The hotel recommended this restaurant to us. Food is average. The crab meat starter was good. My wife and my son had Seafood Platter. Strangely, the Oyster was a bit warm. My lamb chop was quite tender. The price was acceptable but service was average. It was a long long wait before the food came. Therefore, if you are in... More

On our first night in Killarney, we were unsure where to go for dinner but after reading the reviews on here, we chose to try Lord Kenmare's and am so glad we did. The restaurant is upstairs and has a lovely dining room feel to it and a great atmosphere. From the moment we were greeted to the minute we... More

I have been visiting Lord Kenmare's Restaurant for business and pleasure for three years and it has always been excellent. The food is consistently good and creative and the restaurant has the kindest and most flexible people you could hope to meet. A visit to the Kingdom will be incomplete without a meal at Lord Kenmare's. Barney Callaghan

We had a delicious and enjoyable meal here in last week. The duck was particularly delicious. Although our server was a bit inattentive, she was friendly and we would happily return.

We enjoyed our dinner at Lord Kenmore's. The service was fine but not special. The food was very good, but not memorable.
