Yes it is on the expensive side but the food is absolutely wonderful. I recommend the Lord Kenmare's Seafood Platter...delicious! Great selection of wines with superb service from start to finish. I can't wait for my 6th visit...

Although we had to wait due to no reservations, our issue, they worked us in and we had a great meal. There were 6 of us and we rated the best meal so far in Ireland. Go for it, worth the wait.

One of the nicer, fancier places in town, right on one of the main streets. Had the seafood platter... a LOT of food (could have served two), all really good, especially the mussels. Were I to go back, I would see if I could just get mussels.

We were a party of 12; the staff took very good care of us. Our meals were delicious - would go back there in a heart beat. It was within walking distance of our hotel, the Killarney Royal which made it even better!
